Hi Liverpool,


Welcome to the forums and to cake making/decorating in general!


This forum is filled with newbies and VERY experienced bakers/decorators who have fabulous ideas, helpful hints and very nice people when you really need the help.


I myself may show as a newbie because I don't post very often, but have learned much from the kind people here when I'm just lurking about.


I live in the US so not sure where you could find tissue paper there….but you could try globalsugarart.com which has fantastic decorating supplies of all kinds.  But I'm sure there are plenty others on the forums that are from the UK that could help you even more.  Just wait…..they're out there…..



Have a great day!

AThank you. The pricing guide helps a little but I've just been trying to research local prices to try and keep in line with those. I have a guideline to use also to ensure I cover the cost of ingredients and time taken to make the cake(s) etc...

liverpool, I'm not in the UK, but I just wanted to say Welcome.  You can really learn a great deal from Cake Central.
