Easy Cake Decorating Ideas That Make your Cake Look More Appealing

Easy cake decorating ideas are on the web and in library books. You see, when you bake a cake it looks very plain. It is the icing of the cake looks more appealing. You can make your otherwise plain looking cake into a work of art. Even though sometimes cake decorating looks like a tough job some very easy cake decorating ideas can help to make the transformation.

The basic part of the cake decoration is the icing. You can make the icing at home but for that you need to have practice. It is easier to buy the icing from the market. Apart from the ready made icing, you get cake decorating kits as well. In the kit you get icing bag. Different shaped tips that come with the kit makes it easier to draw flowers or some design.

With the use of different shaped tips you can decorate the cake by creating different patterns. If you use different colors or sprinkle sugar granule colored with food colors the cake will look good and different.

With the help of stencils you can write a message on the cake or can get a ready made message and just stick it on the cake.

A birthday cake with a loving message and some icing flowers and candle can make the birthday boy/girl feel very special. The happiness that you see on the face of your kid makes all the effort and time spent on decorating the cake makes it worth it.

For easy cake decorating ideas for kid's party, all you have to do is try and look at the world from your kid's eyes. The power of imagination can create many beautiful things. All you have to do is to translate them on the cake.

With the help of different food colors, the ready made edible flowers, you can create anything you want on the cake. The cake becomes a creation of art. You can use different colored candies. You can use different types of icings. You can decorate the cake with royal icing. You can draw the border on the cake and spread some jam in the middle and on the top of that place some candy ducks. The kids will love it.

Another thing you can try out is bake a large flat cake beforehand. Cut that cake into small squares. Allow your kids to paint them in different color paste that you have made using icing sugar and food colors. After they are done make it into a quilt. Kids will enjoy the experience.

Using fondant is another easy way to decorate the cake. It is icing sugar dough which can be easily manipulated. You can drape it over the cake and achieve a flawless finish.

You can use white icing sugar for the border and sprinkle chocolate shaves on the top to achieve a dramatic effect.

If you want the colors to hold then use cane sugar as it has the ability to hold the colors longer than the beet root sugar.

You can decorate your cake with fresh fruits as well. You can place a piece of pineapple on the cake and place a cherry on it. It looks good and taste delicious as well.

Easy cake decorating ideas are really easy provided you have correct tools with you.

When decorating a cake, what is the best way to get the icing completely smooth?

I'm teaching myself cake decorating and this is my first cake.

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/8259/myfirstcake.jpg

I want a smoother look and the spatula just can't do it. Any tips or ideas?

THANKS GUYS!
I do have a large metal spatula.

have a tall glass of warm water and dip your spatula in the water to smooth the icing on the cake. If some icing does transfer to the spatula, wipe it with a paper towel and dip the spatula again.

Wet spatula does more to smooth butter cream than anything else.
