Hello, today I am going to show you how to make an Easter cake with colored sugar paste decoration.
I received a kit from Scrapcooking to test these products:
- white sugar paste
- flavored colorants
- a decorative Easter mold.
I have to say that I’m not very good at cake design. I like to make cakes, but anything that involves precision and decoration is not really my cup of tea. So it was a good opportunity to test these products and especially the small mold.
I started by testing these pretty colorants. But be careful! They are not only colorants, but also a way to flavor your sugar paste decorations or preparations.
I made a cream topping for my cake. Don’t mind my completely messed up buttercream, hem hem. The powder is easy to measure out with a spoon and mixes very well with the mixture.
I made a sponge cake and cut it in half, then topped it with my mixture.
I then took care of the sugar paste decoration.
I started by rolling out some of the sugar paste to place on the cake.
I divided the remaining sugar paste into several pieces. I then colored each piece with the different colors.
The goal was to see if it was possible to color the white sugar paste with the colors. I don’t know about you, but there is nothing that annoys me more than having to buy lots of packets of different colored sugar paste to make a decoration when some of the colors are hardly going to be used. Once the packages are opened, the sugar paste is hard to keep.
So I put a few powders in the sugar paste and mixed them in. I wanted pastel colors so I used very little.
Tested and approved! The powder mixes perfectly and the color is evenly distributed.
After mixing the different colors, I placed pieces of sugar paste in the pan to prepare my decorations.
It’s not perfect because it’s the first time I tried this technique, but it’s pretty easy to use.
To finish, I pulled out straws and pretty paper and put it all together on the cake.
I thank Scrapcooking for this product test. I had a lot of fun. Did you know these products? Did it make you want to use them?
