I have to be in FL mid-August this year. I thought I could squeeze in a decorating class while I'm there.  An online search just leads me to Michaels classes and I would like a more advanced class.  I know that there are awesome decorators in Florida but I just can't seem to find any classes offered.  If anyone can point me to a sugar flower class or a 3D cake structure or lambeth style piping class etc., or any advanced cake decor class, I would greatly appreciate it.

One more thing....being armed with a list of cake supply places in Orlando would be the icing on the cake (pun intended) icon_biggrin.gif

 

Thank you in advance.

just off the top of my head i'm thinking of ewald notter's school

 

he's more into all the other pastry fields

 

esp chocolate and sugar work--big bucks but what an opportunity

 

and of course sweet-hearted tonedna (of cc)

 

talented and generously sharing decorator of bake-me-a-cake, orlando's premium bakery

 

don't know if they have classes

 

but tonedna has some of the coolest you tubes & tutorials around

 

anyhow--have a blast!!!

 

we're going to disneyland!!!  icon_biggrin.gif

Love Disneyland!  Kids want to try Disneyworld this time. DD is big into Harry Potter, so you know we'll be hitting that first!

 

Yes I checked Edna's website, but saw only Michael's classes.  I own several of her dvds and would LOVE to do one of her classes - if not to learn, just to be in her presence icon_smile.gif, she seems like such a sweet, sweet person!  

 

I have not heard of Ewald Notters school, will check it out.  Thank you K8memphis for the reply and hope you have fun in D-land!

Notter brings in amazing cake artists for "community interest" courses of 2-4 days.  Do contact them to see if there are classes while you are there.  Also, checkout D&G Occasions for supplies.

I was in Orlando a couple years ago.  No sure if Disney has Harry Potter, but Universal Studios did, a lot of rides and theme stuff, it was great fun!  I went to D&G also, it's a huge store, but the employees were pretty rude to me so my experience wasn't so great.  Still wish I was going back though!

oh oh oh  'd world' versus 'd land'

 

never can keep that straight  icon_biggrin.gif

As a former Orlando resident, I would recommend Mercedes at Bake Me A Cake, for the type of classes you are looking for.

 

Also, as a former grad from Notter School.... There is a thread I started a while ago detailing my hesitations before joining the school... you can get a better idea of what happened there, if interested. I don't know enough of the details to discuss, and there are a few lawsuits currently going on, so I won't speculate here.

Ooooooohhhhhh, bummer!  I hadn't heard about the closing.  What a loss - in many ways.

If you go to D & G Occasions website there is a link to classes.

Also, look at Winter Park Community Center - there are pastry classes there as well.
