Cake Decorating Tips to Know!

Updated: Aug 30, 2019

How to make your baked creations look as good as they taste in these cakes.

Ensure your icing is sufficiently stiff for the piping process – otherwise, your rosettes, leaves or basket-weave design will literally collapse. Try practicing these designs first and watch for the detail to disappear and become smooth.If ruffling piping is creating the border at the bottom of your cake, you should make sure that the more weighted section of the design sits against the cake to veil it; the “ruffle” will sit on the outside. When swags are piped on an iced cake, always size around it with a tape measure and make notations as to precisely where each swag should start and finish; this ensures even spacing.

Good Luck!
