2nd rate caker :-)

Forum: Introduce Yourself

Good evening, everyone ! My name is Genete; I live in the United Kingdom. I am new to this site – after stumbling across it I just had to join. The cakes I have seen on here are awesome.

I am self taught. Have been playing around with all kinds of icings/fondants etc since I was 16 yrs old – a few decades on, I am still at it. Here is one of my cakes I made for my daughter’s 40th birthday, it’s a bit rough around the edges but that’s OK because I only make them for family and friends; I hope you like it….

IT SURE IS THE BEST CAKE SITE EVER !!!!! And as you can tell – i want to shout it out loud across the world :-). hoping to learn a lot from this site with all the amazing what appears to be professional cake makers on here…
I am currently in the middle of doing a further three birthday cakes; two of which is for this Saturday; for my grandchildren.eeeeeeeek my kitchen is clouded with icing dust even though I have a shield on my kitchenaid and placing a cloth over the top when slowly mixing – there’s just no escaping it haha

Ps: will post the cake picks when cakes are finished with all it’s unashamedly faults :-) but i do enjoy it

Welcome Genete and I would not call you a “2nd rate caker” Your daughters cake is very sweet and I am sure she loved it. The nice thing about Cakes Decor is there are all levels of decorators and I have never once heard anyone with years of experience put down someone who is a beginner. We all learn at different speeds, some have natural born talents, some of us have taken many classes. But the nice thing is I have found if you have a question there will always be someone here who can answer it for you and are willing to share.

Hi Genete! No need to be apologetic about your work, your daughter’s cake is adorable! Self-taught here, too and the folks in this group are so helpful and supportive. Welcome and enjoy!
