Glitter & Pearls

Hand-Painted Cakes + Creative Outlets

I’m featuring these jaw-dropping hand-painted cakes over on Glitter Weddings today, but the stunning creations, by the oh-so-talented, Maggie Austin, were too cool not to share here.  Each of the former ballerina’s designs looks like a watercolor work of art; almost too good to eat … almost.  Maggie even offers a two-day intensive flower workshop in D.C. (where I desperately need to be.)

Also, I’ve noticed that the more I blog, i.e., delve into this unbelievably creative world, the more cities I want to visit and re-visit, and the more creative classes I desperately want to take.  In the past week alone I’ve considered pottery, cake painting, wire-wrapping, and novel writing.

Does anyone else have this problem?  Do you take classes “just for fun”?  Do you have the time or do you make the time?
