This past weekend I had the lovely opportunity to travel all the way to Doha, Qatar and teach cake classes! It was my first international class and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I was hosted by The Baking Studio and taught two days of the floral buttercream cake and one day of the hammered metal cake with wafer paper flowers. The students were amazingly talented and creative as you can see from the results of their cakes! I had my youngest students ever, 12 and 15 year old sisters, and they were so great. Cake is really for all ages and I loved seeing how everyone's personal style, color choices and arrangements reflected their unique creativity. Thank you to all the students that attended, it was great meeting you all and you should be very proud of the cakes you created! Also, special thanks to Safinaz and her team at The Baking Studio. Your hospitality was overwhelming and these classes were only possible because of all the preparation and hard work you put in.
