Yes..it is fun but alot of work also...Maybe you could sign up for some local classes at Michael's craftstore or Joann's Craftstore to help you get started.

Welcome to CC!!

I second what KiddieKakes says. There is nothing like getting some structured guidance. If you have never decorated cakes before, I would suggest starting with the 1st level course. Once you finish that one, you can just move on up to the fondant course. Good Luck and have fun!

I agree as well. I would take some classes at Michaels or Hobby Lobby etc to get started. I like taking classes and learning new techniques. Reading on here is a great learning tool.

Getting all the pans, tips, bags, boards, cutters, etc can run into money. You can build your stock over time.
