“I've taken several cake decorating classes on Craftsy, and Marina's classes are amazing. She is so generous with her knowledge. She demonstrates numerous techniques during the course of the class that can be applied to cakes for all kinds of occasions. I love that during the course of the video, not everything is perfect. She has a few mishaps, but shows how to fix them.”
