Make Your Own Fun (and cakes)!

Looking for some indoor activities to beat the heat this week? Why not pick up a new skill by taking the classic Wilton Method of Cake Decorating series?

Wondering where the neighborhood cake lady of years gone by got her skills? Wilton classes have been a staple of American Home Economics classes since they started almost a hundred years ago. All the modernized version of Wilton's classes from How to Write on Cakes to How to Make Woodgrain Fondant are available to library card holders free of charge on Creativebug.

Step-by-step classes of the updated Wilton Method of cake decorating are available on Creativebug. Pause and replay as needed, read questions and answers, download PDF instructions all on this site.

Looking to learn something a little less messy? Why not take a look at these ideas for Back to School Organizing or brush up on an old skill with classes like Colored Pencil Workshop: A Daily Practice or get ahead on planning for gifts with the Creative Bug pattern library.

Don't see anything on Creativebug that meets your skill level? Why not check out one of our many Craft and DIY Magazines from Overdrive? With titles like Woodcraft Magazine, Today's Quilter, and American Craft, you're sure to find something to enrich your life with electronic resources from Fulton County Library System.
