Cake Decorating Themes
Everyone seems to​ enjoy cakes that are baked at​ home, it​ is​ a​ wonderful surprise on​ special occasions .​
When you​ are the one bringing the cake, you​ probably will want the cake decoration​ to​ stand​ out, and​ look a​ bit more professional than those you​ make for​ your​ family at​ home .​
I​ have put together a​ few ideas you​ may want to​ try.
Cake Decorating Themes
- Fun and​ activity: These cakes are full of​ color and​ whimsical design .​
The use of​ different shapes, Balloons, circles, stars, clouds, and​ other interesting designs will help to​ make your​ cake decorating the talk of​ the party .​
With the use of​ animal crackers, you​ could make a​ zoo or​ farm cake .​
your​ imagination​ can take you​ anywhere.
- Say it​ With Flowers: The use of​ floral patterns in​ soft shades, are perfect for​ cake decorating .​
The addition​ of​ a​ few green leaves make this​ type of​ cake decoration​ an​ excellent choice for​ any special occasion​ .​
Flowers are great on​ wedding cakes, birthday cakes, mothers day cakes, and​ for​ other happy celebrations.
- a​ Little Romance: Romantic cake decorating is​ perfect for​ sweethearts day, valentines day, a​ birthday for​ a​ husband​ or​ wife, or​ a​ wedding anniversary .​
you​ can make any color frosting, including the favorite of​ the person​ or​ people you​ are baking the cake for​ .​
you​ can add hearts, cupids, or​ anything that will remind the guests what the celebration​ is​ about .​
Use your​ imagination​ and​ make it​ a​ little jazzy without going overboard .​
Just a​ bit of​ glitter or​ candies that sparkle should do the trick.
- What's Up Doc: Younger children (and​ some that are over 90) love cartoon​ characters as​ much as​ they love cake .​
this​ is​ why it​ is​ a​ great idea to​ combine both when decorating a​ cake for​ the birthday of​ someone who loves these whimsical critters .​
you​ can either draw them in​ icing and​ color them in, or​ use molds and​ fondant to​ make the characters .​
After they are made, they can be colored before they are placed on​ the cake .​
So invite Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Taz, Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Garfield, Donald Duck, or​ any of​ the many cartoon​ characters that have stolen our hearts and​ funny bones, and​ are doing the same to​ our children, to​ the party.
There are some supplies that are essential when you​ are thinking about cake decorating, these are:
- a​ professional icing smoother or​ thin​ metal spatula .​
this​ tool will help you​ to​ cover your​ decorated cake with an​ even layer of​ icing, and​ to​ make the frosting very smooth so that it​ can be decorated .​
this​ will make the cake look as​ if​ a​ pro did it .​

- The use of​ decoration​ Molds is​ a​ very easy way to​ make figures and​ objects to​ use in​ cake decorating .​
you​ will probably want to​ start with the basic shapes like circles, squares, or​ triangles, until you​ are sure of​ how to​ perfect the process .​
you​ can move from that to​ flowers, numbers, and​ characters .​
Some molds also have text so you​ can add a​ message.
- Icing bags are an​ absolute essential if​ you​ want to​ do any type of​ cake decorating .​
Once you​ get the hang of​ it, you​ will be able to​ use it​ as​ you​ would an​ ink pen, except it​ is​ held with both hands .​
One hand​ is​ used to​ apply steady pressure on​ the upper part of​ the bag, while the other guides the tip to​ make the decorations.
- The use of​ frosting flowers that are already made for​ you​ is​ a​ less time consuming way to​ add beauty to​ your​ cake decorating.
- Edible glitter and​ colorful sprinkles are a​ great way to​ spruce up your​ cake decorating design .​
These small additions could be just the thing to​ give your​ cake that finishing touch.
- Edible color sprays are quite easy to​ use, especially when you​ are using a​ template .​
It can be the difference between a​ cake decoration​ that is​ blah, to​ one that has everyone complimenting you​ on​ your​ artistic ability.
- you​ can also print out edible photographs of​ the graduate, that fish that almost got away, or​ a​ wedding photo of​ the bride and​ groom, the way they looked when they were married to​ place on​ their 50th anniversary cake .​
The paper these edible images are printed on​ is​ also edible, so you​ can place the whole thing on​ the cake.
A cake stand​ will make your​ creation​ stand​ out, especially a​ glass stand.
