cake decorating

When I was just getting into cake decorating over a decade ago, there weren’t too many sources online for information.  But, over time, new sites and blogs emerged, sites like Cake Central and Craftsy.

Nowadays, there are so many online sources of cake decorating information, classes, blogs- it’s hard to keep track of it all.  I’ve put together this list of blogs, cake designer websites, cake membership sites, online classes, and more to help you get started.


Note: I’ve tried to be as thorough as possible, however, I’m sharing sites that I frequent often and consider to be my favorites.  There are many more blogs, cake designers, and youtube channes out there, but this is a good place to start.  Also, the listings are in no particular order- I truly love them all.
