"Beth Somers presents a great follow up to the first class Wilton Baking Skills where the student is introduced to working with buttercream. Some information is reviewed and repeated but for beginners it will help build the student's confidence. I think that for new decorators the Wilton four class package is definitely they way to go -- a great value."
