I want to start making cakes and decorating them. I have no idea where to start. I have a small amount of experience and I am so lost. Some day I want to go futher with it but now its just for family and friends.

Are you able to take Wilton classes? Even if you don't continue them, the first Course goes over basic icing techniques and borders.

start with a basic cake decorating class at a place like Michael's or AC Moore. Or just get a simple cake decorating instruction book with lots of pictures. Good luck!

If you can't get into any classes you may want to pick up this book - it covers all the basics:

And, of course, check out tutorials on CC and (just search youtube for cake, fondant, buttercream, etc...)

Best wishes!
