I hope everyone has had a wonderful January. It’s almost over, you know; and a couple exciting things are happening on February 2. First off, it’s Groundhog Day. So if you’d like to celebrate the little guy seeing his shadow, you might want to make a bundt cake, sprinkle crushed chocolate cookies on the top and use a devil’s food cake or Twinkie(TM) decorated to look like a groundhog popping out of the hole.
February 2 also marks the long-awaited return of Lost. Since this is the final season (gasp!), you might be having a Lost premiere party. You could make a cake of the island, of course, or of the plane, or you could simply make a white sheet cake and pipe the Dharma logo on it in black.
Site Spotlight: Cake Central
As many of you may already be aware, Cake Central is a place for cake decorators to share photographs, techniques, recipes and encouragements. The site also features contests, links and articles.
Now, however, Cake Central has launched a magazine. And who should be featured on the cover but none other than Kerry Vincent, host of the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show, frequent judge on Food Network’s Challenges, member of ICES Sugarcraft Hall of Fame and gracious guest star of Dead Pan. The cover promises Mrs. Vincent will dish on reality cake-tv as well as share her personal story.
Check out the magazine and see what you think. And please share your comments with Killer Cakes!
