I have been bad about not checking this forum more often. Lots of new members and may I say "Welcome" to each of you?

Hi my name is Grace Fischer. I am from a little town in Florida. I think this is a wonderful web site but unfortunately I don't know how to use it. If anyone can give me any tips I would greatly appreciate it.
Hey ya Grace I am still having probs with the site.. and i have been a member for a while.. still don't quite understand the workings of it. I suppose I would if I spent more time on here. :)
Hi Penny, welcome to the forum. Don't be hard on yourself, it will come to you as you go along. Lots to learn yes, but lots of people here who are willing to help, share or answer a question. Being patient isn't one of my qualities either, I am kind of a "I want to see the finished product now!" But after having many cakes or techniques not turn out as planned because I rushed it I have finally learned to take it one step at a time. That isn't easy to do when you have two little ones. You will find as many of us have that decorating at night when they are asleep is easier. Take pictures, even if you aren't happy with the results, you will be amazed at your progress with each cake.
And Grace if I haven't said so before, welcome! Glad that Isaac kind of skirted around Florida and hope all is well in your area.
Hi, my name is Susan,
I joined a few days ago. I don't have a business, I am just a home baker who loves making cakes and want's to expand my knowledge.
I am baking a cake for my mothers 80th birthday soon and it will be first time I will be attempting sugar gum paste flowers and decorations. I have been watching loads of video's on YouTube regarding this and found them to be very helpful.
What I could use some advice on is when to actually make the cake, when to make the gum paste decorations etc etc. Her birthday is October 6th.
Any advice from you experienced ladies would be much appreciated .

Hello, my name is Sylvia Moya, I joined this week. I live in Texas. I was looking through google about cake designs and came across this website. I have been baking cakes mostly for family for 40 years and trying to keep up with the new techniques. I love to challenge myself on what I feel is impossible to do. I have not charged for a cake in years, never knew exactly what was the appropriate amount to charge and still don't! I love looking at all the different cake designs on here =) Looking forward to learning new things!
HI ALL NEW COMERS! WELCOME TO THE BEST SITE YOU WILL EVER KNOW , AWESOME PEP'S HERE , ENJOY KEEP ON CAKING ; ) I BEEN HERE SINCE LAST YR ! AND LEARNED SO MUCH FROM ALL MY FRIEND S HERE ; )
Hi I am 54 years old. I live in Charleston SC. I enjoy doing cakes as a hobby just for family and close friends and especially the children. I have not taken cake decorating classes. After looking on You tube I got hooked on cakes so I just researched and looked at a lot of videos. I have never attempted to do royal icing or fondant. I have only stuck with butter cream. One day I may get brave enough to try some other things.
I just wanted to thank all of you for all the information that I am reading and learning on this forum. Much to read and much to learn!!! I have really enjoyed looking at the cake pictures also. I can see there are many talented and artistic people here. I am glad that I found this forum!!!!
