Hi everyone.. I just wanted to say "Hi" and let you all know that I have really enjoyed this site. I have become hooked on cake decorating and love it! I decided to try it back in april of this year with Wilton's course 1, and am getting ready to do course 3 next week. I am really excited! I thought I might enjoy it, but it turns out I LOVE it! It's a good thing I am friends with all my neighbors, as they are all getting cakes now. Also, I have really enjoyed looking at all of your pics. You guys are great! Thanks to everyone who has contributed recipies, advice and everything else. There is so much I want to try now!

I also am a newbie. I joined a few weeks ago and just have been reading and getting to know the website. I belong to some other groups but this group is PACKED with information! I haven't learned how to set up my profile completely yet but will as I find the time.

I'm not even sure yet how to logon everyday and see what's new, is there a shortcut way? Hope that's not to stupid of a question. It's just that there is SO MUCH stuff to look at. I don't want to miss anything!

Anyway, I enjoy being on this site and know I will definitely be spending alot of time here!

Newbie here too. I actually signed on a couple months ago and forgot about the site (stupid, stupid me) Anyhow, I just decorate cakes with my kids for fun. We're always trying the cakes we see in the Family Fun magazine. I love doing cakes and cupcakes of course for kids schol parties. And I'm not too bad at it (at least, I don't think). However, I had NO IDEA what fondant was or buttercream, I just used the plain o' Pillbury or Betty crocker frosting! Added regular food coloring for colors! And 3D cakes? I had no clue!

So-ya'll have inspired me! I ordered the kitchen aid mixer-apparently a MUST HAVE and signed up for my first Wilton course last night. I start in 2 weeks and I can't wait!

Wish me luck and hope to had my own masterpieces to the gallery!

I have to admit its difficult to post pictures after looking at others-very intimidating...but very inspirational! I would like to say reading all of these forums is so educational and interesting-thank you everyone for sharing all of your wonderful experience-I can't tell you how much time and agony you have all saved me already.

Maybe Jackie, could make a gallery called "my first cake" Then some of you newbies could see some of us "oldbies". It would be good for a laugh, and you deffinately wouldn't be intimidated anymore! LOL

My first cake at wilton class was so pitiful! It makes me laugh!!!
