Hi all,

I know there was a post about cake camp a couple of days ago, but I cannot find it using the search engine on this site. Is it just me or is this site's search the worst??? errrrrrrr... Anyway,

I want to take a few classes at this year's Cake Camp in Las Vegas. many of the classes state a skill level. "Advanced", "Intermediate", "All", etc...

How do I know if I'm good enough to take the Australian stringwork class that says "Advanced". I'm afraid to pay for it ($110), go and feel like a total moron if this will be way over my head. But, then I was thinking, if I already knew how to do it at an "Advanced" level, why would I take the class?

Any insight you all could offer up would be greatly appreciated.

And if anyone has the link to the other Cake Camp post, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

Hi there - I just talked to Linda Bills, President of the California Cake Club and organizer of Cake Camp. Linda says that to take this class you should have some previous string work experience. In other words, if you have never done any string work this will probably be too advanced for you.

Hope that helps. And Have fun at camp - it is great experience.

SJ169, you need to get onto the website and read about the classes. It will take awhile, but you should be able to figure out what you would benefit from.

I know what I would benefit the most from (gumpaste), so those are the classes I am looking at first.

I have to fly so I need classes that don't have a long list of supplies that I would have to bring.

I need classes that the end result will be something I can get back home on the plane.

If a class is advanced, it is going to say so in the description. If you were looking at 5-6 or even 10-15 classes, people could make recommendations. There are just way too many and every instructor is excellent, so you need to sort through them yourself. It is an amazing opportunity and I would LOVE to find someone who would take me! icon_biggrin.gif
