  • Have you looked at the Wilton website. They always have lots of ideas. If you want a business training is really the best idea. If not in a school or classes have you thought about talking to your local bakery? Offer free work hours for lessons.

  • Michaels art stores offfer cake decorating classes for like $30 for 4 maybe 6 classes. couple of hours each. THey look good, i haven't been able to take them yet, can't schedule work, class and babysitter. I will. I do cakes for my kids and nieces and nephews birthdays, just love it.

  • Most Hobby Lobby stores offer the classes in their stores, and they are very reasonable.

  • I'm with you on Wilton's website. There are thousands of tips and different cakes with specific instructions you can practice at home. Any of the Wilton books have basic decorating directions in them as well.
