Top Tips for designing your clients cakes 

The following top tips will also help. 

  • Never rely on words alone. Draw up an image of your client's ideas . 
  • Use a simple flat template - the design sketch doesn't need to be amazing - but it ensures that you are both talking about the same decoration or design for the cake. 
  • Make sure your client signs off on that design. Send it to them on email confirming this is the design you will make.  
  • If your client has a crazy sense of colour and you know the colours won't work, draw the client colours on the sketch to show your client what you can see that they cannot.
