Introduction

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I wasn't sure if I needed to do an intro or not and didn't know where to put one if I did so I thought I'd post here. I'm from Alberta Canada and I've been making cakes for about 6 years or so now. I just decided to try my hand at making them from home to sell to people. I was just making them for my son. I use to work at a specialty cake store but quit there after I had my son.

I've been reading a little bit on the board and have found some great ideas from you guys. I just recently bought a box of Wilton Buttercream icing to try out (I usually make my own but find it tends to stain the cake board so I thought I'd try something new) and then I read that you guys didn't think it was very good tasting. I'm hoping it'll taste okay but if not, I guess I go back to my recipe.

I look forward to posting some cake idea with all of you and getting some great info icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the welcome everyone. At the bakery I use to work at, their board never stained...even when I used my recipe on it so I don't know if it was the type of cake board they had there or what but the boards I bought from a crafting store suck. They leave huge oil stains on them. I totally agree about making the icing is way cheaper than to buy. The recipe I have is just the basic buttercream icing. I think I've seen it posted on here.

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp of clear vanilla
3 - 4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tbs of milk

I'm so excited to be a member here. I get to chat with others about my most favorite thing to do icon_biggrin.gif

Lol, that one is hilarious. I haven't seen their shows in ages. I'd like to watch them again. I've heard there's a movie coming out. I can't wait to see it.
