And that's a wrap!. My first Craftsy cake decorating class: "Make-ahead techniques for stunning Cakes" is filmed!!!!
The class launches in September and I believe that not only it will be BEAUTIFUL, but jam packed with amazing information. Here I share all the tips and techniques that have brought great success to my business and I illustrate this techniques with many of my favorite designs!
My most sincere THANKS to my amazing Craftsy team. You are TRUE magicians and experts in what you do. Your kindness and generosity made this experience beyond memorable. I can't thank you enough for all that you did!!!
From left to right: Nick, in charge of the recoding of the class; Miwha, my assistant and right hand for 5 full days (You can tell how awesome she is, by the fact that she wore her Bengals shirt for me!); Rob, camera man extraordinaire; and the boss, Stephanie, my super talented and sweet producer!!!!
Below, is Tommy, production assistant and project manager, and yes..."he's so rad".! I had already been told that he was the best, and always willing to help! Not only did he helped me with the step, by step instructions on how to ship my cakes, but also bought last minute items that I need for the class...all with that huge smile!
There were so many amazing professionals on board!
I wish that I had taken pics with Kristin, my super amazing editor; Danica, my gorgeous and talented make up artist and hair stylist (I just had to tell her, Could you make me look like you?), and Molly, my assistant producer who made me feel so welcomed!
After each lesson was filmed, we had to take a 10 min recording of the quiet room. They call this "room tone"...on the last one, I took time to say a short prayer and to give thanks for this amazing opportunity!
Can't share more about this with you!!!
