rated 5 stars

yes please

painting is complex and this class was absolutely perfect for beginners. i literally feel confident to make this exact cake next week. tips were worth the wait in gold!!! if people wanted a shorter session then they probably are also fans of cutting corners which a good cake decorator does not make. choose another hobby. LOVED IT! CHEERS TO THE INSTRUCTOR! Thank you Craftsy!
