Start by takine a good decorating class. See if there are any Wilton classes offered in your area.

Well first of all...WELCOME!

And I agree with Suzies_Sweats-n-Treats.

Find out if you have any classes in your area.

I'm on the third class right now and it's awesome! You really learn a lot.

You can also go to youtube and find a lot of videos there that will teach you the basics. That's how I first started!

Good luck in everything you do!!! icon_biggrin.gif

They're right! I'm fairly new to decorating also. I was so excited about starting my first Wilton course. By the time it started, I had already watched YouTube videos and read forums on everthing we were supposed to learn! There are so many resources out there!

Good Luck and WELCOME to CC!

The wilton's courses are where many people start but check out other possibilities. Your park system may offer courses, that's where I started. Or if you have a cake supply shop in the area they may offer classes or know of where there are non- wilton classes. My objection to wilton classes is the peddling of stuff you don't need or want. Some of their instructors are excellent and others...not so.

You could also go to your local library and read up on cake decorating or buy a few books. I bought a bunch of books at like yard sales and from my library as well. This way you can go back to them whenever you need to. icon_biggrin.gif
