I think I'll be dragging along Saphie, who is also from my neck of the woods (WI) so add her to the list. My name is Lori and her name is Nancy.
Can't wait to see everyone, and we'll be working on something to demo or show in the meantime.
Thanks for organizing this!! I've learned so much from everyone here.

I can't wait to meet you all. Maybe this should become our new cake club with quarterly meetings.icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

UPDATED LIST FOR LOUISVILLE MEETING ON SEPTEMBER 06, 2006

..............................................................................................

Well, I am really trying to keep this current... Here is the list so far... please tell me if I missed someone... Some of you said "Yes" before I had a date of Saturday, September 6, 2008, but I assumed you would still be interested. Please tell me if I am in error with any of the names:


wgoat5 (Christi Goatly)
KieslerKakes (Janet Kiesler)
CakesByLJ (Laura Grater)
Lady_Phoenix
tippyad (Amanda Tipton)
potatocakes
cjstor (Cindy Storer)
Donnagardner (Donna Gardner)
debrab (Debra Boggs)
hallow3
bohnlo (Lori)
Saphie (Nancy)
indydebi (Debi Brim)
razzledazzle06
punkiin
allison/ac2steachk
mkolmar
2sdae
Laura102777
cerobs (charissa robs)

lutie (Mary Levee)

This is a total of 21 so far... we are from Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Did I miss any state? It is not that far from Illinois, Missouri, West Virginia... so some of you from those states, please come. Louisville has nice hotels and many are located in the east end, which is pretty close to Campbell's Gourmet Cottage.

As far as demonstrations go, we have roses on a stick, weaving ribbon in a basket weave butter cream icing, and a Royal Icing Demo.

Each one of us can bring or do something. Those who are new could make some of the recipes on the web site for others to taste... example: Michele Foster's Fondant with different flavorings or different flavors of cake balls.
Let us make sure we sign up for something so we do not overlap.

Who has a really great camera and can take great pictures? That would be a great thing to have pictures made so we could post them for everyone.

I will be happy to coordinate everything, as my children are grown and I do not have that responsibility anymore.

We will not have to worry about how much it will cost until we get our final count. There should be a cut-off date for signing up (say June 30 or July 31). If it gets too large, then we will have to find another meeting place, so do not let that become a distraction for anyone. We want as many that can come to attend.

For those who will be doing demonstrations, it would be really helpful to all if you could bring written instructions on how you are doing your particular talent... if the copy cost is too much, we can all purchase a copy from you for whatever it cost you to copy each sheet. That seems fair, do you not agree?

Let us all put on our creative capes and come with great ideas to share. I am looking forward to this meeting of the "Cake Society of Creative Characters". I hope you all like to laugh because that is what I do the best!

I have a suggestion. When the final count comes in, why don't you set up a PayPal account just for this and we can each pay our portion that way, so you will have all the money up front for the event. You mentioned the costs of making the copies of instruction sheets....maybe if the people doing demos would figure up what those costs would be they could all be added together and included in what we pay to attend that day.

I'm so excited to get to meet everyone! icon_smile.gif

You've got me on the list too....I'm Cindy House (Punkiin) from Lancaster, KY. I can't wait to meet everyone.

Potatocakes - No I don't have a business either....just bake for family, friends, church family, and word of mouth. Yes, I'm a regular at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. Actually I've started buying a lot online (countrykitchensa and globalsugarart). The only thing you can find at HL & Michaels is the Wilton products and I have all those at this point.

Maybe we could get some locals to meet in Lexington quarterly or something. That would be fun...I know there are several from Richmond and Berea.

lutie- Since I am brand new to CC and do not have anything to "demo" I volunteer to do the pictures (if no one else has already).
Photography/Scrapbooking are my other hobbies that I have been doing for years!
Thanks,
LeAnn

Great idea about the PayPal account... I do have one already, but I think to put everyone's mind at ease, I will open a "special caker account" just for this momentous occasion. That way, I can get Susan @ Campbell's Gourmet Cottage her monies when she needs to have them (or another location if we get tons of more cakers). I will put a scanned copy of the monies transfer in a private email to each and every one of you when the time comes. Does that sound safe to everyone? Please advise.

How about this idea? Each of us could bring a small "gift" that has to do with our business of baking and caking (example: a special decorating tip, mold, or transfer, etc.) that is wrapped. Then we could do a "Secret (Fondant) Santa" game and see what we all end up with at the end of the day. We can set the criteria, such as: It should not cost more than $10.00 and no less than $1.00 or something like that... it will give each of us a small momento from our first meeting in Louisville.

What do you all think?
post #134 of 252
