Decorating cakes is fun and really easy once you get the hang of it. Even if you are not ready to create stunning roses and other cake decorations, you can save a bit of money by learning how to write your own messages. Instead of having your cakes customized, you can just buy whatever cake you find that is decorated the way you want and write your own Happy Birthday or other message. The process is really easy and it may just inspire you to learn cake decorating in your spare time.
The steps are as follows:
- Just trace whatever message you want to say on the cake with a toothpick
- Once you are ready, trace over the outline with the icing that you are going to write the message in – there are many ready-to-use icings on the market that make it really easy to write in your message and they come with the writing tip already in place
That’s it. If you want, you can practice a bit before you actually tackle the cake but writing is relatively easy, particularly once you have the message traced with a toothpick. You just have to follow your own outline and you have a customized cake that is easy and inexpensive.
