Edible Art


Cake decorating can be way-intimidating (have you ever attempted to wield a piping bag?)—and staring at a blank sheet cake makes my head spin with the possibilities. I love love love this idea from Bakerella—when you are in need of inspiration, take it from your kids. Lay wax paper over your child’s drawing and use candy writers as markers to trace their doodles and designs. Place the tray of cake ornaments in the freezer to harden, and voila! Insta-masterpiece. Totally amazing. Totally genius.

Thanks, Crafty Crow, for the link!

(and p.s…Love the blue sky cake tier. Brilliant touch!)

    Buttercream transfers and piping gel transfers are also easy for beginners. I suggest the basic Wilton class at your local craft store to fine tune skills and learn tips and tricks for home bakers. It’s a four week, one night a week class (a great mom’s night out) course for less than $35 for the whole month. I teach lots of moms every week how to make their children’s cake fantasies come to life in a realistic manner using everything from icing to fruit rollups.
