I have taken a few classes to learn basic techniques and I just happened on this site. So much to read and so much has been read!! But I still can't figure some things...

First...how do you learn all the abbreviations used...BCTS had me for awhile and then I saw what it was...now, to find out what it is!

Also...to sculpt a cake, can you purchase blocks or 1" sheets of Rice Treats OR is it a must to make? RKT (I know that abbreviation!) are too expensive!

If I loaded the pic correctly on my profile, that cake is my goal and not my creation. It is what my son wants for his groom's cake. I'm a planner, he's getting married in September, so I have some time to practice!

Any help, link or source would be appreciated.

The only question I can help with is the first one. To find out what an abbreviation means, roll your mouse over it and the definition will pop up. HTH!

Hi jerseygirlNga,

I went to your profile, but I didn't see the cake picture. It looked like you had tried to set a picture as your avatar, but that link seems to be broken. It also says that you don't have any user photos. I think that you want to click on "my photos" on the left-hand side of your screen, then at the top click "upload picture" and follow the instructions from there.

Apologies if I just missed it somehow.
