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?

I spotted these super bright tablecloths on The Merriment Blog and I was immediately smitten (and bit by the DIY bug.) I need more hours in the day, less work piled up, and maybe a calorie-burning brownie. Asking too much?

That incredible-looking cake is actually inspired by Stella McCartney’s spring collection; Apollina created this Stella Cake (a Citrus Cake with Lemon Curd Filling and Orange Lemon Icing) with the collection in mind.
