Great interview with Marina Sousa of Just Cake

And for those of you who don't recognize the name, you may recognize her from her Food Network Challenge appearances or her recent appearance on Oprah. She is the owner & artist behind Just Cake located in California - simply stunning work!

Classes at Custom Cakes Savannah Georgia

So if you are as addicted to the world of sugar as I am, then most likely you have made a pilgrimage or two to learn from some of the masters.

Last year I jumped on an airplane to Savannah's Custom Cakes to make such a pilgrimage to learn from the Maestro of Sugar Flowers - Ron Ben-Israel

Let me tell you the experience was nothing short of AMAZING! For those of you who don't know Minette Rushing, she is a fabulously talented cake artist located in the beautiful & historic city of Savannah, Georgia. Her staff are equally talented as well, two of which have recently competed in 3 Food Network Challenges!

This year I will be jumping back on another airplane to make the journey once more, this time to learn the art of Bling with Ron. Ron will be teaching 3 sessions this year, the first Bring on the Bling will take place February 26th, 27th & 28th. The second session Sugarpaste Flowers will be held on March 2nd, 3rd & 4th. The third session, a repeat of Bring on the Bling will be held on March 6th, 7th & 8th - this is the session I have registered for.

So if you have the time, the desire to learn from the best, and the love to travel, I encourage you to join me in my trek to Savannah! You won't be disappointed!
