Gather the Tools

Once you learn how to decorate a cake you will need to acquire the proper tools and equipment you will need to bake and decorate the cakes. You will need to make a few decisions on how involved you want to get into the cake decorating hobby. If you just want to do a few cakes for right now you may be able to borrow most of the items or get cheaper versions of each tool. However if you want to be able to do progressively more difficult cake creations as your knowledge and experience in the cake decorating field increases you will want to purchase higher quality and longer lasting tools and equipment.

Local craft stores such as Michael’s, carry a wide assortment of cake decorating tools and some local stores even have cake decorating classes from beginners to more advanced cake decorating lessons.

Just like anything else in life that you want to master, practice makes perfect. The more you use the tools of cake decorating, the better the finished products will become.
