Pretty much all the photos I took of New York were on the High Line, but there was an experience that I enjoyed so much that needs to be shared! On the second day of our trip, we took a subway to Hoboken in New Jersey and went to a cake decorating class run by the one and only Carlo's Bakery from Cake Boss. It was a Memorial Day theme, and we were shown how to put the fondant through the pasta roller (which was awesome) as well as cut stars and pipe icing. The decoration was up to us, and I ended up covering mine in stars and stripes, whilst Jane did a more 'retro' circular design.

More Views from the High Line

Having this for a mother does mean that on any trips we take, a great deal of time will be spent taking photographs in beautiful places. On our recent trip to New York, Jane and I spent a lot of time on the High Line, definitely one of my favourite places in Manhattan. The views are incredible, every direction you look there is something new to see. The architecture of the surrounding buildings is breathtaking, and seeing Manhattan from a slightly different point of view, in an environment that's more relaxed and slower-paced is an unforgettable experience, so different to anything else you find in the city that never sleeps.
