Edible Wedding Cake Decorations
Though icing flowers are nice, you can’t beat nature when it comes to the beauty of real flowers. Candied flowers are real flowers that are dusted with sugar. These edible wedding cake decorations come in a variety of different types – violets, lilacs, roses and pansies are some of the most common flowers.
You can make candied flowers, but if you want flowers that are perfectly done, consider buying from an online source that specializes in candied flowers for wedding cake decorating. You can apply candied flowers to your wedding cake by placing them on top of soft buttercream icing or adding a small amount of icing to the back of each flower and placing it on the cake.
This edible wedding cake decoration is a sweet almond paste that is sculpted into shapes like flowers or fruit. Unlike fondant or gum paste decorations, marzipan is quite tasty. Marzipan cake decorations come in almost any shape you can think of. You can find some marzipan designs in cake decorating stores, but the best selection of marzipan is available only from online stores.
If you’re wondering how to decorate a wedding cake using marzipan flowers, it’s very easy. You can apply these decorations by using icing as “glue” or you can place the decorations on the cake and secure them with a clear glaze.
Chocolate curls and chocolate shapes are very popular for wedding cakes. They give an interesting look to cakes and they taste good too. You can easily make chocolate curls by using a block of chocolate and a vegetable peeler. Chocolate shapes can be bought online or from some candy stores. Chocolate decorations will affix easily to soft buttercream, so there’s no need to “glue” them on.
