Are you interested in taking cake decorating classes in Oklahoma City?
Cake decorating classes can be a great way to explore your creative side. In fact, learning to decorate cakes and cupcakes can be a rewarding hobby or even a new career. The art of making beautiful cakes has been growing wildly in popularity and there is really no limit to where it can take you. It’s one of the best things I’ve learned and most one of the most enjoyable things to teach!
Most of my professional career (20+years) has been as a public school art teacher to grades pre-K -12 and I am also a certified Wilton Method Cake Decorating Instructor. I have been teaching cake decorating classes professionally since 2015 and I would love to see you in one of my classes, bring some friends!
