Friendly Plastic and Cake

You might think that friendly plastic and cake do not go together ... well, I went to a friendly plastic yesterday at the CraftBarn. Our wonderful teacher was Liz Welch - such a talented and so inspiring lady ... it was definitely a revelation! I wanted to play with friendly plastic for a long time but never got around doing it. I had no idea how versatile and non-wasty friendly plastic is. We had lots of time to learn and to play during the workshop
My favourite technique was ouzing that is incorporating different materials (blings, pearls, ribbon, lace, ..., the possibilities are endless)  into the friendly plastic. I love the effects
 
Now, what has this got to do with cakes. well, a very friendly lady brought some cupcakes to the workshop, you know for topping up our energy levels (lol). The last cupcakes I made were for work last Thursday: Strawberry cheesecake with a little hint of Easter ... and I realised
 that chicks can also be green (lol) - Happy Easter, Petra.

You know, I was convinced you were in the States!! Just goes to show how wrong we can be. Liz W is brilliant, isn't she? I'm not an FP fan but I've seen Liz's work and a few demos and think it's absolutely fantastic, so lucky you! Most people like the extrusion best and it is pretty fab. Great pieces there.
