Decorating is something that brings joy and excitement to many peoples lives. Every event needs decorating; Birthdays, Anniversaries and many more, however in the baking industry, decoration is key to EVERYTHING! Think about it. You have a choice between a plain boring mud cake and the same cake but this time with flowers and candles on top. I’d choose the second option too. This brings us to the next point which is that every decoration suits a different type of event. It can be a birthday party, religious event or anything else! Here are some ways to decorate cakes and cupcakes.
To begin with we’ll be looking at ways to decorates cakes which are often used in important events and need to be decorated with something special. I’m talking about something majestic and rich, like roasted nuts! Or chocolate drip! Or flowers! They all sound pretty fancy, don’t they? All these decorations will add colour and life to your cake. For example, one good way to decorate a cake using simple items is by glazing chocolate over the top and finishing with strawberries as seen on our chocolate strawberry cake. This combination creates a very beautiful colour tone. Some other simple but beautiful decorations are flower bunches or candies which can really bring colour and spirit to your cake. An example of this is seen on the layered Persian love cake.
Lastly, some tips on how to decorate cupcakes and some recommended ingredients to decorate with. Since cupcakes are much smaller than cakes it is best to decorate them with more solid items such as chocolate cubes or fresh fruit pieces instead of crushed nuts or chocolate glaze/drip. You can also use items such as fresh berries, buttercream frosting or even dried up rosebud!
