Nice work LP, I have to admit I make the cakes (rich fruit) then marzipan and flat ice, the free hand work is my wifes.

Oh, SP, I didn't put my pictures up to make you feel inferior, and I know Bolas didn't either. Quite the opposite (for me anyway), I wanted to encourage you with the things you can do. I have had a lot of other stuff, successful and not so much.

Just do what I did - look at all the pictures you can - here, through a google image search, cake decorating sites and books, etc. and find a place to start. You will be developing your own style in no time.

Cupcakes is a great place to start and they aren't as costly - you can practice and give them away or eat the evidence.

But above all, have fun!!!!!

I am not great at piping, but am working on it. I love the British/Australian techniques and have a few books I want to practice from. Maybe you and your wife can give me some pointers when I get to it.

I'll have to find some pictures of my creations for you guys. I'm not terrible as long as I only have a small quantity to decorate, when I get bored I get sloppy :P
