Tea Anyone?





What a busy and exciting month July has been. I just returned from
Florida where the ICES convention was held this year and I was invited
to demonstrate making sugarpaste teacups.


I talked with so many wonderful people and was excited to meet Kim Morrison, whose cake, featuring sugarpaste teacups, was the Grand Prize Winner in the National Wedding Cake Challenge in 2003! She was my first inspiration to make a teacup. Thank you Kim!



I believe the process for making these cup and saucer sets are fun and simple; and I encouraged every person who saw this demonstration at ICES to go home and make a set for themselves.
I was surprised and honored this morning when, Patrice, one of the creative owners of Serenatea, sent me a picture of her first teacup and saucer! What a beautiful work of art!

May the saint protect ye-
An' sorrow neglect ye,
An' bad luck to the one
That doesn't respect ye
t' all that belong to ye,
An long life t' yer honor-
That's the end of my song t' ye!
