Thank you to my Course 1 students who ended tonight.

I can’t tell you the fun and laughs I had with this group!

Next month they will be returning for Course 2 and am so excited to have them returning.

Speaking of Course 2, next month is our new roll out of the newly revised Course 2.  If you are a returning student and would like to come retake it with me, I’ll have a free gift for you.  My Course 2 runs on Monday nights starting July 7th at 6:30 pm.

All of my favorite buttercream techniques have been brought back, and we will be doing my two favorite the first night instead of working with fondant.  You have no idea how giddy I am and how much I giggle when I think about class on July 7th.   SUPER ECSTATIC!

If you can make it then I’d love to see you!  Great things are happening at my classes in July.

Confectionately yours,

Carolyn

Open House tomorrow and tons of new stuff to register for!

Want something to do for the summer?  You have tons of options with our classes and would love to have you come see us and register for one of the new Courses or Project Classes.

Open House will be held from 11 am to 2pm.   Four week courses are $20, AND you will get a $20 voucher good for your supplies.

What’s new? 

  • New Course 1, Course 2, and Course 3 curriculum.

Course one has about 6 new techniques to learn.

Course two has a whole new look, tons of new techniques and some beautiful new flowers.

Course three has a new bow, painting on fondant, and a few more wonderful techniques.

  • Three new project classes. These classes are each 2 hours and cost $15 each per person.  You can find more information on the links bar above for Adult Project Classes.

Animal Print Cookies – Learn how to make Zebra stripes, cheetah and giraffe prints a few different ways.

Advanced Stringwork – Stringwork is a very technical but beautiful way to decorate.

Fondant Cupcakes – Using Wilton’s new tools, I’ll show you some beautiful ways to emboss, cut and create fondant covered cupcakes that are sure to be a hit at any event.

Also, with the addition of Polly to the Wilton team at our Michaels I will be offering kids classes on Saturday afternoons at the same time as Polly’s Courses. This allows for you to not have to worry about setting up a baby sitter, having your husband watch the child(ren) for the afternoon and gives them a fun and safe environment to be in while you take your course.

If you are interested in taking any of these classes, tomorrow would be a perfect opportunity to register due to the class discounts, and voucher for the supplies.

I hope to see you there.

Confectionately yours,

Carolyn
