Hello everyone.
I am so new that I don't even know where to start. Literally. icon_sad.gif I am from Maine and have been seaching every where for just a simple start up class. I have had no luck at all. Anyone from Maine (or NH/MA) here to advise me on this?
Also, I love baking and I want to get into making wedding cakes.
If anyone has time to give me a few tips on how to get started, I would be grateful. What are the must-haves? Good books? Websites? Etc
I am very eager to hear from you.
Thank you so much!

Have you tried A C Moore and michaels? they ususally have wilton classes. you can go to wilton . com and look for the classes in your area.
You can also get cake decorating books from library that is good start.

Also, if you can swing it, Sharon Zambito's videos are awesome. She is on this site, but you can find them by searching SugarEd productions. Her buttercream and fondant DVDs are great - worth every cent. She shows you every step - no "editing" - how to fix mistakes, etc. She is a really good teacher.

I'd suggest taking the Wilton Cake Decorating courses. They were excellent!
