What are typical cake decorator salaries? Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field? What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

I've worked at a grocery store here in Iowa for about 8 years as a head cake decorator and am just now making $12.90 per hour. I do all the cake decorating including wedding cakes and ordering all my stuff. I would love to be making more!

Wow, I would think that after a long period of time you would make a little more. I guess I'm not doing bad. I'm at 11.85/hr and I've been doing cakes for a little over a year. I started out as a back up cake decorater and moved to another store where I am alone to do as you. Order my supplies, etc and keep the whole case full. I will from time to time get a little help. Thank God!
Well, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

cake decorators need to stop taking those low paying jobs. We have skills and granted some have better skills than others. Don't accept below $10.00 if you are a beginner and have a lot to learn. The more that a "beginner cake decorators" take these jobs with extremely low pay, the harder it is going to be for everyone in this industry to do what they love with a respectable hourly wage. This particular skill brings in a "WHOLE LOT OF MONEY" to businesses, and we need to not accept less, and let this message ring out to business owners that wants us to lower our self worth. A highly skilled Cake Decorator can make good money ($14-$17 average).

Thank you for your comment. I needed to know approx. the rate to expect. Oct this year will be 2 years cake decorating. My rate is a little over 10 but not over 14(I wish). I have to handle alot. Plus order my own supplies. I feel I should be paid more for the extra duties done, but I float on. When raise time come I do expect mine, every penny. I've earned it! plus more. Customers appreciate my work and ask for me to assist. At the same time, I love what I do...cakes!

you get what you pay for if the company only wants to pay y amount of Dollars you will get the high ratio frosting .sweet tex and powdersugar if your lucky they will buy a bag of egg white powder to throw in and some water to make it fluffy, I have been in bakeries i had asked for milk to make pastry cream .
they looked at me like i had 3 eyes .we have milk powder .LATER i gave my notice after 5 weeks of working there ,
getting back to the origional question NO we dont get paid for time served in the field .again we dont know how much these people owe there purveyours Bookies and bartenders .

I work in Laural,MD now as a wedding cake decorator. The company I work for is a family owned business and they treat us all like we can be replaced in a week. I really love to decorate, even more now that I have been doing weddings for the last 9 months. Union you say...what is the name of this establishment, I would love to come check it out. I have been fighting the good fight with these people for too long about getting a raise since I now work on weddings. I gave my two weeks today, and even thought I have no job lined up...which is completely silly with the economy the way it is, but I feel like that 2 ton bolder is off my back. Please replay...who knows I may run in to you along the way. (...back to my job hunt)

I took a part time job at a grocery store chain. Some of the grocery stores in my area are union, and I was being paid 8.10 to start. I have experience, but did not go to school for cake decorating. I thought it was decent part time work, and I would like to do it full time someday. Right now, I can't afford the pay cut it would be to do this full time. :-(

I live in Pasadena, MD and I have been decorating cakes since I was 12 years old and I am now 19 years old. My rate of pay starting out at an individually owned bakery in pasadena was 6.00/hr with no experience and now I am being offered anywhere between 15-20/hr plus the cakes I do on the side. It really all depends on how good you are and if you can show proof of your work. A lot of people claim to have years of experience, but what good is experience if you yourself are no good. I know decorators that have been decorating cakes for 40 some years and I far exceed them in the talent department and I get paid better than they do. I have also gone to bakeries where they paid me more then the other decorators that had been working there longer because I had more skill. I have also gone to bakeries and they started me out at a lower rate than I would have liked and they have given me raises within the first few weeks. I'm not trying to sound snotty, but most places will pay you what you are worth because they know their business. If they aren't then you should look around and I'm sure you can find someone who will pay you what you are worth. In the Cake business years of experience don't mean anything if your cakes don't reflect your experience.

safeway is an o.k. company to work for but, they won't give you any help in the decorating area. the decorator brings the $$$ into the bakery but, they still want you to get the work done yourself. i make 16.50 per hour, i've been topped out for quite awhile. get a pay raise once a year, 15-45 cents per hour. yes, they are union, and you have more job security with a union. they don't hire many full timers though, they will keep you just under the full time hours. you also work every weekend, forget having sundays or saturdays off. count on handing your life over to safeway.

And i must say 20+yrs of dec. and i do enjoy what i do.

i have walked in your shoes when it comes to all the cake orders and if you enjoyed what you do it wouldn't make you unhappy,also what your family is paying you there using you they know what dec's get paid tell them to up your pay if they say no walk out. its evident they don't care about your feelings or what bills you have to pay.

I can't believe you are still there in the store for such little pay,,,why dont you get a customer list and at least start baking in your home, for a start at least......or maybe go to a kinda gormet type shop, I know you have them there, they are everywhere, and start marketing yourself. Just market your skills, plus add that your cakes are wonderful tasting delights....I am in Norman Okla and even though you arent suppose to do it Health Dept, or codes against it, there are ways to get around it....I know of a lady here and she has a web site, her bottom end wedding cake is over 1000 dollars, she is doing tons of cakes........get going....dont let these people take advantage of you, just because it is a comfortable situation, you are not enjoying it, and it is art...............a talent...........start teaching classes at area votechs also............goodluck........

My dd and myself have taken the michaels classes..on the 4th class now:) I would highly suggest this class. I have learned so much, had a great time, and had a great instructor.

We have been making alot of cakes for family and friends and only charging for products while we make a portfolio!

Good luck and have fun!

