Hi,
I have been admiring all your lovely cakes here & wanted to know where to start?
I have made some delicious cakes & cupcakes recently as I have only just discovered I do have a knack for baking, only thing is they taste great but look dull & boring.I want them to look as delicious as they taste.

So the question is where to start?Do I do a beginners class or do I start with a specialty class ie:-
chocolate decorations-
flower making(beginners)
decorating biscuits
decorating designer cupcakes
I guess at the moment my aim would be just to decorate my cupcakes, then see if I have a knack for it or am I all thumbs.
any help & advice would be great, many thanks
Chris

I never had any classes. I just watched youtube videos and learn here from cake central.

If you are in the U.S.....I suggest you start by taking the Wilton basic cake decorating classes at some place like Micheal's, Hobby Lobby or a local cake supply shop.

I get the impression you might be in the UK..... sorry but can't help there. As little as I know about UK it seems classes are offered in long semesters - usually at a cake supply shop or university?
