Free Cake Decorating Mini Course with Craftsy

*Disclosure- this post contains affiliate links.


I’ve been decorating cakes for over 20 years now. I started when my oldest son turned one.  I made a cake in the shape of the number one. Since then, I’ve made many, many birthday cakes. I’ve even made two wedding cakes. I made one when my brother got married, and I made my daughters cake 5 years ago when she got married.

I haven’t made any decorated cakes for a couple of years. My teens have been asking for cakes with Reese cups on them. lol When I saw that Craftsy had free cake decorating mini courses, I sign up!

Here are the  2 free Craftsy mini-courses I’m going to take:

1. The Hand-Painted Cake
2. Modern Buttercream

I think it will be so much fun to hand paint a cake! I’m excited to get started with my classes.

8 Apron Patterns – Free E-book

I love wearing an apron.  I feel very homermaker-ish when I wear my apron. I actually have a few. I even made a Christmas apron a couple of years ago.

Here’s a picture of me in my favorite apron. I made this apron in January 2007.

I love a full sized apron. Apparently I’m very messy, because I always end up with whatever I’m making all over my clothes.

FaveCrafts is offering a free e-book with 8 apron patterns. I have already downloaded my copy. :)

The instructions look like they will be easy to follow, with lots of pictures. There are even tips for beginners!

So if  you want to make an apron for yourself or your daughter, this is a good e-book to start with. You can even make an apron from a pillow case. No need to go buy fabric, if you have a pillow case you can use.
