Hi everyone!

I am new to Cake Central and I am very excited about getting some tips and new ideas from all of you.

I am from Barrie, ON, Canada and have basically taught myself about cake decorating but I am looking to sign up for a few classes in the fall.

Hope to get to know you all better!

Welcome Chub!! I hope you find lots of info and lots of "cake friends" here! It's a wonderful site!

If I may ask, where is Barrie, ON? I swear I've seen signs pointing that way before. I live in Michigan and my dh and I go to Benmiller, Goderich and Stratford, ON, every year for the Stratford Festival. Am I remembering right? If so, you aren't really that far from me!!

Welcome again!!

Welcome! I live about 45 minutes from you in Nottawa (just outside of Collingwood). A girlfriend of mine just took the Wilton classes at Michael's in Barrie and loved them.

Welcome!! Pull up a chair and join us. I have been here since April and I love it. This site has taught me more than any class could have. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, but you probably have figured that out by now. Most days (actually several times a day) I feel like I am sitting down with a group of friends and discussing our passion over a cup of tea. Welcome again and enjoy!

Welcome! I have been here for a short time and I have just loved this site. I have learned so much and have seen so many beautiful cakes and cookies here. Everyone is so willing to share what has worked and what doesn't work for them.
