Tips for Making a Baby Shower Cake Yourself:

Do you intend to bake your own baby shower cake? It’s a terrific way to save money and be creative, and with a few pointers, you can do it even if you’ve never baked a decorated cake before.

Lets get into some tips that will help.

Tips for piping on cakes:

Here are some pointers for writing (piping) words or sayings on cakes:

Pre-write it on your frosted cake with a toothpick. That will act as a starting point. If you make a mistake, you can simply smooth it over with an icing smoother and rewrite it.

Begin with piping the center letters. You’ll know the text are centered and you won’t run out of space if you do this.

Don’t overfill the piping bag. This will make it more difficult to push out the icing and may cause your hands to tremble, affecting the lettering and design.

If you make a mistake, refrigerate the cake well before removing the fault with a toothpick. When the buttercream piping is extremely cool, it is simpler to remove.

Tips for piping flowers and borders:

Now, if you want to pipe simple floral patterns and borders, here are a number of links to tutorials that will assist you even if you have never piped icing before:
