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? (more…)

Pretty “Tie Dye” or “Spirograph” Cake!

Maddie's Tie Die or Spirograph Spice Cake

I just wanted to share this “tie die” cake that one of our “honorary daughters” brought over the other night when we had her over for dinner.

She has been interested in cake decorating for some time, and at the last minute she whipped this up! It is a spice cake, and we were so impressed by what she did with a simple cake that I asked if I could post a picture of it here on the website.

I tried to get as clear a photo as possible with my little camera – Here’s another shot that will hopefully give you a closer look. Amazing what you can do with gel! 🙂Another view of Maddie's Cake

Icing is CRITICAL as You Learn How to Decorate a Cake

Learn How To Decorate a Cake - The FrostingAs you learn how to decorate a cake, one of the VERY first things you are going to need to understand is the importance of icing (aka “the frosting!”). Yes… You CAN just go on over to the store and buy some icing in a can off the shelf if you want to just get started with the actual decorations – but personally, I think you should have an understanding of 1) why the icing is so important and 2) HOW to make your own.

When you learn how to decorate a cake, you will soon discover that the ICING is not only what you will use to COVER the cake with, but it will also be the base of your beautiful decorations – such as the flowers, leaves, and other lovely accents that adorn those amazing creations you see in your neighborhood’s bakery window.

So, one of the most basic and wonderfully yummy frostings is Buttercream Frosting (or Buttercream Icing) that we just mentioned.

So, I would like to share with you a few bits and pieces about this if you would like to see it.. I’ll have a video here as well. So, without further ado, let’s go over to our “Learn How To Decorate A Cake – Buttercream Frosting” page to learn more now!
