Decorations are really the final wrapping or packaging that someone sees and should be as good as the cake on the inside. Always use delicacy and restraint. The purpose of cake decorations are to entice people and at the same time suggest the flavor, texture and feel of the cake and event. They should not overwhelm the cake, but rather enhance it.
Decorations can be really simple by using this icing comb. The serrated edges on this Stainless Steel Icing Comb add interest to icing design.
Press this cake-decorating comb into the sides and top of a frosted cake, before it has set. Pull it across the icing, making a U shape from one line to the next to form waves.
