LSC-Tomball to Launch New Cake Decorating Classes

The Continuing Education Department at Lone Star College-Tomball (LSC-Tomball) will start offering three cake decorating courses designed to prepare students for a career as a cake decorator in a bakery.

With the growing popularity of cake decorating shows on television, more people are interested in developing their skills in this area. “Cake Decorating I,” “Cake Decorating II” and “Fondant and Gum Paste” are courses that will take the student beyond the hobby level to the marketable industry level. Each of these two-week courses will be taught by Wilton Method instructors.

“Cake Decorating I” will be held June 20-29 on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. “Cake Decorating II” runs July 26 through August 4 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. “Fondant and Gum Paste” goes from July 25 to August 3 on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

To view these course offerings for the fall, visit Lonestar.edu/CE. For more information, call 281-290-2924 or e-mail Andrea.J.Barefield@LoneStar.edu. LSC-Tomball is located at 30555 Tomball Parkway, at the intersection of State Highway 249 and Zion Road.
