I am also totally self-taught. I started to learn about cake decorating few months ago. I have not taken any classes. I have lots to learn and I think I'm hooked.

self taught (which is obvious from my pics)- I couldnt afford a BD cake for my son one year and decided to make him a baseball field.

I did their cakes for a year or so, and then in May someone asked me to make them a reeces PB cup package- I now sell 3-5 cakes a week, I dont think they are Duff quality- But I have repeat customers, and get told at least 2-3 times a day that someone saw one of my cakes and fell in love with it.

I am also self taught, with the help of youtube and CC! I would love to take some classes, but there are none available in my area. I've been decorating for about 18months now. I'm hooked! I especially love making and lol eating cupcakes!

Baking...I'm 100% self taught since the age of 12. Decorating....I've taken the Wilton series of classes at Michael's but other than that, its been CC, Youtube, and books. I am much more a baker than a decorator. I really love making cuppies, cookies, breads, sticky buns, and pies. My cakes taste amazing (not to toot my own horn) but I definately need more practice in the cake decorating department.

Self Taught all the way. But only for about 2 yrs so I still have ALOT of learning to do! Id love to take some classes but would have to drive an hour one way... so I just dont see that happening. I guess Ill just keep figuring it out by trial and error....its more interesting that way anyway, right? icon_wink.gif
One of these days I going to splurge and order Sharon Z's dvds that I want so badly!

I'm not self taught....but I wanted to applaud all you ladies and gents because I love wondering thru galleries and YOU ALL DO SOME AMAZING WORK!!!!!! I've known bakers in my time that have graduated from some top schools that can't do the work that you all do!!!!

I am self teaching myself as well, I have learned so much from this web site, I make the cakes for family and friends (they pay for all the costs) as practice on different technics ans stuff. I will take pictures from here when they want a certain cake and make it something like it but put my own changes on it. I credit ALL the cake decorators on here with being my teachers, and I thank you all for help when I need it. THANKS CC your the best cake site out there.
