Decorate Your Home-made Cake

You can decorate the cake using following items.

  • Fondant: To give a neat finish to your cake you can use fondant. It is a little tricky to use correctly but gives an awesome look to your cake. Fondant learning tutorials are available on YouTube which will make it a lot easier for you to learn how to use fondant.
  • Frosting: Frosting is a great way to decorate a cake but is a bit messy to work with but a  simple shape cake will be decorated easily so it wont be much of a problem for you. A video tutorial will help you decorate your cake with frosting.
  • Sugar paste: This will be a perfect choice if you want to make a funky bright coloured cake. A hot environment will have no effect on sugar paste while frosting can loosen up and harm your cake.
