Steph is a good friend of mine who can really decorate a cake!!  You will see from the pictures below that her cakes are beautiful and creative.  I also must mention that Steph not only can decorate cakes but I have seen her throw parties and showers that are classy AND budget friendly.

Here are her cakes and tips.

  • Freeze cake before icing layers…especially if you are carving the cake into any shape. Freezing the cake minimizes the crumbs when icing it.
  • Make sure to use room temperature butter when making icing. This ensures that your icing will be smooth and fluff.
  • When making layered cakes, go easy on the icing between the layers. Too much icing will cause it to ooze out when you start stacking
  • Don’t be afraid to make a template when creating a specific design, shape, or picture on a cake. I tend to draw/print it out on white paper first. Then I use a toothpick to “draw” it on the icing. If I mess up, I can smooth that little part out and keep going. Then, I just the icing tips to trace over it.

    Thanks to Steph for sharing her tips and pics.  The best news is that she is going to be making a 50+ lady bug cupcakes and she said she would e-mail me pics!  Woohoo!
