Become a Cake Decorator

Cake decorating has become increasingly popular over the past twenty years or so with people decorating elaborate and attractive cakes for their loved ones, friends and colleagues. Cake decorating has also become a hugely lucrative business with people designing cakes that sell themselves, or in some cases, having companies who design custom cakes for special occasions.

Cake decorating has become one of today’s most popular art form, and it can involve everything from simple frosting to sophisticated icing and fondant decorations. Cake decorating basically involves decorating the cake with decorations around the cake itself. Depending on what type of decorations you choose to use, your decorated cake can take on an array of different looks, shapes and textures.



Another popular cake decorating hobby is making edible sculptures from fondant. This can include using edible modeling paint, colored glazes, or even edible paints. Fondant sculptures can either be used as a stand alone decoration for a cake or used as an element of a layered cake or cupcakes. Fondant can also be used to cover a cake in a decorative pattern to make it look like a natural object. This is a particularly popular hobby amongst those wishing to teach younger children how to decorate cakes.

Cake decorating can also involve using edible embellishments such as fondant flowers, chocolate chips, lace and chocolate coins. These edible items can be used to create unique and individual designs on a cake, which can range from simple flowers to complex multi layered cakes. In addition, edible floral patterns can also be used to decorate a cake. These patterns can be used as the main or secondary decorations of a cake or can also be used as elements of a theme around the cake itself.

Many people also prefer to decorate cakes in a very artistic manner using layers. This method of cake decorating involves using multiple layers of fondant and edible items to create multiple decorative effects on a cake. These layers can then be layered down to create a completely unique looking cake.
