Did you go to school for that? - Page 2

post #16 of 28
If someone sees a cake I made and asks did I go to school for that? I would say yes, I did go to school to learn how to spell Happy Birthday. icon_biggrin.gif

How interesting! What do you teach? ... I didn't go to culinary school either. But I now teach the business of baking at the CIA. As a side issue, it surprises me that some of the people who come to CC and ask for our business advice, become irritated if we give them answers that don't fit their preconceived ideas.

I got my MBA years ago, and later went back for the AA in Baking and Pastry Arts. Loved culinary school. Well, I like school in general.

I have a Nutrition degree and a Health Promotion Diploma. So I can tell you exactly how bad my cakes are for you icon_wink.gif

I've taken some professional cake decorating courses but I really do learn the best when teaching myself

Wish I would have went to school for this, but I have a 2 B.S. degrees one in Early Human Development and the other in Family Science. Just completed my masters in Minority and Urban Education.

I learned all of my decorating skills from here, youtube, and google. I can look at pictures and replicate them very well. I am a very visual/ hand on learner.

Many caker's are self-taught, myself included. Thanks to youtube, CC and in my case google! lol I spend MANY hours online educating myself on everything about Cakes, because I have a passion for it, I believe that you can learn anything as long as you have a passion for it. I worked for a major airline for 10 years and was BORED to death! I've been making cakes for about 3 years now and cant get enough of it! lol

I teach advanced pastry arts. We spent three weeks on cakes last semester. I LOVE it!

I have a degee in Business and Marketing. Did a one-month long course in the art of baking and pastry making then did a one-on-one baking course with a teacher and ended up working on cakes with her for 2 years. That is how I learnt in addition to CC, youtube, blogs, etc. Only my mom's older friends and her business clients ask if I went abroad to study in one of those fancy culinary schools. They seem more interested in paper qualifications than my own clientele.

My Mom taught me decorating with butter cream (that's all they used back in the day!), and I'm self taught in fondant. I've been working with fondant now for about 1 1/2 years, and love it!

After making 4 wedding cakes totally slef-taught I took wilton classes - eventually ended up teaching it. Love teaching.....don't like Wilton structer though icon_sad.gif

I too have a degree in Nutrition. Ok, this will tell a little about my age, I took the Wilton home lessons, read their books, magazines and looked at their videos. I have to admit I've learned so much more from here on CC, youtube, internet websites - bloggers and other books. Long story, short, I'm a visual learner too and self taught.
