I just love baking cakes for my kids for birthday parties or even just for no reason at all. But decorating them? Usually about 1/2 way into it, I am already wishing that I was done! And the kitchen clean-up afterward can be daunting- multiple frosting colors, multiple bags, and tips- it's all a pain to clean up! But with these awesome cake decorating tips and tricks I'm going to up my cake and cupcake game!
I am in love with this fluffy cloud cake idea from Annie's Eats! It looks fairly simple to do, and the fluffy cloud look offers plenty of yummy frosting per slice!
This is a fabulous tutorial from Our Best Bites on how to frost cupcakes– which tips to use, which way to swirl, etc. You'd better believe that I will be referencing this article the next time it's my turn to bake cupcakes!
And I am definitely going to try this recipe for basic chocolate frosting! I have a great vanilla frosting recipe- but not a great homemade chocolate recipe! Thanks Annie's Eats!
And I adore this idea from Bakerella on how to make easy panda mini-cupcakes! (I must confess, I have yet to make cake pops for my kids! I know they would love them, but they seem like so much work to create! Maybe one day this summer I will break down and try it!)
Fantastic Tip Which Cuts Down on Clean Up!
This is definitely a technique for my decorating repertoire…. how to create a no-mess piping bag! I love this idea from Our Best Bites!
