I have been decorating on my own for about a year and a half but have only taken the first Wilton class. I have the opportunity to take class 2 in June but am wondering if it would be beneficial since I have gotten quite a bit of experience on my own. I have my pictures on a website I created. If anyone who knows about these classes could take a look and see if you think the rest of the classes would be beneficial for me I would appreciate your opinions. You can get to my gallery at www.pieceofcakeshop.com Thanks for your help!!!! I get such wonderful inspiration from the CC family!!

The other wilton classes teach you about royal icing and the 3rd class is fondant. I took all the classes. I enjoyed class 2 because they tought a bunch of flowers out of royal. But on the other hand you can definitely teach yourself those things by reading on this site or watching videos. The 3rd class, fondant, not worth the time. Looks like you know everything that they teach in that one...it was boring for me.

Wilton classes in my opinion are good to learn things from. Definately keep YOUR style, but NO ONE is ever so good at cakes that they couldn't learn something new, that might benefit you in the future. If you feel you didn't "Vibe" with your course 1 teacher, switch to a different location. We should always be open to learn, from anyone! Good luck deciding! WHo knows you may make some major architectural or strategical changes in your method!

I'm in the same boat as you but I don't think my work is as good. I think the best part is looking forward to being able to decorate without distractions!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for your opinions! I absolutely feel like i still have lots to learn, just wasn't sure if those were the best classes for me! I think I will take the rest of them, even if I learn one thing that I can apply to my work it's worth it right! THanks again!
