Hey everyone, I'm Nick and I'm a firefighter from Virginia. I'm trying to learn how to decorate cakes and would just like some feedback. It's tough to get constructive criticism from other firefighters about cake decorating! Lol. I created a Instagram if anyone can help. @cakesbynick

Thanks everyone!

Is your account the one with the Pocahontas cake on it? I'm from Richmond and everyone here is related to Pocahontas...

Good luck Nick! Have you watched instructions on YouTube? They're very helpful.

You Tube videos will help tremendously and practicing over and over. I don't care for fondant and all my cakes are either buttercream or stabilized whip cream icing cakes.  It is great to see a firefighter who loves to decorate cakes. Gotta warn you though, decorating will get into your blood!! I think there is something in the water!! ha ha!! You will be decorating like a pro in no time!!! Keep on caking!!!

Greetings cakesbynick! Post your cakes in the "Friday Night Cake Club" posted every week by catlharper.  Everyone there is very encouraging.  If you want constructive criticism on a particular cake, post and ask, that would be a very nice place to start.  Cake Central is an amazing place where you will see the best in the world show their best.  It can be very intimidating but all of us strive to get better.  Hope to see your work soon!
