I belong to the New Zealand cake decorating Guild, our branch meet once a month.

Our club decided ( a while ago) to 'take turns' in presenting a hints and tips session..Well, can you guess who's turn it is this month?? ME!!!

To be honest, I am the youngest member in the club (42!!) and I learn alot from other people and am pretty stumped to what I can show these old timers!! 

Has any one got ANY really good hints or tips that I can show them or tell them...I won't tell them I cheated!!


Thanks in advance..

I have no idea what you skill level is...Our their's.  Just because you are the youngest doesn't mean you can't teach and old dog new tricks! If you feel there is nothing you could show them, maybe look for a new decorating technique, teach it yourself and tell them about the problems you stumbled across while doing so and how you tackled them. For example http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/d9/3e/03/d93e039616042d22f87ed97978074f93.jpg or https://www.pinterest.com/pin/391672498818678495/ or whatever caught your eye recently. .. Otherwise you could maybe shift away from the actual making of cakes and show them tips and tricks how to photograph cakes best or teach them about social media networking to promote a cake business if you are good at that. 

I'm sure this club is not there to make a contest out of those presentations but to support each other. Don't stress to much over it. Whatever you are confident with might be best to show. Just something seems easy for you doesn't mean it's not worth showing. Best of luck!
