A few months ago I was lucky enough to go to a friend, Ashlee's cake decorating class at Orson Gygi. She makes the most amazing cakes and I was super excited to go. She has a blog, I'm Topsy Turvy, that is about all things creative from her cakes to crocheting to home DIY projects. Her cakes are truly amazing and if you don't believe me, just follow her on Instagram.
The class I attended covered some basics in cake decorating with butter cream frosting.

Disclosure: I did get to attend one of her cake decorating classes, but I have not been compensated in any way. I'm just really happy for Ashlee to be teaching classes and wanted to spread the word. All opinions, pictures and cake anxiety attacks are my own.
