I'm self taught for the most part. I did take one class at St Clair college many years ago to see if i had missed anything. I did learn a few things that made my decorating better, so it wasn't a total waste. But the bulk of my learning is from sites like this and practise. I've been making cakes etc.. for around 10+yrs, mostly for friends and family. I have been seriously considering selling my stuff out of the home and am starting to get costs figured out etc..It's alot of work. I never really intended on selling my cakes but soooo many people ask me if i will do their cakes etc..that i feel maybe i should take the jump. I called the township and health unit and am getting mixed messages if it is legal to do so. One inspector says go ahead we won't come into your home, the other says it's not allowed. I am also an RN but am not practising at the moment. Not sure i want to go back to it. I love doing cakes and can totally see myself doing this for a living. I've thought of applying to a cake shop or something but there isn't alot around here and i really like the idea of making my own hours.
This website is great for learning and ideas. I'm so adddicted to it. It's funny to find people so close to home on here. I thought i was the only one around that made cakes and cookies. I've yet to find anyone i know that does this around me..so it's really cool to have met you. I wish there was some sort of cake club around to talk cakes and share our work.
I look forward to talking to you some more.
I'll pm my email address so that we can communicate easier.
Take care. Gotta go my DS is home from school
