ISAC Grand Holiday Open House Followup

Hello!  Did you have a chance to attend the Grand Holiday Open House at ISAC this past weekend?  There was a great turn out of cake decorators and sugar artists for both Saturday and Sunday sessions. There was so much to see and do!  Here is a quick summary of all the activities for the day!  Thank you, Scott Ewing, for the wonderful photographs.

The day began with Rochell Ingram of “My Sweet Connection & Divine Baking Divas” in Studio B.  She showed everyone how to make the most adorable Snow Globe cookie.  These are so cute!!



And she showed you how to create her beautiful Cakesicles.  These things make such cute, bite-size gifts.  They look like a lot of work, but once Rochell demonstrated how to make them, it was so easy!!

Next, the group moved into the ISAC lunchroom for refreshments including the popular, freshly baked ISAC Gingerbread cookie.  Did you know this cookie has been served at every Holiday Open House for the past 16 years?  That is one very popular cookie!!

Next, there was a demonstration by Steven Stellingwerf showing his fast, quick and easy Salted Caramel Chocolate Truffles.  Yummy!!  My mouth is watering just writing about those things!!


Next up was Donald Joiner of Cake Boy Confections.  Donald demonstrated Royal Icing techniques that you can use on cookies or Gingerbread houses.  The houses make great gifts and I can’t wait to try my hand at doing these techniques at home.

Chef Nicholas rounded out the session by showing many different holiday ideas using the new Katy Sue Designs silicon molds; some of these molds were specifically designed by Nicholas Lodge.

All of the best products were on hand to purchase and take home so you could recreate these wonderful projects at home.  If you weren’t able to make it to one of the sessions, you can still purchase some of the supplies at the ISAC online store

Until next time, Stay Sweet and Keep Learning!
