Now I can look at the 'cake disasters' section here and laugh, as I've had enough of them myself.  But it was only when I moved away from pampering my feeble feelings and got ahold of my reasoning, that I challenged myself to take those intimidating steps into.....gasp.......gumpaste for example.  or......horrors.....tappits.

and the biggest panic of all........Cooked Swiss Meringue Buttercream.......put it off for years.   Fear of SMBC, boy it seems absurd now, but there you go.:roll:

;-D Good for you ( and your tummy) for facing your fears!

Thanks! the forums and tutorials are very helpful.  I'm glad I got over the hesitation & fear of trying new things.