Community colleges also offers cake decorating classes check that out. Also you can buy wilton books buy some decorating tools and start teaching yourself. Don't stop going to school though you have to try it out first before you make such a rash decisions. Also you should know that some people don't have what it takes but if your serious and practice practice practice then it will probably work out. Good Luck

I have been decorating for 15 years, mostly in grocery chains and they do not pay much. I am out of work and jobs in this field are hard to come by when you need certain amount to get by. I heard someone say to" walk out of your job if they dont give you a raise" I am finding out the hard way this is not a good idea, find something else before you quit.I love cake decorating and it is a great pleasure to take a blank canvas and make it into something that people will cherish in memory for the rest of their lives...Im not giving up my hope for better days to come..hang in there everybody

Unless you start your own business...this will never pay off working for someone else. I am also 26, with a college degree, and have been a wedding cake decorator for a few years, and before that I was a pastry chef. Decorating doesn't receive the pay or the respect. So if you feel you have the skills, creativeness and a lot of patience, then you should ask yourself if you want to do this? It's an art form....are you an artist? You should take the job to see if you like it...but don't expect to be like Duff lol...they have " Cake Bosses" out their too. Best of luck in your decision

Most people end up doing it out of their homes...or as a part time job.....then you have every Susie Home-Maker with their Wilton guide thinking they can do it too.

LOL, this is so true. Some people have the knack for it and some don't. As for the pay,, no, you're not paid your worth. I was free hand drawing at a store bakery and knew I wasn't getting the pay for it. Just wanted to please the customer. I don't advertise that I do this type of work,only a couple of customers know. I've been here for over 2 years and not over 13.00. In all, I do enjoy decorating though.

I have been a cke decorator for 8 years and I LOVE IT! If you have a passion for it or even just a passion for art or creativity then go for it. I started at $8 per hour and now make $13. Not great, but it pays the bills.

There is a REALLY BIG downside though that all you newbies should know about...CARPAL TUNNEL.
I have severe carpal tunnel syndrome because of my job and have been told that if I don't ease up I will lose perminant function in my hand (that's what I get for decorating 60 cakes a day). Bear this in mind because just about every great decorator I know has carpal tunnel.

to stave off carpal tunnel the best thing you can do is work out your forearms and wrist muscles. by strengthening those muscles you will find immense relief.Just get some five pound weights and do curls and wrist rotations. the best thing about doing these exercises is that not only do you find relief but you end up getting more shapely arms, plus they are really easy to do while just sitting on the couch watching tv. NEVER push yourself, if you feel any pain whatsoever stop and rest for a day or two. Start with a low number of reps and slowly work your way up to more reps. Only do the exercise every other day to rest and recover. I can guarantee you that you will see a marked improvement in your carpal tunnel within a months time.

I tried to get the company to pay for my surgery but they said it couldn;t be proved that I got it there and the just put me in physical therapy. Ah well.

I don't think there's anything wrong with tooting your own horn every now and then, (especially if your customers and co workers tend to agree with you.) I've been told I'm the best in my store and in my store's district.Yes, it strokes my ego but that just means that I have more work to do for the same amount of pay. It's not always a good thing.:-)

"Bake Your Own Damn Cake" by CNC

(customer 1)
Excuse Me
Can you help me?
I need a cake in two hours
Make it white with pink flowers
It's my daughter's birthday and she's invited her whole class
I need it big, pretty and frilly
And with strawberry filling
With ribbons and streamers, and do the candles come free with that?
(decorator)
Ma'am just wait a minute
Let me talk and let me finish
We're behind on our orders
Short staffed and on a Saturday
Now you know you need to order
A day before, no shorter
School lets out on a Friday, so where the hell were you yesterday?
(chorus)
Bake your own damn cake
Or take one from the case
No, there's no mistake
In fact your stupid @$$ makes my head ache
It's a little too late
To take a full sheet order today
So bake your own damn cake
or take one from the case
(customer 2)
Excuse me
What flavor is this?
Is it white or is it chocolate?
And how much is it?
And how fresh is it?
I want one that's baked fresh today
I need it moist, with butter-whipped icing
For a big church function
And can I have some writing?
Let me write it out, it's kind of long
(decorator)
Ma'am, just read the lable
Or are you not able?
And no, it's not fresh
Came frozen on a truck last Tuesday
There's no such thing as "butter-whipped" icing
But if freshness is enticing
I have a friend who can help you
He's Duncan Hines and he's on aisle eight
(chorus)
Bake your own damn cake
Or take one from the case
I'll write on what you take
But for a novel buy a damn greeting card
make up your mind
Or pi$$ off, you make my head ache
Bake your own damn cake
Or take one from the case

Excuse me
Can I place an order?
What size? I dunno, a big one
What icing? I dunno he didn't say
What flavor to make it?
I dunno, what do you have?
Make it with roses...no, to girly
Just use boyish colors
And write "Happy Birthday...."
I forgot the name, I'll call and ask
(decorator)
Ma'am, I don't mean to be low
But is there anything you DO know?
And can you be more specific?
I can't help you if you're so damn vague
If I may, I'll make a suggestion
If the flavor is in question
Betty Crocker can help you
She prints the pictures right on the box
(Chorus)
Bake your own damn cake
Or know how you want it made
'Cause if you don't say
I'll make it ugly just to pi$$ you off
Plan your order ahead
Or make it easy on everyone here
Bake your own damn cake
Or know how you want it made

I absolutely LOVED your song! It made me giggle because that is exactly how customers are down to a T. Very few Customers have appreciation for what we do. I definitely give you kudos on the song
