|Is this not GORGEOUS?? She's teaching a class in the next few weeks on this technique, and I can't wait to take it!|
|Linda McClure's Cricut Demo. She did not use the Cricut Cake, only the Baby Bug with Make The Cut|
Linda also demonstrated the Silhouette machine, which, combined with a laptop and printer with edible ink, can both print on and cut out gumpaste. I was talking with Linda before her demo and she said "Wait until you see the Silhouette. It will make you hate your Cricut Cake".
The Silhouette machine was a neat demo to watch, but honestly, the cut and print images just were not the look I like on cakes. Some of the display cakes they had really looked like you printed out paper and glued it to your cake. Just not the asthetic I like. PLUS, you'd have to buy a seperate printer and edible inks to get it all to work. I'd rather stick to what I know and love. No worries, I'm still a Cricut Cake lover! :)
|We got to watch an AWESOME SugarVeil demo. I can't wait to use this stuff!|
Mike thought this was an excellent idea and decided to carve his face. This was the final product, all carved covered, and airbrushed in under 45 minutes!
|Is this not AMAZING????? It was incredible to watch.|
Mike and his cake.
Don't tell anyone, but I think he is adorable and after watching him work I may have a teeny tiny crush on him. I'm pretty sure I asked more questions then anyone else in the room ;)
I cannot WAIT for the next ICES event. I always learn so much and come away so inspired.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend, I can't wait to share some of my new projects with you next week!
