When I first thought about Cake Decorating, I would see a cake covered with the traditional buttercream frosting! Yeah, that type of cake that looks unattractive and was purely made to satisfy the palate! Well, that is what my idea of a cake was! Until I saw how themed cakes can light up a persons face on their birthday!
Today, cakes need to be eye-candy and delicious, but what nobody realize is that people who create these cakes are not just an ordinary bunch of people, we all have a reason for making these deserts.
Baking and decorating is so much more. It could be a skill, passion, an art form or even an outlet for your creativity.
To me.... it became my Addiction!
So, no matter which of the above you are, I am sure in my Sweet World you will find something that will stimulate your own creativity or even create a need to learn to decorate.

What is even more amazing is that every artist work is a piece of art. It is their way of creating and applying their knowledge. My goal is to create a place where we all can learn from each other.

It is a fun exercise, but you do need some inspiration. The best way is to look at lots of different cakes and then create your own masterpiece. The Cake Gallery feature themed cakes: Birthday cakes, baby shower cakes, party cakes and picture cakes.
We have all attended a Cake Decorating Class in some way. It could've been watching a friend making a cake, attending a physical workshop or watching a YouTube video! The fact is that we never stop learning. There are always new trends, new products and ideas that will be shared. The best way is to filter it all and find the best of the best. Here you will see who I choose for my own development! I call them my secret weapon.
If you are like me, then you would love a free tutorial. I've probably watch thousands of them and that is how I've learned lots of my own skills. I prefer photo tutorials, especially step-by-step guides because I do not need to pause every 5 seconds. In my free cake decorating tutorials you will see and understand exactly what to do! I literally spoon-feed, if you know what I mean!

From the most basic tips to advance techniques such as Isomalt. You will also learn how to bake a perfect cake, how to decorate the cake and so much more.
It it was not for books, then my cake decorating journey would not be the same. Books are fun and when I have a book in my hand, I feel like I've won my cake battles already.
The cake decorating books on this page is what made me who I am today. It inspired me and is even loved by my kids.
You can page through these books daily and never get bored. Like I've said before. I am really a visual learner, and the more I see, the more I want to try! I do not think life is long enough to make everything that I have pinned on pinterest....but I just keep pinning!
Without a good recipe, all your efforts are useless. Why spend hours doing cake decorating if the cake taste terrible. Lots of care needs to go into both. You need to understand the science of baking. The order of how it happens and why!

This was a uniquely designed cake I made for a special friend’s 50th Birthday celebration. I made these roses as she loves roses & gardening & design.

Using a Cake Mix does not make you an amateur baker; it shows you care!
