Yes, check out YouTube. There are hundreds of videos to help you learn.
The idea of attending classes - yes, even Wilton, is they give you a good hands-on start from which one can build.
I remember some 40+ yrs ago when I wanted to get into decorating I had a dried b'cream rose and some books given to me but it made NO sense at all. Not until some 10 yrs later when I was able to attned classes did any of what I read begin to be understood.

Check out youtube and the sites everyone mentioned.

Also, check out a couple books from the library, used book source, or ebay. Start at the beginning of the book, with a bag of icing, some waxed paper and do some trial and error. There are some awesome text books out there that actually explain enough technique to understand how to reproduce it in your kitchen!

Have Fun!

Global Sugar Art is a great supplier, but there are other great suppliers as well, and when suppliers who are not banned are mentioned, those posts are left intact.

RE: PMs

We do not manually edit your PMs, the entire website has the banned site names in the replace database. Just like cursing. It is an automated process, we have no idea who tries to PM those site names or when.

Well, I, am thankful that you explained things Jan, but I never saw any writing by Heath about this. Was this on another spot in CC or what? I am sure that if someone from YA spammed CC it was by accident and not intentional. I found out about them because of you, CC. But it is very frustrating to be trying to tell someone about a site that would help them and then have it blocked out. It does come across as very unprofessional to me. To me it is like not being able to rise above a misunderstanding or possibly a accidental situation which we all know happens with computers all the time. There is no site that is perfect all the time because of Computer glitches and so forth. I have had my fair share of problems with CC myself, but I do not stop using it.

The quoted text was by Heath, with a link to the thread it came from. icon_smile.gif

If you'd like further clarification, you'd have to pm Heath directly.
