I have done 3 Wilton courses and they wont have the gum paste class until sometime in Sept. I was wondering where else I can go to learn more on making different flowers, stacking cakes etc.... icon_biggrin.gif

Depends on where you live in Indiana. I know in Fort Wayne, County Kitchen Sweet Art has different kinds of classes you can take.

Is there a cake store in your area? You might want to try there too. Or a community college?

I am closer to Indianapolis. So far all I have been able to find is the Wilton classes at the Hobby Loby and Michaels.

IndyDebi might know better than I do. I had to stick with Hobby Lobby Wilton courses myself, because it would have taken an hour or more to get to Indy to take anything there.

Wish I could be of more help!

You could call Mrs. B's. It's located in Speedway. It's a specialty cake store. They might teaches classes there.

I've only been able to take the Wilton Course 1, and the instructor in my area is...not someone I care to take a class from again. I'm dying to learn more, but I'm having trouble finding someplace as well. I'm even will to do some free labor for a local cake decorator (dishes, mixing batter, etc...stuff I can't screw up!) if he or she will even just let me watch and ask a few questions while he or she decorates, but I'm not sure anyone would go for that, so I'm afraid to ask.

Any thoughts from those of you that do this as a business? Would you go for that?

This is her class schedule page. I didn't download it but if the class you want isn't on there, call her. She may have a list of "people who'd like to take a class on XXX when I get enough interested".

Oh nice! I didn't know she had classes or that they were on the weekends. icon_smile.gif This makes it much easier for me to try a class or two!
