Why book a cake decorator through Airtasker?
Through Airtasker, you can connect with some of the most trusted and well-recommended cake decorators in your area. Our platform allows you to look through their profiles, along with their recent ratings and reviews. Getting a highly-rated cake decorator is fast, easy and hassle-free.
A beautiful cake can establish the visual concept of a whole event. Cake decorating, when done correctly, is an artistic expression. Each stroke of icing and choice of elements added should be done with the entire theme in mind and the consistency of the material used. The job can be pretty challenging, though! When the current task includes a 10-layer wedding cake and a nearer deadline, don’t hesitate to ask for help from a Tasker.
Select that pink “Post a task” button, describe what you need to be done, and wait for offers to come in. Once you accept an offer, coordinate with your chosen Tasker, and they’ll take it from there!

Top Cake Decorators related questions
No, you don’t have to provide cake decorating supplies when you hire a Tasker for a cake decorator job near you. Let them know what needs to be done, and they’ll bring their own tools, such as piping bags, electric mixers, and even personalised cake toppers. You may be required to prepare some raw ingredients, especially if someone in your family has diabetes or following a low-sugar diet.
A bachelor’s degree is not required to be a cake decorator, but a certificate of completion from a pastry chef course may indicate that the person is serious about pursuing cake decorating as a career. It’s more important for clients to see previous work, so those wishing to pursue cake decorating should consider investing in making a portfolio.
You can pay for cake decorating and other services booked here on Airtasker through Airtasker Pay. It’s a safe way to secure payment from the client right when the offer was accepted. At the same time, the release of payment is done only after the project is completed. This is a win-win for both parties who can rely on Airtasker Pay for all payments made through our platform.
Yes, a cake decorator on the Airtasker platform isn’t just limited to working with direct customers.

What do cake decorators services include?
A cake decorator can provide you with a beautifully designed cake that is pleasing to the eyes and taste buds. They say people eat with their sight as much as their other senses, so getting someone to create personalised cake decorations can genuinely change the game for how you present and enjoy desserts. Here are some tasks that a cake decorator near you can help you with:
Cake icing piping
A cake decorator works with soft icing and pipes them to create intricate swirls and designs. This can include lettering and flower petal piping. This process is incredibly detailed and laborious. In fact, piping a floral design on a medium-sized cake can take at least four hours to do. Cupcakes with an intricate design instead of the usual icing swirl on top are even more labour-intensive because of the thinness of the design required. Imagine how long it would take to complete a floral wedding cake decoration on a multi-layered cake.
While a cake may have come from a delectable recipe, it will not sell itself on the shelves if it does not look good enough to entice the ordinary buyer. Cake decorators can work with bakeshops and caterers to style their cake display and generate more profit for them in the long run. They can also work with other culinary professionals like pastry chefs and bakers, sharing a kitchen and working on a standard menu.
Cake making and delivery
A cake decorator isn’t focused solely on the exterior of a cake. They also know their way around the kitchen and the oven. This means you can order a whole cake from them, the design included. There’s also no need to feel any guilt if you’re ordering a cake for yourself. You can always store it and save the last few slices to pair with your coffee or tea. If a standard size is still too big for you, wait for when you have family or friends over for a birthday party or other special event. The exquisite design on your cake or cupcakes will undoubtedly impress them.
A professionally baked and decorated cake requires careful delivery. To ensure that your custom cake gets to you before the icing melts and without any damage, your Tasker can also handle the delivery to your home, office, or anywhere you are.
