About the Cake Decoration Supplies and Equipment heading in Yellow Pages®
Cake decoration supplies and equipment refer to the materials used to decorate and present cakes after they have been baked. Cake decoration is used on special occasion cakes such as weddings or birthdays and is a method of personalising a cake’s presentation to the recipient. Cake decoration supplies are available from cake shops and specialist retailers.
Objects such as flowers, pearls, butterflies and people are all created as edible forms of cake decorations. Depending on the occasion, a cake decorator can create a particular edible item to suit. Edible decorations are made of gum paste and sugar and can be handmade or bought from cake decoration suppliers. Decorator’s icing is used with other ingredients such as colouring or butter to create a certain look. Writing on a cake is a form of decoration and this effect can be created by piping icing onto the cake surface, or by using an edible food pen. Edible food pens are available in different colours and styles. Other cake decoration equipment includes mats and rolling pins, cutters, moulds and finishing tools.
Cake decoration supplies are available from retailers and some cake shops. Suppliers offer recipes, cake making ingredients, pans, tins and decorating equipment and instruction guides. Search with Yellow Pages® to find a number of cake decoration supplies and equipment in all states in Australia.
