Workshops - June, July, September 2012

Oh you do like your cupcakes! So much so that even though it's a bit late in the day I am changing the workshops. They will still run on the original dates 16th June, 14th July and 1st September 2012. However there will now be two 2 hour workshops on each of those days. Workshop 1 will run from 10am-12 and will show you how to make lots of little animals for your cupcakes. Workshop 2 will run 2-4pm and will show you how to make little figures for your cupcakes (boy, girl fairy etc). The workshops will be held at the same place, the Roebuck Hotel, Ware, Hertfordshire and the cost is £30 per person per workshop. There is a maximum number of 10 places per workshop so nobody gets ignored and they are suitable for anybody including complete beginners. Come along, get sticky, drink coffee, chat and go home with something you didn't know you could do!
The main website will be updated as soon as possible to accomadate these changes. If you are interested please e-mail me so I can add you to the list.

Should anyone be interested, you can now find me on Facebook under " Carol Deacon Cakes".
My website should be undergoing a bit of a makeover shortly so the links to Facebook, Twitter and You Tube will be made more prominent. It's finding the time for all this time saving technology!

Cake International Advert

Hah! been feeling a bit off colour today but have managed to upload (or is it download?) anyway whatever the direction, I have managed to put a banner for the forthcoming NEC cake show on here.
To anyone competent with a computer this will seem a huge under achievement but it's a small digital step forward for the central processing unit in this old cake decorating mainframe's brain!

You Tube

Being a bit of an internet dinosaur, it's taken a while but courtesy of my 12 yearl old daughter I have just produced two short films on You Tube to back up two of the cake designs from "Fabulous Party Cakes and Cupcakes". One is "Happy Hamsters" and the other is a "Simple Rose Cupcake". Hopefully now I've got the hang of it, more will follow.
My channel is "carolmdeacon" but just typing "Carol Deacon" into videos on the google or You Tube home pages should get you there too.
The website is about to undergo some updating so eventually there should be a direct link on that too.
It all takes sooooooo much time though!!
