Common Questions

Can I pay for classes online?

If you register online, I will send you an invoice that can be paid with a credit card.  If you wish to pay with cash, you can pay the day of the class.

How much does a class cost?


At my Hobby Lobby location, the tuition for classes will vary according to the type of class.  Two week courses have a regular tuition of $40 cash or credit. .  Kits and supplies you may need can be bought at any store that carries cake decorating supplies.  Project Classes and Kid's Classes are $20.00 for tuition.. Supplies are extra.


Do I need additional supplies?

There are supplies for each course that may make things easier/more convenient for you but in many cases, tools you have at home will work. I will share optional tools and supplies you may wish to purchase, but the only additional supplies that you may need would be extra decorating bags, and icing colors.  Prices will vary.  This will depend you and what you think you need to be successful.  You will also be bringing baked items such as cakes, other baked treats, icing ingredients, fondant and gum paste.  


For those that want to spend the minimum amount possible, I will let you know which supplies are necessary and which are optional .  For many tools, there are different styles and versions with different price points to suit everyone.


Do I have to take the Courses in order?

Students are strongly encouraged to take Basic Buttercream as a prerequisite to other classes. You do not have to take the rest of the courses in order.  If you took  classes previously, and now want to move on to the other classes, you may. Check the course descriptions to help you determine what course you are interested in.  If it has been a long time since you took a course, you may want to sign up for Basic Buttercream as a review/refresher.


Do you offer children's classes?

I offer project classes geared toward children and families once a month during the school year and more in the summer.  Parents are encouraged to stay with their child during class and must stay in the store during the entire class.


Note:  Cake Decorating 2 session classes are geared to the adult student (13+).  If you choose for your child under the age of 13 to take a 2 week course,  it must be with a paid, registered adult student; both the child and the adult must register/pay.  Children typically can handle Buttercream Basics but the more advanced classes can be too challenging for some.  Please use your best judgment concerning signing children up for a class. Feel free to contact me with questions or if you need additional information. No child under the age of 12 will be allowed in any 2 week courses without the instructor's approval.

Do you offer private lessons?

I teach private lessons to students requesting one to one instruction. These classes are held at Hobby Lobby during available days and times. If interested, please contact me for more specific information at or 407-538-7789.

Do you offer Group Events?

Yes, I  do host parties for small groups, including scouts, civic groups and birthdays. I will teach the class of your choosing. These decorating parties are held at Hobby Lobby during available days and times. If interested, please contact me for more specific information at or 407-538-7789.
