Come and join me on my journey into the world of baking and cake decorating. Here I will discuss some techniques, products and project ideas. I would love to hear about your own experiences, projects and preferred products! I want this to be a launching point of support for other decorators no matter the skill level. Come here for inspiration, support or maybe to just vent.
A little disclaimer….I am unable to showcase some techniques as I just might teach them in my classes. Therefore, if I teach it I can’t instruct it on my blog. But the wonderful thing about cake decorating is that there is so many amazing things to do! Don’t worry, we’ll cover a large variety of things here.
No matter where you are in your decorating skill, there is something for everyone. I hope you might find something useful here! Maybe just that little extra bit of inspiration to get the creative juices flowing.
Last but not least I am here for moral support. I have been in some unique situations during my classes with people who are experienced, think they are experienced or plan on starting a business. Many times they get a little edgy and protective of their magical cake decorating and baking secrets. Now, I totally understand that you may not want to share great-grandma’s amazing recipe, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a source of encouragement and inspiration for others. I have been talked down to, yelled and scoffed at all by women who gave push back on simple discussions about cake decorating. If you have experienced that, I promise you won’t find it here. I believe we can be a major source of support. Trust me, there’s enough cake for everyone.
And for any cake decorators out there, I know all of your frustrations. The crazy buttercream days, dry and cracked fondant, indecisive customers, bridezillas, staying on time and on task, delivery’s. You name, I’ve been there and if you need a place to vent, then feel free! Release the stress!
