Cake Decorator in Training

What on earth was I thinking? Today I signed up for a cake decorating class at Michael's. I've always wanted to take my baking to the next level (in terms of presentation, at least), and since the class was 50% off this month, and I could use my 40% off coupons from Hobby Lobby to get some of my supplies, and I love frosting, I didn't see any reason not to sign up. Even after using coupons at Hobby Lobby to buy the most expensive items, and using my class discount to get the rest at Michael's, the supplies still cost about 5 times as much as the class. And I still have to go to the supermarket to buy ingredients for the frosting and cake I'll need to make before the first class on Tuesday! At least I'll be able to eat my class projects.

Good Luck with the cake decorating! Its a slippery slope...I signed up for a series of 6 classes 6 years ago and am just about to open my own cake business...aardvarkcakes.com
