I haven't watch all of them yet since I do not have a long time to sit in front of my computer, but I have browsed the different topics already.... and I love it. This is the class I have been waiting for , for a looong time.... and finally, it is here :) I hope that in the future you will come up with another online class dedicated solely on piping different kinds of buttercream flowers.....INTENSIVE BUTTERCREAM FLORAL PIPING. I will be the first one to purchase it. Another thing that I like about your online class, is that if I want to go to the next subject or go back to the previous topic, i can easily do it right away.

I just finished watching the course, So much detail, the flowers look as if they were freshly picked from the garden, simply gorgeous and elegant... The way you displayed these cakes makes a beautiful centerpiece. I'm enrolled in a lot of cake decorating classes, what I love about this class is that you instruct from the beginning of the project to the end result,

Hi there, I'm Darlene, baker, cake maker and creator of www.make-fabulous-cakes.com. It's a website that I started back in 2008 where I share my adventures in cake making, recipes and tips about cake decorating. I've been making cakes since 1997, and back then there was no internet, so I had to teach myself how to decorate cakes from books and magazines. Learn more about me here. Now with the help of the internet, my goal here is to help you shorten that learning process. Come and join me in my kitchen and let's start making that fabulous cake!
