Cake Decorating Tips
You don’t have to be a master baker to make your cake the star of the show. Try these genius cake decorating hacks:
- For an impressive lace design, place a piece of lace atop an un-iced cake and sprinkle it with powdered sugar through a sieve. Remove the lace to reveal a beautifully intricate pattern.
- Struggling with writing letters in icing? Use a toothpick to dot the letters into the icing before piping out the letters one dot at a time.
- Two words: fresh flowers.
