Hello all.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm a newbie...both to this forum and baking. I want to bake and decorate like a pro. Not really looking to go professional with it, just want to impress family and friends. My first project being my sons first birthday cake. Trial run yesterday...failed horribly! ;-) I want to bake my cake from scratch and decorate in fondant, which seems to be all the rage right now. I have a small bit of experience in decorating. I worked at the local Dairy Queen in high school and one of my many tasks was decorating the ice cream cakes. I think I developed some skills there. Fondant however is totally new to me...as is baking something not in a box.

With that said...all you pros feel free to educate me.
