About this fondant DVD.
I have taken several classes over the year, and learned from different instructors. What I have found, is that every decorator takes what they have learned or discovered, and makes it "their own". Every person I have learned from, has very wonderful little tricks that fix something, or streamline something. Each person has nuggets of knowledge that is unique to them that they have taken from their experiences. This DVD is no different. Sharon has great nuggets of information that I have not heard from other instructors (obviously there is some of the same). And, she seems to have more "tricks" than other instructors I have learned from. The techniques she teaches about fondant work beautifully! The info to get rid of the dreaded "bulge" from around the sides...genius!!! I got a lot of wonderful info that helped me out on my fondant cakes.
About Sharon's DVD's
The thing I like most from these DVD's, is that I can watch the hours of instruction, and get one on one instruction (basically). There are not 20 other people asking questions and taking up class time. I am the kind of person who likes to learn the basics, and practice to perfect. I can go back and watch something if I do not remember what I saw. Another thing, Sharon is WONDERFUL at getting back to you (she will even get back to you on Amazon, how great!!!). If you have any questions, email her.
After spending TONS of money taking classes, these are wonderful! You will spend a fraction of what a "cake class" costs (not Wilton, but an actual decorating class to learn more advanced decorating), and learn the same thing if not more. So far, these DVD's are great.
If you are a decorator, learn from as many sources as you can, there are always new and improved ways to decorate, and different techniques from different people. Get as much knowledge as possible. These DVD's help.
P.S., I do not know Sharon, so this is not a biased review. I actually am just a novice cake decorator who LOVES to learn new things, and have several learning avenues. This just happens to be one of them that I am glad I put my money into (let's face it, cake decorating is not cheap to learn!!!).
