Announcing new Craftsy Classes!

Hello everyone!  And Happy Monday!  Okay, so most people aren't all that excited about Monday's... but us cake decorators/bakers, it's our slow day!  But, we're even... because on Friday's when everyone is like "wahoo, it's Friday!" or "TGIF," cake decorators everywhere are hunkering down to finish cakes for the weekend.  Anyway, I digress...

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm excited because I've picked out the next Craftsy classes I'm going to take!  If you aren't familiar with Craftsy, I highly recommend you check them out.  You can take all kinds of craft courses online.  I've already taken quite a few, and I have to get caught up on my reviews!  But, I've seen a couple of new ones posted that I'm excited about!

The first is How to Start a Cake Business.
Retail Price: $39.99
You Save: $10.00

Now, I do have a cake business... but I'm always looking for business advice and ideas to grow my business... or even just ideas to make sure it runs efficiently.  And because this industry is such a fast growing one, it's a topic that I've found lots of other cake decorators/bakers looking for advice for.  If you frequent Cake Central, then you are probably familiar with the countless posts asking other members for business advice.  I am so excited that Craftsy has made this class and I cannot wait to check it out!  Be sure to look for the review to follow soon!

The other new class I am excited about is How to Teach it.
Retail Price: $39.99
You Save: $10.00

I already do tutorials on my YouTube channel.  But, I'm always looking for ways to improve how I present things.  And I've also found a venue near me where I could potentially hold hands-on classes!  But teaching a real life class is much different that putting together a relatively short demonstration of how to do things!  I'm also not great at coming up with ideas for things to teach/demonstrate!  So, I am hoping that this class will be a great tool for me to grow as a teacher!

As soon as I have completed these courses I'll post my thoughts/reviews.  But, until then, take a look at other Craftsy classes that I've already reviewed!

I didn't decorate any cakes over the holiday weekend, so I don't have any new creations to share... but I did enlist my son and nephew to decorate cakes for me.  So you can check them out working on their masterpieces!

UPDATE: Craftsy just announced their "Spring Sale."  From today, April 5th through Monday, April 8th they will have a different set of classes on sale for up to 75% off each day!

Happy Caking :)
