Decorating a cake allows you to showcase your creativity. From the colors that you use in the frosting to the final details that you put on the top of the cake, you need a few tools to help with your designs. Most cake decorating sets include at least the minimal supplies that you need to get started.
You’re going to need a few decorating bags for the frosting and other soft substances that you use on your cakes. You can put pastry cream in the bags as well as pudding or jelly. The bag makes it easier to apply the product just where you want it by using a tip on the end. Writing and making detailed decorations, such as flowers, are only two of the things that you can easily do with a disposable bag.
When you look at cake decorating sets, you’ll usually see that they include a variety of colors. These come in liquid form as well as gels and pastes. The type of product that you use will usually depend on what the color is being added to as you don’t want to add a paste to smooth frosting because it can make the frosting harder to apply to the cake.
You can complete your cake with some of the embellishments that are included in your set. There are often numerous colors of sprinkles, pearls, and sugar that you can get in your set. You can also find separate colors as well. Keep in mind that some of the decorations that you can use tend to allow colors to blend together if they become moist or if they begin to melt. Fondant is an option to consider if you want a solid base on your cake for decorating in almost any way possible.
