I am currently a Senior at Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio, I have recently changed my focus more into cake decorating. It took about a year to admit that the path I was taking in school wasn't one that I could see myself doing for a living. I have been amateurishly carving and decorating cakes for a few years now and have taken the Wilton Classes and what not and I am just wondering what I should do next. Whats the process, Its hard to take this on full force right now because I am still in college but I think my art degree would definitely be an asset to the world of cake art.
Im currently taking a portfolio class and its all about getting your work out there, branding yourself, creating a portfolio. But its for Animation and Video students so I doubt its done the same way.
If anyone has any suggestions to help me in my path that would be absolutely amazing.
I'd be interested to know also. I'm currently a Junior at University here working on a teaching degree. It really stinks to get that far in and realize you're passionate about something else! At least I'll have summer vacations to "cake" full time!
