What my students are saying…
“This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I’ve been taking the Wilton gum paste and fondant classes but want to make accents that are more appealing to eat. I’m looking forward to using my skills in the medium of chocolate! Yummy and pretty! Excellent lessons!” – Craftsy user Darcy P
“Superb, inspiring, easy to follow instructions from a very capable tutor. Loved your class Erin and can’t wait to try out all of your fabulous lessons. Now just to temper that chocolate – lol. Many thanks” – Craftsy user Dilys M
“Oh my goodness it’s Brilliant … I am a sugar crafter but want to know chocolate … We’ll this is the one … Thank you so much” – Craftsy user sandra-pa4725067
“Great class. Erin has made flower making a doable for everyone. As one who struggles with gumpaste flower making this is a perfect alternative and in my opinion much tastier way to decorate my cakes. The peony is my favorite and its a fun fast no fuss no muss technique that achieves beautiful results. Thank you !!!!!!!!! wanting more classes like this one” – Craftsy user
Love this class!!!
“Erin is a fantastic instructor. This class was as enjoyable to watch as it was instructional. What I particularly love about Erin’s class is that I learned 5 specific (and food safe!) techniques to design my own stamps and cakes. I can envision myself applying these techniques to a wide variety of cakes, and maybe even cookies. I think I’m sometimes an anomaly in the cake decorating world, because I really only feel comfortable using food-safe items on my cakes (whereas some others are a bit more lenient and will go non-toxic, but not necessarily food-safe). I really loved that every solution Erin presented is food-safe, but still incredibly creative and beautiful. Thanks for a great class!” – Craftsy user Clare S
“Erin is a great teacher and I love all the techniques! I have some ideas I will have to try now! Will be posting some pics when I’m done! Thank you for this amazing class!” – Craftsy user CDodd12
Take This Class
“I found the techniques in this class very interesting. Erin explained everything very well, and I didn’t finish the class feeling like I had to be a professional to do this. She also answered all questions in the discussion area as well. I’m excited to make my own stamp! I would definitely take another class from Erin.” – Craftsy user SmileyPancake
Money well spent
“To say am pleased with this class is putting it mildly. Having taken almost all the cake decorating classes on this platform, I can say this is by far one of the most informative..it goes straight to the point but carefully makes sure you get every detail it’s conveying…I got to learn how to make about 7 new flowers along with these new great techniques in cake decorating. I’ve watched the class twice already in 1 day. Am truly happy and recommend this class. Erin your the best. Thank you soooooo much.” – Craftsy user Dainty Affairs
“I am very impressed with Erin Gardner – her surname definitely does her justice. She demonstrated a number of flowers, that although looked complicated to make, was relatively easy when Erin took you through it step by step. All her decorating was so straightforward, easy to understand and no fuss!” – Craftsy user AzZee
“I’m hoping to learn to do wired flowers to decorate my sisters wedding cake and this class has given me the knowledge and confidence to do just that! Thanks for sharing your talent with us x” – Craftsy user blondiefreeth
“This a class full of new and simple techniques. Erin is a great teacher, all cake designs are easy to follow and with a simple but elegant touch.” – Craftsy user Cristina Lopez
