Are you looking to set up a new version of Wilton classes? In person class , online class or just idea pages to be printed (textbook)?

Sorry for the late reply, I hadn't received a notification of a new message! We are looking for cake decorating lesson plans - the idea would be that at the end of the lesson you would have created a specific design (like a birthday cake).

Let me know if you're interested and we can discuss more!

Hello! This is a remote position, so you can do it where you have access to a computer :) We are looking to start out with a few simple lesson plans (they can be created in a Word Document, we have graphic designers that will edit them and make them look pretty) and add on as demand grows.

Let me know if you're interested!

Poin---- you do know that cake decorating is like penmanship. That is, the "teaching", "skills" and "tools" overlap a lot??? What you actually "write" (or in this case design) still builds on those basic skills. 

1. Bake cake... the same , regardless of design

2. Ice cake.....the same , regardless of design

3. Decorate. Different each time, but using the same basic skill set and tools. 

Sorry, I am just not sure of the knowledge base you are coming from....

I taught cake decorating for Wilton for 3 years at Michael's and also at Hobby Lobby craft stores. I have my own cake business now from my home for past 12 yrs. ;-)

Hi Johnson, Thanks for the insight! I have plenty of knowledge :)  Each lesson will incorporate basic cake baking and decorating tips and techniques, along with whichever specific technique will be used to create that design. Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!
