"Catherine, I truly enjoyed and learned alot of techniques from your class!! Thank you so much! I have been wanting to make a 3d project for quite some time but was always worried about how it would hold together and how to attach alot of things. I am now so inspired to attempt this without being so scared. You were very explicit on your details, as well as taking the time to explain and show us each project of the cake."
