You ladies are so lucky in the US. I'm in Canada & I was told $69.99 for Course 1. I hope to start soon. It's quite expensive since supplies are extra too. This sucks!!!!! icon_cry.gif

luvbaking....maybe you could just order the course books through Wilton first and see how you do....they have very detailed instructions...... I might try that before paying $70.00 for each course.

I took Course I and II which each cost me $25 each.... The last course I took through Michael's and I got it for half price. Cost me $12.50 for the 4 one night (2 hours each) classes. Supplies can be kind of pricey, but to me, it's been worth it icon_smile.gif

Not a bad idea at all especially since I've done some cakes on my own including 2 barbie stand up cakes so I do have a pretty good idea....The only problem is i don't know what the Course Books are. If you guys can tell me the names of the books I need maybe I can go from there.

Thanks for your help.

If you are talking about Wilton the are Just course I, course II, Course III. Some micheals do not sell them but some do. YOu might find them at hobby lobby, but your best bet would be ebay.

The booklets cost about $5.00 each at Hobby Lobby, so you can use that as a guide if you decide to go the eBay route.

No, Hobby lobby is a craft store. If you are looking for them on ebay just do a search for wilton. A lot of stuff will come up but that is probably the easiest way to find them.

Thanks a bunch Becky! Yes, you're right my best bet might be ebay since I'm in Canada & I don't think we have Hobby Lobby here.

I took my Wilton classes at Hobby Lobby, and it was $25 plus the price of the kit ($0 or $25). They gave us each a voucher for a % (can't remember how much) off any cake decorating items (not only Wilton) in the store for the duration of the class. I bought things the night of class more than once and stopped in other times when I was in town. For the second class the voucher was good for one time only and that was the first night of class. I had no extra cash that night so they said I ould use it the next time. That made NO sense. I let my instructor know that they were losing a LOT of business that way. I never did use my voucher. I bought everything I needed at another store closer to home. I could never figure out what they could have been thinking by making that change. If I take another class it won't be at HL. However, there IS a Michaels just 30 mi away now. Ü

I took the classes at Joann and they were 12.50 (with the coupon) and I bought the mid size tool kit and it was 25 dollars(with the coupon). There is a local cake decorating store and they have classes too, and they are much more, but they have everything you could imagine for classes.
