Cake Decorations

Collection of cake decorating recipesjump to the recipes

It's the little touches that can take a cake from basic to beautiful. You don't need to be a pastry chef to make a beautiful dessert. With a few simple ingredients (and sometimes a little patience) you can add that little extra step that will make your cakes stand out.

Candied flowers, chocolate leaves, colored sugar, tinted coconut, and even molded chocolate shapes can all be added to even the simplest of cake recipes to give them extra character. These cake decorations can be added to nearly any kind of cake or cupcake, from birthdays to graduations to any occasion.
