its something i always wanted to do & i always let the fact of not being able to see very well spoil it for me so i never bothered
then one day i nearly got run over by a car because i was in denial
the worst thing was it was my 3 year old daughter who stopped me from
getting run over by pestering me & telling me there was a car coming
she wouldn't cross with me & screamed at me to not cross & at that moment a car went zooming past me with the driver shouting well
you can imagine
& from that moment it changed my life i went & got in touch with the
R N I B told them that i might have an eye problem still not wanting to admit it and they come & helped me they gave me talking weighing scales
because i told them i like to bake cakes i think it was getting the talking weighing scales that did it for me the one thing the women from the
R N I B told me is just because you have trouble seeing it doesn't have to stop you .
the day after i enrolled at college to do cake decorating it took me a little longer than other people to learn but i managed it even my tutor was surprised she told me as soon as she new a visually impaired person was coming in to do cake decorating she dreaded it because she didn't think id be able to do it but i think i even surprised her
& im glad i did because i finished the whole course level 1 , 2 ,3 , 4
it took me 4 years to do it but i did it
& i don't tell anyone on my website because i want to be treated the same as any other cake decorator :D

Well hello... I myself decorate cakes too! It's my full time job, and I love it! I would love to learn more, but when you work at a Grocery store, you don't have the time or resources to work with fondants and such. Although I do have really bad astigmatism in my right eye, I am able to see with the aid of glasses and contacts.
Do you have any pics of cakes you have done??? Would love too see them!
Your bassets are adorable.. and I love your screen name, I feel that way every day and I only have 1! Someday though, I will get my way with the hubby, and bring another into the mix!
Welcome again, and hope to talk to you soon!

Those are AMAZING!!! I love decorating cakes, You get to be creative while playing with cake and icing, SWEET! BTW, LOVE LOVE, LOVE the "boob" one!
My boss at work, keeps requesting that I make him a pug dog cake.... I do make a puppy cake to sell out of my case, and it looks like a Westie/ Lhasa Apso, I keep trying to brainstorm and perfect my Basset cake.
I'll have to try and post some things that I have made.
