Cake decorating is among the most popular sugar arts which uses decorating tools and decorative items to create plain, decorated cakes more aesthetically appealing. Alternatively, plain cakes can also be made into realistic shapes, sculpted and molded to resemble various 3-D objects, characters and people.
Decorative objects can include but are not limited to, flowers, leaves, fruits, animals, figurines, insects, trees, cars, motorcycles, boats and airplanes. The decorator may use various materials to craft their decor. These can range from fondant to fondant and icing to icing, and they can use any of these as a base for their decorative work.
Cake decorators are usually asked to choose a style that fits the theme of the wedding. Some examples are round cakes with floral accents, cakes that have the theme of a holiday such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Halloween and so on. A cake decorator can use various types of decor to create a unique cake that will stand out from the others.
There are a variety of decorations that can add flair to the cake by using decorative objects. The main decoration tools include but are not limited to: edible decorating supplies, piping bags, and cookie cutters. A cake decorator can use any decorative tool and mix it up in order to achieve a unique effect.
Edible decorations are edible items that can be added to a cake. Examples of edible decorations include candies, fondants and chocolates. These can be used as a base for more decorative work, including decorating the icing around the edges and top of the cake or using them as a centerpiece for the cake.
One of the main advantages to edible decoration is that it can be changed and re-decorated as the mood takes a turn. For example, if the party or event is going to be more romantic than the traditional birthday party, the edible decoration can be transformed into a romantic centerpiece.
Another advantage to edible decorations is that they can change as the theme of the party or event changes. If the theme is going to be that of an outdoor wedding, for instance, the edible decoration may not be suitable for a summertime wedding. Cake decorators can use different edible decorations if they decide that a desert is necessary.
Many people enjoy the challenge of edible decoration. Some even like the challenge of learning to bake their own cakes. There are many books available on the internet or in bookstores that teach individuals how to bake cakes.
One of the things that make edible decoration exciting is that it can be done in advance. Many people enjoy making a few decorations and having them sent to the venue of the occasion. This allows for a surprise at the actual event.
The other reason edible decorations are fun is that they can be used for a variety of reasons besides a cake. For instance, edible decorations can be placed on a cake to make it look like a small animal or flower.
Some edible decorations can also be used for other types of decorations besides a cake. For example, edible decorations can be used to create a centerpiece for a bouquet of flowers. They can also be used to decorate cupcakes.
Edible decorations also are great for a baby shower. By making a small arrangement of candies in the shape of baby items and placing them in a cupcake box, a decorated cupcake can create a wonderful centerpiece. The baby shower guests can take the cupcakes home with them on their birthdays.
There are also edible decorations that can be made to look like cookies, candy and other cookies. In this way, the host can offer the guests a treat to take home.
