Painted Cakes: 3 Decorating Techniques Using Dreidoppel Flavor Pastes
Use cake as a canvas and let your creativity run free as you prepare your own personal work of art with help from our fine pastry pastes! Here are three cake decorating techniques from Dreidoppel:
Our pastes for fine pastry can be applied pure and undiluted on cooled cakes frosted with buttercream. Using various brush shapes and sizes, simple yet effective patterns can be conjured on your cakes.
Not much artistic talent? Then try the palette technique. Choose from over 50 pastes for fine pastry to add color and taste to buttercream: you determine the intensity. To decorate a cake similar to the one in the photo (20 cm diameter, 10 cm high), you will need approx. 150 g buttercream.
Using small icing spatulas, apply the prepared buttercream in the desired amounts to the smooth surface of the cake. This provides texture and will be a real eye-catcher.
Our pastes for fine pastry let you create smooth, colorful effects and gradients on the prepared cake. You begin by coloring and flavoring buttercream with your choice of our 50+ pastes for fine pastry. Using a spatula, simple arrange dots of buttercream on the surface of the cake. Spread them carefully with a broad, flat offset spatula and fade them out as desired. You can create buttercream cakes in the popular ombre look as well as other great color effects.
