Decorating cakes is a great hobby to learn, enjoy and unleash your creativity, and it is also a great skill that can make good money for you. Whether they are birthday cakes or wedding cakes, or cakes for your kids, they all demand that unique and appealing cake decoration to make the celebration more complete, but you don’t always have to rely on the chefs, you can actually learn some easy cake decorating ideas.
Of course, the beauty of the cake is first seen on its surface, although it does not mean you have to forget about the taste – having the perfect taste for your cake plus an amazing and impressive decoration will truly make the receiver happier, whatever the occasion may be.
There are many ways you can decorate a cake, but before you start with it, it is important to learn a few things about cake decoration. Make sure you know what type pf frosting that you cake would have and make sure they work with the temperature where you will be bringing the cake as well. If you are going to decorate a wedding cake or any cake for an outdoor party on a hot summer day, you may want to avoid using whipped cream for your frostings as this may melt upon exposure to the sun. Of course, you don’t want that to happen to your creation.
To help you with some details, here are some easy cake decorating ideas and tips you can use.
– Identify a theme and design of your cake. It helps to make a draft out of your design to make less room for errors. If it is for a kid, then you might want to think about what the kid likes such as a favorite cartoon character, a playhouse design, or some sports or musical instruments that the kid likes. Same with adults too – if you are decorating a cake for your boss or your mom or your husband, it is a good idea to start with their likes and interests.
For adults, you can also customize your decoration according to the receiver’s interests, as well as the occasion but you can also explore other ways such as designing naughty and funny cakes that will send everyone in the room to laughter. Wedding cakes on the other hand are more formal and elegant.
One of the easy cake decorating ideas you can make use is to experiment the different frostings for your cake. If you want elegantly made cakes like those for weddings, then go ahead and coat your wedding cake with fondant icing and decorate it with buttercream or royal icing. You can also add edible real flowers, some 3D figures that are also made of icing, ribbons, butterflies and other structures that can enhance its design.
Usually, you can also make decorative snail trials, lacework, monograms, and even photos of the receiver.
