......I just wanted to say "Hi"

My name's Elaine and I live in the UK. I've been lurking for a while now and I've finally plucked up the courage to say hello icon_biggrin.gif

I've been cake decorating for about 6 years now and have been demonstarting for about a year. I've 2 boys 4yrs & 7yrs, that keep me on my toes, and a hubby.

My youngest has just started school fulltime now, and so giving me more time to do my cakes. I'm busy at the moment with my competition cakes for the NEC in a couple of weeks, where I'm hoping people will like my entries, and have just started to make tutorials.

My skills mainly lay with novelty sculpting and modelling and if I can help anyone out i will, I've put a few in the gallery if you want to take a peek icon_smile.gif

There's so many great cake photo's on this site that I'm running out of hours in the day to see them all, and loads a great advice.

Thanks for listening, I couldn't find an 'official' place to say hello, so I hope it's ok putting it in this thread icon_biggrin.gif

Hello Elaine! My name is Karen and I am from Ontario, Canada (originally from New York, USA). It's a pleasure to meet you. I am sure you already know how wonderful this site is, so I don't have to tell you.

I joined back in July and have quickly become a CC addict. The people here are so friendly and helpful and I have learned a lot from them and love them all!

Have a fabulous day and I look forward to your posts and chatting with you! icon_biggrin.gif

Watch this space for more as I'm currently working on a few others, and have got more ideas in the pipeline, Also if you see anything that I've done or do and you think it would make a good tutorial, just holler!

Well, hello - CC successfully pulled out another lurcker! haahaahaak icon_evil.gif I tried that to, but it only lasted about a week! icon_lol.gif

You have been a member much longer than me, so you already know how fab this site is! And, now that you have posted, it will become so much more of a "must-have" experience! icon_razz.gif

Your cakes are great! My favorite one has to be the one with the farm animals icon_surprised.gif, great idea and great job!

Keep in touch, I love this place.

To many more encounters -
