A Pro Cake Decorator I Will Never Be!

It's a good thing that my cakes taste better than they look!


We have a huge extended family, so for parties like our oldest son's recent Confirmation, a sheet cake helps feed a hungry crowd and is usually requested. I have pretty much all the tools I would need for elegant cakes (except that I need to replace my paste colours 'cause all I had left was yellow or orange), but I'm usually impatient rushing and get sloppy with the decorating. I know it is fine, it works, but I just think if I practiced when the pressure wasn't on, the results might just be a little more professional looking.


That's it, even though I have been making them for a few years now, I'll practice more. At least there will be more excuses for cake! I also feel better when I think of the numerous cakes I have made, and the money we saved over bakery prices.

  4. I would love to take a course. I can't even get the icing on without becoming totally frustrated. You did a far better job than I would have. You're hired! : )

  5. I too would like to learn to decorate cakes for "real"... as my kids were growing we had many of the Mom decorated cakes with the star tip like yours! I once covered an entire cake with the little things!
