Cake Decorating Ideas: To Dress Up a Cake Beyond The Homemade Look


Texas Monkey website shares some cake decorating ideas when dealing with a crumbling misshaped cake with a few creative options to give it a more appeal.

  • Bake two cakes and set them aside to cool completely

  • Frost the 1st layer of cake. It doesn’t have to look good as the icing will not be visible.

  • Place the next layer of cake on top of the first and frost the whole thing.

  • Take pirouette wafers and press them into the icing around the cake.

  • Tie a ribbon around the cake and place your special element ( theme ) on the top of the cake.

    For Easter: Add a chocolate bunny, green ribbion and a few multi colored jelly beans on top of the strawberries pushed into the top of the cake so the green stem shows. Add blackberries or blueberries for contrast.
