About Cake Decorating Central
LIke any cake related business, Cake Decorating Central was born out of a love of cake by two business partners - Kylie Richards and Louise Davey. Each of them brings a wealth of experience to the business, Louise is a 2nd generation cake decorator and Kylie has a management background as well as the love of a good challenge.
Similar to a good cake recipe, these two skill sets have helped the business to grow and rise to be well known in the Australian Retail Industry.
For a number of years, they dabbled in humble surroundings in a home based environment, supplying made to order cakes, hiring out cake tins, and teaching classes both at home and in a local hall before the realisation that this could "really be a goer" prompted them to seek more permanent premises. Now stores are proudly placed in both Castle Hill on Hoyle Avenue, and in Woodbine near Campbelltown on Harbord Road.
The last few years have been busy with expansion into the coordination of the decorating classes for the Cake Bake and Sweet Show in Sydney and Melbourne. This has fostered new working relationships with some of the most fabulous cake artists from both within Australia and from overseas as well. Many a laugh has been had late night while prepping for classes, and we have made not only new friends, but renewed old friendships too.
The Cake Kit of the Month program has gone from strength to strength too and is now produced as a collaboration with The Australian Cake Decorating Network (ACDN) to allow for a wider range of ideas and techniques to be taught by accessing their extensive decorator network. We love working with Liz, Kirsty and the team and have just returned from their 2016 Cake Camp in the Blue Mountains - cake fun never ends around here!
To all of you, from all of us at Cake Decorating Central, we hope you enjoy your cake decorating (and of course tasting!) journey, and we are proud to be even a small part of it with you.
