Decorating cakes is very self nurturing, since you will feel good when you give your cake to another or share it with them. I read this analogy the other day and I will quote it here with only one minor change to avoid any sexist accusations: "Cake decorating is what happens when a woman (or man) redefines the kitchen as an artist's studio." Decorating a cake in artistic ways is both rewarding for the decorating artist and the recipient of the cake. Creating your next cake does not have to be a stressful experience, just get really creative and do not be frightened to try something new.

Your decorating can be as simple as applying a butter cream coating or using a stencil and dusting with some confectioner's sugar or cocoa powder. Your cakes can be iced with butter cream, royal fondant, or cooked icing and can be topped with features such as icing flowers, spun sugar, sprinkles or candy. You can create your cakes to look like a hot dog, drinks or even a pizza. If fact whatever your imagination can cook up.
