I started out with the Cake Decorating classes from Michaels, they were very helpful. From there you just start making cakes for anyone for the practice. The girls in our office really liked it when I was taking classes cause they got to reap the benefit each week.

Cake decorating was a hobby for my mother, so I grew up around it. I've taken the Wilton classes with Michael's and have learned A LOT from here & YouTube videos.

Oh yes! Youtube is definitely a must have. That Tonedna and her videos taught me so much.

Self-taught, although like KHalstead, I've learned so much from CC. It all began for me when my mom threw a baby shower for my aunt when I was 17. I volunteered to make the cake so I went to a local bookstore and bought a cake decorating book. That was 16 years ago, long before I'd ever heard of the internet.

My dear, sweet, late mother-in-law Harla (hence the user name Thanksharla) bought me a wilton class and the supplies for Class 1 for my birthday last year. My birthday is in April but didn't have the chance to take the class til the end of July/ August and have been hook ever since.

Before she past away she told my father-in-law to make sure I get all her cake decorating tools. She used to make and sell wedding cakes.
