    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!

    The Perfect Crusting Buttercream


        • 2 pounds powdered sugar
        • 1 c shortening (check alternate method for butter)
        • 2 tsp. vanilla extract (use clear if want white frosting)
        • 1/2 c to 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.
        2. Alternate Method:
        3. 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 a drop of red food col


        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!

        Your tutorial makes this looks so easy, I may actually try it! Thanks!

        tell me, dear amanda, any great ideas for a baby shower cake?

          take large marshmellow and use smallest star tip and cover the 2 large marshemellows to make a baby boot

        This is completely beautiful!

        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! 😀

        Don't Pass on Dessert!
