Icing Decorating Idea
It's not always about the flavour of the cake, what can really take your cake to a new level by incorporating unique and personalization in the cake decoration. The type of icing used to decorate the cake will dictate what type of design you can do. For example, for a very clean smooth appearance to the cake the best type of icing to use is called Fondant icing. There are advantages and disadvantages to all types of icing from a decorating stand point. Buttercream icing is very easy to work with especially if you are new to decorating cakes or want to decorate with your kids and have it taste fantastic. This type of cake frosting can be used to make a wide variety of cake designs with very few limitations.
