Cakes & Cocktails
Last week, Megan, Emily, and I participated in Cakes & Cocktails at our favorite cupcake bakery, Dreamcakes. They seriously have the best cupcakes I have ever eaten. My favorites from there are strawberry and caramel sea salt mocha. Agghhh, my mouth is watering. Anywho, about twice a month Dreamcakes has Cakes & Cocktails. We have been trying since October to get on the list. It's a pretty small place so there's only 10-12 seats available and after several months of trying we finally made the cut! It's the same concept as Sip n' Strokes. You bring a bottle of wine, or 2 they provide the cake and all the supplies and a professional baker teaches proper techniques for icing, piping, and decorating a cake. We had a ball and being able to eat the icing as we worked surely made it that much more fun. I learned several techniques I had never heard that will help me if I decide to become a more frequent baker, hah. Megan decorated hers with a house on it since they close on their first place next week! It was adorable. Emily and I didn't really have an occasion, so we stuck with girly polka dots and our initial. Our final product certainly wouldn't make the display case at Dreamcakes but it was a fun experience and a treat out with the girls. Have I mentioned how delicious the cake was? Perfect & Moist. I highly recommend anyone in the Birmingham area getting in a class! Thanks, Dreamcakes.
