Ok so I have read a ton of posts/threads and am still confused as ever!! I am a 24yr old mom who has always dreamed of being a cake decorator. Being a mom at such a young age forced me to put things on hold and now I have no idea where to start! My choices are a community college that has the Midwest Culinary Institute, that offers associate's degrees in Culinary Arts and Pastry Arts. Additionally, four certificates-Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts, Personal Chef and Dietary Management-are available in the MCI. Or there is the baking and pastry program at the International Culinary Schools at the Art Institute- but I have yet to find any specific info on this. Can anyone give me any guidance??? I'm so confused and have no clue what to do. I'm worried about my age hurting me, because I have no formal training at all, and just want to move on with things as quickly as possible. Thank you so much for any help!!
