Just wanted to share my excitement! Come December, I will be a Wilton Method Instructor at my local Michael's store! It is such a wonderful opportunity for me and I am just so happy! Wheeeee! LOL! Thanks for letting me share! That being said, are there any WMI's out there in CakeCentral world that have any advice or tips for me??

Any would be appreciated!

that sounds so exciting!!! I have no advice as an instructor, but as someone who enjoys classes I would say...the more fun you have the more fun your class will have! My favorite instructor created a very relaxed environment and inspired us to all chat as we worked and I met some friends and always had a good time icon_smile.gif

adventuregal, I couldn't agree more! I loved my classes so much, I kept taking them over and over just to be able to decorate and chat and have fun! I think my instructor must have thought I was nuts for repeatedly coming back! Hahah!

Good for you thumbs_up.gif
As much as you enjoy, there's few else to say but keep that path... enthusiasm is contagious.

Check with the other WMIs on CC. I think there is special forum just for them. I bet they can give you alot of tips and advice.

I took the wilton class 1 twice the first in 1998 but the teacher then didn't give you hands on help if you need it. Well this year i tried it again with class 1 and as they say second time the charm. I had different teacher and she took you by the hand and helped you if she saw that you were having problems. She would take you by the hand and show you how to hold you hand to do the them wilton rose and from there on I took all 4 classes and fell in love with cake decorating.

My sister is a WMI, and she agrees to make a cake for the cashier that signs up the most students for her classes, each month. Good Luck!

Congrats Chrissypie. I'm starting as a WMI next month and am so excited too. Lots of paperwork to sort through but I can't wait to get started. Hope it goes really well for you. Feel free to PM me and we can compare newbie notes icon_smile.gif

I've heard of people that do that, or leave their first night cake with the cashier that signs up the most. Personally for me, I don't think it is fair to those that don't work the registers. The other employees help me and my students out just as much as the cashiers do. Thankful my store employees will look to see if we have something and dig through box after box to find it for my students.
