And now for an exciting announcement!

On April 11th there is going to be a VERY special guest in the iambaker community.


Brenda from Sugar High Inc. will be doing a LIVE Q&A for you!  I dont know if you have seen Brenda’s work but she is absolutely one of the most talented cake makers around.

From 7:00pm to 8:00pm CST on April 11th she will be answering questions live… sharing some of her techniques… showing us some of her beautiful creations.  Since fondant is not something you will typically see on my site, I am just thrilled that there is an opportunity to learn more about this fantastic art-form.  And who better to learn from?

The best part?  This is all available to you for FREE!  You get access to one of the most creative and brilliant artistic minds in cake baking simply because you are a member of the iambaker community.  Seriously, people pay big bucks for access to this type of information.  Big, big, big bucks.  But for you?  Free.

I will even be having a super special prize for some participants in the discussion!  Let me know if you think you can make it… I want to make sure I have enough prizes!

You will not want to miss this amazing event!!

MIni Brownie Bites

Oh, and did you want to make these little beauties?  Well, I slaved away for hours putting them together.  It was really quite complicated and intricate should only be attempted if you are a highly skilled baker.

Mini Brownie Bites from iambaker.net

Kidding.  I bought a box of brownie mix and opened a container of Cool Whip.  Feel free to judge me… they were delicious. 😉

Share with your friends!

  3. Fun news! I’d definitely attend if it weren’t at 2am my time. It’s just a little too late for me. 😉 And I’m not judging you. Mixes totally have their time and place. 🙂

  4. How long do you cook them for?
    Also – what are those cute candies you put on top?

  5. You did that with a brownie mix and cool whip!? Lawwwwd, I need yo’ talent!!

    I want to be there for the discussion! Count me in! I need to find a babysitter… maybe I’ll just hire a nanny! ;-P

  6. Wow… that sounds fabulous – what a wonderful thing to offer your readers!! Those brownie bites are adorable!!! Oh, and as for packaged mixes – well, my baking instructor in culinary school (who worked for Charlie Trotter) said (and I quote) there is nothing wrong with using boxed cake mixes – in fact sometimes they are superior for certain requirements since they provide consistent results.

    ‘Nuff said.
