All about A's!

Ann Pickard
April's meeting was all about A!
Some of Ann's creations!

It started with Annie telling us about the new WI knitting yarn and showing us some stripy socks she had made from it, and even better, there is a voucher for a free ball in the latest WI Life magazine!

Adam told us about the Museum's fund raising Buy a Block campaign. There is more information here.
Our final A was the absolutely amazing Ann Pickard!

Adding detail

Beautiful ruffles

Ann spent the evening demonstrating her easy to follow techniques in creating cute fondant characters to use in cake decoration. The pictures will show you far better than words here can! She shared tips, answered questions and very kindly donated a cake for a raffle prize and another to be auctioned for Secret World.

Ann Pickard

Ann Pickard cake
For our April meeting we are very lucky to be having the amazing Ann Pickard to demonstrate some sugar crafting and cake decorating in time for Easter. I don't know if we will see these very cute birds - but I'm sure it will be wonderful!
Don't forget to bring your purse, as Ann will have some goodies for you to purchase.
See you on Tuesday the 15th!
