Anyone who is a pastry chef or cake decorator read here?

I want to be a cake decorator. I live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. What is the difference between a cake decorator and a pastry chef? Is there an apprenticeship for a cake decorator or should I do an apprenticeship as a pastry chef and just look for work in bakery's that specialize in cake decorating? How long is a pastry chef apprenticeship? Do I have to do a pre apprenticeship?

They can also do professional courses to obtain a position in a good restaurant.
