The Basics of Cake Decorating

Cake decorating is among the most popular sugar art forms that employ glazes or decorative items to create visually impressive, edible decorations. In other words, cakes are crafted and shaped in several different ways. They may be decorated with fruit decorations, candies and decorations that are flavored with different ingredients. Alternatively, cakes may be simply molded into three dimensional people, objects and places.

Cakes are no longer just simple brownies or cakes with sprinkles and icing. These days, you will find that cakes are not only for breakfast anymore. Instead, they can also be used as special birthday cakes, wedding cakes, anniversary cakes, holiday cakes and others. The reason why people love cakes so much is that they offer a delicious, attractive and elegant way to present your favorite food.


One very popular method of creating a cake is by using fondant. Fondant is a mixture of water, sugar and vegetable oil, and is commonly used for making decorative items. A wide variety of items are decorated by using fondant, including cakes, cupcakes, mousses, pies, breads, and many others. Fondant has a nice glossy finish and is a lot easier to apply than some of the more traditional methods for baking a cake. Fondant is also a less expensive method of decorating cake items, so even if you don’t have that much money available, you can try to make some cakes with fondant.

Another method of making a cake with fondant is by using a rolling pin and a wooden dowel, which are known as an egg mold. This method works by inserting a dowel that is the same size as the dowel from the mold. Using a rolling pin, you can roll the dowel down on a sheet of wax paper to form a round shape, then insert the mold into the dowel to form a flat bottom.

For cakes that use a combination of fruits, you can also use the buttercream icing. Buttercream icing is made from butter and eggs, and is applied to the cake before it is baked. You may want to use this method for cakes that are already decorated and flavored with fruits. Since it is a fairly cheap way of decorating cakes, it’s easy to do with just a few dollars.

Chocolate ganache is another common technique that is used for decorative cake tops. This method involves the use of fondant and chocolate ganache to decorate cake tops. For this method, you add melted chocolate ganache to the top of a plain cake and then allow it to set.

Another popular method of cake decorating involves decorating with a sponge. This method of cake decorating uses a sponge to fill in a hole on the cake’s top, thus creating a smooth cake decorating effect.

Cake decorating can also take you to other creative places, such as creating a colorful, three dimensional cakes with the use of fondant, decorative items such as chocolate and berries, or even adding a layer of fondant over the top of a plain cake to give it a unique look. If you’re creative, you can have a lot of fun with your cake decorating and achieve a lot of different effects!

Some people like to make their own cake decorating designs by combining fondant and other decorating items. You can make a fondant cake by mixing one part of water and one part of sugar, then spreading this mixture on top of your cake. This type of cake will have a more fluffy texture and can be used for decorating in place of sponge cakes, jellies, or cupcakes.

The best cakes to have decorated are ones that have been decorated well, but are not overly decorated. When you bake a well-done cake, it will have a finished look and it will not look like it was designed with the help of a professional cake decorator. If you like the look of the finished cake, but don’t want to spend all that time creating it, just use the same technique as you used for decorating the cake with fondant.

Cake decorating is a great way to get started with your baking and is certainly worth the time and effort. Take the time to try new techniques, and experiment with the ones you’ve always loved doing!
