Our Viral DIY Cake Decoration Tutorial : From Grocery Cake to an Artisan Masterpiece

Alright, let's talk about dessert. You've just hosted a fabulous dinner party, wowed everyone with your culinary skills, and now it's time to bring out the pièce de résistance – the cake. But instead of reaching for the same old pre-made grocery store cake that looks like it rolled off an assembly line, why not take it up a notch and impress your guests with a stunning artisan creation?


Now, I'll be the first to admit it – I'm not exactly a baking aficionado. But when it comes to decorating, I'm all in. And trust me when I say that with just a few simple tricks, you can transform that plain old grocery store cake into a work of art that'll have everyone talking.

Step 1: Start with the Basics

First things first, head to your nearest grocery store and pick up a plain cake. Don't worry about flavor – we're going to focus on the presentation here. And hey, if they only have square cakes available, don't sweat it. We'll work with what we've got.

Step 2: Gather Your Ingredients

Now comes the fun part – gathering your ingredients for decoration. 

For this cake you’ll need a ¼ pint of blueberries, vibrant greens like pea sprouts or mint leaves for a pop of color. And for a sunny citrus look and feel a lemon cut into slices.

Step 3: Trace Out Your Cake

If you have a round cake you're ahead of the game. Scrap off any coloured icing and start applying your icing onto the cake

If you there was only a square cake available, trace a circle with a hot small pot lid on parchment paper and lay it on top of the cake. And cut around the parchment paper to get a perfectly round cake. Remove any colored icing and start apply your icing to cover up the exposed edges.

Step 4: Time to Decorate Your Cake

Once your cake is completely covered in icing, it's time to let your creativity run wild! Start by grouping your blueberries in a set of three throughout your cake. Cut clippings of the pea sprouts or mint leaves and nozzle them next to each cluster of berries.

Step 5: Sit Back and Enjoy the Admiration

And just like that, you've transformed a basic grocery store cake into a stunning artisan masterpiece. Watch as your guests' jaws drop in awe and anticipation as you bring out your beautifully decorated creation. Suddenly, dessert isn't just the end of the meal – it's the grand finale that steals the show.

So, the next time you're hosting a dinner party or just craving something sweet, don't settle for ordinary. With a little creativity and a few simple ingredients, you can turn any store-bought cake into a show-stopping dessert that'll leave everyone begging for seconds.



Now, the only question left to ask is: which do you prefer – blueberries alone or paired with tangy lemon slices? Let your taste buds be the judge and get ready to indulge in a slice of pure bliss.

Who says you need to be a baking pro to create something truly spectacular? With a little imagination and a lot of heart, anything is possible – even turning a grocery store cake into a masterpiece fit for a king.

So go ahead, embrace your inner artist, and let's make some magic happen in the kitchen. After all, life is too short for boring desserts. Let's sweeten things up and create memories that'll last a lifetime.
