That's coolicon_smile.gif I'm a newbie too and have spent the money I got at Christmas on cake stuff. I hope you love the lessons. Doesn't the gallery just make you want to make cake? I'm quite obsessed with pic of cake. Are you from Oz?
Keep us updatedicon_smile.gif

I'm from across the ditch. Do you have a 'kit' class, or a real, live, in person class?

thanks and yes, born and bred sydney gal.

and the course im attending is for 8 weeks with a real live person and i think there is only 8 people per class (already fully booked) so im looking forward to it. the course covers the basics plus filler flower and piping/embroidery

my course also includes a beginners kit but dont know whats in it yet as i get that at class #1
