I would just like to introduce myself- my name is Jodi. I am from Kansas and the proud, protective mother of a 1 year old. I also have several animals and have a rather demanding job, and then there is my husband. Wonderful man... but still a man icon_wink.gif.

I have often thought of getting into "cakes", but have finally taken the initiative to do so. I decorated my first cake for my portfolio for my son's first birthday. I have already learned so much from this site and I know I have just scratched this site's surface. I must say this site is quite impressive. I hope to have a successful side gig, and perhaps more in the future.

I look forward to the many, many hours I will spend on this site.

BTW- Happy New Year!!!

Welcome Jodi! As you probably have already figured out, this site is highly addictive! If I'm not baking/decorating a cake, I'm on here reading all the information that I can. So very much to learn but loving every minute of it! ......alene

Welcome Jodi! And you are right, this is the best site for all things cake! I had been making cakes for about 25 years when I found this site. At that point, I was pretty full of myself and thought I knew pretty much all there was about caking.

I came across the FBCT article, which led me to CC, and I discovered that I didn't know ANYTHING about cakes, compared to the folks on here! icon_redface.gif I"ve learned more since joining CC than I did in 25 years of hands on caking.

Be prepared for the addiction that WILL hook you! thumbs_up.gif

Welcome! You will find, as many have stated, you will spend way too much time on this site. But it is well worth it.
