Oh and the class/party runs about 2 hours. The older kids--maybe an hour and a half.

The last 30 minutes is usually for presents and cake.

i have taught this exact age group at church, and we had FUN!! party.gif

Just remember that the younger ones especially will just want to pile as much frosting on their cake as they can, they may not have the focus to really decorate.

I copied some templates on a copier and taped them to the counter and put waxed paper over that with tape also. I let them practice drop stars and shells before starting on their cake.

I just had little cakes already iced for them, and they smoothed them in class. Then I just let them decorate and have fun!

i have been asked to teach classes as well. just beginner stuff nothing to advance. (mostly because im NOT that advance).
my question is (sorry to jump on your post!)-
can you teach wilton techniques even though they are not advertised as a wilton course.
my interpretation is a bit different.
just curious.
thanks!
and good luck with your class!!!

I'm not really qualified to answer this question, but are you talking about teaching a wilton class or just a party? If it is a wilton class, I don't believe you are supposed to teach anything but wilton, but I know my teacher was open to all suggestions. If it is a party I don't see why not! HTH!

I would think you will be ok as long as you are clear that you are not affiliated or employed by Wilton and are not advertising that this is a Wilton sponsored or backed class, but do give credit to them if you are using their teaching materials. They do make available on their website the class curriculum for teaching to children, so they obviously are not against people printing and using the material and I haven't seen anything that says "If you print and use this material then this is the only method or material you can use." I am using the Wilton class curriculum, but I am also using other methods & materials and I am giving credit where credit is due, so I am not worried.

I did this with the exact same age group. Like some of the others said, I provided 6" cakes for each kid. I iced each cake smooth and put it on a board. Then I made several colors, a couple bags of each color, with a coupler on each bag. I traced a couple of patterns of flowers and a heart on paper (you could also use cookie cutters) and let the girls use toothpicks to trace around the patterns, so they had a template to trace over. I showed them how to hold the bag, how to do a line, basic shells, etc, and just let them go to town. They had so much fun and it was pretty easy to set up, clean up, etc. They also loved it because they were able to take something home that was already completely decorated and it was so much more satisfying to complete something. 

Most of all, have fun with it!
