Hi Cajah,

I'm new, too, so I don't know much about everything. However, I have spent some time looking at the different parts of this board, and all the questions you asked have been answered in quite a few previous posts or articles/recipes. (I myself was wondering about many of those things.)

Try looking under Articles, for lots of "How To" and recommendations. Also, try the Search function. All this, for no charge!

Welcome to the cake board!

Well, first you need to find out what kind of cake flavors they want,
icing they want, buttercream or fondant,
fillings to compliment the cake
how many ppl they will be feeding,
do they want the cake stacked or pillar style
is the cake going to be round, square, or some other shape?

Once you know all of that then you'll have a starting point
