Yes, well. I thought I'd introduce myself, but I wasn't sure as to where I should. My name is Rebecca and I am 15 years old. Last year, I was introduced to the wonderful world of cake decorating. Though I didn't really get into it until a few months ago. It's become my addiction. I now bake constantly in hopes of being able to frost and decorate a cake.
Though I do have troubles. I'm obviously not going to be the most amazing decorator ever. In fact, I have a lot of trouble smoothing the frosting on the cake. ._. I haven't taken any classes yet, though I'm hoping to as soon as I get back from being an outdoor school councilor.
My latest cake was for one of my friend's 18th birthday's. It wasn't over the top- the decorations were simple. Though I did include a marzipan octopus as a decorations...
Anyways, as soon as I get some new cakes done (which will hopefully be soon) I'll try to post them ^.^ Sorry if they aren't as gorgeous as everyone else's- after all, I'm still learning. Everyone starts at some time, I just happened to start now.

I am almost 40 and just started cake decorating within the last year. This was my time to escape from my teens and husband. I have found it to be my source of enjoyment. Just practice, don't get discouraged and most of all have fun while you decorate!

Don't worry about how your cakes look. We all have to start somewhere. Afterall, I'm sure some of the really great decorators on this site started out with disasters but look at them now.
