Hi all. I am new to all this cake stuff. Looking for people in Pennsylvania (I am in Central PA) that are into decorating cakes. Did any of you take any classes to help you along? If so, where did you go? I am near Selinsgrove/Lewisburg/Williamsport area. Any ideas, suggestions, tips...etc. would be helpful.

TIA

I'm down in Lancaster. I haven't taken classes...mostly just lessons learned here on CC and trial and error! LOL Nice to meet you!

Hi I am close to PA. I live where NY, NJ, and PA all come together. I took the Wilton classes and just do it for family and friends. Sometimes for the teachers at my kids' school.

Nice to meet all of you. After reading here, I am thinking I may wait and see how I do here at home w/ a bit of practice before I decide to take any courses.

I too took the Wilton classes (still taking them), and I love them.

I'm in York.

mis, you really should take the classes. They really teach you some good techniques, and aren't that expensive.

I'm taking mine at Michael's, and they are almost always 50% off ($10-$12.50) and then sometimes you can also get a $5 coupon as well. $10 for 4 weeks of classes is a steal!

When I took my classes, it was during the winter when they were having a special. If you bought the kit from them, you got the class for free.

I live in Mechanicsburg! My mother decorated cakes when I was a child - I did not appreciate it though and felt like it was forced labor. 20 years later after sitting in a desk at the same job for 5 years I started thinking about decorating and took the Wilton Classes at Michaels and started part-time right then and there. I've been doing it full-time since 2004 so I love it! I really like the Wilton teacher I had - she was great at the one-on-one time and showing you how to do whatever you might be doing wrong. You can take classes at AC Moore too. Good Luck with your caking!

Thanks Chrisl121070, that is a steal! I thought they were more money than that.

Nope, Michael's is always 40% or 50% off so it really knocks the price down. AC Moore's classes are more expensive for some reason. I LOVE the instructor at Michael's (in York) as well.

Aw to bad I live right down the road from A.C. Moore too. I will have to check into Michael's though. Thanks!
