Have any of you other WMI's taught the Tall Cakes class yet? I have one scheduled for October 9th and was wondering if any of you have any advice.
Did you use dummies or actual cakes? Any problems witht he lessonplan, timing, etc? Any advise would be helpful.
I taught one this last weekend. I'll share what I did via PM in a little while, as I have something I have to do at work real quick.
Are you on the WMI message board? That'd be a great place to ask this question.
From a person who would attend, I think this would be better with real cake. Anyone can make a cake dummy stable...but a tall real cake...that is talent.
WMI message board? hmmm, am I missing something?
I have had several scheduled and have no interest in it. Good luck! I have four scheduled for October. Hope they make.

As far as real or fake, I used fake in class. The instructions have the WMI's bring a 14in, 10in and a 6in "cake" to demo on. Doing a real cake would really eat into the profit of the class plus then you have to figure out what to do with it after the class.
You can show how to pillar and dowel with the dummies and then walk around and help the students. I think being free to help where problems may be is more important than standing there and showing it all in real time.
