Wish I could help more. I found these websites that may be useful. Maybe you can email them and ask if they can help or know someone who can? You may also want to make a new post and put "Attention Tampa Decorators" in the subject line.




Good luck!

Welcome to CakeCentral!

I don't know of any schools in Fla. although, I'm sure plenty of them exist there. Tonedna along with plenty of other CCers reside in Fla., maybe they could suggest classes somewhere. Most fill up fast, so I'd suggest doing it quickly.

ETA: I'm looking at your site now...I love your characters!

Hi, welcome to CC!! icon_lol.gif I have learned a lot with everyone in CC, plus I also go to the visual tutorials in internet. Just go to "you tube" and in their search engine put whatever you want to learn or know about and it will take you to links that has to do with that subject! icon_smile.gif if what you need is flowers, just put example: gumpaste flowers ......if it is figurine..just put gumpaste figurines or check Edna's tutorials in YOUTUBE she has wonderful tutorials in there and very well explained.You can also try and get in touch with her, because she is closer to Tampa.She is in Orlando, which is less than two hours away from Tampa by car.Her web site is "www.designmeacake.com " She might have the information that you need. By the way she gives classes in Orlando. Do you know spanish? Edna speaks spanish. I hope this helps, good luck!!! thumbs_up.gif

Bienvenue a Cake Central. Your blog is wonderful. I love your figurines. Everything also looks delicious! For anyone else who is interested; when you check out Val06's blog, go to some of the other links for amazing looking recipes. I have to try a paella I saw. Don't let the language intimidate you too much - even if you speak no French you will still appreciate the photos.

Bienvenue a Cake Central. I took a few years of French in college, but never got to use it, so I can only read a little.
I used to live near Tampa.
How long will you be there? There is a college course at this web address:

I vote for checking out Edna too. I think she might do Wilton classes in Orlando, not sure about that though. The Wilton classes are a good way to get your feet wet (get started), without having to pay a huge tuition fee. Also that's how Edna started. One look at her site and you'll be impressed!
