I took a cake decorating class at the local technical college here. You can take like cake decorating I, II, and III. Places like Michael's also offers cake decorating classes and they may be cheaper than the local college. I did get a certificate when I took the class at the local Technical College. Good is alot of fun. Cake decorating is an art, It amazes me to watch a decorator create a rose on a tool that looks like a roofing nail. Decorators I know have people tell them that it would be a fun job. What they do not understand that some decorators in the larger bakeries have to produce 60 to 80 cakes a day! The wife did it for 21 years!

Does a cake decorator need a college degree?

A college degree never hurts. Does a cake decorator need one? I would say not necessarily.More detail:No, you definitely do not need a college degree to be a cake decorator. I was a cake decorator long before I ever went to college. You don't even have to have any formal training in it - you just need the talent and desire to learn. I learned by books, specifically the Wilton books.As long as you deliver quality cakes, that's all you really need. But if you plan to do it commercially, as in setting up a business for it, you will need to be licensed by the city or county. But you can also do it out of your home without the license if it's only a part time or side line business, and you only do a few each month.
