Muppets & Monsters & Magic - OH My! Part 1

We are off to an amazing start here at Flour Confections! At the beginning of February we hosted 2 amazing days with the talented & adorable Lauren Kitchens of Fancy Cakes By Lauren. Lauren is a 2 time Gold medal winner at Food Network Challenge and she is best known for her performance in the FN Sesame Street Challenge. Although she didn't win that Challenge, she won the hearts of the public with her creative interpretation of Muppetizing the judges of Challenge!

Our first class with Lauren was Character Sculpting 101- where everyone was asked to create their own Muppet of a friend, loved one or themselves. We all had a blast learning her techniques on how she created these characters and bringing our own Muppets to life. Walking around the room, you couldn't help but smile when you saw all the different characters - from young to old.

Each and every Muppet was unique and fabulous! Here are a couple of my favourites from the class
And of course I had to make a Muppet of myself - complete with the flour logo!
Thank you Lauren & Kerri for a fabulous class - we all had an amazing time!
