I'm thinking of taking the Wilton Course Classes on my own here at home with the help of a few on line mentors. The classes are held way too far away.
I just bought the four Course Books from ebay. I was looking at the supplies listed in each book and I noticed that it may be cheaper to buy a few of the kits but was wondering if I wasted my money on the books if they come in the kits. Do they?
Thanks for the help.
the books were not in the kit when I took mine last year. the instructor gave us a book. I took class at micheals. But I have seen the books for sale at hobby lobby, so I don't know if you have to buy yours when you take the class there.
Thanks for the speedy reply.
I just read the posts from the "Wilton Course II book question" thread and they are saying that the books are given out AT the class just like you said so if I choose to buy a kit the book will NOT be in it.
No the books are not included but what I wish I had done was buy the big decorators kit they have. It is like $90 but I used the coupon for 50%. It is the blue case. It had alot of the stuff from the kits in there also so I would have saved some money from the start. Now I have doubles of some stuff.
Thanks for the info.
I looked through the books and I think I'm only lacking three tips and I need to buy Course ll and the Fondant & Gum Paste Kit unless there are hidden things I need that are listed in the teaching.
I bought the huge kit in the blue "tackle box" using a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby when I took my course. It's always nice to have mutiples of the same tips so you don't have to change them out if you are using the same tip for different colors of icing. Look in the books that you bought, sometimes they list extra things that may help you that are not in the kit. I spent a BUNCH of money when I first started (and will probably spend more when I go home!) but it's TOTALLY worth it!
Ok thanks! I think later tonight I'll sit and go through the books better to know WHAT is needed.
