ASo far, the one I liked the most was the fancy jeweled cake by Mariba Sousa. I didn't care for modern piping. I was lookin for more instruction & tips on piping. It was really more about how to transfer a design & some of the basics I already knew.

I have signed up for nine of their classes.  So far I think 'Clean and Simple Cake Design' with Jessica Harris is my favorite.  She has some really good ideas on basics which I had not seen before.

I've signed up to several classes and I like them all, but The Ultimate Rose with Nicholas Lodge it's awesome. He is so detailed and patient when he teaches, and answers all the questions at the forum. I love him!!

I have to put my opinion in here now, I bought and watched Jessica Harris' class, and got it for $20, she has a coupon type deal on her blog that you can click on, and it was so worth every penny I spent.


She had so many good ideas, and things I never thought I would want to do, ie, MMF on a cake and the upside down cake method, but after watching her, I am going to try one this week.


So many good ideas, suggestions, and she even uses PVC pipe as a rolling pin. My 2' piece cost me less than $6, and I cleaned it thouroughly with alcohol and a green scrubbie. She is a very talented woman who knows her cake decorating.


I even printed out all her templates she provides and am in the process of covering them with contact paper for a longer lasting template.


This was such a wonderful class, all 10 lessons are a total of 3 hours long, but I started and stopped when I wanted, and even watched the 10 between 2 days.


Beautiful craftsmanship, and I never imagined a cake could look the way hers did.


Off to purchase another one.


If you buy this class, you WILL NOT be sorry!!!thumbs_up.gif

Thanks everyone for your replies.  Thanks sfandm for your detailed review of Jessica Harris' craftsy video and the $20 deal info.  I will be purchasing this one.

Never bought a bad one. All have been very informational as I am a newbie to decorating. Jessica Harris's has to be the tops though for priceless!
