Cake Decorating Tip 1
When adding food colouring to icing, only add a tiny bit at first and use a toothpick to distribute it. Add more food colouring as you go, because it’s much easier to do so than to take it out of the icing mix!
Cake Decorating Tip 2
Crumb coats are cake-changing. What’s a ‘crumb coat’?, we hear you ask. Well, it’s a super simple but extra effective way to ice your cake with buttercream icing or frosting like a pro. When taking to your cooled and freshly baked sponge, apply a thin layer of icing across the top of the cake to coat crumbs as a somewhat priming layer. Add to the fridge for around 10 minutes, before distributing the rest of your frosting on the cake without a crumb!

When it comes to icing bags, always fill with less and refill often – this gives you more control when creating your icing masterpiece!
Cake Decorating Tip 4
Want to create floral patterns on your bakes using icing piping bags, experiment with twisting different nozzles when piping. You’ll see a range of effects, and you can take them to the next level by spiralling inwards with the piping bag to draw larger prints and effects.
