I remember when I was happy with just a simple sheet cake. A dozen cupcakes. Who knows, maybe with some sprinkles on top.
Times sure have changed. Thanks to televison shows like Cake Boss, baking and designing cakes has become the latest trend. I had a chance to sit in on Teresa Doria's cake design course at the Dolce & Salato Cooking School in Maddaloni (Ce) last week.
Twenty five years of cake decorating experience sitting beside me,. patiently turning icing into a nativity scene. Joeseph...Mary...a sweet baby Jesus.
Other students were completing their cakes as well. Santa Clauses, snowmen, Christmas trees.
Yes, I remember when I was happy with a simple sheet cake, and a dozen cupcakes with a few spinkles on top. At least I can still lick the spoon!
