How to decorate an Easter cake?
The most common way is to apply a protein glaze.
- 300 g icing sugar;
- 3 egg whites;
- 1 tsp orange or lemon juice.
First you need to beat the cooled egg whites with the juice. Then you need to gradually add powdered sugar, without stopping the whipping process. The glaze should have a firm consistency. To make it shine better, it is applied to freshly baked hot cakes. The products are left to cool completely, decorated with various colored sprinkles, edible flowers from mastic or marzipan.
You can decorate the Easter cake with strawberries, which are laid on top of the protein glaze.
If you have marshmallows, garnish your cake with a few of this sweetness.
If you want your baked goods to be bright in spring, then you can decorate them with dried lavender petals, roses, dried fruits, pine nuts, almond petals
Decorating can be done with icing sugar, taking 2 tablespoons of milk, water or juice per 100 g of powdered sugar. Sift the powder, add liquid here and mix thoroughly. Then decorate your creation.
You can quickly arrange cakes by melting chocolate and pouring this mixture over the top of the baking. While the glaze is warm, attach nuts and dried fruits here.
You can also decorate the cake by preparing the mastic according to the following recipe. Take:
- 100 g butter;
- 200 g of fatty sour cream;
- 4-5 Art. l. powdered sugar;
- 4 tbsp.l. cocoa powder.
Put butter and sour cream in a small container, melt this mixture over low heat, but do not boil. Add the icing sugar and cocoa by sifting through a sieve. Heat the mass, then cool slightly and pour over the cakes. Decorate with powdered sugar.
You will also be able to decorate the cake well if you make packaging for it.
You can make a beautiful napkin holder for Easter cake, put it in the center, and put colored eggs in the pockets formed.
Watch a master class with step-by-step photos that will help you do this work. Take:
- dense fabric;
If the fabric is dense enough, then you will also need an adhesive interlining for the finished product to have its shape. Cut 6 identical circles with a diameter of 40 cm. Fold two so that they touch each other on the wrong side. Tape the workpiece with tape. Also prepare other paired circles.
Put the 3 obtained double blanks one on top of the other, divide the upper one with a ruler and chalk into 8 identical parts, drawing 4 diagonals. Place a round object, such as a saucer, in the middle. We need such that its diameter is 2 times less than the diameter of the napkin.
Now sew all three circles together along the marked lines. You need to make 2 stitches around the inner circle to insert the ribbon between them. You will need to pull on it to raise the edges.
Here is what a beautiful packaging for Easter cake and eggs will turn out.
You can create it from two fabrics that match the color. Use braid of a similar color.
Elongate the outside of the pockets if desired.
For this, you need to make two circles of the same size, and the third one to look like a flower with petals.
Check out another master class with step-by-step photos that will teach you how to make beautiful egg coasters. If you are baking small cakes, you can also put them in these beautiful packages.
Pull the four corners of the napkin towards the center so that you have a smaller square than it was.
Now flip this workpiece over to the other side and fold the four corners back to the center again.
Repeat this manipulation two more times. Press the corners in a stack, in the same way the folds are fixed. But be careful not to tear the napkin.
Now start to peel back the petals, one by one. One layer will open first, then the next.
Help yourself with your work with a glass. If you want to make rainbow flowers, then use napkins of different colors.
