I have to tell you that was probably the best cake I have ever had in my life!
It was such a huge hit at the Luau! Everyone went nuts over it! I sure wish you lived closer so I could order your cake for every special event we have and especially for my birthday in January! The Biscotti was wonderful as well and how much I appreciate that as well!
Anyway thank you so very much for your wonderful cake and kindness!
Ps I will send you the picture of the little girl that we told her the cake was for her 12th Birthday! She told us it was the best Birthday cake she ever had!

First of all, thank you again for Saturday. It was a great class and I'm looking forward to starting again . I can't keep my eyes off the booklet for Course 3. Everything looks so much fun to make.
I downloaded the pictures to my computer and I'm sending you a few. I wasn't sure which ones you would like the best so I included one of the top of the cake, one with me and the cake, one where you can see the detailing of the girl and another one where you can see the whole cake.
When I took the cake to my knitting class people were at awe. To start with, they thought the flowers were real and said how could I get them not to wilt. They couldn't believe their eyes when I said they were edible. They loved the icing, nobody noticed it was Crico icing. My friend had baked the cake and it tasted so good too (a Joy of Cooking recipe for ). It was a success!!
Ok, so I think this is it for now. THANK YOU again for being such a great teacher. I truly enjoy the classes and I always leave full of ideas and very inspired.
Have a great week, Lily.

Thank very much

Thank you for asking, Joey is doing great. We're getting ready to celebrate his first birthday next month.
I'm glad that Jeff (of Ben Franklin) has been helpful. You're the type of Wilton Instructor that he's needed for several years.
Thank you so much for the web-sites. I'll check them out.
I just finished making the from the recipe you gave me. WOW!! It's really good! I'm going to put it in the refrigerator now so that I can use it later in the week. It will be fine, won't it?
I also made a chocolate cake, this time from scratch and I'll freeze that one so that it's ready for later in the week too.
Oh, and I just finished a class buttercream icing batch to practice the rose and what we've learned so far so that I can do it with confidence with the other kind of icing.
Thank you so much again for the recipe and for being such an inspiration. Your classes are always fun and I always leave feeling I learned a lot and I've just started!!
Have a great week!
Ps: I can't wait for Course 2.
I just looked at your photographs online. I had looked a few weeks ago. What a lot of work and time to update it all! I can't believe how good everyone else's cakes are! Ours, except for Angie's were nothing compared to the other classes. And even the Course I classes were fantastic. Congratulations.
You really are a great teacher. We all had a great time, and had fun during the class. I think we of course will have to work diligently next time to catch up to all the other students.. (or was that just photo-shop with professional cake photographs, with the students?)
We had a lot of fun, loved your class, think you are a great teacher, and had some great lunches afterwards at Cucina Cucina. It was nice for me to get to know Angie and Lynn, as I had never met them before and they both live just a few blocks away.
I really enjoyed class this evening! I was kind of nervous about doing this, but when I brought my cake home this evening, my family was amazed! I am really looking forward to the next class. You are a wonderful and patient teacher.

Hello Lily: It was so nice to hear from you and your kind words. You really do a great job. I was surprised that you did’nt get the best of show!.. I really think that you have a great talent and hope that you keep it up. I was hoping to go the Ices convention, but now I don’t think that I will make it. That time is the busiest time of year for for wedding cakes.
I'm planning on teaching some different ways of decorating cakes, that is why I get all the best work here in Calgary., as well as the flavors that I have. I do look forward to seeing you and some more of your work in the future. Kate

Thanks for sending the pictures and for wishing me a safe trip to Spain. I'm excited for the anticipation of making a cake for my dad and I already have some good ideas about what the cake would look like. I've been buying supplies for my sister like crazy so now the challenge is to get them all in my suitcase. Today it's the trial day for packing.
It felt really weird to not have to get ready for the class and I found myself talking about cake decorating a whole lot with anybody who had some time to listen. It's nice to have Bonnie, the assistant teacher from my school, taking a class (she is in your Monday Course 1 class, the one with the cop I beleive) because I can talk to someone at school that understands how much fun cake decorating is.
When I showed my sister the picture of the I made thinking of her and her fiancé, she fell in love with it and asked me if I would make hers. I really would like to do it but I have to see how feasable that is in Spain since it´s so hot and I don´t know how fondant or buttercream would be like there. I don´t want to get to the reception place and find a big puddle on the floor that used to be a cake.
I had a friend over yesterday and I made this little cake I´m sending you pictures of. My friend has a very restrictive diet so I had to search for quite a while until I found a recipe with ingredients she could have. It´s a chocolate almond torte cake, filled with raspberry jam and covered with chocolate fondant. The lacy part is buttercream and the roses and leaves are fondant too. I saw a cake somewhere that portrayed the same lacy idea and I decided to give it a try. I did it on Saturday, which I´m glad for, because I hurt the area right under my neck as I was checking what time it was when I was lying down in bed and I´ve been in quite a pain since then. I thought you would want to see the pictures. It was funny because when I was doing it, if something didn´t quite work the way I had pictured, I said to myself: Ok, don´t panic, what would Lily do in this case?
I just wanted to thank you one more time for all you´ve taught me. I do feel I have the skills I´ll need to continue down this path and keep getting better and better and that´s thanks to you. Please keep me informed when you do that elegant fondant class (or the victorian fondant you mentioned in the last class) and if you ever decide to do a gum paste flower class. I want to continue learning about cake decorating so unless there is a conflict of schedule, I´ll be a sure sign up.
Ok, Lily, have a wonderful summer and thanks again for all your help and advice.

GREAT WEBSITE LILY. BEAUTIFUL WORK
I looked at your web site. It is BEAUTIFUL! The Frog King Cake is adorable...you EXTREMELY talented.
I just wanted to thank you for all of your advise and kindness that you shared at the convention. My husband really likes the gumpaste plant that you gave me. Thanks again :o)
I e-mailed my Wilton instructor as soon as I got home. She is so proud that I went & placed at the convention. It is only 2nd place ribbons with both of my cakes...but, looking at all of the beautiful pieces gives me bigger goals to achieve.
Take Care, & please keep in touch. I would love to hear about the or any pictures that you would like to share. I hope you have a wonderful time in Orlando!
