Cake Decorating DVDs or Course Online Anyone?

Cake Decorating DVDCake Decorating DVDs and Videos

Hi everyone! I got to thinking about cake decorating dvds and videos today as I was pondering holiday gift ideas for someone very special to me who loves learning cake decorating techniques but who is also on a budget and so needs cheap cake decorating supplies (she’s a young mom!).

Naturally, anyone can go find cake decorating videos YouTube style (and I PROMISE that I’ll post a good series of them on this website so that you don’t have to spend time on Youtube finding them as well). But, sometimes, “free” is not always the highest quality – or even complete. There are a lot of people who would love to learn cake decorating but don’t have tons of money to spend on a live class or a bunch of supplies.

So, what would be the next best thing for someone wanting to either start out learning how to decorate cakes as a total beginner or someone who already has the basics down, but wants to learn advanced cake decorating techniques?

Of course, you can check out the selection of discount or CHEAP cake decorating supplies that I’ve compiled for you here, and you can also do a search for cake decorating dvds. But I looked at a BUNCH of sites – that is, not ONLY Amazon – to see what else is out there that would be most helpful.

Cake Decorating DVDs or a cake decorating course online are GREAT gift! AND they are VERY inexpensive compared to what you might find if you have to drive to one being offered at a local community college (as just one example). So, here are a few DVDs and other resources I’ve found for you! I hope these are helpful!

Cake Decorating DVD with Kathy Brodock - Perfect for Beginners!Basic Cake Decorating DVD (or DVD Bundle) by Kathy Brodock

I found this DVD and liked what Kathy Brodock (the instructor) had to offer. She has well over 20 years of experience in cake decorating, and packs a LOT into this 1-hour video. When you visit the link, you’ll be able to see a preview video of what she will teach you. This is a VERY affordable cake decorating DVD and perfect for cake decorating beginners. You can buy the DVD for only $21.97 OR you can buy the “Bundle” pack that has the DVD as well as a nice Cake Decorating Gift Bag to start you off (it comes with 4 basic tips, a spatula, coupler, a flower nail and a decorator bag). This package costs only $39.97. What a lovely gift idea too! Click Here to Check Out Kathy Brodock’s “Basic Cake Decorating DVD”

      Thanks Teyler! I will have more coming soon!

      • Cake decorating has become a very popular activity over the last few years. There are now a lot of television programs that show people creating very elaborate designs. A lot of people would love to learn how to do the same thing. Fortunately there are a lot of cake decorating classes that you can take that will teach you just that – but if you can’t take one in person, these dvds and online forums can really help.

  3. You should see some of the beautiful cakes and pastries on the Greek Islands! Not just stuff you see in American diners (although those are pretty good too).
