Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
It would be a great way (and great timing) to practice the wedding cake -- I could do it with dummies -- and it would be jolly good fun! I could enter in the beginner class, so I won't have to be too intimidated by the really good folks. It'd be a little pricey for the supplies, considering the "cake" won't really be for anything, but I think it would be a reasonable investment if I'm going to keep going with this hobby. I'm so timid about "wasting" money and time on something like this, but this post keeps coming to mind....

When you decorate the styrofoam dummy cakes, do you cover them with some sort of plastic to keep the icing out of the foam?

However, since the foam is plastic itself, I don't think there's any need to cover it with anything else. And buttercream probably wouldn't stick to something like Saran Wrap very well, anyway.
