Do you like to decorate cakes?! {Giveaway}

Elisa Strauss decorating handbag cakes!

Back in Fall 2008, I was browsing a Barnes & Noble in Dallas, Texas and picked up The Confetti Cakes Cookbook by Elisa Strauss. Cute, I thought! I remember flipping through the pages on my plane back to Nashville and getting so excited to experiment with this sweet art. Little did I know that a few years later Elisa would be providing me a sweet endorsement for my Frostings book (summer 2013)! EEEEH. Seriously tickled pink. Elisa is beyond talented. Here are a few of my favorite things about Elisa…

  • She made Charlotte and Harry’s wedding cake during season 6 of Sex and the City
  • Elisa was on Food Network’s Extreme Cake Challenge (and won it of course!)
  • Her books have mentioned in InStyleMartha Stewart WeddingsMarie ClaireSeventeenElleVogueModern BrideNew York magazine, BRIDES, Elegant Bride, and The Knot.

How to make a Handbag Cake! Elisa just launched a CAKE DECORATING VIDEO on (which by the way is a fabulous resource) and you can use this link here to save 50% off the class. So if you’re an aspiring cake decorator (or just love creating beautiful cakes for special family celebrations and friends), then take her video lesson and learn how to make a Handbag Cake! This would be perfect for bridal showers, birthdays, etc. Plus, you can use the techniques you’ll learn for other cake creations too. Can you even BELIEVE that is CAKE in that picture?! I’m totally wow’d!
