I've always loved baking but it wasn't until last year that I really got into cake decorating. Last fall I finally got to take the Wilton courses. I have so much to learn but, I am loving it!!!!
How do you find time to bake w/3 little ones? I am just starting out also, I'm currently in the middle of the Wilton 2 course, although I'm not a stay at home mom I don't work in the summer, I'm not sure how I will bake when I go back to work. I have 2 boys ages 6 and 4 and I am challenged by finding time to bake and giving them the attention that they demand.
It's not always easy, that's for sure. I can usually get icing made and the baking done during the day with the girls but most of my decorating gets done at night after they're in bed. Can make for some late nights as I'm not very fast yet.
When I made my daughter's Bratz cake, we were back in CT that week and my father-in-law took the girls for a few hours (with the help of my brother-in-law - he wasn't up to the task alone
) Alone time to do cake decorating, now that's unheard of for me!!
With 3 little kids, alone time doesn't come along very often.
