Tips For Beginners

Cake decorating is a relatively simple art to learn, but some people find it daunting to begin this activity. If you have decided to learn cake decorating there are a number of things you should take into consideration before you start.

There are five basic tips for learning cake decorating that range from knowing your equipment to making the right decisions. Cake decorating can be a fun activity to learn and once you’ve mastered the first few steps you’ll find that the time you spend in the kitchen is more enjoyable and that you enjoy your work more. Cake decorating can also help develop creative skills as well as the ability to work with different flavours and colours. The most important tip is to be confident that you will enjoy your work and the skills that you gain.



Having the right tools and cake decorating supplies is very important. If you don’t already have these items, it’s time to get them. Cake decorators usually use a number of tools to assist in their work including cookie cutters, spatulas, and decorative items. You also need to get yourself some basic decoration items such as fondant, piping bags, piping tools and a piping bag. You can purchase or make these items at a local store but it is much easier to go online to find the supplies you need for the perfect cake decorating experience.

Decorating the cake is much easier if you have the right icing. The icing that is used on a cake is called icing and it is made up of a mixture of water, fats and sugar. The most popular icing is white but it can also be coloured depending on the recipe you’re using.

It is very important to be consistent with your icing so that you get the desired result every time. Another tip is to use a mixing bowl that you won’t use all the time. If you use a mixing bowl that you’ll use everyday, it may result in a different consistency to the icing that you are applying so you may not get the same results every time.

Once you have your icing and decorator’s arsenal, you can begin to look at different ideas for how to apply your icing and decorate your cake. One of the most common techniques is to add a border to the cake’s outline and make a border from the icing so that it can then be added to the cake when it is cooled.

Another simple way of making a border is to cut out circles and use fondant to fill in the gaps. If your circles are smaller, use smaller sized fondant. When the icing is set, add a little of it to the circles and fill in the spaces between. For larger shapes, use more icing and fill in the spaces. If you have small shapes you can use fondant with decorative borders between the layers to create the borders.

Another tip for beginners is to decorate with your icing and decorate your cake so that it is easier to decorate without using your tools and piping bags. Start with an outline and work your way through using only the icing as a guide.

Another tip is to learn different types of icing and their applications. You can apply white icing to different colours and different designs. You can even decorate a plain cake by applying different designs to the white icing. White icing can be used to dress up chocolate brown cakes, but it can also be used to create different patterns on other types of cakes.
