|My very first star tip cake.|
One year, after hounding her for some lessons she expressed how easy it was with a simple star tip and character pan. After about an hour in Michael's I returned with several star tips, some disposable piping bags and my first character pan......mmmmm those were the days. I was approached by a Michael's sales associated and notified about their cake decorating class but politely declined...... $$$$$$$$.
First things first, if you're concerned with learning how to decorate stick with a simple box cake mix. I have always made my own buttercream icing, it holds up to decorating much better than store brands. There are tons of websites with information (Cake Central was one of my faves) , You Tube tutorials, and forums on everything you need to know to take a spin at cake decorating.
cupcakedlights.blogspot.co is my personal favorite and she gives me so much inspiration all the way from South Africa!!! LLLLLLOve her cupcakes and cakes!!!

Man I remember the day I discovered the world of fondant flowers, I went LOCO! I had flowers dried and stored for months. This too is like playing with Play Dough. Initially I purchased the Wilton brand fondant to experiment with, it was great to decorate just tasted like chalk. So I found a recipe for Marsh Mallow Fondant on Cake Central and have been using that recipe every since!!! I included a mini tutorial for Fondant Flowers here.
