Last week Amara attended ABC Cake Camp and had a great time honing her skills. We love ABC Cakes. They made our wedding cake and many of Amara’s birthday cakes.
Cake Camp was from 10AM to noon Monday through Friday. There were probably 10 other students in the class and Amara was thrilled when one of them was a friend of hers from school! The two girls sat next to each other for the entire week. Cake Camp would have been fun anyway but sharing it with a friend made it even better.
I was lucky and got to go with her Mommy on four of those days to drop Amara off and pick her up. While Amara did Cake Camp, we spent the time together shopping (mostly produce, Michael’s and Joann’s) and having fun just spending time together. It also meant I got to listen to Amara read to us from the curriculum what they would be creating each day. They had three different teachers over the 5 days, “each teaching their own specialty” as Amara explained it.
It also meant I was there to see and photograph (poorly) with my phone all of their wonderful creations. The one day I didn’t go with them Jenna sent me a picture of her amazing cake. Amara brought that cake with her Saturday night and we all had a big piece of it. It was an Under the Sea themed cake. She was especially proud of her turtle and sea horse she made with marbled fondant using a candy mold!
Jenna and I both love to bake and decorate but neither of us have ever been very successful with fondant so since Amara has officially had a class on how to make animals out of fondant she is officially the Fondant Queen and will have to share her knowledge with Mommy and me. I’ve already found some really cute Garden Cupcakes that are topped with little fondant vegetables that I am hoping she can teach me how to make!
This week Amara is off to college! A weeklong class in video gaming and programming! For weeks now, I have been talking about Amara starting college! I just love the way it sounds even if it is just a one-week summer school course!
She is so well rounded! We are so very proud!
