Baking is hugely popular with people at home and as a business and cake making firms make truckloads of cash creating wedding cakes, christening cakes and birthday cakes for people around the nation. These companies generally do a great job but with a cake decorating set, an icing set and a bit of practice you could be making your own masterpieces. So, if a birthday or other big event is coming up quell that urge to go straight to the professionals, get yourself a quality cake decorating set and give it a go yourself; you never know how good it could turn out.
A cake decorating set can be an invaluable addition to your bakeware collection and it can be great fun to use either by yourself, or with kids who love decorating cakes and buns. A classic cake decorating set will include a piping bag and a piping nozzle and new sets will have a selection of different nozzles so that you can write on cakes, draw pictures on them or add thick piping detail to them. You can use the piping bag to squeeze cream, chocolate cream and butter cream among other things onto your baked goodies. An icing set is a great way to decorate a cake and to make it original and as attractive as it tastes – if not more so. A cake decorating set works well to decorate a cake that is already iced too, to really finish it off and make it a fantastic-looking dessert.
Everyone likes cake so there really isn’t a bad time to employ a cake decorating set or icing set, but there are a few occasions when it would be an ideal piece of kit.
• Birthdays – what better way to celebrate someone’s birthday than with a gorgeous gateau of some kind. With a cake decorating set you can transform a plain looking cake into a personalised piece of art that could really make someone’s day – if not year!
• Christenings – despite the fact that most people who are christened are far too young to enjoy a cake, their friends and relatives certainly won’t turn down a slice or two. A christening cake is a traditional baked item and with an icing set and cake decorating set you could make a classic one, or a quirky cake brought up to date a bit.
• Weddings – people spend hundreds of pounds on wedding cakes so why not save some cash and make one yourself. This is an ambitious project but very possible and you could make someone’s big day even more special.
