You can have your cake and eat it too!

by Linda Stone

Cake decorating is an art that careens past boundaries, where almost anything goes. Artisans of this craft can conjure scenes and settings that are sure to capture the hearts and imaginations of celebrants of a special occasion or others who simply enjoy viewing these imaginative confections. Decorators often spend many years of fun, excitement and satisfaction perfecting their creations. Beginner, professional, or hobbyist, time spent bedecking a beautiful cake can sweeten up anyone's day.

This weekend, the Fremont Frosters, California's oldest, continuously running club for cake-decorating enthusiasts, celebrates 40 years of sharing their love of cake decorating with demonstrations, raffles and more in Fremont and Newark.

Fremont's Mayor Wasserman proclaimed October 14 as Fremont Frosters Day at the October 3 city council meeting. He commended them for their community involvement with Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments (SAVE), Rubicon Children's Center, Children's Fairyland in Oakland, and the 1991 Central Park celebration day honoring veterans of Dessert Storm. "They represent a worthy service to our community and families," said the Mayor. The club donates baked goods to hospices and shelters.

Part of the California Cake Club (www.cacakeclub.org) also known as the 3C's, Fremont Frosters is a nonprofit organization working "to make people aware of cake decorating and the confectionery arts in California." The 3C's was formed in 1980 in Anaheim.

Fremont Frosters is open to anyone interested in sugar arts; to share interests and ideas with others. Formed in 1966, they meet on the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at Christ the King Church, 1301 Mowry Ave. in Fremont. Each meeting consists of a short business meeting and a demonstration. Dues are $20 per year.

Featured demonstrations include: How to make a Ring Cake, Whimsical Cake Techniques, 3D Cookies, Pastillage Flowers, Hat Cookies, and Painting with Luster Dust.

Registration is required. Call Cecily Dewing at (408) 492-1446 or email cecilydewing@sbcglobal.net.
