Christmas in November PART III

I definitely feel the Christmas Spirit after spending the week at the Jasper Park Lodge!  It was beautiful, festive, refreshing (and exhausting at the same time, if that's possible) and definitely inspiring.  Am feeling really grateful for this opportunity.

As promised in PART II of Christmas in November, here are some photos of the SWEETS from my sessions.

SnickerDoodle Cupcakes: vanilla cupcake baked with apple pie filling, topped with vanilla buttercream and a snickerdoodle cookie!

Coconut Macaroons: sweetened coconut baked with a little flour, condensed milk, whipping cream and sour cream...TOTALLY FAT FREE!

Chocolate cake Truffle Lollipops: crumbled up chocolate cake with a touch of cream cheese frosting, dipped in chocolate and coconut.  These were quite popular at the lodge, people were sneaking into my sessions just to grab one or two...or three!

Finally, my demos were on how to decorate your own
Personalized Mini Cakes & Cupcake Ornaments


Here I am with my assistant for the week, Valerie!  She was so much help and I can't believe I had an assistant...definitely need to find someone for back home!! (excuse my bad hair this morning, haha!)

The ever awesome Chefs who prepared all my cakes, icings and samples!  Man, I love having stuff ready to go!
Chef Martin
Chef sweet!

Finally, a couple more of my favourite moments of the experience.

Family photo with Santa :)...sorry for the's a picture of a picture!

Watching Bal teach Michael Smith to belly dance!  Funny!

The awesome friends we made!

Thanks to the Edmonton Journal and Liane Faulder, in particular, for recommending me for this wonderful event...and thanks to the fabulous folks at the JPL for an unforgettable experience!
