I'm going to make this a super quick post since I need to go to bed.
Today Winona's piano teacher came over and taught me how to decorate cakes. She is a professional cake maker. In fact, her son was asked to go on cupcake wars. She is amazingly talented and took three hours out of her day to teach me! I'm one lucky girl.
I baked and frosted this cakeSo, she taught me how to make boarders around the cake using tips and the plastic bags. I didn't know how or if I would be able to do it. Surprisingly, I didn't do too bad. In fact, she said that the cake I did didn't look any different than that you would find at the Byerly's bakery! Whoot Whoot!! She also taught me how to make little flower candies to put on cakes. They were a bit difficult because my hand would get very tired. I pushed through it though and was determined to get some cute candies made. They will take a bit more practice, but I was thrilled that I had the dexterity to do it. Finally, she showed me how to frost a cupcake. We're not talking using a butter knife and smearing the frosting on. I used the tips and bags again for this and they turned out so cute!!
I am so grateful. When I was correctly diagnosed three years ago, the first thing I did was bake cupcakes. I have come so far and can only imagine how much more I will learn to do when it comes to baking cakes.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
