Exquisitely designed wedding cakes and intricately decorated cupcakes have each emerged as cultural icons.

Their ever-increasing public profile and place in our celebratory rites have created a booming business trend within the culinary world. Producing these pieces requires a trained eye that understands scale, form and composition and a practiced hand that can execute a vision for turning raw ingredients into edible art.

ICE's Techniques and Art of Professional Cake Decorating was developed for anyone with an interest in pursuing a rewarding career in cake decorating. This multi faceted, 240-hour program was developed and is led by ICE's award-winning Chef Instructor Toba Garrett. The program starts with the basics of piping and moves on to explore all intricate elements of decorating, including the many international styles of cake artistry, such as Nirvana, Lambeth, Australian and Oriental string.

With the final lessons of the program supported by renowned Chef-Instructors Elisa Strauss and Collette Peters, you will also learn contemporary designs, airbrushing techniques, painting with precision, novelty cakes, advanced sugar floral work and hand sculpting skills. Finally, at the conclusion of the program, you will have the confidence to tackle any cake project and will present a grand finale of stunning cakes and sugar artistry.
