Cake decorating is one of the sugar arts that uses icing or frosting and other edible decorative elements to make plain cakes more visually appealing. Alternatively, cakes can be molded and sculpted to resemble three-dimensional persons, places and things, says Wikipedia. In past blogs, we've featured baking pros from Sydney and Melbourne who transform simple cakes into a mountain of pastry perfection. This time, we're introducing the Perth's best cake designers.
“Small Batch Artisanal Cakes and Desserts”
Jenne says that with practice she always gets better, and when it comes to cakes, she has honed that craft all her life. Jenne's cakes, especially the creamy vanilla buttercream, have been tested and perfected over the years. Whether it's a birthday, a wedding or you just want to please someone you care about, Jenne will create the perfect little cake for you.
On top of that, she has her own e-book and offers online classes. In them, she uses her skills and recipes to give you the knowledge, skills and tricks you need to create your own edible masterpiece. This can be a little incentive to turn those skills into a successful small business, just like Jenne. Not only will you learn how to bake the perfect cake, but you'll also get tips and tricks on decorating and photography.

Successful cake designers must keep up with the latest styles, techniques and trends in cake decorating and demonstrate creativity, attention to detail and excellent customer service skills. With an artistic eye and good coordination, cake decorating can be a very creative, challenging craft. On the other hand, such workers are exposed to various occupational hazards, including slips, falls, wounds and burns, and must deal with a work environment that can be stressful, with long hours and possible holiday work.
For all these reasons, we pay tribute to cake designers and appreciate their hard work and dedication. You can find these top vendors at Spotfood and hire them for some upcoming events. Because let's face it, what would a celebration be without a beautiful and delicious cake?
