I've noticed that a lot of the views on my blog are for a certain recipe I've put up, the Devil's Food Cake with Ganache Frosting, and simply because of the chocolate shards I made to decorate it, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a section of my site dedicated to decorating ideas.
Now, I'm not a professional baker or cook, this is a hobby that I really enjoy, and coupled with photography, it's something that just makes me really happy once the cake, cupcakes or cookies are done and the people that are eating them enjoy them from the first look to the last bite.
I think that a beautifully decorated cake already makes it more delicious before you've even had the first bite. Sometimes less is more and sometimes you need to go overboard, but whatever you do, have fun doing it. Put aside enough time just for the decorating alone so that you can enjoy what you're doing and that it doesn't become a stress. I've sometimes left decorating a cake a little too late and then I end up frustrated and that's when I make mistakes which then have to be fixed. Take your time! :)
The decorating ideas on this page, in my opinion, can be done by anyone, as I said, I'm not a professional baker, I just take the time to do it. I've put the frosting recipes in this section as sometimes the only decorating you need is a little bit of clever frosting :)
So have fun and see what you can create!
