I finished all 3 Wilton classes last winter, and I just got an e-mail from my instructor that they are FINALLY going to offer a gum paste class!! I am SO excited. I've been in a slump for awhile and am just dying to learn something new.

No one else around here seems to share my excitement, so I just had to share with you all.... lol!!

That's great! I've been trying to find a local class in gumpaste but I don't think the cake stores want the competition. They want you to buy their's!
Good luck with it!

Great news Melissa!! thumbs_up.gif
I know how you feel when no one around you gets excited over the cake thing! I feel they should jump up w/ excitement when I show them a new cake or tell them something I've just learned. Oh, well I guess that's why I call it my hobby!! They have theres & I have mine!! icon_smile.gif

It will be worth it! Wish I were going. It's not the tuition so much as the time off from work and the travel and lodging! Maybe next year for the Ladycakes DOS I will have to come up with something to teach so I can catch a break! Cowboy Hat maybe?

I don't think my class will be very expensive... I sure hope not anyway. It is just through my local Wilton instructor and/or her mother. I don't know if it's an 'official' class or just something they are putting together.

One day, if I am getting a lot of business and can justify it... I would like to go somewhere and take a few classes from somebody really professional!

..I don't know. Maybe Ladycakes or cali4dawn could give us some info. I think they had an informal DOS recently.

OK Ladycakes or cali4dawn ~ how do we go about getting some people together for a DOS?

Hey! I just realized I'm a Forum Addict! Not that I didn't know that I was addicted but now it's in print! thumbs_up.gif

The numbers are growing! Let's definitely work on this one! How many more people are interested? Who has a suggestion for a place or the room to do it at their place? After we get some people together maybe we can get a central location and go from there?

I would not mind doing one in the midwest at my house. I have enough room to have people in several different areas and I have a nice kitchen set up.
Of course I would have to run it by my husband first, but there are plenty of hotels to stay at in my area.

Good luck in your class! I'm jealous. The only place around me that offers any sort of classes is a Micheals craft store a few hours away. I think they just do the first few Wilton classes - none of which I have taken because their samples on display look horrid!! They have a Wilton I cake on display that looks a hundred years old and covered with dust and a fondant ribbon cake that my 6 year old could have done a better job of! icon_sad.gif
Have fun and tell us all about it, so I know what to do with my Wilton Gumpaste Kit that I bought to teach myself!!

Really..let's get to work on this! I can provide the space! I can have Tom empty out the showroom floor and that would hold at least 100 people!

...at this point we may want to start a new "thread" titled East Coast DOS or something and see what kind of response we get?!

Although I don't have the room, I would love to. Can I be of any help?

Absolutely Mchelle! I don't know about thecakemaker but I've never done this before!

I've never done anything like this but am very interested! Do you want to set up the "thread"? Let's see who's interested and start getting some ideas together.
