If you don’t mind me asking, I’d love to hear how some of you became interested in cake/cupcake decorating and how you got started.
As for me, I was in 4H for 1 year when I was probably about 14. That year I took a cake decorating class, which was more just them explaining to us what the did there at the bakery that we visited. They did show us how to do some of the basics: cover a cake in butter cream, filling and using a bag & tip, make a shell border, and that’s about it. But that peeked my interest. I did some cakes after that and then life got busy, as it does as you start to grow up. I didn’t touch a cake decorating tool for probably 7 years, and then one day a friend of mine reminded me of how fun it was. She introduced me to fondant and I haven’t looked back. I have checked out every book at my library on cake decorating at least twice and have looked at and watched lots of tutorials in the last few years. I love trying out new things and even though it never seems to come out right the first time, I love seeing the progress I can make if I just keep at it.
So, how about you?
