And iced, decorated, and placed in cellophane bags to be sent home.

There were definitely smiles all around with tubs of smooshed-up cake on the table! Hope some of the cake-pops made it home that day!

Clients painted and glued clothespins, sorted by color, and attached them to a metal frame.

Thanks, Lilly!

The clients, aided by staff, followed the instructor-led step-by-step instructions to create individualized works of art.
