Do you have any cake decorating tips for beginners?
The method you use to decorate your cake will depend on what ingredients you have chosen to use, and what you have decided to make. If you are making a complicated design, the most important thing to do is to plan what you intend to be doing before you begin. A sketch and a list of things to do will give you a starting point and help to ensure that all your ideas work together, when icing your cake. Always make sure that you allow your cake or baked delights too cool thoroughly before you add any decorations.
Cake experts recommend a three-day timetable, bake your cake on the first day, add fondant or buttercream on the second, and embellish and decorate on the third. Place your cake on a turntable and then use a scraper at a 45-degree angle or a smooth, professional finish on the sides. Store cakes at room temperature, unless they are filled with whipped cream, fruit filling or buttercream. They are best eaten on the day but will store overnight in an airtight container or the refrigerator, depending on the item. Be creative and have fun with your design, decorating cakes should be fun and with these handy tips, your baked delight is bound to be a success!
