Repossessed Address Cake
Our Enchanted Castle cake has been taken over by a host of Halloween characters. Ghosts, pumpkins, spiders and bats, all ready-made icing decorations, seem to be everywhere!
Cake serves 12.
Ice sides, door and background areas smooth.
Outline castle with Tip 5.
Fill in with Tip 16 horizontally-piped shells. Pipe in windows with Tip 5.
For rooftops, spatula stripe a bag with violet icing color and fill with dark gray icing; pipe Tip 10 balls on each rooftop.
Print Tip 3 message in doorway. Add Tip 10 ball bottom border. Position icing decorations.
The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.
The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.
Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.
Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.
