I made a reminder to check this website under cake photos every couple weeks. I'm not sure when they change the photos but they are amazing and I always like to look at them.

Thanks for this!
I can't believe it's only $32 (US) a year to be a member! I think I just might do this!

I joined last month. Although I haven't got the newsletter yet, I can't wait to go to one of the meetings. There is one in Columbus, GA, which is about 45 mins for me icon_lol.gif . Finally, I get to meet some people in person. No offense to you all on the board. I enjoy the board very much. No one I know enjoys cooking and baking the way I do! icon_cry.gif

COOL! Can you give some info on Toba Garrett? I am still trying to learn who everyone is. Of, course I know Collette Peters is.

BTW, Wedding weekend is this weekend on Food Network. Set your VCRS!

Yeah- I joined!

Mchelle Posted 10 Mar 2005 , 3:28pm

OK, now I know who she is. I bought her book. Very good. I'm going to try her recipes in the back (when I get a chance). She has a buttercream recipe and I want to see if it's much different than mine. I'm still having problems with the air bubbles icon_sad.gif . Maybe hers is better.

NOw I should subscribe to it too! I just liked seeing the photos on website but it's good to know the other info.

Hello mOuse, Susan94 , Mchelle and everybody.
When you'll start receiving your monthly news , can you tell us if it's worth 32 $ ? 'Cause i'm from Canada and 32$ is almost 45 $ for me !

And Wow ! The cakes are so beautiful !

I think I got something from them in the mail this week, but I have not had time to look at it. I won't have time until Sunday or Monday, but I will let you know!

I've been a member for awhile now and IMHO it is worth every penny. I read it over and over.....until the next one comes in! Even better than that is the American Cake Decorating and Mailbox News! thumbs_up.gif
