    Hello all!  I'm thrilled to have found this site and can't wait to learn more.  I'm a self-taught cake decorator which started out of necessity due to my son's food allergies.  As it turned out, I wasn't half bad and have really enjoyed challenging myself, perfecting recipes and learning new techniques.  I have never taken any formal classes (not sure if that's a good or bad thing) and really have no desire to.  Pretty much everything I need to know I've either learned through trial and error or combing the internet like crazy, which is how I stumbled upon this site.  I do not work for a bakery nor do I make cakes professionally, I just make cakes for family and friends.  Maybe later I'll venture into the professional arena, but right now I'm having too much fun learning and experimenting!  I look forward to learning more and maybe even sharing a nugget or two of what I've mastered.

    Thanks :)

    Welcome to Chef Talk.

    I’m sure that you’ve already found that the membership here is from all around the world, with skill levels varying from Professionals to Home Cooks and everything in between.

    Feel free to join in the conversation or start your own relevant thread.  

    You might want to utilize the Search bar at the top of the page, as many topics have been discussed previously.  The Articles, Reviews and Galleries are of note as well.  

    Should you have questions that are not addressed in the FAQ, Tutorials or Community Guidelines, please feel free to post those in the Feedback & Suggestion forum.  

    A note about forums, the Pro section is read only there for us folk not employed in the food industries, but it is very interesting to peek in on what they're talking about.

    I feel that the over 50,000 members here at CT are so very generous with their knowledge and always willing to help anyone, no matter your abilities.
