SIMPLE WAYS to top a cake

Odette Williams shares some easy cake decorating inspiration so you can turn a blank cake canvas into a work of art.

There are many extravagant ways to decorate a cake, but I’m all about simple touches that give a cake personality that’s unique to the occasion or the recipient.

Icing sugar and homemade stencils

Dusting a cake with icing sugar is the quickest way to top a cake. It’s perfect for those times when you’ve just come home from work and discovered you need to bust out a cake. I like seeing some of the naked cake that’s often hidden by icing. Dusting icing sugar over a stencil is a fun way to pretty and personalise a cake. I have also used edible glitter and coloured dust. Winter leaves or other simple shapes like stars make easy stencils. Hold the stencil on the cake and dust the cooled cake just before serving as the icing sugar will dissolve over time.
