Long Time no Speak
I know that is all my fault lol but sometimes life gets a little busy.
So lets do a quick run down of all that has happened lately.
Shanghai for Squires Kitchen
I was so lucky to be get the incredible opportunity to go to Shanghai on behalf of Squires Kitchen. There I was a judge at the FIPGC China Team selections which was a wonderful experience and I learnt so much from the talented and knowledgable judges on the team.
I also assisted with the tutor selection for Squires Kitchen where I met wonderful new tutors.
Finally, I spent two days teaching my Fairy Cottage class to 18 talented students from all over the world.
My First Book!
November 2019 saw the release of my first Book, Cyril's Cake Adventure. I am so thrilled with the way it has been received, the reviews and feedback ....I really am so grateful.
There are things I would change.......naturally.................. because I did everything. From the layout, to the graphics right down to setting up a Publishing company.
You learn a lot. Like you may have checked, double, triple, quadruple, umpteenth, but still things slip through (like the holding graphics for the turtle template), but I have learnt from them and al ready to start Book 2. I have two projects already made for it
If you would like to purchase a copy, visit my website.
My New School
In January I opened the doors to my new school.
It is in Navigation Park in Abercynon and is a wonderful room that I converted from an office to a teaching facility for maximum of 9 students.
All of my weekly classes in South Wales are now taught there as well as day classes and holiday classes for children and adults.
I also use it to hold my Wedding cake consultations which means that my clients now get to see my cakes on display rather than just looking through albums or slideshows.
National Bakery Awards
Last but most definitely not least.
I had a fantastic surprise to discover that I had been nominated and was successful to be a county winner at the National Bakery Awards.
Sadly, I am not able to attend the awards as I will be teaching, but I would like to win my fellow County winners congratulations and good luck to find out who the Regional and National winners are.
So there you go!
Lots and lots of excitement............and that is just some of the big stuff!
Facebook has all of the other fun things that have happened.
But for this week, my exciting things lead me to the Cake Professionals Conference and Awards where I will be with my folder, pad and pen and hoping to learn as much as possible, then put on my posh frock and cheer on my cake friends at the awards.
Go on their facebook page, because it is not just the conference, Phil and Christine regularly post interesting and educational live videos where you can engage with your fellow cake makers.
I really hope to see you there.
