Poll: How many took cake decorating classes? - Page 2

post #16 of 32
I have taken the first two Wilton courses. There isn't a Course III in my area til fall. I have to say it did inspire me and pushed me to get the equipment.. Once I had spent so much on all that I felt I really had to practice more often! The classes were frustrating to me because of being too rigid. I'm glad they are over as I'm having more fun playing and doing what I want now.

I am going to be finishing Wilton class I this Sat. I LOVE IT! Not only for the instruction, but for meeting new people with a simular interest and getting their advice on problems they have run into.
I am signed up for class II. My classes are at AC MOORE and the first class(four Sat evenings)cost $15.00. Classes after that are $25.00 for each set of classes with a gift upon completion of the class

sorry to hear your class was so rigid. I do not take what I teach to serious at all. After all, they are there because it is fun and they want to be. So i teach what is there, and if they get off course or ask about something else, I am more them happy to help. I have to bee there to. so i want to enjoy my time also.

I have never taken the Wilton courses. I took three months of classes by an independent decorator and member of the San Diego Cake Club and ICES. She's been decorating for over 30 years. She's been requested to make cakes for political functions in D.C. over the last 14 years. I think I'm good to go with what she taught me. I was told by several of the members of SDCC who teach that I don't want to learn the Wilton way so I didn't.

After 10 years of cake decorating, all of which I have taught myself from books,internet etc. I decided to take the wilton class. I am on week 3 of class 1 and I am having a ball. I am brushing up on my techniques and learning new tips etc. I plan on taking all three classes. It is fun and I have meet alot of great people.

When I was little my neighbor taught me how to make the roses and other flowers, but I primarily learned through the Wilton classes that I took from the local Michaels stores. My teacher was great and I might even take the class again as a refresher and each instructor teaches new tricks and techniques. I would highly recomend it.

I havent had the chance to take any classes as of yet my busy schedule prevents it. If I ever get a chance to take a class I will. I know my local Michaels offers Wilton classes, Ill have to see if maybe I can find a class at the community college. I am enrolled for a non-baking program but maybe there is a culinary/ cake-decorating elective I can use to fill in some of my credits with.

I just graduated from the Wilton I class this past Saturday. I plan to take the II class, but I'll have to wait a month, because there aren't any Saturday classes available next month and I work second shift, so I can't do anything during the week after 2pm!!! (Booooo!!!)

I am in the middle of my Wilton II course and it's great! I am making my first baby shower cake tomorrow for someone at work. The only thing I am worried about is it tipping over on my ride to work! I am making the 3D Rubber Ducky so hopefully it will be fine icon_smile.gif

I have taken all three Wilton classes offered at Michaels. I am in the process of teaching myself how to do gumpaste and sculpt figures from fondant since I cannot find a class on those things here.

I took all three courses. I found them very valuable. I am a real visual learner. I had tried to learn flowers and stuff on my own and totally failed so I finally broke down and took the Wilton courses. I did it with a group of about 6 friends, and 2 of us made it all the way through the third class. It was a lot of fun. It was a night out everyweek with out the kids and I didn't have to cook or do dishes that night. I would recommend finding a friend who is interested too and taking the class together. icon_smile.gif SARAH

I never took any of the classes. I was taught to do the shaped pans by a firend and self taught the rest. I would like to take the classes, though. I really need some work on some of the flowers and the lace techniques. I think that if I had a friend to go with that would help alot. But now I will have to wait until I get back to the States again!! This is going to be a long 3 years!
Hoping to one day have a shop of my own!

I have finished Wilton Course I & II and will start on III next week. I learned a lot from them, especially when I didn't get teh instructions. The instructor was very helpful and worked with us one on one if need be. I have learned so much from this website though. I'm embarrassed icon_redface.gif to say I only thought you could decorate with one kind of icing until I got on this website. I believe I've read elsewhere on this website (and I agree) it is definitely advertising for Wilton.
