DIY Video: Cake Decorating Tools of the Trade

After posting a delicious wedding cake and frosting recipe in the last post, I thought it would be a great idea to follow up with a fantastic video on cake decorating tools I found on YouTube by Expert Village. If you are making your own cake or cupcakes, learning the basic cake decorating techniques and the tools needed are a must!

This great video explains the basic starter tools you’ll need to start you on your way to creating beautiful cakes. The woman in the video goes over basic starter tips for frosting such as leaf tips and star tips, and other basic tools. If you are just starting in the world of decorating, it’s a great video to watch to learn about some of the tools that would help you along the way.

If you decide you want to purchase some of these basic tools, most can be found at your local craft store such as Joanns, Michaels or AC Moore. Wilton is a great supplier of all things cake decorating..and is one of my personal favorites. I actually just recently purchased an entire fondant (to be explained in a later blog!) decorating set from AC Moore this week brand new for only $5 dollars (regularly $25)! Apparently they are getting rid of older Wilton products to make room for some of the newer I walked away with a steal! Check out your local store, maybe you’ll get a steal too šŸ˜€
