Everyone loves a good slice of cake. Well, even if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, you probably still take a piece whenever you’re at a birthday party. There’s something irresistible about that super-sweet sheet cake covered with sticky frosting.
You might not have ever tried to decorate a cake yourself. If that’s the case, you probably don’t know just how hard it is. Even just writing on a cake is a huge challenge. Those beautiful professional cakes that you see in bakeries are made by experts. They’ve spent years perfecting their ability to sculpt gorgeous things out of frosting, sugar, chocolate, icing, and fondant.
