7 Decorating Ideas to Use on Easter Cakes

. at . 2 comments

Since I started baking birthday cakes for Cake4Kids, I have been learning new decorating techniques. These ideas are not just for birthday cakes, either. What I am learning can be transferred to any holiday cake.

Look below to see how the various techniques can be used for this year’s Easter cake. And once you’ve made an Easter cake, you are ready to employ the technique on your next birthday cake.

The ideas shown are fondant, unicorn-style, multi-colored layers with sprinkles, naked cake, make your own shape cake, watercolor, drip, and ombre.

Easter Mini Log Cake (by Tracey Lau).

It would be easy to transform a round cake into this textured log. Add some buttercream flowers and a fondant bunny and butterfly. Oh, so cute and easy to do.

Bunny Easter Cake (by Dulce Gourmet). This bunny cake is reminiscent of the ever-so-popular unicorn cake. You could add flowers to this sweetie, if you want more color. And you can go to this post (ideas to decorate a unicorn cake) to get ideas for your bunny cake.

Easter Layer Cake (by The Gunny Sack). Each layer is a different spring color. Top with sprinkles and, TA DA, you are done. For another look, you could “naked frost the sides and the lovely cake colors would show.

Naked Carrot Cake (by The Little Epicurean). Carrot cake is always a good choice for an Easter or spring celebration. This baker used real carrots on top. With a little work, you could fashion fondant or modeling chocolate carrots to adorn your cake.

Cutest Easter Bunny Cake (by Food and Wine).  Bake two rounds and cut them according to the directions. Ice and then top with coconut. Use candy to make eyes, a nose, and whiskers. Sprinkles make a lovely bow-tie. This is sure to delight any child.

Easter Bunny Watercolour Cake (by Wilton). Have you tried the watercolor icing technique yet? It is easy and fast. Check out this video. The way the decorator made the bunny on the side of the cake is clever.

 

Mini Egg Drip Cake (by Jane’s Patisserie). Here is an Easter example of a drip cake. Pipe on some buttercream nests and top with Easter candies. This link also gives you the details on how to make the cake.

Modern Ombre Easter Cake (by Think. Make. Share). You’d never guess this “messy” first photo would end up with something so lovely. Learn this technique on an Easter cake and then use it for other themes, too.

Your Turn . . .
