Hi everyone!

I have the chance to go to a 5 day Nicholas Lodge wedding cake class ($700), OR to the Wilton 10 day Master Course ($1,100).

Which would you pick?

I have already taken the 4 Wilton courses at my local craft store, though I've not mastered many of the techniques. At all.

I really do need all-around help, which would make the Wilton classes ideal. BUT, I've been to a 2 day AMAZING Nick Lodge class, and I ADORE him, and I love that his is centered around wedding cakes.

Please help?

Thank you all SO much, for everything!

Delcy

I'd do Nicholas Lodge in a heartbeat over Wilton, just because I don't like Wilton's aesthetic as much as I like Lodge's. I think their stuff looks outdated and stodgy. I wouldn't want to learn their method extensively.

OMG....Nicholas lodge in a heartbeat!!! I honestly think you will learn soooooooo much more from him, than from Wilton. I have a few of his videos and his teaching style is amazing!! If I were you I would defintely take his class!! And it is cheaper than the Wilton!!

Without a doubt: Nick Lodge.

For that matter, ANY sugar artist that teaches classes.

For us, Wilton would be a last resort.

Thank you all.
Of course I"m going to go with Nick Lodge.
I guess I was thinking that I hadn't paid my dues yet or something, and that perhaps I didn't deserve 5 entire days with my idol.
I can't wait!
Again, thank you all!

Yaknow, I never, ever, thought I'd see the words "Wilton" and "Nicholas Lodge" in the same question.

Surely, hell has frozen over.

To me that is like being wealthy enough to purchase a Mercedes or a Kia. (no offense intended to anyone who drives a Kia) and trying to decide which one to choose if you have a really bad back and drive a lot of miles on a daily basis. I have take quite a few classes with Nick when I lived in Atlanta and he is one of the Mercedes. Enjoy you class, I know I and a lot of others on here will want to hear all about it and see pictures of what you learned.
