Also, in this style class, students of different skill levels can join together where beginners are not overwhelmed and advanced students are not under-challenged.
Just yourself! At each full-length class, students are provided with a packet containing step-by-step instructions, class-related recipes, decorating ideas and some useful tips, and at the end of class, you often get to sample the finished results!
