NYC: Class @ Confetti Cakes

Earlier this week, I had one of the greatest opportunities in my cake designing career.  I went to New York with my brother and 2 girlfriends of mine for 5 days.  While I was visiting, I had a private lesson with cake designer Elisa Straus, owner of Confetti Cakes, at her uptown kitchen.  She creates the most beautiful designs out of her commercial kitchen in the Upper West Side.  I was so grateful to work with such an inspirational and talented staff.  Over the two-day lesson, I learned a variety of techniques and tips that will definitely help my career progress.  I was able to make one of her signature cakes, as well as practice other decorating skills.  Here are some pics of our creation!!
