Cake Decorating Clubs

Cake Decorating Clubs
There is​ a​ magic about a​ beautifully decorated cake at​ a​ gathering .​
Whether it​ is​ a​ birthday cake or​ a​ 4 tier wedding cake .​
a​ work of​ art in​ confection​ is​ the centerpiece of​ any special occasion​ .​
While it​ is​ a​ long haul from spreading canned frosting on​ a​ sheet cake, to​ creating a​ work of​ art that will stop the show, it​ is​ a​ fun and​ rewarding experience to​ travel the road.
There are mentors that can help you​ to​ discover the beauty of​ buttercream, since the new resurgence of​ interest in​ cake decorating .​
There are several cake decorating clubs .​
One of​ the oldest cake decorating clubs, The Fremont Frosters, to​ one of​ the newest , The Contra Costa Cake and​ Sugar Society.
The 40 year-old Frosters, have members from Santa Clara to​ San Leandro, California, share years of​ experience, tips, and​ tricks with other members of​ the club .​
They gather once a​ month, they have a​ website, and​ a​ quarterly newsletter called Sweet Graffiti, that is​ filled with seasonal cake decorating ideas and​ pictures .​
Each month a​ member gives a​ presentation​ on​ cake decorating at​ the meeting .​
They find that all levels of​ cake decorators will learn something from each demonstration​ .​
Once most of​ the members see how a​ design or​ decoration​ is​ made, by breaking down the process, they see how simple it​ is​ to​ learn the different artistic techniques .​
It is​ easy to​ see it​ wasn't a​ big mystery after all and​ can be learned with practice .​
Cake decorating classes are more popular than ever .​
Craft stores are filled with information​ about classes, and​ tools for​ cake decorating .​
if​ you​ are not careful you​ can spend a​ great deal of​ money on​ tools to​ help with cake decorating .​
Starting out, you​ don't need to​ have everything you​ can get your​ hands on​ when it​ comes to​ Cake decorating.
All the beginning cake decorator needs are tips to​ make leaves, borders, and​ swags, disposable icing bags, and​ couplings to​ attach the tips .​
An icing rule for​ smoothing the top of​ a​ cake is​ helpful, a​ paint edger from the local hardware store will work for​ this​ .​
There were many more cake decorating clubs in​ the 1960's when women spent more time in​ the home, and​ were able to​ take up the art of​ cake baking and​ decorating .​
As time went by and​ most of​ the women began taking jobs, most of​ them were disbanded.
Many women are watching new cable TV food shows that are enticing home bakers back into cake decorating and​ learning European techniques such as​ using rolled fondant .​
The interest in​ cake decorating is​ huge and​ growing bigger every day .​
Enrollment in​ Wilton​ cake decorating classes have grown over the past few years.
Many people think cake decorating is​ easy, because the TV pros, who have been cake decorating for​ 30 years, make it​ look that way .​
They don't understand​ that it​ will take a​ good deal of​ practice to​ be able to​ get the same result as​ the pros do.
