Am new and wanted to introduce myself since I have found this site to be pretty informative and will be sticking around for a while.
Just a few things about myself. I love cooking. I especially love eating what I cook. About a year and a half ago I lost my job and became a stay-at-home dad. I would cook everyday for my wife and send her food for lunch and if they had parties at the office. One of her co-workers requested a cake for a birthday party, so it began. Turning something I love doing into something I love to do and get paid for it. So with the holidays coming up, am working up getting some more work from co-workers, friends, family, etc..
I am going through the site now, looking over things. Any practical advice or tips would be appreciated.
Welcome Chapetta You will find alot of useful information here. Enjoy !
Hi and Welcome to CC Chapetta.
Everything you need to know to make, decorate and assemble tiered/stacked/layer cakes:
The above super thread has popular CC recipes for American buttercreams, several types of fondant and doctored cake mix (WASC with flavor variations) - and so much more!

Welcome to the fun! This is an amazing community...hope you enjoy your time here!
Welcome! Have fun.
I am new as well and I would suggest atleast taking the Wilton's classes offered through local craft stores like Michaels. I really wanted to learn how to work with fondnat and was a little put off that I had to take the buttercream class first, but you learn a ton of tricks and techniques I never would have been able to figure out on my own. Good luck.
