Hi guys, I went to purchase a flavoring on line that was priced out at about $13.00 for a 16 oz. bottle, and by the time the shipping was added onto it, it was going to be $26.00 just for that one…Continue

I don't know if anyone else is realizing that multiple posts are coming though, some dated back to March, but the moderators have taken note and we have contacted Terri Happe (the owner of this site)…Continue
I started cake decorating when I was 25 years old. I am self taught, and my first cakes were pretty disastrous. But perseverance pays off and eventually, I have been able to come up with a few good cakes. I had to take a break from decorating due to carpel tunnel, so between the ages of 45 and 55, I quit all together, sold all of my pans, and figured I was done. A few years back, I decided to give fondant a try, something I had never ventured into before, but loved the look. My wrists didn't hurt using fondant, so I decided to give cake decorating a try again, and am in the learning stages of fondant, modeling chocolate, gum paste, and attempting to teach myself some Lambeth method cakes using butter cream. I have not attempted any sculpting as of yet. I also found that if I thin down my butter cream and use a little more Crisco, my wrist can tolerate the pressure of the piping bags better, along with putting a wrist strap on immediately after I am done.

Homemade marzipan might cost a little to make, but with this recipe, you will get a huge amount of dough to work with for filling candies, covering a cake, or making figures. My family loves marzipan so much that I notice that the batch just keeps getting smaller and smaller because there are little sneaky hands taking lumps out of my batch before I can even make it into…Continue

It's that time of year when you just want to smell everything spice! This is a recipe that I adapted from my Triple Chocolate, Sour Cream, Cappuccino, Pound cake recipe, and I could not have done it without Katy Nott (member here) and her idea of using caramel milk.…Continue

Filling and top of cake (and down the sides if you have enough left):

You are so right! I know it's been years since we last communicated but now being a Decorator in a professional environment I totally understand now what you were telling me back then! I hope you are well!
Hey Linda... haven't heard from you in forever... I hope your worlds good...!
Hey Linda - guess what? Mick and I started to watch a new series to UK TV last night, called Hell on Wheels. If you don't know it, it's roughly based on post American Civil War and the building of the railroads. But the first scene was based on Council Bluffs, IA in 1865! That felt really weird, knowing that you live there. Was it a coincidence or is there some historical significance to Council Bluffs?
Love your picture Linda.
Oh yes, I do remember now you telling me about your cataract surgery. I had my eyes lasered 5 yrs ago. Doc tried to talk me into leaving one eye for seeing close up. Explained the "brain" thing, which does work, know some who had it done that way. I chose not to. I only use reading glasses when, well reading, or on computer. If the light is really good, don't need the glasses. Don't need them for driving. Don't miss my glasses at all.
Wow...... a new and profile pic..... You look wonderful. What happened to your glasses?Looking skinny, skinny...... :o)
Thanks so much Linda for your help. I still need to learn a lot about being a member of this community. I highly appreciate your kindness.
