Cake Decorating Supplies
No birthday or special occasion is complete without a cake, and you can personalise and customise your creation with cake-decorating supplies, including icing, fondant and cake toppers that reflect the occasion. You don't need to be a professional-level baker to create beautiful and delicious cakes; you just need the right tools for the task.Cake Toppers
Cake toppers make it easy to create a decorated cake. These are typically images or designs attached to picks you can insert into cakes or cupcakes. They may feature lettering, phrases or numbers, such as "Happy Birthday" or "Congratulations," or offer designs shaped like animals, cartoon characters or shapes like hearts, stars or guitars. Cake toppers are a versatile and quick way to enhance any cake no matter the size or to decorate individual cupcakes for a special occasion. Cake toppers come in numerous colours, sizes and designs to meet every need, and they can even be personalised.Cake Fondant and Moulds
Essentially created from rolled icing, fondant is used by many professional cake decorators. You can cut it, shape it, mould it and use it to create endless cake decorations for multiple occasions. Rolling pins, fondant cutters and plungers are just some tools you can use to work with it. You can buy fondant in a variety of colours and create various shapes using moulds, which are usually made of silicone. There are also presses you can purchase that allow you to create fondant letters and numbers. Fondant is thicker than traditional icing and has a harder consistency, making it easy to shape and mould and allowing you to create any number of cake decorations with ease.Cake Icing and Pouches
Icing has a thin consistency and a sweet taste, and it is often the finishing touch for any birthday or special-occasion cake. Adding icing to your cake is a snap when you use icing pouches and a variety of tips to create distinct icing designs. You can find tips that make rosettes, tips that create thin lines and tips to make thicker designs. Switching out the tips as you ice your cake can help you to add texture to it. Icing comes in many colours, or you can use food colouring to create your own custom colours. Additionally, using special tools such as edgers, turntables and smoothers helps to make icing cakes a breeze.Edible Cake Images
Edible images look like a picture, but they're made of sugar, so you can eat them. Use edible images when you want a realistic image on your cake that can't be accomplished with fondant or icing. You can use a special printer to print images onto edible icing sheets, or you can purchase already-customised edible sheets featuring well-known characters or personalised images.
