Brilliant Class

This class was so useful. It had the same quality as Crafty's paid classes. Wonderful.

rated 5 stars

Excellent Tips!

This course is loaded with tips and techniques for the buttercream newbie as well as someone who's twirled a spatula around more than a few cakes. I don't consider myself a beginner, but I appreciated a lot of what was taught in this class.

Loved this class! Great for beginners or as a refresher. Looking forward to taking more classes with Joshua in the future.

My Firtst Class on Craftsy and I LOVED it!

Josh you are just simply awesome!. I have baked on and off all my life and have just decided to start a home based baking business. I am building my skills and recipes and your class gave me so much confidence. I now feel like I can get to a point where my work is just as good as the professionals. I am actually making some cupcakes today and I thought of going with an Italian Buttercream but after watching this video I feel confidant that I can do the Swiss Meringue Buttercream.

Excellent Class

This class was one of the best I've taken (even surpassing many I paid big money to see.)
