I did not go to school. I did start baking with my mom when I was 4. I took Home Economics in Jr. High and high school for 6 years. I worked for 3 years with a Scandinavian baker, 3 years with a German baker and 2 days with a Belgian baker/ decorator.

I have taken all of the information I received and made it work for me. Whether you go to school to learn or apprentice with someone else, the extra knowledge never hurts.

I've been a lifelong cook and baker, but I also recently graduated from the Pastry Arts program at the French Culinary Institute in NYC.

I went to the Scottsdale Culinary Institute, a Le Cordon Bleu school. Did the full program (pastry and cooking). It was a lot of work (while I worked full time) but was so worth it - for the learning experience if nothing else...but $$$$$$!! Oh well, if I weren't in debt then I wouldn't know what to do with all my $$$ haha.

Bachelor of science in home economics from The Ohio State University. I Have taught HIgh school Culinary Arts and Nutrition for 29 years...and lots of kids have gotten the basics of cake decorating and creating masterpieces. Gee , the nutrition parts sounds weird when we are talking about cake.

I went to culinary school and have a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. I went to Sullivan (National Center for Hospitality Studies) - not well known outside the industry in consumer's minds, but highly regarded in the biz. Also $$$$.

I have heard of Sullivan...their representative used to come to my school and speak to my students, made me want to go back to school...my daughter is majoring in hospitality mgt/rest. managements at Ashland University....if she wasn't an athlete we may have sent her to Sullivan...haven't been contacted by them in years, I wonder if they are so big they don't have to recruit now.
