I am a French archaeologist and discovered cookie decorating very recently, less than a month ago. I actually wanted to bake a thematic cake for my best friend's PhD defense, and while looking up designs online, found some incredible buttercream piping. I really wanted to try my hand at it, but I HATE buttercream with a passion, so I looked up alternatives and found cookie decorating, which I had literally never heard of before. A look at one of Julia's videos, and the revelation that I did not need ANY special material to begin (hurray for parchment cones!), and I've been obsessed ever since.
As I am a true beginner - and possess hardly any equipment - my designs are still a little clumsy. I am therefore a bit shy about posting them here amidst the professionnally-decorated cookies, but I also would like to have a portfolio to track my progression. Is there a way to set up a portfolio on the site without everyone getting an alert for my ugly cookies?
