You Can Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

Recently we gave one of Craftsy's Free Classes a try. We expanded our ability to decorate cakes in Modern Buttercream with Joshua John Russell.

We decided to try and make our cake into a yummy mummy (as named by Livia). We made small circles and stacked them, used fondant to make the bandages, and added candy eyes.

We found these at Walgreens

I would love to show you a picture of our amazing cake...but, when I turned my back to grab my camera this happened...

What can I say? Someone else agreed it
was a yummy mummy

What is Craftsy?

Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. It also has a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a projects section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. With over two million members and counting, Craftsy has something for just about everyone, in categories ranging from quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more. 


Why should I take a class online?

Online education isn’t just for schools and universities anymore. Craftsy courses provide you the convenience of a world-class instructor in your home, whenever you want to learn. Online education, no matter what subject, is a great alternative to in-person classes for a number of reasons. 

With many online learning opportunities being on-demand, you are able to learn at your own pace, anytime. Online learning is a fantastic alternative to in-store craft classes for people with busy schedules or who have difficulty leaving the house. It also allows you to watch a troubling section over-and-over again, so you can see exactly how a technique is carried out, or refer back to your class for relevant concepts before beginning any new projects.

We had a lot of fun following along in the class Modern Buttercream with Joshua John Russell. I have never been a fan of online classes, but, the way these classes are done are amazing. The class was easy to follow along with and the forums were filled with helpful student led tips.

I would recommend watching the class fully prior to sitting down and giving it a go. 

If cake decorating isn't your thing there are all sorts of free classes offered from cooking to sewing. Once you enroll in the class it is yours for life to watch as many times as you would like and enrollment is as simple as linking your Facebook account.

Take a minute and check it out! Who knows, you might just find your next hobby.
