Much as I love the Wilton old syllabus, the new one offers fresh new ideas in cake, cupcake and cookie decorating. Scroll down, and if you see like what you see, just enroll for classes.
The four new syllabus, from top left (clockwise): Decorating Basics (everything buttercream), Flowers & Cake Design (royal icing and fondant flowers), Gum Paste and Fondant (gum paste flowers), and Extra Flowers (extra flowers in royal icing and gum paste which can be included in the main syllabus or offered on its own).
The instructions in the new books are clearer as they have bulleted points below each picture.
