Getting a little tired of listening to the radio or the same old album while you’re cake decorating? We have the perfect remedy!
Whether you’re looking for a pick me up or something a little mellow to work by, we’ve rounded up ten of our favourite songs to listen to when cake decorating. Enjoy!
1. Sweetest Thing – U2 (Spotify / YouTube)
What could be sweeter than a day of cake decorating? If you’re giving our latest tutorial a shot, then stick this on in the background and lose yourself in Bono’s dulcet tones.
2. Cherry Pie – Warrant (Spotify / YouTube)
For those ready to rock! Throw the horns in the air and cut yourself a slice of sweet cherry pie, with this incredibly moreish rock anthem. Does your cake look so good it could make a grown man cry? After listening to this it will.
3. Honey – Moby (Spotify / YouTube)
We reckon the rhythm of this jam is perfect for really getting stuck into anything repetitive, like mixing a ganache or colouring in large areas. In fact, pop it on repeat and you’re likely to have one of your most productive mornings ever…
4. How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) – Marvin Gaye (Spotify / YouTube)
Squeeze a little Motown into your day, with this easy-going love song. An excellent choice if you have a wedding cake to decorate.
5. I Am A Tangerine – Tommy James & the Shondells (Spotify / YouTube)
Let’s take it all the way back to the psychedelic ‘60s. Although it isn’t their best known song, I Am A Tangerine is perfect for a relaxing afternoon of cake décor – all you need is some sunflowers and tie-dye.
6. If I Knew You Were Comin’ I’d’ve Baked A Cake – Eileen Barton (Spotify / YouTube)
The song no list about cake decorating would be complete without. We just can’t help singing along to this truly lovely golden oldie.
7. I Want Candy – The Strangeloves (Spotify / YouTube)
It’s sweet, it’s sunny and it’s the perfect feel-good track. See how long you last before you start dancing around the kitchen…
8. Lady Marmalade – Labelle (Spotify / YouTube)
Get a little of that mocca-chocalata groove going on! You might recognise this song from the film Moulin Rouge, but we have a massive soft spot for the original version.
9. The Candy Man – Sammy Davis Jr (Spotify / YouTube)
‘Soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie…’ now you’re talking! Another goldie oldie, they just don’t make ‘em like this anymore. An easy, breezy song that’s guaranteed to make you smile.
10. Don’t You Want Me – The Human League (Spotify / YouTube)
We’ve all been there. One minute you’re busily decorating your latest beautiful creation, the next you just want to take a great big bite out of…
Resist! When your cake whispers to you ‘don’t you want me baby?’ distract yourself with this electronic new wave ‘80s hit by pop trio, The Human League.
