Hello fellow CC members...after only a few short months I am totally hooked on this site and since I was laid off from work 2 weeks ago I have been giving some serious thought to making cake decorating a full time thing.
I live in Toronto Ont. Canada and was wondering if any local professionals could recommend a good school.
I recently enrolled in the Wilton beginners classes at my local Micheal's and my instructor said I was a natural (I almost fell off my chair).
I know George Brown has a great program... but they have a long waiting list and I really dont want to wait. Tuition is high and would not cover tools or materials.
Another school I heard of was McCall's, there courses have a short wait time and are moderately priced. Has anyone here ever taken a course at McCall's? If so how was it? Tools are extra but they supply everything else so I am told.
The other school I was told about was Bonnie Gordon School. Although she is not accredited like McCall's or George Brown she does offer a 4 week Master Confectionery Arts Certificate Program that is intense and covers everything from a-z. Course fee's include all materials and tools (with one or two exceptions on tools).
Or is there a school I have yet to hear about? If anyone out there can recommend a program (preferably accredited) or has taken a course at any of the schools mentioned above; can you let me know what you thought of it?
Thanks for reading and looking forward to your input
McCall's School of Cake Decoration is Great!! They have quite a variety of courses. It is located at Bloor St. W., & Kipling. The instructors are terrific.
