The The Bakers Dozen: Pulled/blown sugar classes.

I would LOVE to take blown/pulled sugar classes. From what I understand it is VERY difficult to self teach? I am a self taught cake decorator, I have mastered buttercream, fondant, and GP. Now I would like to be able to offer pulled/blown sugar. I live in Northern NY, close to Canada, and am willing to travel a little ways if necessary. Anyone know where I would look to find info on these?

The person who taught me was taught by Ewald Notter, who just won the Beaver Creek pastry competition, and she swears by him. Check out his International School of Confectionary Arts at

The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY
offers a 5 day Pulled, Poured and Blown sugar class taught by Master Pastry Chef Joe McKenna. The class is good for beginners.

Do you know if anyone can make bubbles from pulled sugar? I would like to apply them on the
border of a 3 tier (separate tiers) wedding cake.
I don't want to make these bubbles my self, just purchase them already made. I live in the Sacramento, California area, if you know of anyone or bakery that does this creative work please email me at

Thank you,
