I took a cake decorating class at the local technical college here. You can take like cake decorating I, II, and III. Places like Michael's also offers cake decorating classes and they may be cheaper than the local college. I did get a certificate when I took the class at the local Technical College. Good is alot of fun. Cake decorating is an art, It amazes me to watch a decorator create a rose on a tool that looks like a roofing nail. Decorators I know have people tell them that it would be a fun job. What they do not understand that some decorators in the larger bakeries have to produce 60 to 80 cakes a day! The wife did it for 21 years!
