Check into the Wilton School in Chicago. I took a 2 day class there and loved it. Met people from all over the US and one lady from Puerto Rico. They arent as pricy as some of the specialized classes that you can get elsewhere too. If you arent interested in that Nicholas Lodge has a school in Atlanta where he offers classes.

I looked at Wiltons classes and wasnt sure about it because the one I was interested in was for 2 weeks. Which class did you take?

Its been a while but I took one on roses and one of piping. I was there for 2 days with my sister. The instructor was great and the classroom was set up to where everyone had their own mixer and nice size work station. But I liked it most of all for the price. If you can swing the trip to Chicago just take all the courses you can fit into the time schedule you have. They have it worked out to where you might have one from 8-12 and another from 1-4.

I go to the Notter School of Pastry Art, and they offer professional classes, though I don't know if they are a week or two weeks. May not be what you're looking for, but it's worth a look at their website. icon_wink.gif Otherwise, I know a lady in Ocala who offers classes and may be able to do what you're looking for. Her name is Josie and she can be reached at [email protected] (I hope we're allowed to post email addresses, not sure.)

Sweetwise in Nashville, TN offers classes and private lessons. Might be a closer alternative...though the Wilton School in IL is wonderful too.

Their website is: www.sweetwise.com

We also happen to be hosting Kaysie Lackie (2 time FN winner and appeared in and on the cover of the Inked issue of Cake Central magazine) in March. One class filled up in about 24 hours, so we opened another session. Announcing it by email today, but there are already only 11 spots left in the second session. We plan on having many more of these type celebrity classes this year,and mostly announce them by our email list. This class is her "Balance Cake" class, so there is sculpting, gumpaste, painting, and mega-structure. Its a 3 day class with most supplies included.
