Learned so much in this class. Very informative, well paced, with plenty of time to practice techniques. The instructor paid close attention to individuals and helped point out tips and tricks. Best thing I learned was something I thought I knew... but didn't!.... How to apply even and appropriate pressure to the piping bags to get that perfect finish. Thank you for your patience, humor and attention to detail.
