How long been decorating????? - Page 2

post #16 of 96
28 years for family and friends. Took First Wilton course at 17, second Wilton course in 1998. Seriously decorating for the last 8 years. My first wedding cake was for my first marriage in 1985--let's just say the top in the freezer lasted longer than the marriage icon_biggrin.gif .

Anyway, I learn something new everyday.....It's an on going learning experience!

I agree with Sherry, it is a continous learning process. I fell in love with baking when I was in high school when I took baking as an elective. But it took me 6 years before I made my very first cake. It was not the great tasting - perfect cake but I was happy. From then on I practiced and make cakes for my family and close friends as gifts. I was very glad I found cake central it teaches me a lot! The people also are very nice and is always willing to help. I want to get better too.

I first started making cakes when we couldn't find anyone local to make our wedding cake in 2002. I decided rather than pay for one from KC, I'd use the money to buy supplies and take the Wilton classes. Our wedding cake was pretty homemade looking, but tasted good and started me on this obsession! I am still learning and still need to work on my basics, like borders and flowers, but I enjoy it.

I took my wilton course I class just about a year ago, and finished course III this past Dec. I don't get a chance very often to experiment with alot of different stuff though, mostly everyone I know just wants a plain ole buttercream sheet cake of some size. But I LOVE decorating!! I really hope I can become as good as some of the others are on this site someday!! icon_biggrin.gif

I started the wilton classes last spring. I haven't taken 3 yet because there were never enough people signed up LOL. I haven't done too many cakes maybe between 10-15. I wanted to get into it because I have 4 kids and my oldest just turned 8 so I've got lots of birthdays to do! I just took wilton 1 and 2 again with a friend and now that school's out I've got the bug to try more. I've got to get all my pics loaded up here too.
