Welcome! There are a lot of really talented people on this site who are willing to help by sharing information, recipes and techniques. You'll learn a lot from these people. I've only been decorating cakes for a year now and am a hobby baker who still has a lot to learn, and the sharing on this site is really worth it's weight in gold! Hope to see you here often.

Hi everyone,
My name is Cassandra, and I am new to this site, but am already addicted! I bake cookies, teacakes, and regular cakes on the side, but I am ready to start decorating cakes also.

Hi, to all of you and welcome to the site. I love to come here everyday and read what others has to say and also give my opinions also. I tell everyone , i know a lot, but i don,t know everything.Sometimes i learn something new from a new decorator. Thats a good thing. So, don,t mind voicing your opinions and asking questions. I do both. Welcome again.

I am also new to cake decorating. I took 3 Wilton classes with my son, made for interesting Mother/Son bonding,but didn't do much with decorating afterwards. I am a frequent visitor to this site; the cakes are fabulous and the recipes are yummy. I recently decided to get away from my computer and try my hand at some of these amazing confections. Just recently posted my attempt at a petal cake, not too awful for a newbie.

Wow - - beautiful cake! I think you'll do great things. icon_smile.gif

Welcome newbies! This is a great place to ask questions and learn. And Swishykitty, you are off to a great start! Your cake is better than some I've seen for sale in bakeries!

swishykitty Posted 23 Nov 2011 , 2:09am

jgifford and heartsnsync, you are both too kind. I am so humbled and inspired by the talent I see here on CC!!

Like a few other posts in here I am also a newbie. Love this site and haven't stopped reading since I joined. I have been decorating for about 2 years and just love the information on this site.
Checked out some of the "newbie" photos and your cakes are great! I will have to add some of mine to my profile

carmijok Posted 23 Nov 2011 , 2:56am

Lots of newbie talent out there! I've been here a little while and have learned so much. I am self taught and a hobbyist. You'll learn a lot. Don't be afraid to ask for honest critiques...I think that's the best way to learn. I love seeing all the talent on here from some of the finest decorators I've ever seen. You get great ideas for techniques and style. Enjoy your new addiction!

BeccaW40 Posted 23 Nov 2011 , 3:35pm

Thank you everyone....I am self taught as well, and wow has it been an adventure...when i first started, I was actually using an antique hand mixer to make my buttercream...my biceps looked awesome. I have so many questions I just don't know where to start!!! icon_cry.gif
