I have been baking quite a bit for the last few weeks. I was finally able to take the Wilton Basic Cake Decorating class last month and was hoping to continue taking the rest but there's schedule conflicts this month and we're unfortunately low on "hobby funds" at the moment. But it works out too since I want to get better at bread baking.
