How Do I learn to avoid OVERDECORATINGITIS..............

post #1 of 8

Isn't that the official term for putting too much crap on a cake when just a few touches of something would do?

 

How in the world do you superb cake decorating 'Artists' know when to stop, when enough is enough, and just back-away-from-the cake....... It is beyond me

:cry:

I don't know - I'm kind of naturally a minimalist. Maybe like they say with jewelry: Put on what you think is right and then remove one piece.

Maybe this is helpful - I often make more decorations than needed. Don't feel compelled to put them on just because you made them, you know?

Think like Coco Chanel, lol

 

"When accessorizing always take off the last thing you put on"

I always figure it's enough around the time I think "Screw it, I'm tired! I'm not getting paid enough for this!"

I like that answer.  :) 

 

and the Coco Chanel advice,  what a gal she was. "“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”" Coco Chanel

 

 

I feel compelled to fill in every blank space of icing sometimes..........

Hahahaha! I'm a minimalist too. I find clean lines and simple touches most attractive of all when I look at other cakes.

You have to learn to listen to that internal voice that says , "step away from the cake " .
