"Happy Summer Everyone,

We have a couple seats left for our Isomalt Class Series in Panama City Aug 19 and 20.  We are scheduling classes in Tampa, Ocala, and Ft. Pierce for the fall, so watch for more information coming soon.  And the big news is:

We will be hosting classes by Tami Utley, http://www.sugarartbytamicom/index.html, award winning sugar artist, instructor, and ICES approved teacher  from San Diego, California.  Her classes are amazing.  We will hold the classes in Palm Bay on Sat Nov 12 and Sun Nov 13.  You may have seen Tami's tutorial on gelatin bubbles in the ICES national newsletter.  She also has tutorials on her website for free.  She wants at least 8 students, but no more than 12 per class.  Classes must be paid in full to hold your seat, no refunds.  Please email us or call us at 321-543-3492 to register or for more information.
