Courses 2 & 3 are underway as well, with new fresh techniques and ideas, new flowers and returns of some classics!  Classes will be starting in July!

 The gum paste and fondant flowers are gone, and it's all Royal Icing, including some new, and some returning classics.

Gum Paste and Fondant is refreshed with painting on Fondant and more exciting ideas!

Today is a fabulous day! I received my Certification in the mail!
Unfortunately, my scanning printer isn't hooked up yet, so I took a pic with my phone.

I just came back from my 17 day vacation --a cruise in the Western Caribbean and ten days with my fab granddaughters and family,
and then home to fun mail!  Of course, there's also the grey parts of the clouds with all those silver linings--I'm stuck in my new apartment, because somehow I lost my keys this morning while unloading the luggage from the car, Fred's gone off for the day and I can't leave the building for fear of getting locked out all together!!  On the silver lining side--I unpacked all the suitcases, put everything away and have a little blog time!  So, it's never all bad! LOL

New Classes coming!

Wilton is refurbishing and refreshing all the classes, starting with Course 1--Building Buttercream Skills, which will begin in May 2014. My first class starts, in Lisbon (Michaels) on Sunday, May 4, from 10:30-12:30 and the classes are only $20 now! If you take the New Crazy for Cupcakes stand-alone class for $10, you get a $10 coupon off the Building Buttercream Skills! The Crazy for Cupcakes class is a good basic introduction to cake decorating with the Wilton Method and is designed to show you some skills, and get you excited to start Cake Decorating! Here are some examples I did for the class yesterday:

One other new thing is that Wilton is Certifying instructors again!  I'm one of the first (since I jumped right into the exam in as soon as they put it online!) I'll post my certificate when it comes in the mail!
