Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I had a glorious two weeks off thanks to my job.  I spent some quality time with family and friends, relaxing, and happily working on some home improvement projects which I hope to blog about soon.

This next week I hope to spend some time thinking about what I want to get accomplished for the new year, but in terms of cake decorating, I have only one major goal.

The last couple of years, I have become increasingly drawn to beautiful, elaborate royal icing work and piping, and working with royal icing is something I really want to add to my skill set. This book was a Christmas present to myself. 

It is absolutely gorgeous and so inspiring. 

Seriously, how beautiful is that work.  Inspiring, but intimidating.

  1. Ooooh, that is gorgeous. Having seen the delicate work you do with sugar flowers, I bet you will ace this new skill too.
