Master the art of buttercream cake decorating



I am Neetha.

An entrepreneur, cake artist, writer, and teacher dedicated to helping you master the art of Buttercream Cake decorating!

From our signature buttercream recipe to piping over 25 blooms, palette knife painting, stained glass techniques and more… Let me share with you everything I know here, ‘step by step,’ so you can create your own signature buttercream cakes that will stand out from the crowd!

Welcome to my artsy buttery world! To have you here is my greatest happiness!

When it comes to cake decorating, buttercream is my absolute favourite. It is such a versatile medium that helps you turn your cakes into edible pieces of art!  And above all, Buttercream lets me live up to my motto that a cake should taste better than it looks, always!

But let’s admit it, buttercream is a bit fiddly, especially if you want to try your hands at flower piping or palette knife painting. I get it because I’ve been there!  Let me assure you, our buttercream recipes in here will change the way you look at buttercream. We are steering a little away from the traditional method of just butter and sugar. What we need is a buttercream that’s easy to work with, one that can withstand heat and humidity and one that’s absolutely delicious!

It took me more than a decade to perfect what I do, and I am still learning. I am entirely self-taught and whatever I share with you here are my explorations, all tried and tested, learned the hard way. In my previous life, I was an accountant, and it was in 2016 that I decided to make a career change doing the two things I love the most – caking and writing.

Like any small business, my cake success didn’t happen overnight. A lot of practice, persistence and developing my own style helped me get my work noticed. I was fortunate to have been recognised in competitions such as ‘Cake International’ and ‘Salon Culinaire’ where my cakes won awards based on looks as well as taste. I now regularly feature in Cake decorating magazines, blogs and continue to teach students from all around the world.

I hope to continue to spread the art, inspire and share with you everything I know so you can be the best in the world of Buttercream Cake Decorating!

So let’s get started!
