Instructor:  Christina Silk

About our Instructor:
Christina took her first cake decorating class at Chelmsford High School when she was in 12th grade. After taking all 4 of the Wilton Cake Decorating classes (buttercream, royal icing, fondant, and Gumpaste), Christina showed a real ability and was asked by her instructor to become a certified instructor.  Christina got her certification as a Wilton Cake Instructor and has been teaching for over 20 years! What she enjoys most about teaching is the reaction her students have when they decorate their first cake.   Christina says, “I can’t believe I made this” is heard often after their first decorating experience in her classes.
