  • I decorated this cake in six minutes last night.


    Seriously.  It took maybe six minutes to cover the whole cake.

    I did that because I wanted to show you the tutorial that I promised on how to make this delish Chocolate Hazelnut cake.

    So now YOU can decorate a cake in six minutes.


    They sure look alike huh? LOL

    I did use the same technique, just a different sized decorators tip!


    This is a 9PT tip.

    And this…


    is a 2A tip!


    1. Apply gentle pressure to bag and place some frosting on your cake.

    2. Make a ‘dot’ with your tip.

    3. Using the pressure of the tip, push down and away.  (Like you are moving the tip away from the dot, but taking a bit of the frosting with you.)

    Repeat this over the entire cake and you are all done!


    It’s a quick process and has a big impact.


    Pretty, pink, silly, different, unique, and fun enough to delight any recipient!

    Let me know if you try it!

    • 2 pounds confectioners sugar
    • 1 cup shortening, check alternate method for butter
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract, use clear if want white frosting
    • 1/2 - 3/4 cup whole milk
    • pinch salt
    1. Cream shortening and vanilla in mixer for 2-4 minutes. Add in powder sugar, one cup at a time. If you find your mixer struggling, slowing add in milk. Use more milk for a creamy consistency, use less milk for a stiff consistency.

    Alternate Method:
    1. Use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening. Place room temp. butter and shortening in mixer. Put entire bag of powder sugar on top, then add vanilla and 1/2 cup milk. Turn mixer on low and mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Turn mixer up to med-high and mix for 2-4 minutes. Can add more milk to reach desired consistency.

    Add in some pink or red food color as needed.

    I too made this and had a heck of a time with the “seam” on back. What do you recommend for getting that seamless look?
    Thanks for the great cake-spirations! 😀
