Not sure if I can post this in this forum or not, but it seemed most appropriate.

Hi! I'm a new member - just found this site a few or so days ago - and I LOVE it! I've been reading posts and checking out everyone's work. There's some great talent here and it's been motivating me.

My cake-ography:

I've been a home baker and decorator (self-taught!) for pretty much my entire life (I'm 37) but never had the guts to 1) take classes and 2) actually DO something with it. Even though people have been telling me my whole life I should open a bakery. *sigh*

I now have a toddler and am a SAHM and had an epiphany a few weeks ago. I decided to take the Wilton classes (I'm taking all but gumpaste flowers this month) and to teach it at night. and sometime in the near future work on getting a shop.

so that's me in a nutshell! I'll be looking forward to feedback on my cakes and things in the future and salivating over everyone else's work...

Welcome to CC, and don't be intimidated, as you have probably seen, the talent and styles vary a great deal. You will fit in fine. Be prepared to be addicted, the warning is very true!
