Had a nice lunch with a friend at the Julienne in San Marino. It was such a nice and clear day today, bright sun-shiny day today, though the air is a little chilly, it is a good weather for a good mood. Felt like to go for a walk, so I went to Lacy Park. No roses today, gardeners were pruning the rose bushes. Came across an older couple holding a brown Siamese cat, what a beautiful cat! It's such a nice day today! It is a special day, a day I'll never forget... Now go back to the studio for my next painting project. I miss Lacy Park. I miss the empty rose garden. I miss a big warm hand to hold.

這是為畫家 Michael 陳小明老師做的巧克力草莓慕斯夾心的生日蛋糕. Michael 老師的畫室在加州 Arcadia 市, 我常誇他對小朋友和家長都超有耐心的. 他個人也真是一位非常有實力的畫家呢! 我自己很喜歡在他的畫室做畫, 因為我不喜歡讓老師操刀修改圖畫, 但是很喜歡 Michael 老師明確的指點, 然後自行修改, 總覺得這樣對我進步比較大. 如果朋友們自己或是有小朋友喜愛美術想學畫, 可以盡自打電話給 Michael (626)446-7822 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (626)446-7822 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

This is another chocolcate cake with strawberry mousse filling, and it is for my art teacher, Michael Chen, who's art institute is located in Arcadia, California. I always complement him on how patient he is with the students and parents. I enjoy painting at his studio as he does not "touch up" on my painting; rather, he comes around and critique on what he sees not satisfactory. This teaching method really works for me; it helps me see my blind spots, and it is usually the whole painting! Hahaha... If any of you were interested in learning to paint or draw, just give Michael a call at (626)446-7822 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (626)446-7822 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

我竟然去 Wilton 學蛋糕裝飾, 真是太不可置信了! 11/11-11/19, 兩週的學習非常的緊湊, 也學到了許多以前自己摸索不來的技巧. 之前做的杯子蛋糕的擠花其實慘不忍睹, 只是好友們都只會鼓勵不會批評呢! 還好我應該還算有自知之明吧! 希望以後的蛋糕會比較可看性. 課上完倒是有個好消息, 不過大部分的朋友們應該都知道了, 我根本就是藏不住心情的人, 人還在芝加哥的機場就忍不住 po 在臉書上了: 我的作品被學校拿去拍照了!! 好開心喔! 好像比考上大學時還興奮呢!

I have never dreamed about doing cake decorations. Not that I don't like amazingly gorgeous looking cakes, just that these cakes are usually not tasty. They seem like eye candies only, and I could not understand why take so much effort to produce something that will evantually, and usually very soon, be eaten. But, since I have been baking more lately, I do want my cakes to look as pretty as possible besides the good taste. Especially when there is an occasion, I secretely want it to be a center piece, hehehe... (My evil grin!) So I searched online, going to youtube, trying to learn from what people post about cake decorations. The result was very slim. I did not learn much at all from minutes of demonstrations online. So, I decided to attend a class, and that's when I learned about Wilton School. I remember seeing these classes in local Michael's craft stores, but I rather go to the original school to learn from the teacher's teachers. So I registered at the last minutes, and off I went.
