East End Cake Decorating Club - Feb. 15th Meeting

January 18th Workshop was led by David Hall on making a decorated Valentine’s box using graham wafers, and molded chocolates to fill the box. Each participant made 2 boxes, 2 chocolate hearts on sticks, and 8 caramel-filled hearts. Here's a photos taken by Lyne.

February 15th Workshop will be baby cradles made of gumpaste or pastillage and using heart cutters. Lyne Coderre and Diane Kingston will lead the workshop. Various others will bring different cutters and/or baby cradles they have made, and possibly demonstrate them.

  • The workshop will consist of participants cutting out the parts and colouring/decorating them. If time permits, a baby for the cradle will be made. However, as the sugar paste must dry before assembling, the leaders will demonstrate how to assemble the cradle using pieces made previously and dried.
