I am new in the bakery world and wanted to reach out to all you fellow bakers. I would like to start off by saying that I am totally floored by the pictures of cakes that I have come across on this website. You all rock !! I can’t even imagine creating such pretty cakes, and this is why I am posting to get some suggestions from you pros.
I am a stay at home mom and love to bake but I have NEVER EVER decorated cakes. Someday I would like to start a home based bakery but I do not know where to begin. I know that currently I do not have the skills to do so, but how do I become awesome like you guys? Should I go to a pastry school to learn the skills? Or should I take up Wilton (or any other?) decorating classes. I mean I just google recipes and follow them-that’s all I can do—how do I advance my skills?
I contacted LCB and they are starting a new session for pastry and baking next month. The course seems really good and I am really tempted to sign up. Would it be worth going to LCB to eventually open a home bakery?
I need all the advice you can offer J
