A Beginners Story- This has been my experiences over the last couple of months As a newbie/beginner I thought I would share my experiences for all other newbies-you may pick something up- and maybe for some others you may get a chuckle out of my inexperience- Everything listed was learned by NOT doing it the right way- Just learning all this as I go. So, let me begin by saying that EVERYTHING takes 3x longer then you think it will and it seems I use 3x the amount of product I think I w...

My cakey friends, here’s a video tutorial on how I made the big ruffle flower on the above cake. Just a heads up, I used 50/50 gum paste and fondant mixture on all the ruffle flowers shown in this video.

I had to share this with you all as in over the moon. Cake masters ezine published my guest column, I feel so happy right now. I know the ezine has lots if fab cake decorators in but for them to put a just starting out little old me in is fab.

I got a cake order coming up that im extremely nervous about. Its for a 3 tier cake to feed about 90 people. She told all her guests coming its going to be the best cake they ever had! OMG im freaking out…ive never had a complaint or anything about my cakes but that just puts so much pressure on me and makes me doubt myself. Now i feel like ive been set up for greatness or failure and not knowing what to do if she doesn’t like the cake. :/
