Barbara's Basic Cake Decorating Class...here are some of my students.
You will be shown how to ice buttercreme frosting for a round single layer cake and how to make dots, stars, shells, leaf work, figure piping, writing, roses, carnations, daisies, and mums. It is up to you to practice! Start squeezing a rubber ball now to build up your strength for decorating. The class is usually held on a Monday for approx. 2 hours from 9am–11am. *Barbara teaches private lessons only at this time.
Call to set up an appointment for your lesson!
As a little girl I loved to cook & bake, but especially decorate with foods! I won my 1st cake contest in elementary school. (They felt sorry for me because the top layer fell off.) A few years later when graduating from my first cake class, the instructor informed me that I have a talent from God! PTL I dreamed for many years about opening a bakery in Grand Prairie & waited on the Lord for 19 years when He opened that door. Since then, God has opened many doors for the bakery to excel.
In 1975, I demonstrated cakes for Sanger Harris in the downtown Dallas, Preston Center, & Valley View stores. The class was taught at Sanger's in the Preston Center location. Previously, classes were taught in New Orleans, Louisiana. I had the privilege of demonstrating cake decorating on the cooking stages @ the Infomart (located in Dallas), the Fort Worth Convention Center, several schools, women's clubs, and churches. Our cakes have graced such places as: Four Season's Country Club, Fort Worth Club, Reunion Tower, Hilton Garden Inns, Marriot Hotels, & so many more that I cannot remember. I was interviewed on radio stations: KCBI 90.9 FM, formally KVTT 91.7 FM, & K104 FM. I was interviewed on the TV Show..."What's Happening" in Grand Prairie with former Mayor Pro-Tem Ruthe Jackson...also an interview with the Grand Prairie Reporter. A few years ago, we had a gingerbread house on a TV commercial with Ronald McDonald Charities & Southwest Airlines. It aired from California to New York during the holiday season. The children were happily standing around the gingerbread house and decorating it with tons of frosting and candy. They loved it! It made the press & to the first 3 people that came into the shop asking for my autograph, I said, " Get out of here! Are you kidding me?" After that, well, I just started signing! LOL Praise God! Since the bakery has been open now for 20 years, we have met some of the most AMAZING customers!
WE LOVE OUR CUSTOMERS!
May God bless each one of you in a special way.
