As most of you know, in addition to writing, I also work at my local library. One of the fun things we do for the community is to host occasional child and adult crafts. I've never attended a craft class since they're always on a Wednesday night and I'm usually home working hard on a manuscript. However this month's craft featured cupcakes! Making a cupcake stand and decorating a cupcake with fondant. Considering I'm writing a new series called--THE CUPCAKE CLUB--I couldn't resist joining in!
Our branch manager (and good friend), Beth B (who's an amazing baker) made the cupcakes and the fondant from scratch. Our task was to create our stands and to decorate our cupcake. I'm not very 'crafty' nor have I ever decorated a cupcake, especially with fondant. Behold my fun evening in this slide show!
I'm so glad I got out and attended this event. Even though I'm not particularly talented with crafts or decorating cupcakes (you should have seen some of the other ladies creations!) I had a blast trying. I also very much enjoyed the kinship with friends and library patrons. What abut you? Are you 'crafty'? Do you ever attend local craft/art workshops?
