December Creative Play Day 24: Basic Cake Decorating by Candace Jedrowicz

The Cool2Craft Creative Play theme for December is “Give Yourself a Gift.” You give to everyone else during the holidays and all year long. Time to give yourself a treat! Make something, go somewhere, do something that’s just for you and photograph it! Then share it with us – post it on the Cool2Craft Creative Play blog on the Hive. Anything goes! I’m going to run with this theme and craft every day in December. I’ll be posting tutorials and videos as well as making some kits available at the Marketplace. Join me on Cool2Craft for 31 days of blissful, healing, creative play and give yourself the gift of play, too! [Candace J.]

In this video you’ll learn how, with a little practice, you can WOW your friends and family! So sit back, relax and watch while I share the super secret tricks of decorating cakes. Then click here to download the pdf, print it out and start practicing!

My daughter tried a few things on this cake.  She did pretty good!
See how beautiful her shell border is?  She’s a natural.  You could be, too!
She made her garland with the flower tip.  It’s perfectly ruffly!

Don’t be afraid to try it!  And post photos when you do!  I should warn you – it’s addictive!

    Great job….love the ruffled garland! Writing is hard for me to do.

      Thanks Janet! Writing is easier when you can use one hand to brace the other and move your whole arm as you would in gestural drawing.
