CAKE DECORATING: A select few Fayette area residents will soon learn cake decorating techniques from a professional.
The next public class sponsored by Normal Memorial Library will be taught by local cake decorator Kristy Clouse. The class is limited to the first 10 people who register.
Students will need to bring six to 12 cupcakes to the class. Anyone with decorator tip and bags can bring them along, too. Clouse will supply the frosting and various decorations.
The class is scheduled at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16, at the library. The cost is $10. To register, call the library or stop in at the circulation desk.
