The only time I signed up to take a cookie decorating class (thru the local community college) it got cancelled! And now it looks like they aren't offering the same variety of non-credit courses as in the past. Just my luck!

Gemini your cookies look like you should be giving classes not taking them, but everyone learns something new!

I am SOOO with you, Silvercat! I signed up for friggin Wilton class, made me take LEVEL I! icon_mad.gif The instructor was horrible, no encouragement whatsoever, got pissed at ME for practicing other tips (even tho those same tips were in our practice sheets SHE gave us!! icon_eek.gif ), plus she couldn't ice a cake smooth to save her life! It was sooo a waste of my hard-earned cash! The other members of the class were like, "Why are you Level I" and I was like, "They MADE me take a Level I!!!"

I'll tell you, I will NOT sign of for another stinkin' Wilton class. And if someone in my neighboring town wanted to get together and do a class together, I am SO FOR IT!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Gemini! I think you should be teaching a class also....It is a nice way to earn a little extra $$.

I'm seriously thinking about it, but am dithering about the how's and where's. And I can't get my mind around the idea that anyone would pay me to teach them what little I know!

I started in my local Adult Ed. They were very low-key, small groups and no pressure-they were actually really fun. I was so nervous at first-I started to hot flash in front of everyone-it was embarrassing!

After the first of the year, I am thinking about doing cookie decorating parties...birthdays parties, holidays, etc...

Why was I convinced you're from New York? The whole yankeegal thing, I guess! My sister works in a rehab hospital here in Nebraska, and she's had Joba Chamberlin's dad as a patient (years ago). Joba would come in and sign autographs for everybody. I could've gotten you one!

Hi girls, If you can ever make it to ICES convention-there are alot of cookie gals there too! Let me give you some people to GOOGLE and get ito their books-there is boundless knowledge there.

I have taken a class with Autumn Carpenter (owner of Country Kitchen Sweet Art) andshe has an AWESOME book-if you google her and can go on her site she has tutorials and a GREAT cookie book that is HUGE!

Toba Garrett in New York is amazing I really learned alot of discipline working with her-she has a few cookie recipes too that are to die for.

The ALL time best is Susan Carberry-she owns the Cake Cottage-she told me she is working on a book now-but on Y U M M Y A R T S . c o m she has numerous tutorials on 3D cookies-I will attach a GREAT 3D cookie she taught me and she is at ICES every year teaching NEW 3D Cookies!

I'll tell my sister if she ever gets another opportunity to get Joba's signature, to get me one, too. I'll send it to you.

iamlis....I have all of Autumn Carpenter's cookie books and love them all! I met her briefly at the ICES last year when it was in Omaha, but I couldn't take any of her classes as I was helping a vendor and not a paid participant.
