I love to make cakes, and am super excited to have a group on that topic be our expert group of the week this week! If you have ever wanted to make cakes, or just want to learn a few tips from a pro-group owner, let's check out what the owner of Cake 101 had to share with us.
How did you get your group to grow, and how do you keep your members active? I
don't focus on trying to grow the group or keep up with members. It's a
very open group and people come and go as needed. We as a whole provide
a lot of encouragement for those who are just getting started
decorating or those who want to share their latest accomplishment.
How long have you been a group owner, and what made you want to start your group? I've been owner of this group for a little over a year. I inherited the group and I'm very happy I did!
are your top three tips for someone just starting a group? I
don't think I have any advice for anyone starting a group. I've had
several group not succeed...Luckily cake decorating is the "in thing"
right now! lol
What do you think your members take away from their group experience while they are a part of your group? We
help them feel confident in what they are doing. Everyone has to start
somewhere and my group is a great place to start! We have recipes from
bakers who have made a career out of cake decorating for over 30 years!
We also share tips and techniques that are good for everyone.
Anything else you would like to share with us?
My group rocks! We don't argue, there is no tension, nothing offensive.
It's a great group of ladies helping the same great group of ladies!
