Easy Cake Decorating Idea

Easy Cake Decorating Idea | Cake Decorating | Scoop.it

Easy and fun cake design.

Krisha Wyatt's insight:

I choose to add this article to my collection of scoop its because  I have never seen a cake like this before and not only was I fascinated but I was inspired to try and make one of my own! Although the caption of this article says easy cake decorating idea, this looks like quite the challenge. The outside of the cake seems easy enough, but the inside is where things get a little tricky. After looking on this site, I saw that the inside had been torted into three separate sections! Each section there had been a different color of dye added to the batter. I had never even heard of this idea until I read this article! I'm so glad I did because this is such a cool creative idea. This website is definetly a valuable piece of research for my project, because it gave me so many ideas for my next cake designs. I won't be drawing a blank anymore!

Here is the second part of my tutorial on how to make a gum paste peony. In this tutorial you will end up with a finished gum paste peony dusted with powdered colors.
Krisha Wyatt's insight:

This is just the second half of making gum paste peonies that I mentioned earlier. This was very interesting to read about, I can't wait to try this on my oun. Each petal needs to be shapped with a gum paste cutter (it looks just like a cookie cutter but much smaller) and dried seperatly. I never would have guessed that you would dry them separately!

Of all the mouth-watering Christmas desserts we dream about for the 364 days leading up to Dec. 25, fruit cake is not high on the list.

Via Thomas Faltin
Krisha Wyatt's insight:

This idea sounds so great, I have to try this. These fruit cake pops are not so much cake as they are a bite sized holiday treat, but I must try this idea. The basic idea in this recipe is vanilla icecream squares covered with fruit, nuts, spices, coconut shavings, and dipped in caramel. It is supposed to be according to the article, better than fruit cake and not nearly as hard as a hokey puck, which most fruit cakes seem to turn out to be these days.

Krisha Wyatt's insight:

I had no idea you could make sugar diamonds! This article was so interesting to read because it talked about how easily the appearance of these little jewels can get damaged. Unlike a real  diamond, sugar diamonds are extremely  fragile. They are also every sensitive to most temperatures, and mist over easily. The article suggest to avoid the diamonds misting over, place them on your cake at the last possible second as the finishing touch.
