"Once again Beth Somers hits a home run! This class gives the student a good exposure to working with fondant and creating some nice and doable practice pieces. Many new decorators are intimidated by fondant but if you follow Beth's advice you find it's not really all that difficult. Beth presents clear and easy techniques. This class like many I have taken should be watched at least once before trying to follow along live. Give yourself time to practice before moving to live cakes."
