Sugar Flower Classes - East Coast

I just returned from a fun and fabulous week in New Haven, CT, just outside New York City! The lovely and very talented Erica OBrien of Erica OBrien Cake Design just recently opened her new studio in Hamden and invited me to teach two sugar flower classes in her adorable new space!

Cute windows and the outside lights:

Erica shares the kitchen with her sister Jessica...who has an amazing business called The Soup Girl offering delicious homemade soups and light entrees. We were very spoiled to enjoy her food for lunch each day during class...thank you Jessica for sharing your kitchen space!! x

Here's a peek inside Erica's consultation area...she's still unpacking some of her special details for the room, but it's already adorable with her lovely furniture and that fabulous blue hutch:

Setting up for class:

Many thanks to Erica for the wonderful invitation and for hosting me, and for all of your help before, during and after the classes! Thanks to your lovely intern Kalan for all of her assistance as well! I'm very grateful to Jess for sharing your delicious food with all of was amazing!

And to my really fabulous students, and it was such a pleasure working with all of you! The flowers were gorgeous...and you were all so kind and very gracious. Thank you for sharing your time with me! I hope to be back for more classes soon...x
