I have the opportunity to teach some classes at a local kitchen store. It's a locally owned and run store that can stock what they wish (they don't hail to corporate or Wilton). After some bad experiences with some teachers that Wilton has sent him the owner is looking for someone to teach classes that are a little more updated then Wilton- and not necessarily a 4 week series or whatever.
So I'm thinking of doing 3 hour classes that are independent of taking other classes.
He also is wanting to carry things that will bring decorators in. I suggested Americolor already- I'd love not to have to drive an hour for those. What other things would you suggest? (He does carry an okay selection of Wilton stuff).
My class ideas:
Basics with Buttercream- cake hints, icing making, torting/filling, crumbcoating, frosting, borders and writing as well as basic cake design.
Basic Fondant- how to make MMF, how to color and cover a cake. Fondant decorations
Gumpaste basics- making gumpaste, bows, flowers
Kids class- only 90 minutes for kids ages 7-12 basics for kids
Cupcakes- filling, easy decorations
any other ideas? Suggestions for classes?
I would love to take all of those classes!! It sounds like a wonderful idea. Our Wilton person here cant seem to call me back to start the first class... Being a beginner I think a class about stacking/tiers would be good. Good luck!!
How about a session on stacking cakes!!
Thanks for the ideas!
ooooooooo stacking!! Oh, and dec'g cookies that look like the *amazing* ones here!
I would also recommend decorating cookies. I love all things in the CK product lines.
