How To Decorate Your Cake

Decorating cakes is fun and very easy to do, but it can be hard at first when you do not know the basics. If you are one of those people who loves cakes but do not really have the time to make your own, you can look into buying cakes from a bakery. You will be able to have cake decorating in the comfort of your home.

Cakes come in a wide variety of styles. You can even find them in all kinds of themes. Some of the themes that are common are fairy tales, wedding and anniversary, nature, animals, and many others. You can go online and find cake decorating sites to see what other people have made or ideas for cakes.



The basic tools for cake decorating are a cookie sheet and two bowls. A cookie sheet can be found in most bakeries, and it will save you time. One bowl has the sugar and the other contains the flour.

It is a good idea to make your own icing and frosting. All you need is a box of icing bags, a small bowl, and some white food coloring. You will need to mix the food coloring with the water to make your icing.

This process can take a little bit of time, but it is well worth the extra effort. When you get the hang of this, it will seem like an easy task and you will just enjoy the work that you do.

For the icing, you will want to use two types of icing. First you will need to start out by using milk or cream. Next you will want to use a white icing to finish off your cake.

To use the milk or cream icing, you will want to use an icing bag. There are many different designs and colors to choose from. Once you have found the right design and color, place it on the cake using the tip of the bag. Then use a spatula to apply it around the outside of the cake.

Once you have the top done, you can work on the sides of the cake. Then you can begin on the bottom and begin to decorate.

You may also want to use an icing bag for the decorating of the flowers and other decorations. These designs will be seen much better when decorated with colored icing.
