Often times when we are practicing at home we want to pull out our books and have them out to guide us. The only problem with that is that cake decoration can get messy and before you know it you may find you have all kinds of grease marks on your pages.
There is a fix for that. Invest in some page protectors and a notebook. Cut the book down the spine and place your pages in the plastic page protectors. Now your pages will stay grease free and can easily be wiped off if you get something on them.
You can also add in some tabs or dividers and include any hand outs you get in class, recipes you collect or ideas you print off from the internet in your binder for safe keeping.
