Stitch In Time
Influenced by Mexican textiles, embroidered cakes are a red-hot trend. Our new Sweet Décor™ Embroidery Flowers Assortment let you create colorful, embroidery-inspired cakes without painting on or piping the stitches in icing.
Sweet & Juicy
Create tropical cake designs year-round. Our Sweet Décor™ Vibrant Fruit sparked the idea for this fast and fabulous watermelon cake. Simply ice a cake in red buttercream, add Neon Bright Green top and bottom borders and create “seeds” of black buttercream. Top off the look with a Sweet Décor™ Vibrant Fruit medley and summer has arrived. For the matching cupcakes, Neon Bright Green complements the fun, fruit-shaped pieces with an extra pop of color.
What happens when two big trends show up in adorable, doll-sized proportions? They become absolutely irresistible! The scale may be small, but the opportunity is gigantic with our Sweet Décor™ Mini Unicorn Creations and Sweet Décor™ Mini Mermaid Creations. Add them to a base of buttercream swirls, and watch these magical treats disappear as fast as you can make them.
Easily capture the encrusted chocolate trend with our Dobla® Meltable Chocolate Trays. To use, melt the chocolate in the oven, add your favorite sprinkle or fusion mix to the melted chocolate and cool to harden. Then break into pieces and adhere to cakes with a bit of buttercream icing. Here encrusted white chocolate pieces adorn a glamorous and decadent cake topped with a Forever Young Layon.
Stroke of Genius
A mash-up of sheer artistry, our Sweet Décor™ Brushstrokes merge the painted cake and tempered chocolate trends into one quick and colorful decorating idea. Go big and bold with our Sweet Décor™ Primary Brushstroke pieces fanned out atop a quarter sheet cake and complemented by a multicolored border.
Pro tip: The bottom border was created by piping small dots of icing at the border then dragging each dot upward using an offset spatula.
For a dreamy, three-dimensional look, adorn the cake top with upright Sweet Décor™ Pastel Brushstroke pieces, pastel colored dollops and a sprinkle of Non-Pareils. Make the base extra special by piping bands of colored buttercream icing and blending them with an offset spatula to produce a whimsical watercolor effect.
For awesome-looking cakes with less effort, these new on-trend decorations make extravagant designs easier than ever. Try them out today in your bakery.
ABOUT THE DECORATOR
Hey there, I’m Danielle. I started decorating cakes with my Grandma when I was six years old. It was a fun hobby we enjoyed together. As I got older, I dreamt of going to art school or becoming the next Alicia Keys, but when I was sixteen my Grandma passed away. So when the Cordon Bleu came into my home ec class, I thought. “That’s it. I can still be an artist, and take the Bubba with me the whole time.” That’s why I love being a cake designer and decorator at DecoPac—I get to create amazing, edible art with my Grandma smiling over my shoulder.
