I am definitely a fan of learning cake decorating techniques wherever possible. I went to pastry school, and I learned so much. But for beginners, and for those of us who just want to get started right away, Wilton’s cake decorating courses can be pretty useful!
You can look up classes in your area, or you can just buy the books and try and learn on your own. There are four very affordable books you can buy:

3. Fondant and Tiered Cakes – Course 3
4. Fondant and Gum Paste
After leafing through these books, I definitely think they are worth buying. Leafing through these pages can be inspiring if you are looking for a cake decorating idea. I think the books are most useful for learning cake decorating techniques. They can be the perfect place to start for most beginners.
I bought the first 3 courses, and we will go through a few of my favorite techniques here on Cakeb0t with some video tutorials. To follow along, you can purchase all the Wilton course books, or just start with Discover Cake Decorating- Course 1!
