Hey all! I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to cake decorating and everything I have done has been self-taught.
At the local high school, they are offering a cake decorating class for 8 weeks for $45 plus supplies.
Has anyone done something similar to this? Are classes like this credible and worth it? I don't want to be disappointed.
I would go for it. For $45 you are bound to learn something you can use...that's a bargain. 8 weeks...it sounds like they intend to teach several different things...even if it's basic things...you are going to learn some valuable tips and such, as well as some techniques.
wow! $45 for 8 weeks sounds really valuable. How many days a week? Do you know who it's taught by? You could ask those person's credentials...these are things I would be interested in knowing. other than that I would do it if I knew the program!
Awww - this is where I took my ONE and ONLY class .. But it was 30 yrs ago!!! (O MY!) and I loved it! Its what got me HOOKED in the first place! I wouldnt trade my memory for nothing! I learned all the basic uses of the tips etc. I say go for it!! Even if you come away only learning a few things - its a few things more than you know now Good Luck and let us know how you like it!
Thanks for the replies and words of encouragement!!
It is once a week for 2 hours. I feel like they wouldn't offer it if the person wasn't qualified, right? I'm hoping that it's a Wilton class!
Regardless, you are all probably right- they're bound to teach me something useful! Thanks again!
2 hrs a week! Wow, that's gonna cost you less than $3 per hr! That's a bargain for sure. And, I hope they teach you other things than the "Wilton" way. Wilton is fine, but it's not the only. For instance, I can make a quick, beautiful rose on a stick, but give me a flower nail and have me do it the "Wilton" way...it takes me forever. Sign up and have FUN!
Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents. I took a cake decorating class through my local adult evening school. The classes were held in the high school. It ended up being Wilton parts 1 and 2. I learned a lot but more importantly, it gave me the drive and desire to try lots of other techniques, too.
