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.

Cake styling

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.
