Most people think that baking cakes is challenging, but it is decorating that is more difficult. When decorating a cake, you have to factor in several things, including the cake's texture, design, and flavor. It is crucial to know the starting point of the decoration process. By reading this article, you will gain valuable ideas that will come in handy when decorating delicious works of art.
*After baking, it is absolutely vital to let the cake cool down. Before applying the frosting, you can wait for around 30 minutes.
*Whipped cream frosting can be utilized to make the decorating exercise easier.
*The corners of the cake are more difficult to frost, so it is recommended that you start from there.
*When frosting the sides of the cake, ensure that you use plenty of icing and that your hands are stable. You should begin icing with thin coatings and then proceed to the thick layers.
*Use blobs of icing on the center of the cake, plus in the corners.
*To be on the safe side, make sure that the knife doesn’t come into contact with the cake, only the frosting section.
*While you can apply icing according to your needs, make sure that you don’t mess with the icing already applied.
*By using strokes, you will have an easy time spreading the icing on the cake. But if spreading the icing proves to be a challenge, immerse the knife in hot water for easier spreading.
*After applying the frosting, you can use a fork to style across the top of the cake to produce a lattice effect. Additionally, if you prefer your cake to have swirls around the edges of the cake, a knife will come in handy.
