I start school for pastry and baking in July.
I just really want to get some one on one cake decorating help, especially with fondant.

any suggestions? I feel like fondant, somehow, isn't something that I can just teach myself. I need some insight.

Yes, you CAN teach yourself - I did because I'm no where near a culinary school. CC has been a great help. Get a receipe from this site for Marshmallow Fondant, buy some cheap ingredients and just play! Last year I wanted to make a McQueen cake for my grandson's birthday. Had never worked with fondant, so of course the cake was a disaster. Went to Costco for his favourite carrot cake, so the poor kid didn't know any better (was only 2 years old then). This year I decided I would give it another try, but I would learn how first, THEN make the cake. I get more logical the older I get. Fondant is the playdoh for adults. Fool around with crisco if it cracks, cornstarch or PS if it's too gummy and play with it. Experience can be a great teacher. Then if you have any problems, the people on this site are absolutely fantastic! Don't hesitate to ask...
