As everyone loves to make DIY cards, DIY presents, how about a DIY cake for your love ones too? Icing Room provide you the playground to decorate your own cake. The cakes and icing cream and icing sweets are provided to you when you made a purchase for the 4", 6" and 8" cake which comes in two flavours which are vanilla and blackforest.

Personally, I like the idea of decorating my own cake because I have the freedom of writing and drawing whatever I want. However, when you do it for the first time, I recommend that you had an idea in mind of what you would like to design. Because once the icing cream touches the cake, there is no way you can erase it. And also you cannot take too long to decorate the cake as the icing would melt into a more diluted form which would mess up your cake decorations. Practice makes perfect, its the joy of designing the cake together with your love or your kids together and enjoying the cake together.

And their cake are very soft and spongy! The fruits that they used in the cake are fresh and they even have grapes in the cake! It's definitely worth your money to satisfy your taste buds and your creativity!

Self-decorated cakes from The Icing Room are easily recognizable by their brightly coloured icing cream. I used to think that it is a pretty innovative idea to DIY a cake for someone. In fact, I enjoyed my first experience in designing a cake with my friends. I also felt that it doubled up as a little kitchen cum playground for the kids whom, as I had observed, enjoyed doodling on the cakes.

Beyond ‘fulfilling a child’s dream’, to quote from their chef, I feel that the novelty has worn out because it's overused. The concept has been around for a number of years, however, the icing, fondants and other decors have not changed or improved. Even if you make an effort to make the cake look beautiful, it doesn't look very much different from another personalized cake from The Icing Room. Besides, the cake was really average in taste.

I would recommend skipping the Design-In-Yourself concept altogether, and have a look at their ready-made cakes and pastries. I particularly like the exotic flavours on their menu, such as Earl Choco (earl grey tea flavoured chocolate cake plus blueberry macaroons). My favourite has got to be Taro Mist, which is essentially a yam mousse cake. Taro flavours are all the rage now and I hardly see taro cakes around. Highly recommended for yam lovers!

I believe The Icing Room is one of the widely chosen places for creative people to DIY birthday cakes for their friends and family members.
Personally, I find that their prices are a little steep, but will be worth it if you are one that is looking at some interactive fun with friends to design an "one and only" cake..

My friend and I tried out their service last year, as part of a birthday preparation for a dear friend of ours. Well, we got the smallest size cake (that cost us less than $13) and we tried our best to "squeeze" in our decorations.
Honestly, it wasn't as easy as it seemed! We tried hard in controlling our trembling hands as any wrong move will result in a terrible mess. (We did mess up once and my friend had to pick those "wrong" pieces out using toothpick bit by bit!)
(How is it that some others are able to create such a professional-looking cake?!)

Nonetheless, we still had fun DIY-ing the cake. It gives a personal touch to it as our "final product" is a feature of our efforts. Even though it was quite an, erm, ugly decoration, but its the thought that counts!
