Valentine’s Day Cake Decorating Ideas
As we intend to hold surprises for our loved ones, Valentine’s Day is one of the perfect occasions for women to surprise their families. A delicious cake made especially for Valentine’s Day is one easy idea to carry out that lets your hubby celebrate while having something tasty. You can prepare one or more cakes, as you desire, and apply the decorations to show your love and appreciation for your family. In this topic, we’ve collected various Valentine’s Day cake decorating ideas with tips on how to make them.
The first thought in your minds now is surely a heart shaped cake. Yes! It is the best type of cake to bake as it won’t need much decoration; it’s quick, easy and sufficient for a nice party. Apart from the shape of your cake, the type of decoration that you apply on your cake plays a great role in showing your love. You don’t need to spend much on your cake, just decide on the tastes that your family loves and try to provide them. Using berries, red cream frosting – which you usually prepare with cherry or strawberry syrup – and red sugar flowers is very common and suitable. You can find these things in any baking supply store. Using white, red and pink decorations is essential for a Valentine’s appearance.
Writing love words, names and personalized phrases on your cake is very romantic. Some women use different cream colors and draw flowers, hearts and even Cupid. They are all fantastic ideas, and you may also like to try sugar dough for decorating your cake. That way you will follow a technique similar to that of bridal cake decorations. You will get a lovely appearance by cutting your cake into a certain shape, covering it and wrapping it with sugar dough in red/pink in the form of a bow tie. You can use red dough to make little hearts to stick on your cake.
You can also make a double or triple layer cake then decorate it with sugar flowers, cream and written words. Any simple or complicated shape will give you a magical holiday as long as you use the suitable colors and show your true love. Candy and fruits are optional, but since most of us – especially kids – love them, you can use them widely on your cake either as center décor or as a ring around the edge of the cream frosting.
