One of the most commonly used type of icing or filling, buttercream is a robust and longer lasting frosting as compared to whipped cream. Since it’s much more versatile than a ganache coating, you have more room to play around with it. So with its versatility and durability, I find it a lot easier to work with when it comes to decorating cakes because it doesn’t melt in Singapore’s merciless humidity and the coloring doesn’t stain into the cream, like if you were to use whipped cream.
There are plenty of different ways to decorate a cake however, one of the most prettiest and timeless cake decorations that’s I find quite popular among bakers, will always be floral cake decorations. These frosted florals are a garden come to life right atop your very own creation and they give the viewer plenty to marvel at whilst hiding any of those tiny (or big), annoying flaws on your cake. A boon for any baker who has ever had a deco mishap!
Plus, there’s plenty of ways that you can always use flower arrangements – from bouquet-shaped cakes, to flower baskets and even bridal flower bouquets. It fits every occasion you can think of and it looks gorgeous.
Cake decorating is a process that requires a lot of time, patience and dedication. So, it should come as no surprise to any aspiring baker out there that it will definitely require you to invest in learning and tons and tons of practice.
Can you guess if these real flowers or not?
