Simple & Stunning! DIY Cake Decorating

Whether you decide to decorate your own cake because it is tradition, or if it is simply to save some money by avoiding a professional bakery- you do not have to sacrifice professionalism. You can easily bake your own cake and use gorgeous accents to give it that impressive look, drawing out the “oohs and awwes” of your guests. As a former cake decorator (yes I did that too, lol)- I can tell you that making roses out of icing and lace trim with a piping bag is no simple feat. Why pretend to be a cake decorating master when you are not? For a simple way to create a stunning cake, check out these edible sugar flowers that you can use to instantly transform your sugary confections into works of art. The talented minds at The Sugar Flower Shop have made cake decorating simple {and stunning} for you.

This beautiful cake {below} is currently being featured on the STYLE Network as part of “Martha Stewart Weddings: The Art of Cakes II.” Check it out:

Yes, those poppies are made out of sugar and are completely edible! I know, I know…. fabulous! This poppy cake is one of my favorite creations, but they have a gorgeous gallery of unique wedding cakes, party cakes, plus many more cakes for a multitude of cake-eating occasions. I love browsing their sugar flower selection and imagining all the impressive cakes I can make myself. Here is just a peak:

If you live in New York, NY you can schedule an appointment with the Sugar Flower Shop and check out all the edible works of art they create. If you don’t live locally, they will gladly ship these sugar flowers right to you! How awesome is that? You can be creating similar creations in no time.

    They look like fabric, definitely not sugar. Fabric flowers are great because they can last forever.

    This cake decorating I think I could do. It takes a great deal of skill to decorate a cake, and I have always stuck with adding fruit or those candied words to my cakes. But I really think I could do this. Thanks for sharing this great idea!
