We are in need of a professional cake decorator and not having much luck with the ad responses. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to find someone with this type of experience? We are so busy and have no time to train. Please Help.

Where are you located? Are you a bakery, grocery store, private home, dorm room? What kind and how many cakes/cupcakes/cookies do you make/sell daily/weekly/monthly?

What about a college or culinary school near you? Not all of those students are beginners. Facebook? Word of mouth? Everybody knows someone who knows someone who does cakes. Here's a thought - - have you tried calling other bakeries to see if they know of an experienced decorator who might be available?

You certainly don't give enough info icon_sad.gif
As the other poster said, tell us much more detail regarding your location and needs.

Sorry! We are a small cake shop located in Santa Clarita, Ca. We usually put out 20+ specialty cakes a week and 5+ wedding cakes a week.We need someone that is skilled with character piping in buttercream, 3-d cake sculpting, fondant characters, etc. This is to replace someone that has been with our company for 18 years. We have tried facebook, no luck. I just posted an ad with a local art school so hopefully that will help but any other input would be greatly appreciated or if anyone knows of someone in the area??
