Tutorials

When I was learning how to decorate cakes, many times I relied on other bakers’ and decorators’ online tutorials to help me figure out how I was going to get the idea I had in my head out as a cake or sugar decoration.  The cake decorating community is full of people so willing to share their knowledge and skills.

I hope to contribute to this community by adding sugarcraft tutorials for projects that I have done which I think may be of help to you.

If you have made a cake using my tutorials, please post a picture of your cake on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/debsmakescakes 

If you are looking for more hands on instruction, classes are held in at The Cake College in Berkshire.  For more information on The Cake College and the classes on offer, please visit thecakecollege.com
