Hi All!

I am relatively new to cake decorating and recently completed the level 1 Wilton course (wanted to do level 2, but my schedule would not permit it this month) and now I am madly practicing, but I REALLY want to get into working with fondant and gumpaste.

I am wondering how hard it is to work with either of them and if there are any tips/tricks or pearls of wisdom all of the talented artists here could share to help me get started with as few science experiment gone wrong looking cakes lol. Is there maybe a youtube video or tutorial anyone would suggest etc?

Thanks so much!!!

I've never taken any classes and I've managed fine.

This is the most helpful fondant information I've found: http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm

I like Nicholas Lodge's gumpaste recipe too. It's worth finding some tylose because it's a hundred times better than the Wilton gumpaste.
