Commie's Cupcakes is
I’m Amber Comadira-Smith (aka Commie), the founder of Commie’s Cupcakes.
My cake decorating and cupcake journey started in 2013. (It’s now grown to an obsession, I won’t lie!). As a graphic designer, I was searching for another creative outlet. I stumbled upon the TV show, The Great Australian Bake Off, just as its cupcake episode aired. The constants were creating the most colourful, edible works of art I had ever seen. I was hooked.
I started with online cake decorating classes and local cake decorating classes, fine-tuning my cupcake decorating ideas. From cupcake flavours to cupcake icing decorations, I wanted to know it all.
In late 2015, I launched Commie’s Cupcakes. Some people think that cupcakes are just for beginners, but for me, only a small working space (a 67mm diameter topper to be exact!) presents its own set of challenges that you don’t find with other novelty cakes.
I’m not only passionate about cupcakes, but I’m passionate about helping people succeed
with professional cake decorating so they can become the master cake maker
and decorator they’ve always wanted to be.
Not only do I focus on improving your technical cake skills, but I also give you an insight into my design expertise to help elevate your cake work. Once you learn the little-known cake decorating design secrets, you’ll never look back (and they’re super simple once you know them, I promise!).
Professional cake decorating really can be a piece of cake.
