Without what can no event or occasion pass? Without a cake, of course. And cake designers specialize in making and decorating them. Since cakes are often the center of attention on the dessert table, they need to look perfect. Without hesitation, we can call cake designers artists whose main characteristic is creativity. Each of them has their own personality, they are intuitive, sensitive, expressive, original, innovative and curious. They must constantly think outside the box and expand their creative boundaries to ultimately exceed the expectations and desires of the customer.
The process itself starts by the cake designer baking the cake, then mounting it on the cake stand and layering the cake pieces to achieve the desired look. Only then does the decoration follow. Most often, fondant is placed on the cake, on which small miracles and stories are created. Below we bring you our shortlist of Sydney’s best cake designers who can help you with the upcoming celebrations.
