Roxanne Wickware: I first came to the Bonnie Gordon School of Cake Design as a student after taking Introduction to Cake Decorating. I knew this was my calling; however, I was terrified to take on clients before I was absolutely confident in my skills. As an intern, I was able to assist the teachers with various tasks for each course offered and before and after classes, I was able to bother everyone with my hundreds of questions! Through the internship, I ended up attending classes as many as five times and it was such a great way to reinforce everything I had learned.
In the end, I was able to help students and troubleshoot almost any situation. It was an invaluable experience. Today, I have my own business "Roxycakes", and I owe it all to this internship. I take on every new project with absolute confidence and apply all of the values I’ve learned through my internship. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity the school has given me and wish every future intern the same wonderful experience!
Rossana Pantaleo: Doing an internship at Bonnie’s is such an excellent learning experience that I recommend it to anyone who wants to become skilled in the arts of baking and decorating cakes. I loved it and you will love it too!
Linda Kettlewell: If you are interested in cake design as a hobby, an artistic outlet or as a potential business venture, then being a Bonnie Gordon intern is something you should definitely be interested in! I had my first cake design class at Bonnie’s school in July ’08 and I was immediately hooked. I started thinking cakes, dreaming cakes, and imagining myself as a cake designer! As an intern, I was able to pick up on tips and tricks of all kinds, I learned more than I could have imagined and I expanded my networks with students, teachers and of course Bonnie herself. It was a wonderful 8 weeks and I would do it all over again if I had the chance!
