We took a class at a gourmet grocery store in Dallas. While the cake tasted delicious, I did not learn sufficient cake decorating skills. Buffy's class taught me superior, useful skills that are very practical. Not to mention, the class was very fun! THANK YOU! Natalie (private class with friends & family, Dec. 2010)

Cake Decorating 101
Great class that I would highly recommend to others. Buffy made the class really fun and she is extremely helpful and patient if you don't understand a topic. class went through all the basics of decorating a cake, starting with just a blank, unfrosted cake. I didn't realize how much went into making the finished product, this class is a must! Kimberly
I really enjoyed this course, and learned much more than I thought I'd be able to. She went at a really nice pace and made sure everyone understood the concepts. I really liked that she both showed us how to decorate and helped us hands-on, especially while making the flowers. I also really appreciated that she let us stay after the class was over to practice and answer questions. Very cool class! Rachel
My only complaint is that I had to stop! Eleni

What an absolute joy to take this class from such a knowledgeable person who has such a fabulous personality! I'll definitely be back for more classes. Donna
What I like the best is all the tips that we get in class, more than on T.V. or a magazine... all the secrets! Sahara

Instructor was a pleasure to be around. Answered questions well.
So much fun!
You are so talented, Buffy! thank you for sharing!
Buffy is an amazing artist and a generous teacher. I really can't say enough about her beginning cake class. I learned far more than I ever expected and had a really good time. If you're thinking of taking a cake class this is the one. The class size is just right. You can have fun together and still get all of the one-on-one help that you need. It is very well organized and you'll go home with a folder that includes all of the secret tricks that professional cake artists probably don't want you to know. I enjoy watching FOOD TV and I have yet to see any of this information there. Jeri
