    There are lots of different approaches. You can go to your local craft store (Michael's, Joann Fabrics, etc) and buy the supplies and how to books and get baking on your own. Or you can sign up for Wilton cake decorating classes at whatever craft store you go to. Not all craft stores have the classes but they will likely have the supplies. Also some grocery stores occasionally have a cooking class but you have to know your store to know if they have services like that.

    To add to Parchessey's great comment, you're going to need to bake a lot of cakes. Some cakes are going be big winners and some are not. A pastry bag with an assortment of decorating tubes will be a necessity, as will cake pans of different shapes and sizes. The trick will be finding the perfect frosting, icing, or fondant to decorate with. Reading books and taking classes will help, but experience will be the better teacher. Good Luck!
