Hello everyone and anyone!

As the title says, I'm a newbie. Just signed up. So, I thought I'd say "Hi".


My name is Amanda but Panda is fine. I'm not only a newbie to this site but also fairly newbie to baking and completely newbie to cake decorating. But I've always thought that it looked like creative fun and so I've decided to give it a try!

Any tips/suggestions are GREATLY appreciated. Like... even a website with the basics would be great. icon_biggrin.gif

Hope to see you all around!

Hey Panda...Rylan has a sticky under the cake decorating forum that has tons of
how to, you tube video from crumb coating your cake and decorating to making flowers. You just click on the link you are interested in and it will pull up the video. It is so full of wonderful information for all us newbies!

Welcome to Cake Central. The experienced cake decorators on this site are wonderful about sharing their personal cake decorating information and helping out those of us with no experience. But, trust truely is addictive. I never cease to be amazed at the beautiful cakes posted on here. Truely art!
