Hi. My name is Lori and I just signed up on your site. I went to IMDb to see if anybody was verbally bashing DC Cupcakes as much as I was was in my head. Sure enough! Anyway, somebody on there responded to my post and suggested this site. This is like bakers porn!
I've wanted to take cake decorating for years but just have signed up for my first class a few weeks ago. I start tomorrow and I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve! It's at Michael's and the class is with Wilton. I bought the mac-daddy of their sets because they said that would be everything I needed for all of their courses. I'm supposed to take 6 cookies tomorrow night. I guess that's easier to get started on than a full blown cake LOL. Anyway, I baked sugar cookies today.
I took a cookie decorating class this past Saturday at Campbell's Gourmet Cottage (www.gourmetcottage.com) and had a blast with that. One lady in there said "This class is fun, cake decorating is work". I thought that way funny.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and I wanted to see if anybody had any tips for me as I walk into my first class tomorrow night.
Welcome to cake central! Good luck at your Wilton classes! I took my first Wilton class in 1982!
Hello Lori- I too am new to this site but, enjoying everyones input & work. It's amazing how many talented people there are here!!!
Your comments about the site & classes were hysterical- I also am looking to pick up some classes along my adventure! I took Ck derorating years ago but, developed Carpal Tunnel along the way so-had to give it up for many years. I am fascinated by cupacakes for some reason & am looking for some instructional videos!!! Found several on Utube but, this site would be great if they added some don't you think?
Well...best of luck & looking forward to seeing your wrok...have FUN!!!
