It's not "Just Cake" with Marina Sousa

What an amazing 3 days with Marina Sousa of Just Cake! I'm sure all the students will agree, Marina showed us how it's not "just cake" - it's ART!

Our 2nd class was 2 days of sweet fun! Teaching us about structure, students created a "toppling tower of treats"!

mmmm doesn't that look yummy?? remember it's cake!

Again no 2 cakes were alike as the students were encouraged to let their creativity flow. Some of my favourite "sweets" were the cannoli, licorice All Sorts and Nanaimo bars!

As always, students were treated to wonderful lunches and our signature cookies were on hand - but they never lasted long!!

And if that wasn't enough - we were all treated to a special screening of the first episode of LCS (aka Last Cake Standing)!!! Our interactive classroom has many perks - including a DVD player. Marina brought us a copy of the first episode for our viewing pleasure as it's not yet airing here on Food Network Canada. We all were able to watch the drama unfold - it was awesome!

Here Nina works away while Marina is on the "big screen"

All of the creations coming together - so fun!

A "sweet" line up!

Thank you Marina for joining us at Flour Confections for your Canadian teaching debut!

And the fun isn't over yet - our next celebrity guest class will be here before you know it - the talented Toba Garrett will be joining us at the end of May!
