Thank you or your time...
Anywhere in the Toronto, Canada region that teaches these courses?
Goldas Kitchen in Mississauga.
Are there any places in Ohio that offer these classes?
tried to do just that for you..but CC took it down :(
So you missed the OP, that was already having problems making contact. You deleted course information that was posted by people who clearly have no affiliation whatever with the businesses offering those courses--because you have no real reliable way to tell the difference.
And CakeCentral really did go back into the other recent thread that many of us contributed to as independent private persons, and you deleted the course information links that we all made to somebody who needed info about US schools before they spent their life savings on an overseas course??
And CakeCentral has really deleted ALL the recent posts abvout classes being offered this spring across the US?
And do you CakeCentral moderator team as a whole know that I get Cake Central spam about your paid courses even though I specifically set up my account to NOT receive such unsolicited emails?
Well I have to say that Cake Central has fallen to a new low. You moderators as a whole are wasting your time. Some of you moderators even presume to offer incorrect information about technical details of food safety regulations. Some of you moderators don't know common bakery terms, and you have deleted them too.
We the members operate on the principle of "better to light a candle than to curse the darkness". And Geoffrey Chaucer had his immortal character the Wife of Bath say "it is too niggardly when a person will not let another light his candle at the lantern".
And I have certainly filed an indelible copy of this post long before you get a chance to take it down. Because I stand by my word.
I am not going to delete your post because under your contempt, you make a few points that I want to explain.
We get it. We totally do. CC went from having no moderation over the past year to all of a sudden having 3 moderators, and we've been cracking down on stuff that even I, as a long time member, had no idea was actually not allowed on the CC forums.
Events are an excellent example - keep in mind when CC started almost 10 years ago the teaching circuit as we know it did not exist. The Events forum was for posting Events and back then, there were plenty of them and they were free. They were not $700 (or more) classes. Things have radically changed since then and exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry - what was once free has disappeared and has been replaced with an ever growing slew of classes and conventions that cost hundreds of dollars per attendee. What has not changed is Cake Central or it's policy against selling stuff.
The current forum and moderating guidelines are the same: If you are selling something, no matter how valuable it may be, you can't sell it here.
I CAN tell anyone that is reading this and getting very angry at us: we are working on it. I promise you, Eva, Jan and I die a little every time we have to delete stuff like this because I know on a personal level it's stuff I too want to know - and I hate keeping it from people. But the good news is... we ARE in process of figuring out how to adapt our outdated policy in this regard to adapt to the industry as it is now by embracing the teaching circuit and the educational opportunities that are out there. But it poses challenges behind the scenes that you'd never think about or realize until you are behind those scenes.
As for the slam against our intelligence, experience and the other nonsense, I chalk that up to you being you.
