Lambeth Class with Kathleen Lange

Dawn Parrott, Kathlreen Lange, Theresa Happe

I recently had the pleasure of taking a Lambeth class with Kathleen Lange at the Florida ICES Mini Classes event in Orlando, Florida. Despite the fact that I've been piping since the age of 8, I was in for a huge wake up call. Forget that you can pipe a border around a cake in 30 seconds; you've never paid as much attention to the accuracy of your piping until you've taken Kathleen's class.

I'd loved the Lambeth style of cake decorating for a long time and been an admirer of Kathleen's work since I had first seen it a few years back. Kathleen is the only Lambeth instructor in the U.S., and I couldn't wait to take my piping skills to the next level.

By the end of the first mini-class, I realized why Kathleen offers the boot camp, an intense 8 hour a day course. A lot of practice is necessary to get the techniques down pat.

By day two, we had all improved somewhat, but a lot more practice is in order if I'm ever going to pipe like Kathleen.

Here are the students from the first mini-class.
