Time Tested Ways to Learn Cake Decorating Techniques Using Fast and Easy Methods #CakesAndDecors


If you want to learn cake decorating techniques, you'll be glad to know that the internet is filled with them! Whether you're brand new to cake decorating or simply wish to improve your skills, you can learn everything from basic techniques to more advanced ones at home on your computer.

Whether you are a novice to cake decorating or simply want to improve upon your skills, you can learn everything from basic techniques to more advanced ones on your own home computer. Online courses are the way to go because they allow you to learn at your own pace and practice techniques over and over again. Plus, they cost a LOT less than onsite classes! When you are trying to learn a new technique, do not allow yourself to become discouraged. Even if you make an enormous mess, do not give up. Keep practicing until you learn your new skills.


There are a few easy things you can do to make cake decorating techniques easier to master. For example, you must make sure you?re using the right pastry bag. You should not use large bags because they can be awkward to handle. When beginning, smaller ones will make adding color and writing a lot simpler.

Using the smaller pastry bags will also help to prevent you from wasting a lot of icing. The larger ones may be useful later on but you only need to practice the techniques---not perfect them! Practice makes perfect after all.

One more thing you can do to make sure that your practicing goes well is to learn to cut the pastry bag the right way. It must be cut so that it fits the coupler perfectly. Do not forget that the bigger end of the coupler faces up towards the tip of the bag. Position it down inside and then slice the end of the pastry bag so that the smaller end of the coupler sticks out a little bit.

It might take a few tries before you master how to prepare the pastry bag and coupler precisely, but once you get the used to it, it will make learning cake decorating techniques A TON easier! Cake decorating instructions can call for thin, medium, or thick consistency icing. As a novice, you might find assessing the correct consistency to be quite confusing, but you will catch on soon enough.

Whether you want to learn basic cake decorating techniques or more advanced, intricate ones, you need to accept the fact that you probably won?t learn everything in just one night. You may find yourself talented at one style but not so much with another style. Just take your time, don?t get discouraged, and good luck!

Learning cake decorating techniques does not have to be frustrating! Here's a tip: Get a comprehensive online class, take it in the privacy of your own house and then make a fabulous cake for your extended family. They are going to be STUNNED when they see what you can do! Hey, you can even turn it into your new house business and make extra cash each month!

According to my mother, baking is hard to learn unless you enrolled in a class and keeps on practicing at home. There are indeed a lot of techniques which can be learned however, I do believe there are people gifted to bake.

These are great tips. I love baking, but i never really tried my hand at cake decorating.

Always nice to see a beautifully and tastefully decorated cake, but it is more important for me that the cake itself tastes good. Cake decorating reminds me of an auntie of mine who loved doing it.

One thing that makes a cake so delicious, is how it is presented by decorations. A decorative cake is a PLUS ONE in order to invite customers to buy your cake.

Cakes are sweet and delicious but I avoid them because of the calories. But like what you said, there are many things to learn from making cakes, not just the end product itself

Those beautiful cakes but are they delicious. I prefer even a small cake that tastes great.

Sin Yee said...

Thank you for the tips. Love to share this with my friend who is building up her career in baking~

I'm really sad when people get discouraged from learning baking just because they fail once. It really pays to never give up! :)

My mom usually bakes cake before. That's how I got to appreciate the decors aside from just the cake.

Great tips! A lot can also be gleaned from watching YouTube videos. And here in the US, your local crafts store or bakery probably offers small classes that are worth checking out too.

Kelly Chin said...

Oh yes! Thanks for the tips and steps. Cake decorating is very therapeutic and just love to make a personalize cake decor for my friends birthday or parties.

Always nice to see beautiful cakes ;) But more often than not, they don't taste as good? I prefer other sweets like macarons or chocolates than cakes..

Amanda Love said...

I've always wanted to learn how to decorate my own cakes. Those are all great tips indeed.

Ling Tan said...

I love sweets! But I prefer eating them to making them
