The only down side to a German Chocolate Cake is that the thick chunky icing doesn’t allow you to create the beautiful cake trends that you see online. I have come up with the solution for decorating a cake with chunky icing. My solution is very simple and anyone can do it.
If you are looking up cake decorating videos and tips, you will come across this magically product called Fondant. You can make figures and shapes to top your cake or cover the tops of them. It gives you clean finishes that can make you look like a professional. I personally have never worked with the stuff until this recipe. Wish me luck!
I love caramel. It goes perfectly with apples, chocolate, coconut, or really any sweet. So I have been looking for an easy caramel frosting recipe for my celebration cakes. I recently tried the Caramel Frosting recipe from King Arthur Flour’s cookbook. The closest I have found their site to the recipe is the frosting from this post.
When I make Buttercream Frosting for my cakes, I want it to be light and fluffy. It can’t be too sweet or would make the cake overly sweet. There is perfect happy medium that needs to be obtained when it comes to the perfect buttercream. I think I have found a fool proof recipe that anyone can use.
Over Instagram and Pinterest, you can find hundreds of cakes decorated with the trendy chocolate drip. The drip can be any color or made from either dark or white chocolate. I decided to try my hand at this trendy decoration with a birthday cake I made recently. I went with a dark chocolate drip and used this blog post to help create it.
