I was so excited to take this class! I am so excited to have this class! Anne is amazing! I cant believe she was willing to share her secret to making such a masterpiece?! I've spent hours marveling over her sweet 16 dress cake--now, with Anne's step by step instructions, I have the tools to make my own! Truly, The Best Class on Craftsy!

One Of The Best Classes On Craftsy!
This was an excellent class. One of the best I have taken here on Craftsy. Anne does a fabulous job explaining and showing you her techniques. I would recommend this class. Can't wait to take another one of her classes.

Fantastic class! Instructor shows ALL the steps...and if something took time...started it and then showed the completed underside of the pleated cake skirt (for example)... EVERY step was there...the most complete class tutorial I have seen yet!
I will definitely look out for more classes by this instructor...loved it!
I have an idea for a dress...and have never done "structure" or "carving"...and now I know I will be able to do it. I can't wait to start the cake. Worth every penny for this class 🙂
