Allways Julez

Hi, I am Julez, a 50 yr old mum. I started work as a basic, commercial style decorator in 1980, but I no longer work in the industry.
This year I have concentrated on making cakes for friends and family, updating my skills and trying to find my own “style”. I have tried to build a body of work that I can be proud of, and a record of my ability.
I love COLOUR, clean lines, designs that are asymmetrical yet balanced.
I am relatively new to the technological age… but am slowly getting drug into it!!!
It has been wonderful to feel welcome in the global caking community!!!
Decorating as a hobbyist, with my own ideas has re-ignited my passion for cakes. It has been far more rewarding than completing basic, commercial orders! ♥

So, tomorrow morning hubby and I leave for a 2 month trip throughout the states of Tasmania and Victoria in Australia. During this time, I will have reduced access to internet connections… so I do not expect that I will be accessing CakesDecor...

Yea! I see you signed up! Now you need to start posting some of your gorgeous creations! Once you get the hang of navigating around this site, you will love how warm and friendly everyone is!

Allways Julez ...

Yay!!!! The worst part about signing up for something new…. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS!!! LOL
I posted a cake 2-3 hours ago, but they must be still assessing my pic…
It’s taken me a couple of hours to figure out, I can add things to a “favourites” list…
Thank you, Toni, for your encouragement, support & help. XXX

That’s strange, I don’t remember how it was when I first signed up, but it shouldn’t take long for your picture to show up. When I post one, it shows up instantly. Maybe try re-posting it, or post another one. It will take a little while, but you will get the hang of it here. You will find a lot of people you follow on Facebook on here. When you follow someone on here, you will get an email notice when they add a new cake. I’m off to bed, hope to see some of your lovely cakes on here in the morning!

Awww Bev, your so sweet.
Look… I am pretty much an open book… a lot of stuff is self-taught due to my commercial decorating background. I was regularly “thrown in the deep end” with an order… with no time for research or lessons.
“Back in the day”, there was no internet, so you just had to figure stuff out yourself.
I did a tech college course back in 1980 (yeah…. I know, that makes me “mature age”, hell… OLD!!! LOL).
No cutters, texture mats, airbrush… or any other really cool stuff, available now!
I don’t come from an affluent background, and I have health and other issues that seriously restrict my budget… so I am a self-confessed “Queen of Cheap”!
Anything you want help on, JUST ASK… I’ll help if I can. Just be warned… it might not be the technically correct way of experts. I can only share, what I know.
