I haven't but would love to one day. Perhaps when my kids are little bit older.
Since baking is so scientific, it would be nice to know why I have to use certain items and what not. My Wilton teacher was an actual pasty chef, so she did give up tips and advice which I found to be very helpful. Especially regarding technique and proper substitutions.

I think it would be great for you. If time and finances permit, why not?
I say go for it, if you can thumbs_up.gif

I haven't gone to pastry school, but I too would like to when my kids are older, and maybe i'm a little more financially stable. I'm sure there's alot you can learn.. and not just about decorating cakes. I honestly would like to go to pastry school just as Kibosh said, to learn the science behind it.. that way I can make up my own recipes. Most of what I used now is borrowed, passed down, or found on the internet..

I went to pastry school spent alot of money and if I had to do it again I would have went to the local community or an arts school that offered it. I did learn lots of stuff that I never knew about baking and I've had the pleasure of working in different environments and now own my business. So decide what you want from going to school then do your research on different school if that's your choice.
Good luck

I went to pastry arts school. It was a wonderful experience. Besides baking science, you also make professional contacts that will benefit you for a lifetime.
