Pipe Don’t Paint’s Story


A cake decorator for 30 years and an award winning, qualified pastry chef. Karen’s initial business, Kakes by Karen is well known throughout Perth, WA for her beautiful special occasion cakes. 


Deco Magic was developed in 2011, from Karen’s passion for cake decorating, further driven to look for an easier and quicker way to produce the most beautiful and intricate decorations and designs for cakes with 100% edible metallic colours. Originally a clear gel that could be mixed with a variety of metallic colours that could be piped directly onto cakes. 


Given that double handling equates to time and money within the banking/confectionary industry, Karen successfully created a one-step approach to using metallics that are 100% edible. Deco Magic is efficient in achieving the overall desired designs for the greater baking/confectionary industries.
