WOW! I'm excited for you. I don't think I'm worthy of taking classes taught by Colette Peters.

Come on Agentcakebaker, you know better than that, you definitely are "worthy", your cakes are beautiful!

Nicholas Lodge is teaching gumpaste flowers here in my area on the 23rd, 24th, 25th & 26th, and they are pretty pricey, can't even imagine what Collette's classes would be. Should have said that I'm not attending, partly because of the cost, but mostly because I'm not ready for gumpaste flower making!

Becky, when you finish the class, you will be able to help all of us figure out how to do these cakes we are all so fascinated with! Have a great time!

Janice

ps you evidently have a gem of a husband!

Thanks all. My hubby is one in a million. He also feels it is an eduction opp. that I should not pass by. I also am a wilton instructor so the 40% off tuiton really helped. I dont think i would have gone if I had to pay full price.
