Cake decorating is perhaps one of the most popular sugar arts and uses several edible decorative items and/or frosting or icing to create aesthetically interesting cakes. Also, cakes can also be sculpted and molded into recognizable people, places, objects and others.
There are some basics tools you will need to learn the art of making cakes. To start, you’ll need a mix of white and colored fondant. White fondant is used for most cakes, while brown and green tend to be used more for decorating. You’ll also need a pan, a set of measuring cups, and a measuring spoon. Cake pans come in a variety of sizes and styles, so it will make the decorating process easier on yourself if you have a specific type of pan you’re looking for.
One of the most basic tools when it comes to decorating cakes is the knife, which is generally the flat part of a knife blade. You can use a number of different types of knives to decorate your cakes: plain, serrated, and decorated. The plainest knife is made up of a dull blade with straight edges, and this is often the one most people use. The serrated type is similar to a dull knife but has serrations on both sides of the blade.
If you’re going to be decorating cakes with a serrated blade, make sure the flat portion of the blade is slightly rounded. The rounded flat portion is a little more comfortable to use when you’re using the knife on the cake. Another option is a cake knife that has a small hook on one end, instead of a straight blade.
Another essential tool for decorating cakes is a decorating palette. Palettes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you’ll want to choose the right size and shape for the cake you want to decorate. As far as decorating tools go, this may seem like quite a few, but you should know that there are a couple more that you may use while you’re making your first cake.
A long metal spatula is perfect for mixing your batter, spreading it, and even scraping your cake from underneath to give you room to work on it. Spatulas come in a variety of shapes and sizes as well. If you can’t afford a full-sized palette, simply purchase a plastic one. These are inexpensive and can make your life much easier by holding all the ingredients at one time. and keeping your hands free when you are cutting or decorating your cake.
If you don’t want to spend as much money as you would like, you can buy a cookie sheet and place it over the top of your cake decorator’s palette. This way, you won’t have to scrape the cake over your cookie sheet. If you don’t like cookie sheets, you can buy an inflatable cake scraper that has wheels. It’s much cheaper than using a palette and will save you time. A smaller palette, such as those available online, will fit perfectly into your decorator’s kit.
Most kits come with everything that you need to get started decorating cakes, including the tools described above, so don’t worry too much about buying a lot of cake decorator’s kits. You can purchase them individually as well if you wish or build them into your decorator’s kit.
When you purchase decorator’s kits, be sure to check to see how much room you need. If you are new to decorating cakes, it can be very stressful to have to make a decision about where to put a container or stand. The best way to determine how much room you need is to take measurements of the area you plan to use for your cake. Also take into consideration the number of people you plan to decorate the cake with, as they will need different amounts of room.
When you are putting the cake together, use the proper tools to ensure your decorating process goes smoothly. For example, if you’re using a stick on decorating tool, it is best to start at the very top of the cake and work your way down.
Your most important cake decorator’s tools include a buttercream icing spatula, a knife, and a spatula. If you are new to decorating cakes, and you’re planning to add decorations, be sure to include all of the equipment you need before starting your decorating efforts.
