Hi cake artists,


I've had this love for making cakes for about 6 months now, I do have made some cakes trying different recipes etc. they are not the best cakes ever made but to be my first time they weren't bad.


Now the time has come to start practice my decorating with fondant, meringues, etc to start making them look pretty and palatable, do you recommend me to practice my decoration on the actual cakes or should I practice on flat surfaces until I get better at it so I don't waste too much ingredients?


thanks in advance.

Hi there :)

I bought a set of cake dummies from 12 inches to 6 inches so I could practice decorating while I wait for my baking pans to arrive. For piping I have printed out a few templates and covered them in contact so I can pipe on them and then wipe off when I'm done.
