"I have taken about 6 cake classes to further my experience as a bakery owner. I was so excited to see this class being offered using wafer paper as a medium! I own a bakery and we only work with buttercreams, cream cheese and the whipped icing. (...) I use tons of edible images, patterns, etc on our cakes and this just takes me to a different level of decorating with icing and wafer papers. I love it! I am able to step up to a new level of cake decorating with something that is a tad more new to a lot of people... thanks for the awesome class!"
