With feelings of accomplishment and also sentiments of nostalgia touching my heart, I have finally decided to close the doors to my school, on May 2007, after 18 years of sharing. As of the year 2003, I had been busy teaching regular workshops, and then in between, engrossed in video productions trying to capture my classes on DVD. Ultimately, I found it impossible to do both, so I decided to fully commit myself for the next several years to filming my exciting series of instructional DVDs. At least nine are already planned. These are now an excellent substitute for those wishing to learn my techniques and about 1/4 the price to learn the same amount of information.

Many of my past students are telling me too that the way I am now filming my DVDs, that they are even better than taking a class in person. These videos are recorded like a movie, not just a quick demonstration, so there is great thoroughness to their execution. My patient, step-by-step method of teaching too makes learning easy and being able to replay the DVD guarantees success. Students therefore quickly improve their skills with any of these DVD sets, setting off on a magical and rewarding career in the world of cake decorating!
