icon_surprised.gif OMG I am really laughing out loud.... OF COURSE!!!!!! icon_cool.gif I am bringing a Chambord cake roll. Its a new recipe I came up with, derived from a recipe on the Godiva chocolate website.

Its a chocolate sponge roll, filled with a white chocolate mousse made with chambord liquer, covered with a dark chocolate chambord flavored ganache. YUM icon_lol.gif

Oh wow, that sounds awesome. If you bring something with booze, why don't you just bring the Chambord and a box of ring dings? icon_lol.gif

I second the chambord/ring dings suggestion!

I'm so glad someone started this thread. My name is Penny and I am new to New Jersey (Howell, just east of Jackson and Six Flags). I'm a stay at home mom to 3 girls (5, 4 and 2 1/2). 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!!!!

Hi Penny,

My name is Tricia and I live in Jackson and have three boys (7, 3 and 10 mo) how nice to see someone so close! I have been decorating for a while but not much more than character cakes. I am trying to move into fondant and sugarpaste but I do this more as a hobby than a living. I have 22 nieces on my DH side so I try and do a cake in lieu of a gift!

Hi Ginny. This is Kim from West Orange. I met you yesterday at Sweet n' Fancy. What a great place and you are a wealth of knowledge. icon_smile.gif

I took Wilton cake decorating classes last year at AC Moore and have been hooked ever since. I began my own business and have a website: www.kimmyskakes.com.

Anyone else from the Essex County area???

Hey girls, is Lower Bucks county/NE Philly close enough? We're neighbors, huh! icon_biggrin.gif I noticed you all talking about some cake classes and such...I'm dying to take an advanced cake course, I really really wanna be like the pros (like Colette, etc) and there doesn't seem to be very much for decorators in this area.

Any cake shows around? I went to the one in York, PA last year and probably will this year...but it would be fun to attend a larger one.

And yes I get my DH at Walmart too....and my sugar and Crisco and other stuff at Sam's as well.

im also from jersey...southern jersey in the sticks of tabernacle. i also went to ACC and have a pastry and baking certificate, this is what i love and i get to do it everyday! and surprisingly enough, in 'pastry' school they dont teach you much about decorating cakes! i had to learn it on my own. im 21, and probably one of the youngest on this site! icon_biggrin.gif

Another born and bred Jersey girl here. I live in Maple Shade, NJ. I have been decorating for awhile now but still have alot to learn. I have 3 kids 29, 27, and 9. I also have 3 grandchildren 6 , 5, & 4 1/2. They do keep me busy and love me to make cakes and brownies. 3 of them are being cristened tomorrow so I had to make 2 cross cakes and 2 dozen chocolate cupcakes along with the brownies and rice krispie treats. They do get underfoot while I bake but they all do make life interesting.

Oooh, I definitely want to go to the show in AC also. We should get a bunch of people together and meet there!

Yeah the show looks awesome! We have a pretty hairy schedule around here so not sure if I can get away (I also have three little guys, ages 6, 4, and 15 mos), but I did look up the site and emailed for more information about the wedding cake challenge as well. I think it would be sooo exciting! I would love the opportunity to really have to think up a cool cake design... I mostly end up with kids cake orders although I have two weddings in September for a change. But I'd love to get some cake show experience. I won a trophy at the show in York, PA last year, but I was bummed because I was the only one in my category, so I don't know how I did in comparison to others with my same skill level. icon_confused.gif

I'm definately going to keep my eye on that show and see how things work out...

Hey congrats Kitagrl on your trophy! That's a nice ego boost no matter how many people were in the competition.
