Just found out they changed up the courses and I really would like to learn to do gum paste flowers. Has anyone else taken course 4 without taking course 3? If I take course 3 I'm worried I might be a little bored since I've made many fondant cakes in my life (though it has been a couple years) and made my brother's wedding cake (5 tiers!).
How much of course 3 is working with gum paste? 1 session? 2 sessions?
I've thought about buying the course 3 book and working through the gum paste sections independently and then taking the 4th class.
Any recommendations or suggestions?
And you can take Course 4 without take Course 3. We've got a gal in our Course 4 class who hasn't yet taken Course 3.
Remember when you taught the Course with the bow and the tiered cakes? You did work with gum paste at that time it just wasn't the RTU kind that Wilton sells now. We made it using fondant and Gumtex and with that we made the rose and the bow.
I think you would do well in course 4 because I know you can do it!! Just make sure you get a syllabus when you sign up for the course and bring everything it tells you to bring. Let us see your lovely flowers when you finish.
When you take the course, you will get a copy of the Class Lesson Plan and I know you will be able to do these.
Good luck and have fun,
I say go for it DutchessPDX!!!
If you are just starting out all over again, you might want to take all the new classes. There have been quite a few changes.
