Cake Decorating Tips


Here are some cake decorating tips (for non-professionals).

If you are someone with an idea to make a cake there's one question to keep in mind, Am I a professional or non-professional? 

These tips are for the non-professional. 

Making a cake is the boring part, but decorating it is the fun part. Here are a few ideas to get started.


First shop around your local grocery store or craft store for some supplies. You would need to choose the type of icing, sprinkles, and tools to sculpt your cake. 


Some people prefer to buy decorations that have already been sculpted.  This can save a lot of time and also give a professional look. 

Helpful Tip: Before decorating make sure that the cake is cooled. 


Next, decide what type of design, according to the occasion. 

Once you have decided, then proceed with a top coat, and make sure the entire cake is covered. 

After the top coat practice the designs on some wax paper before applying them to the cake. 


Once you have achieved the look, take the sculpted design (that you bought) and place it on the cake. 

If this is your first time, don't expect it to be perfect. 

The process should be a fun and memorable experience.
