What kept me busy?

I am really sorry for lack of updates for the past months…I know I've been missing and was not able to give you any heads up. But I am really trying to squeeze in a little time to update this blog. You might be wondering what kept me busy.

Most of you know that I really love and enjoy baking. I do bake and accept orders but I have to admit that there’s still so much for me to learn. And one of the major things that I really need to improve on is decorating cakes. Last November 2010 I have decided to take my baking skills to the next level I’ve enrolled in a Master Cake Decorating (Wilton Method) Class. Unfortunately, at that time there was no available class and I still have to wait for months before they re-open the class again. At that time there was an on going Fondant class and they have to finish the course before the Master class re-opens.

To cut the long story short, I started the class last March 16; it was a 10 half day session and classes are held once a week. And because of this I have to move my days off from Saturday-Sunday to Wednesday – Sunday, since my class is every Wednesday. I was a little hard for me to keep up with this schedule because every Wednesday we have a call meeting at work, so even though it is my day off, I still have to report to work just to attend the meeting with the client then go home after. If you’re working for a BPO company, you really have to be very flexible with time. I guess we really need to do little sacrifices…It is very tiring but I assure you it’s all worth it!

Here are some of the pictures during the class. (Photos courtesy of  Mrs. Galang’s Kitchen

I was able to finish the course last week and on our graduation day we have to make a 3 tier wedding cake and we should come up with our own design. This is it guys...I'm really happy and I guess I can say that I am on the right track...this is what I really want and I am truly happy that I am starting to make things happen. 

How bout you guys? Did you do something recently that might just help you reach your goals or dreams little by little? Remember dearies...one step at a time! :)  Here I come, Advance Cake Decorating Class!

Sweet Day to you All!
