Tips for Making a Baby Shower Cake Yourself:
Are you planning to make the baby shower cake yourself? It’s a great way to save money and get creative and with just a few tips, it actually can be done even if you’ve never made a decorated cake before.
Let’s get into some tips that will help.
Tips for piping on cakes:
If you want to write (pipe) words or sayings on cakes, here are a few tips:
Use a toothpick to pre-write it out onto your iced cake. That will serve as a guide. If you mess up, you can always smooth over it with an icing smoother and write it again.
Start piping the middle letters. If you do this, you’ll know the words will be centered and that you won’t run out of space.
Don’t fill the piping bag super full. That will make it harder to push out the icing and can make your hands shake which could affect the writing and design.
If you mess up, chill the cake really well, then use a toothpick to remove the mistake. Buttercream piping is easier to remove if it’s very cold.
Tips for piping flowers and borders:
Now, if you want to pipe easy flower designs and borders, here are a couple of links to tutorials that can help you do that, even if you’ve never piped frosting before:
