We feature a lot of crazy and impressive cake decorating techniques, and we’ll never stop being fascinated by the creative designs talented bakers cook up. But for us amateur bakers who only recently learned how to use a piping bag, those outrageous decorations are often out of our league. What we need are ideas we can actually DO from the comfort of our kitchens with our own humble tools. Luckily for us, Everyday Food is here to show us FIVE! Better yet, these techniques work for cakes AND cupcakes. Watch, learn, and bake beautifully.
