There is nothing to be nervous about. The classes are very easy. You will be taught the basics. The classes are actually a lot of fun. You get to meet people who are interested in cake decorating just like you are. Just relax and enjoy the classes.

I have taken the classes too. I really enjoyed them, lots of fun. Don't be nervous about it, just relax and have fun. There is no pressure. Class #1 starts at the very basics. Making icing, baking and leveling cakes, filling cakes, using icing bags and tips, with and without couplers. You will learn to ice a cake smooth, you will practice using your different tips & pressure control. You will make drop flowers, rosettes,stars, shells, pom pom flowers, leaves, shaggy mums. You will also fill and ice cupcakes. You will learn the basics of writing & ribbon roses. Maybe decorate some cookies.

It will be fun and easy. I took mine at a College Night Course so my classes were 6 weeks and we learned more than at Michael's Craft Store.

You will meet lots of great people and have fun. The rest of the class are beginners too.

Have fun and let us know how the first night was. All the worry will have been for not, I'm sure. You'll do great I know it.

Have Fun!

Welcome to our world icon_smile.gif I too took the wilton courses and I was nervous about my 1st day. But, when i got in the class and everyone started saying "hello" and introducing themselves to one another, all of my tension went away!! I was so focused on what my instructor was saying and all the exciting stuff I was learning that I didnt realize the class was ending. YOU WILL DO GREAT!!!! For real, you will.

Have alot of fun and let us know how it went icon_smile.gif
