MCC offers calligraphy, cake decorating

CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College’s Continuing Education Department offers classes in the art of calligraphy and cupcake decorating.

• Art of Calligraphy: Learn the beautiful art of Western calligraphy and create original greeting cards, invitations, framed quotes or even design dazzling posters or event fliers. Beginning to intermediate students will observe easy-to-follow demonstrations and try several alphabets, such as Gothic, Foundational and Celtic. The class will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturdays, March 2 through March 23, in Room A112. The cost is $89. Use course ID: NCF S07 003 when registering. 

• Cupcake Temptations: Participants will frost and decorate cupcakes with ideas for Easter, spring events and graduation. A list of all supplies will be sent to students before the first class. Beginning cake-decorating skills will help, but it’s not a requirement. This will be the first in a series of classes on cupcakes and decorating ideas. The class will be from 7 to 9 p.m. March 15 in Room D158. The cost is $25. Use course ID: NCU S71 003 when registering.
