Hi Laura,

Welcome to the world of addicts.........
I am also not a newbie, been decorating for about 2yrs now and all that I have learnt, I have learnt from reading the forums and taking advice from others that have problems.
There is a world of information here on CC, you just have to keep logging in the check what is going on.

Hope you enjoy your new world of decorating!!

Hi my name is Lisa. I am a newbie and a.... a .... Cake Central addict. It has been 3 months since I logged on and I have to have a fix every few hours. My favorites online log is the one suffering the most. Although my printer is coming up quickly in the second place. It feels so used and I can't blame it! icon_lol.gif

AND I am from Texas!!

Think I can blame it on that? icon_eek.gif

Nahhhhh...... it is just too yummy!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Welcome!! I still consider myself a newbie even though I've been baking for 35 years and caking for 12. There are always such great ideas here and techniques to learn that I will always call myself newbie. It's a hobby and a passion for me. Caking is MY playtime. Enjoy it, it's fun!!

Hi Laura, my name is Susie, I'm a newbie too, just finished up my Wilton courses about a month ago. Wish I could take more classes! I want to learn so much more! I've learned a lot from Cake Central, it's the best on the WWW and I've become slightly addictive! LOL

Hi Laura-

I am really new to cake decorating, too. I am from Florida, but am stationed in the Netherlands. I would LOVE to take some classes to learn better techniques, but that's not going to happen while I am overseas. I am teaching myself with the Wilton DVD's and this site. I am so thankful for cc. I am so inspired by everyone here. I have learned so much in the past couple of months! I now need to find more reasons to make cakes so I can get more practice!

Thanks for posting this. I have never responded to a forum because I don't feel like I know enough to answer any questions!!!

Good luck to you-

Thanks so much to all of you who responded, both newbies and not so newbies.....It sure made me feel much more welcomed.

Oh I hear you Heidi (hsterling), with everybody knowing so much, and wanting to be able to post something, anything, but not knowing what since I am not expertise in many things regarding cake decorating. Finally got the courage to post this......I figured someone has to feel like me.LOL.

Good luck with the DVD videos.

Kala, wow, I can't believe you are from EP too. We have 2 things in common so far...haha Cool! hope to hear from you more.

Susie53 how many classes have you taken? I have only taken the 1st one, and hoping to take 2,3 and 4....but I got to save some money first.LOL

Angelatx I know what you mean about a wealth of information, I mean If it weren't for CC, a lot of us would not even know a fourth of all the great information and help on baking and decorating.....great fortune for all new people here and twice as much for all those helping and sharing.

Carol (cakelady31), imakecakes, fidos_mom, aunticake, thanks so much for your response and for welcomeing me into CC, I love all the information, and inspiration and yes I agree it sure is ADDICTING!

Charmaine49 your cakes are beautiful, hope to learn a few pointers from you.

AGAIN Thanks so much, happy viewing, learning and chatting at CakeCentral......

Hello & Welcome All Newbies!

I am not a newbie, I am up working on a cake and just wanted to say hello and welcome to CC. You can learn a lot here and everyone has been very giving of tips, ideas, recipes and so much more!

I had not done a cake in over 25 years, till I came to this site...I had never touch fondant till I join (going on 2 years ago) CC. This site and all the wonderful decorators gave me the ("go for it") and try working with things I hadn't done before. I am still learning things everytime I come to the site. You will love it here with all the things you can learn.

Good Luck & God Bless,
