We love to play with our food!
Since 2000, we have long thought of ourselves as Crafty Bakers, giving you step-by-step recipe projects, with detailed information, tips and techniques, with lots of color photos. We enjoy thinking of baking as an art, as well as a science, too. Enjoy some of our well-crafted recipe-tutorials.
If you have additional questions, please post them in our baking911.com Forum, and we will be happy to answer them.
SARAH SAYS: Decorated cakes, cookies, etc. are so beautiful and festive. To learn, it does take practice and patience, but it is fun to do and we show you how. Just remember, with decorating, less is definitely more; it's the little details that can really pull your recipe together. Oh, and don't forget, it never needs to look perfect!
