Decorate Desserts Like a Pro
Decorating Trend: Buttercream
Buttercream icing, an American favorite, is resurging in popularity. Spatula-iced cakes and simple techniques show off taste and texture with minimal effort. If you're pressed for time, you can still deliver big results with ready-to-use icing pouches that function like a traditional decorating bag and tip.
Decorating Trend: Tall Cakes
Tall, slender cakes with multiple layers are also making a big impact; often by showing multiple colors in one cake or combining a variety of flavors. Save yourself the trouble of torting your cakes by using one five-layer cake pan set. Ombre cakes, rainbow cakes, naked cakes and more are all easy to achieve using the pan set.
Decorating Trend: Fondant
Wilton’s new Decorator Preferred® Fondant has an improved, smooth vanilla flavor and is softer and more flexible to work with. There are a variety of colors available as well as some new tools that add detailed touches to your desserts. Show texture with pattern rollers or use a fondant imprint set to dress up cupcakes. Add dimension with cut out pieces of fondant and add the perfect finishing touch with a fondant ribbon.
Perfect the Techniques
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned decorator, there’s a lot to learn in Wilton’s updated decorating courses taught in craft stores across the country. Course 1 – Building Buttercream Skills serves up some trendy new techniques. Course 2 adds to the skills taught in Course 1 with a larger focus on flowers. Step up your decorating game with Course 3, which teaches a variety of fondant and gum paste techniques.
