I live in Boise, Idaho. I have been mostly sef taught in cake decorating. I am a hobbyist. I would like to take a class for making gumpaste flowers. Do you know any close to this area? Do you know of any in Portland, Oregon. Have a chance to go there in June. I have 3 dvds but I am still struggling. I am a cake decorator who lives in the past. I only like buttercream cakes. But want to learn gumpaste flowers.
Sorry I can't help you. I'll give you a bump.
If you ever come to the Dallas, TX area, look me up and we'll see what we can do.
Did you attend classes at Michael's Store?
Is there a university, college or culinary school in your area? If they have culinary classes - especially pastry, they may offer gumpaste flower classes.
I took one a couple of years ago at The Restaurant School in Philly. They offer "community" classes to the public on weekends and evenings. It was fun.
Are you on Facebook?! If so, contact Kelly Lance. Tell her that Paul Caswell from Florida recommended you contact her. She is in Oregon, but I haven't looked up where she is in relation to Portland. She is a dynamite teacher and has done some really talented things.
