Hi, I new to the forum. I actually just stumbled in, but I'm glad that I did. icon_biggrin.gif Wow! Lots of very talented people on here. I'm sure that I will be picking up lots of great tips....and hopefully one day return the favor.

I'm not a professional, just a stay at home mom that got bored (all kids in school now). I took the Wilton Course I class a few years ago and was a bit dissapointed in it. I have signed up for the Wilton Course II, the class starts on Sept 7th. I am excited about it. I have a hard time making flowers... icon_redface.gif

Anyway, I've made a few cakes for family and friends. I don't charge for my cakes yet because I don't think that I'm good enough yet. I make the cakes as gifts. Maybe later when I feel that I've improved I'll start charging...I'll post a few pics later on.

Hello & welcome!! This site is the best! I also took my first course years ago & started the courses all over again last year. It has been an exciting year!! I have learned so much from my classes & just trial & error. I am a stay at home Mom of 3 (ages 13, 11, & 4) but I have managed to have my own business with the help of a wonderful & supportive husband. It is great. Good luck on your new adventure & keep posting!! thumbs_up.gif

By the way, you cakes are awesome. They look professional to me. icon_biggrin.gif

I checked out your cakes and YOU ROCK!!! I LOVE the belly cake! I'm going to attempt to make one for a friend when I get home. I'm over in Iraq and I spend most of my nights on here getting tips and picking up ideas and recipes to use when I get home. You'll LOVE it here. We're glad to have you!!!

Welcome to a wonderful site, can't say enough about the people on here.

I'm fairly new here too and everyone is super helpful and they're right it is addictive.

When my hubby looks over and sees me on my laptop, he asks "Are you looking at cake porn again?" icon_lol.gif

Welcome! I've been a member for a relatively short amount of time and am extremely addicted. This site is priceless as an interactive resource for all things cake, cupcake, and cookie. You'll see it referred to as Crack Central because it is SO addictive. My husband constantly ribs me about the amount of time I spend here. And just recently he has given me a new nickname, "Cracky".

But that's OK, he hasn't turned down a cake or cookie, yet!

Your cakes are great and you will find that the forum posts and pictures here will inspire you to push yourself to learn new skills and try new things.

Thanks!!! You peeps are so wonderful!!! CC is a very friendly place and it's great that everyone loves to share ideas... I can't wait till I can share some wonderful recipes or cake ideas with ya'll.

I had no idea about a baby belly cake until I entered this wonderful place. The ideas and talents here are out of this world. Thanks for letting me be a part of it!!!
