Monthly Challenge

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Well, after reading posts, and getting emails, I have come to a conclusion that there are other people on cakecentral that need an extra boost on decorating.....me for one. I planted a seed that gave us more of a reason to decorate/practice. I first suggested a weekly challenge that anyone interested in doing this make a cake, batch of cookies etc, a week and post it somewhere and then we could vote on which one is the best, but it was waistlines that came into thought, so thats how we came up with monthly.
So could we do a monthly challenge? If you want to do a contest like the holiday one in the past that could be the special theme one for that month.
This isnt to make cakes go up against another, just to get up practicing, and being accountable for it. Once a month challenge thats it, whatcha think?

For those of you that want to pratice and dont want to make a cake you can get some foam dummys from the cake supplie stores they are a bit pricey or you can go to your craft store and just get reg foam and you can put your icing on there and then do your decorating and then when your done looking at it you run it under hot water and the icing melts off and let the foam dry and start all over again.. This way your not eating cake ever week.. I know some of you said something about the hip line... LOL ..

BUT OK I 5th the count... LOL

How about a basic Spring theme?

I apologize if this has already been decided and I haven't seen it!

missyb.....the way Jackie put it, she would do different levels.... you can put your cakes in beginner, or intermediate whatever you feel you work in? Speaking of that.....
JACKIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how would you pick what you are? I mean I may have been doing this for a while, but I feel I'm at a high beginner-low intermediate......
Also, since Jackie said she was working on this.... I guess we start when she says go or what????? I second the spring theme, but I am up to almost anything!
