Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary or just making it to the end of a busy week, this Sprinkle of Celebrations Cake is as easy as, well, a piece of cake to make! Use the tip of a spatula to add texture to the side of your cake, then sprinkle the top and bottom of your cake with colorful nonpareils for added color. You can see this cake and many more in the How to Decorate Cakes & Desserts kit, filled with lots of tutorials, inspiration and even a few must-have tools for cake decorating.
If you find it challenging to ice a cake smoothly, try spatula icing. It’s a great way to hide imperfections, create texture and add visual interest to cakes. Begin this technique with a fresh, roughly iced cake. Spatula icing is a versatile technique that can also be used to decorate other treats. Try it with sheet cakes, cookies and brownies.
