Suite 106 Cupcakery were nice enough to open their lab & design center for an awesome night of decorating. The class included 4 themed cupcakes and 4 themed cookies. The instructor was such a sweet young lady and very helpful with any and all questions we had. And of course Rebecca & Christy were there. Let me add that they are the most down to earth ladies, you'd never know they ran the most successful cupcake business in the Inland Empire, let alone were Cupcake Wars champions.
I had been preparing for this day in my head for the past week. I tweeted, emailed, and facebooked my desire to attend this class. Once I got the email saying there was a spot available I was beyond excited. I had to wait for the phone call to give my information. When that phone call came I know I scared Michael (Suite 106 employee) to death. I screamed and told him how much of a fan I was and everything in between...I'm sure he thought I was more than looney tunes. But hey, how often can you say you took a class from the winner of Cupcake Wars??!!!

When I pulled up to the "lab" I was very happy to see the signature "Suite 106" decal on the door (pictured below). I was greeted by Christy and was told to sign in and grab a seat in the lab. Boy was I happy to be there. I looked around as if someone let me into heaven.
We began our lesson with creating a purse from gumpaste, not as easy as it sounds either. I wasn't the kid in preschool playing with play-doh making shapes and worms so I was a little out of my comfort zone. Now working with fondant is easy because I can create letters and 3D images, but never anything like a purse.
Our instructor made everything so simple and easy. She explained things in non-baker terms which made things so much more comfortable. Next we created the lipstick (bottom). This was so much more easier than the purse. I finished that one with no issues. Then it was time to do the rose (top)...no words for how that came out (LOL!)
Now it was time to start the cookies!! To the left are the naked cookies and the right are my decorated cookies. My personal fave is a tie between the martini glass and the shoe.

Needless to say, I had so much fun!! Learned a lot, asked a lot of questions and laughed even more. I am looking forward to taking more classes with Suite 106 Cupcakery and getting to know more about designing cupcake toppers and other fun things.
