Help!

Oh, also, I was just asked by the Relief Society presidency to do a bit of a class/demonstration on cake decorating at our Super Saturday activity in October. Since every time I've tried to do something like this in the past, I've felt like an unintelligible & poorly organized idiot, I thought I'd ask ya'll for your thoughts on what you might like to learn about cake decorating in a setting like this. I will only have about 20 minutes.... so yeah. I was thinking maybe just focusing on one thing, like what though? Fondant isn't nearly as intimidating as it looks, especially not if you use my fabulous marshmallow fondant, so maybe that??? I have no idea. Just learning how to use that set of piping bags & tips that you've had for 20 years & never used? Filling & crumb coating & final coating with buttercream? Give me some feedback here, please!

I'm totally scared of fondant. That'd be great to learn, cause it looks so good but I'm too scared of it.
And then if you had any time left the decorating with the bags!

I would maybe just do some simple decorating tips so people feel more at ease attempting their kids birthday cakes or something like that. Maybe print up some fun cake sites that they can look up and use etc. just simple stuff that most anyone could do but wouldn't normally know how. if that makes sense!! :0)

Celeste, My ward just asked if I'd do a little demo on cupcakes for our SuperSaturday....and then eat the cupcakes for "the" dessert. I was planning on having a little pow wow with you up at Susie's this Sunday. Let's brainstorm. Jen

When is this "event"? You have more talent than the average wonderful woman (wish you would share some with me). Thanks for sharing great stuff on your blog. I'm excited to keep in better touch.
