No but...There is a show on uktv all next week at 9pm called Ace of Cakes - it looks fab, bit like Miami Ink but obviously about cake decorators and their creations!
Well done though - something I've never tried, love making cakes though...won't go into too much detail but different types of sponges etc. I don't think I've got enough patience to actually decorate them, I guess in the past I'd just get on and eat them!! haha! x

Good luck with the cake decorating. My bro was training to be a chef years ago and did a cake decorating course in the evenings. The things he made was amazing. There's a lot of money to be made in cakes and think you should go for it. Good luck!
