I want to make Wedding Cakes and Pastries! Do I need to go back to school for to learn?

Ok, so I graduated from Johnson & Wales in 2001 with my BS Degree in Food Service Management. I always keep saying how I should have continued on in Baking & Pastry, because now I really want to make Wedding Cakes, Truffles, Cookies and Specialty gift baskets and open a shop one day. Now that I know this is what I want to do, do you think I need to go back to school to learn all of this? Or would I be wasting my time and money? Especially since I own over $40,000 in school loans now as it is.... Should I get a job at a bake shop and make $10-$12 an hour and risk losing my decent paying Supervisor Job, to fulfill my dream??? What do you think I should do?
