I recently finished taking a few Wilton cake decorating courses at my local craft store. It was a great experience. I was part of a group of ladies taught by a fabulous cake decorator. We all took the class for various reasons. One was a bride looking to possibly make her own cake or cupcakes for her wedding in October. One was an elderly lady who had more time to devote to hobbies. But most of us wanted to improve on our cake decorating skills. The experience was a lot of fun and educational. I felt like I was being taught at a prestigious baking school. The instructor had four jobs. Her day job was an assistant, on weekend she was her church's secretary, plus she makes cakes on the side for whatever occasion and to keep her skills sharp she teaches for Wilton. It was a little sad to say goodbye to my classmates and teacher. Below is one of the cakes I made.
