Online Cake Decorating Class

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi all!
While I have been a fan of this site for some time, I guess I never signed up to be a member until today. Several weeks and maybe a month ago, I saw someone post about an online cake class you could take it was populated with videos and class projects and I believe was $30 annually to have access to the website. I would like to join one, but not sure if any of you have experience or exposure to online classes and think it would be beneficial or not. Let me know your thoughts.

It sounds like MyCakeSchool.com . I don't know much about it. Have gone to the site a couple of times but w'out membership, not much info. Maybe some other cc'ers have joined and can tell about it.

I just joined cakeschool.com after being tempted by it for months. It was $30 for 1 year Ive just finished watching a video tutorial, it was impressive. Very very impressed with the video tutorial I watched. She explained everything in details and why she does it. I'm still a noob to the site but so far I am happy I signed up.

I am going on my second year of membership with mycakeschool.com. I love the site and the videos are very informative. They respond very quickly to inquiries and monitor their forums regularly. I don't have the time to practice the techniques but I know I will be able to go back to it when I am ready.

I have no regrets at all icon_smile.gif

Just an update to the mycakeschool.com comment I posted a little while ago. I've just watched a couple more videos and read some comments. I definitely recommend it. She posts lessons for beginners and advance, but she does her lessons so well pretty much anyone can follow along.
I've just been learning how to make a Topsy turvy cake (which i have due this weekend and have been nervous about). And I feel like i could just take my laptop in the kitchen and watch the video as I make the cake and make it well!

I highly recommend the site

I am also on my second year of membership and Melissa is a good teacher...And I think $30. a year is very cheap. Can't go wrong...Take one class, only one, and you will pay more than $30.What I like is you can watch the tutorials whenever you want. She also gives you the tricks of the trade.You can learn from basic to more elaborate and anybody can learn.
Good job Melissa

Bob,
I, too, joined MyCakeSchool a month or so ago and I love it! It is SO worth $30 a year. Melissa makes you feel like everything is so easy! It is well worth your time and money.

mycakeschool.com is great.  She does alot of buttercream which I like.  She tries to use things you might have without buying something everytime you make something.  She also is not hung up on the idea that every thing you use has to be edible.  She just did a caste cake that was great.  I love the site. $30 a year is a steal.
