Get your kitchen ready in time for the Easter holidays. Here are a few tips to help you wow friends and family who are craving for sweets.
Get the basics
Before you start making any Easter cake decorations, start with the most important step: make sure you have what you need. That refers to tools and supplies. Do you have tools for decorating a cake like a turntable or a cardboard cake board? What about a spatula? The right tools can simplify the baking process and make your life so much easier. Invest in them.
Knowing how to use the tools properly will matter as well. If you have a bench scraper, for instance, make sure you practice until you achieve the results you want, Food and Wine says. Keep practicing until you see your skills improve.
Sometimes, all you need is your creativity, so you can reuse normal kitchen tools and supplies to create effects and wonderful Easter cake decorations. A bit of research can also help make this happen.
If you are just starting out, then it is an excellent idea to start with simple designs and decorations for your cakes. If you start out with a really difficult and advanced piece, that may only frustrate you, which can affect your motivation. When you start with simple designs, every time you reach a milestone, you’ll feel much more motivated and encouraged to work harder.
Do it now
If you want to get your designs ready for Easter, start experimenting and trying out recipes now. Be sure to order another batch of your supplies. If you plan on trying out recipes, then you are going to run through your supply quite sooner than you normally will. Ordering more of what you need now will help ensure that you don’t run out of them while you’re in the middle of trying out recipes.
