Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2008
"THE MAGIC OF SUGAR" is the name of the workshop being presented by two real magic makers, Latin baker to the stars and culinary professor Miriam Gautreaux and actress, author Isabella Wall also known as the "Fairy Godmother of Quinceañeras", the Hispanic coming of age celebration of the 15th birthday.
"The Magic of Sugar" is also the name of 3 books written by Miriam Gautreaux whose International fame in the United States and Latin America is celebrated for her artistry and original recipes. "I am honored to be back in New York where I love to teach. The people here have always opened their doors for me to teach what I have learned all these years. I am grateful to know that I am welcomed every year", added Gautreaux.
Another sweet element is that Gautreaux and Wall are sisters, whose passion for fashion, sugar and magical celebration brought them together on a path to make people's dreams come true. If Miriam's expertise is to add the magical touch to sugar, Isabella brings the magic of GLAMOUR from HOLLYWOOD, where she lives and is a working actress in television shows such as ER, Days of Our Lives and Nip/Tuck among others. Isabella is also an author with weekly blogs on Mis Quince Mag.com and is about to publish her new book about Quinceañera traditions and planning. "Being 15 is a critical age in the transformation from little girl to young lady. Our girls go through hard times at that age, that is why they need to feel family support. The celebration of "los Quince" can strenghten the suport system during this period. But this is not your grandmothe's Quinceañera. In the 21st century the media and corporations such as Teen Magazine MTV, Univision, the movie QUINCEAÑERA, Target and others, have realized how important it is for Latinas to turn 15". Said Isabella.
The celebration of the Quinceañera is a tradition that was hidden in the Hispanic world and in danger of being lost among the Latin families in the United States. Isabella's innovative money saving ideas in fashion and party planning as well as more ways to include the family, along with Miriam's affordable sugar sculptures have brought them together to insure that no girl turning 15 goes without a princess celebration. "In today's econmy it's hard for parents to afford to make that princess dream come true for their little girl. But what they cannot afford is to miss out on the opportunity to celebrate this once in a lifetime event that the whole family will always remember. We have come up with simple ways to do it on a budget, because even though it's like a wedding without a groom, we most not forget that it is still a birthday party". Wall concluded.
Professor Miriam Gautreaux will teach some of her the techniques to her spectacular sugar sculptures from the conception of the polpular doe in the Dominican budding, with it's unique frosting designgs of hand made sugar and chocolate flowers, while Isabella will show some of the latest Quinceañera styles and money saving ideas.
