Cake Decorating Ideas – That are Easy as Pie

Cake decorating thoughts don’t have to be complicated and hard to be fantastic.

Before applying the artistry of your favorite cake decorating thoughts, you will most likely need a smooth canvas. Whether you plot to adorn your cake with bouquets of roses or a colorful picture made with stencils and cake spray paint, a nice smooth icing adds professionalism as well as making it simpler to decorate.

Two brilliant choices for your canvas are buttercream icing and the rolled Marshmallow Fondant from “Cake Decorating Made Simple!”

The fluffy, peaked frostings that most of us use on our first cakes before moving on to smooth icings are fantastic for simple cake decorating thoughts. You can make a nice dessert for your family with nothing more than a fantastic 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.

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

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

For example, here’s a fantastic cake decorating thought that we found and have since added our own thoughts to. That’s another thing about looking at others cake decorating thoughts. 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 Small Star” themed cake. Having iced stars on your cake would be perfect, yes?

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

1. Use a cookie cutter to make a pattern on your cake that’s simple to trace. (This could be one large pattern or several smaller ones forming a balanced design on your cake.)

2. Gently press the cookie cutter into the smooth 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 outline of each of the stars.

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

a. Make the stars twinkle with some coloring dust.

b. Fill each star in with icing gel.

c. Make 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 supply store should yield a large array of cookie cutters from which to choose, including everything from cute baby animals to holiday themes such as Jack o’ lanterns and Santa’s.

Here’s another cake decorating thought: Dark colored cakes that are moist enough 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!
