Pink Cake

filed under: White Cakes on July 6, 2011

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!

    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?
