How To Paint Flowers On Cakes

How-To-Paint-Flowers-On-Cakes.jpg

We’ve seen a new trend popping up in the baking world – painting on cakes. We’re not talking oil based paint but edible food paint.

Painting a cake means you can create designs that are really individual. There is such a wide range of colours available and so many styles you can make, we thought we’d give you a helping hand by pulling together top tips on how to make your cake look great.

Top Tips:

  1. Let the cake sit overnight so you have a firm canvas to paint on the next day
  2. Draw the design using tracing paper first with a non toxic pencil. Then place carefully on the cake and rub gently over the details of the drawing until you create a light impression. This gives you the outline to know where to paint
  3. Mix your colour powders/gel with a little vodka to make the designs last well (Unlike blending with water and alcohol, it doesn’t soak into the cake and sits well on the surface)
  4. Use different sizes brushes, smaller and thinner brushes for details and larger ones for the background
  5. Make sure the cake doesn’t sit in the direct sunlight when it’s on display
