Free Online Cake Decorating Book

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I came across this yesterday. It's an 80pp cake decorating book put out by 4-H and Wilton. The first few pages are 4-H stuff but after that is a guide to decorating. I haven't read the whole thing yet but what I did read was great. It talks about getting bubbles out of icing (i've seen that topic a lot) and the section on writing on cakes is great. I thought I'd share the link in case anyone else was interested in it icon_smile.gif

all you have to do is highlight the www. address in the window, right click on the address, hit copy and then you are ready to put it wherever you need it... like say here... to do that you would right click and hit paste.... it will do it for ya....

Thanks, Flavy, I'll give it a try. Sounds easy, but we will see!

Lisa, I went all the way through the 4H Cake Decorating Book, and it really is very good. It is about as thorough as you could hope to find, and not just basics. I didn't print it, but did save the pdf file so I can read it again later. Thanks for the link. Janice

Thanks so much for the link. I saved it to my favorites until I get more printer paper. That way I can compile the book into an easy to read one to keep on hand. There were alot of interesting techniques in it. I will have some fun trying them out!
Hoping to one day have a shop of my own!

Janice...you can do like flayv said to post a regular link. It will highlight/become a link as soon as you submit the post. If you want to test it first, just hit preview then you can make sure it works.

If you want to get into more advanced links, you can visit this page.

It will show you how to create hyperlinks like the ones in my signature or even turn pics/images into links.
