March 2019 Product Review: Cake Sketching Templates by Avalon Cakes

This month, we had the chance to try the amazing Cake Sketching Templates by Avalon Cakes!

Sketching designs for your clients has never been simpler – these templates help you create clean and expert tiered cakes in minutes! Each tier template has adjustable heights allowing you to quickly and easily sketch true to life scale drawings without a ruler or continuously erasing your work.

There are currently four Cake Sketching Template styles available: round, square, hexagon and elements. The elements template offers a way to effortlessly add decorative details to your sketches such as flowers, leaves, bows, cake stands and more!

We were very impressed with the quality of the templates overall. They’re made from a strong, high-quality, transparent plastic which enables you to constantly see where you’re drawing on the paper. The additional holes on the side make them ideal for adding to folders for on the go consultations and easy storage.

We decided to try sketching a couple of cakes, one with straightforward wedding style tiers and the other a basic party style cake. Starting from the top tier, we chose a size and depth from the round template and followed the shape to draw a perfectly proportioned 6×6” round tier. We really love the simplicity of this product! Next, we chose the size for our other tiers and continued until we had drawn the entire cake, including the cake board, in only a couple of minutes.

Moving onto the elements template, we chose a cake stand from the large cake stand bases section and added to the base of our design. From here, you can add colour, more detail from the elements template or your own freehand illustrations, the possibilities are endless!

For our second design, we took the square templates and drew out the tiers for our party cake design. Using the elements pack again, we were able to swiftly add a bow and polka dots which were perfectly aligned and the same size! After adding some colour, the design was ready in just a few minutes!

Overall, we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the Cake Sketching Templates by Avalon Cakes. They’re a huge time saver which help you directly produce polished and professional standard cake sketches. They’re a fantastic product to work with and in our opinion, an essential tool for cake decorators! Highly recommended!
