ASo I'm getting a deal for buying any 1 Craftsy class for $14.99 and I can't decide if I should get Modern Piping by Joshua or Advanced Fondant Techniques by Marina Sousa. I feel both will be a good help to me....any advice please?

I love the craftsy classes.  I bought both.  Living in a country town it is so wonderful to have access to good teaching.

AWhich of the two would you recommend?

I have both and they are both brilliant. I think it depends on you and what you want learn, the modern piping has transferring stenciled designs onto a cake and then its pretty much all royal icing bar a few flowers and gum paste things, just painting the piped icing and planning the design (there is a lot of detail, i dont mean to make it sound like theres not much content because there is). The advanced fondant is all fondant like inlays and embossing etc (again more in it than I make it sound like). Both are great just different subjects.

But do you realise, when you scroll a-l-l the way to the bottom of the Craftsy page that they've got FREE mini classes? Go check them out!

AYes arlenej :) I got the buttercream and hand painted cakes classes for free!
