Summer is Almost Here!

This post is mainly for the locals, as it pertains to my cake decorating class schedule and some camps I'll be offering in June. Nothing like a little shameless self-promotion on a Thursday, right?

As you may know, I recently started teaching Wilton classes at the Hobby Lobby in Franklin. Right now, those classes meet on Saturday afternoons, and I'm working towards adding an evening class option at that location. I will update my Upcoming Class Schedule page once that's all finalized and official.

I still teach Wilton classes at the Brentwood/Cool Springs Michaels store. At the moment I only have classes scheduled there for Sunday afternoons, but there's another Wilton Instructor at that store who teaches night classes. I'm happy to offer weekday classes at that location if there's enough interest.

The really exciting news is that next month I'm teaching two different cake decorating camps at the Rec Center. These are for ages 12 and up and will meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons from 1:00 - 4:00.

  • Essential Skills Camp meets on June 13, 15, and 17. We will focus on cake decorating basics and working with buttercream icing. Students also learn how to use color flow and royal icing, in addition to more advanced piping techniques.
  • Rolled Fondant Camp meets on June 20,  22,  and 24, and it covers all the basics of working with rolled fondant. This fun and versatile icing is the perfect medium for expressing creativity. Students will learn how to cover and decorate a cake with rolled fondant, as well as how to make simple, hand-molded decorations and flowers. We'll also use a variety of tools to create stunning effects and realistic flowers.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the classes or camps. Also, if there is something you're interested in learning how to do, but it isn't listed, let me know.
