My New Endeavour

Over the past few months I have been going through some training to pursuit a lifelong dream of mine. Finally, this week I achieved my goal of becoming a Certified Wilton Instructor.

When I was twelve I decorated my first cake, a 2-D Halloween pumpkin with a simple star tip. Since then, I’ve concentrated primarily on baking, with small ventures into decorating treats for family, however  I always really wanted to up my game by doing something more eye catching. In October of last year, I took three classes at my local Michael’s Stores: http://www.michaels.com/hoping, I could increase my skills and build a small following. By sheer luck, a teaching position opened at a store less than four miles away. I was thrilled at the opportunity, not only would I be doing something I loved, but I wouldn’t have to commute the nearly 80 miles round trip that I did on a daily basis. (L.A. TRAFFIC)

As of today, I can officially announce my certification as a Wilton Method Instructor (WMI), and that I’ll be teaching sometime next month at my local Michael’s Store. “Course 1: Building Buttercream Skills,” is the basics structured enough to give you a solid skill base for basic treat decorating, but fun enough to be enjoyed by teens and adults of all ages.

I’ll continue to post my own recipes, but now include fun ideas on decorating all kinds of treats for family and friends. In the mean time, happy baking!
