  • How to Colour Icing

    31st October

    Colour is as basic to your cake decorating as the icing and the cake. Choosing appropriate colours for your cake will help you capture just the mood you want for the occasion. When planning your cake, think about colour. Gather inspiration from the theme of your celebration. The icing colors you choose will carry that theme and personalise your decorating. Look around, notice everyday objects – from a garden in bloom, to the clothes people wear. Which colours appeal to you? Use your favorite colours in your decorating. Don't be afraid to try something different. Have fun using rich, bright colours or different colour combinations. Begin by making a monochromatic cake, decorated all in white or in a single, pale colour. Try using colour decorations in contrast to an all-white cake background. Decorate using all pastels or all primary colours. Experimenting with colour will help you decide which colours work to make your cake designs spectacular.

At least this way you don’t need to worry about what your children are eating, when you bake your own goodies, you know exactly what goes into it, rather than it being shop bought.
