How to make trendy cakes using template designs will make your cakin’ life easier and less stressful.

Learning design dimensions as a newbie was a hard lesson. And without a firm design, there was disappointment and times the cakes looked weird or off-balance and there was redo – over ‘n over.

Now, I’m not saying ALL the cakes made  winging the design was a total wash-out. But looking back on those newbie days, I wish I’d learn a ‘wee’ bit quicker on how important designing and cakin’ meshed together for success.

Throughout my cakin’ journery, I’ll make a few comments of what I did … not exactly right? And there are multiple examples when stopping to think. Keep in mind, this gal doesn’t exert herself over-the-stove to make a livin’. Kudos who do! I feel your back pain.

Now don’t think too much of this image, I was a newbie and Photoshop was __?  With that in mind, how could I have made this design more amazing?

Simple. The bottom tier was less equal in height to the top. Sigh. All that sugar work (including the ducky) was a step below of being what? Awesome. And that logo? Seriously … it needs to be? Smaller?

Okay … don’t look at the HUGE distorted logo. Sigh. My turning point for cake design was this Bas Relief Candle Cake.

Proud of this wedding cake. I began to get it right. And all it took was a designated sketch dimensional design. Whew!

Yeah, I know all of these cakes look pretty darn good (for a newbie) but just take a step back and know that with a template … it’s a darn sure thang!

So my gift to you is to help you to be successful in knowing … how to make trendy cakes using template designs.
