Aaaand then we will spend more money buying tools and gadgets to improve our results, and on and on.
Sorry, little bit of a rant there. I get annoyed by things like this!
What I now have, that I did not have in the past decades are the tools, you-tube videos, and CC.com university level tutorials and tips from the Master Decorators.
What I don't have is natural talent or artistic genes. And it's Ok. I look at my 2014 New Years Cake and I see something that was not even in the realm of possibility for me in 2013!
Then I look at JWinslows cake and I'm like a little kindergarden kid looking in the window of the local bakery. And I am in AWE of her talent. Just remembering our very first cakes is sure to give you a laugh.
The tools and gadgets do work, so if you can budget and afford them, keep shopping.
If I could buy the talent and natural design skills, I'd spend my whole savings account, guaranteed.
And you can be happy that you are intelligent enough to know the difference between fake & real.
