A Beginners Guide To Cake Decorating

Cake decorating is perhaps one of the most creative and beautiful sugar arts which uses decorative or icing in order to transform plain white cakes into more visually appealing cakes. Alternatively, simple cakes can also be sculpted and molded to resemble people, places, and objects.

Cakes are one of the easiest kinds of desserts to decorate. There is nothing that can beat the elegance of a well-designed and decorated cake. One thing you should remember though is that cakes can take much longer to bake than some other types of desserts. Therefore, it’s best to start the decoration process a few weeks before you intend to serve your desserts so that you will have plenty of time to finish everything and to ensure the quality of your end result.



One of the best parts about decorating cakes is that they are often shared among several people. In some cases, you may find your cakes being eaten by friends and family in the very same day. As such, you will want to keep in mind that when decorating cakes, it’s important that you take care that the icing doesn’t run all over the cake as this will spoil the look and the feel of the decoration. If you do end up with messy icing, then simply remove it from the cake and discard it. You may also find it helpful to cut back on the number of pieces that you use in order to make sure that the cake is not too crowded.

The first step in cake decorating is to choose a color for your cake. If your decorating endeavor is primarily going to be an edible cake then you will be limited to the colors available in your selection. However, if you plan to use your decorations on cakes that are intended for decorative purposes then you will have many different options available. Your cake decorator may be able to advise you on which colors to use and which ones are more appropriate.

Frosting is often the next step in the cake decorating process. You can choose to use cream, icing, gum paste and even gel. Some people prefer to use a mixture of cream and butter while others opt for a butter cream frosting. For the icing, you should always make sure that you have fresh ingredients available in order to ensure that you get the flavor that you desire.
