On the first day of our vacation to visit Amy’s family, take a look at the shoe that I made with my brother and his wife, affectionately known in my head as the Diaz family shoe cake. Amy had the day off and my sister-in-law, Ginni, came by with my brother to help me make the cake. I was going to try to do it all on my own, but Ginni convinced me that she’ll do anything to help. She’s so awesome. And I’m so lucky. She was decorating cakes when I was still very young, so I knew she’d help a lot.
I was surprised that my brother was also interested and learned to roll fondant and decorate. They kept telling me that they were having fun and getting priceless training as I talked and demonstrated all the steps and answered questions about making a sculpted cake. They’re both foodies and have seen some cake shows. That day it was all demo and practice.
I enjoyed having them both there. And then when I delivered the cake to the bowling alley “300” in San Jose and a bunch of kids, families, and staff were excited about the cake, I was even more proud of what the three Diaz’s created. Thanks for all your help, my brother and sister!
