Cake Decorating Books, Novelty Cakes, Trade Qualifications, Wedding Cakes
Owned by Paris Cutler, Planet Cake is based in Balmain, Sydney and operates with over 20 staff. Planet Cake originally established its reputation 8 years ago based on its incredible novelty cakes and wedding cakes. As a result it has attracted fashionable clients interested in purchasing unique edible statements and event centrepieces.
Planet Cake has since expanded its business to include Australia’s largest cake decorating school which attracts students from around the world and has written three cake decorating books; Planet Cake a Guide for Beginners, Planet Cake Cupcakes and Planet Cake Celebrate all published by Murdoch Books.
All of Planet Cake’s teaching staff and cake artists are hand picked based on Trade Qualifications and all possess a minimum of 10 years cake decorating experience. By continually improving our cake manufacture and designs we have developed unique cake decorating techniques. These techniques are now referred to in the industry as the ‘PC method’. Armed with our valuable intellectual property we opened the Planet Cake School; our school sees thousands of students from all over the world and teaches over 40 different workshops.
It is safe to say Planet Cake is regarded as the #1 cake decorating educator in the industry. With a unique curriculum and experienced full time teachers our education program has trained many cake decorating professionals now operating their own businesses.
In 2011 we filmed our first TV show ‘Planet Cake’ hosted by Lifestyle Food network; the show became one of the networks highest rating shows for the year. Planet Cake has created cakes for A-list celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Celine Dion, Rihanna and Lady Gaga as well as for Television and many magazines. We have also created a host of amazing ‘stunt’ cakes the most famous being a realistic replica of the Sydney Opera House for Australia Day 2011, which weighed over 1.3 tons and required 32 cake decorators to make.
Planet Cake’s philosophy is to continue to push the boundaries of cake decorating both as professional cake decorators and educators and we have not finished yet, the best it still to come!
