Jen Dontz comes to Canada!

And right here in the Ottawa Valley!!! Yes it is unheard of for a TLC celebrity to visit our neck of the woods. But she came at the request of Lorrie Gauthier

Jennifer is owner of Sugar Delights in Manistee, Michigan, USA. Jen is an accomplished sugar artist that has been featured in many magazines and competed on TLC's Ultimate Cake Off among other things. Jen is an ICES approved teacher.

You might ask why am I taking classes after so many years in the cake business? Well because it is FUN! It is great to meet other sugar artists and interact. It is also good for the brain to stay on top of new techniques.

Seeing as Jen was a US citizen and we were so close to Canada Day up here, I treated Jen to a Canadian Care Package. There was so much to choose from this time of year with store shelves filled to the brim with Red & White. Her is Jen sporting here new hat & showing off some of her gifts:

We learned about new sugar tools on the market and the techniques Jen uses to produce her gorgeous sugar flowers. Here is Jen hard at work:
Here are some of the sugar flowers I created in class.
And lastly (But certainly not least) The class of really great people!!!
THANKS JEN for coming to our little neck of the woods!!!
