Cake Decorating Ideas - That are Easy as Pie

Cake Decorating Ideas - That are Easy as Pie

Cake decorating ideas don't have to be complex and difficult to be great.

Before applying the artistry of your favorite cake decorating ideas, you will most likely need a flat canvas. Whether you plan to adorn your cake with bouquets of roses or a colorful photo created with stencils and cake spray paint, a nice flat icing adds professionalism as well as making it easier to decorate.

Cake Ideas

Two excellent choices for your canvas are buttercream icing and the rolled Marshmallow Fondant from "Cake Decorating Made Easy!"

The fluffy, peaked frostings that most of us use on our first cakes before inviting on to flat icings are great for easy cake decorating ideas. You can make a nice sweetmeat for your house with nothing more than a great cake recipe, a yummy, homemade frosting, and a sprinkling of shaved chocolate, grated coconut, finely chopped nuts, candied red hearts, gumdrops or colorful candied sprinkles.

However, with a smoothly iced cake, you have a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a work of art with your cake decorating ideas!

Some of the best places for seeing great cake decorating ideas are cake decorating forums and cake decorating membership sites where you can glean ideas from hobbyists and pros alike, as well as share your own ideas.

For example, here's a great cake decorating idea that we found and have since added our own ideas to. That's other thing about seeing at others cake decorating ideas. They spark your imagination and pretty soon you have your own bag of tricks!

Cookie Cutters for Cake Decorating

Here's how it works. Let's say you are making a congratulations cake or a baby shower "Twinkle, Twinkle wee Star" themed cake. Having iced stars on your cake would be perfect, yes?

However, no matter how steady your hand is, it's pretty difficult to draw stars with a decorating bag (some of us have a hard sufficient time on paper!). Stencils are one option, but if you don't want to mess colse to with stencils, try this cake decorating idea we found:

1. Use a cookie cutter to make a pattern on your cake that's easy to trace. (This could be one large pattern or some smaller ones forming a balanced form on your cake.)

2. moderately press the cookie cutter into the flat icing. Lift up, and there's your pattern waiting to be traced!

3. Then fit your icing bag with a small round tip (like you'd use for writing the message) and trace the shape of each of the stars.

4. Finally, leave as is, or try one of these decorating ideas:

a. Make the stars twinkle with some coloring dust.

b. Fill each star in with icing gel.

c. originate silver stars by filling them in with cake decorating silver beads.

d. Fit your icing bag with the star tip (because it's the best one for filling in pictures quickly) and color your stars.

The plastic cookie cutters that make the detailed impressions, such as the Christmas Santa, will give you even more of a pattern to play with. A visit to a craft store or baking contribute store should yield a large array of cookie cutters from which to choose, together with all things from cute baby animals to holiday themes such as Jack o' lanterns and Santa's.

Here's other cake decorating idea: Dark colored cakes that are moist sufficient not to need icing, such as fruitcakes, can be simply decorated with some confectioners' (powdered) sugar sprinkled over a stencil (or doily). At Christmas time, try snowflake stencils!
