I've wondered that too icon_biggrin.gif
I know of 2 men on here, who both give excellent advise! Hopefully some will chime in, b/c I've been curious about the ratio of women to men on here!

I'm actually a guy believe it or not. I'm sure a lot of people thought I am a woman.

I'm addicted in cake decorating as well as cake central. I really don't have any tips but hey girl.

That's right RylanTy,I thought you are a woman. But I think most of us just guess,don't we,we just assume the people we are interacting with on here are women.I would love to know the men though.

Solascakes haha. I don't blame you... I mean most people in here are women and I'm definitely sure. The only guy I see Doug and I think there's a guy named Michael. I'm pretty sure there are more.

I think there is someone named Cupcakeman, or something like that. I missed the username once and still referred to him as a she.

I'm a guy!! Been decorating for about 5 years.

The only tip that I think that would be helpful is learn as much as you can from this website!! I love it and I'm addicted to it!! I surf here 7 - 10 times a day.

As for a cake decorating tip I love using a paper towel to smooth out my butter cream. I learned on here to use Viva paper towels but I use them all and most of the time I use one with a design that leaves an impression behind.

I am pretty sure Bobwonderbuns is not a guy. I believe she mentions it on the gourmet flavors thread. She said that most people do think she is a guy. I know I did.

I knew RylanTy was a guy on here. But before I met him on here I met him on Youtube and before I watched his first video I thought he was a she. icon_redface.gif I love the name Rylan though thumbs_up.gif

Hi tonimarie, THANKS for the nice words. I'm just a beginner in cake decorating and I just do it for family and friends as gifts. I just like big cakes so there is more to play with.

Wow a lot of guys are popping up!


My question is.... how many guys in here has a heart of a woman?

Yes, I'm a guy. And I'm addicted to CC. May not post as much as others because I typically don't chime in once someone posts the same reply that I would have...
I'll skip the obvious punch line to your question about additional tools, and just say that in my experience, your best bet it to go ahead and try it/do it! I see a lot of posts asking, "Can I do..." to which I always want to reply, "there are no rules in cake decorating, so just go ahead and do it!" but I don't want to look like a smart a$$.

Sorry, just got a little chuckle out of the last few threads. icon_biggrin.gif I needed a laugh tonight. Thx you two! BTW, I didn't know you were talking about someone being gay either Rylan. I thought you meant a guy baker, and loving it as much as women!
