hi all i'm new to the whole cake decorating thing, and dont have a clue where to start, i can bake quite well but when it comes to an occasion i often go for shop bought pre decorated cakes. i would love to start making my own creations, just dont know where to start. any advice for a rookie would be fantastic.
thanks in advance.

Buy a copy of Sugarshack's DVD on working with buttercream. That's your beginning point, and it's well worth the money (not that much!).

Thanks for the kind words, ngfcake. icon_biggrin.gif

That thread required an update as Wilton redid their site, so those links no longer work. icon_sad.gif

Here's the updated thread w/more info and working links:
