Exquisite Sugar Cake Decorations as seen on Martha Stewart magazines

Cake decoration kits by Wendy Kromer Confections

If you are a fan of Martha Stewart, you are probably familiar with the cake creations of Wendy Kromer. Reproducing her look at home is possible if you buy online her fabulous decorative kits.

I guess that anyone who masters more than the basics of cake decoration can get a pleasing result. These handmade decorative items are carefully crafted. I have to warm you; these are fairly expensive cake decorations. But if you wish to impress your guests with a homemade cake, that is certainly the way to go.

You need to know that some pieces are just decorative. Due to the wires, none of the Marzipan Cherry pieces or the shown Hellebore leaves and flowers are meant be eaten. The Hellebore wired leaves and flowers appear tricky to do.

If you wish to eat them, order instead the box of 16 Marzipan Fall Leaves. Easier to use, these almond paste treats nicely decorate cakes or embellish your dessert trays.

Not just for wedding cakes

The Magical Marzipan Forest Cake Kit and the Marzipan Cherry Set produce my favorite looks for Fall celebrations. The Magical Forest kit is a complete set with all the marzipan acorns, mushroom, ferns, oak leaves, fiddleheads, and ladybugs required to decorate the cake as it appears in the Fall 2004 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.

These kits do not imply wedding per se. In my view, these two themes are even more suitable for a milestone birthday party or an extravagant celebration. If you want a simpler solution than a four tier cake, adjust the dimensions and make two cakes. In this scenario, vary the flavor of the cake.

These precious song birds are handcrafted from sugar paste and delicately painted with food color. You can specify your own color palette when ordering online. I will show you on my next post how the Sweet Song Birds can act as the surprising component of a sophisticated blue and brown inspiration board.

Cake decoration ideas for bridal and baby showers

Cupcakes and small cakes are all the rage at bridal showers and baby showers. With a nice smooth icing as the backdrop, it should take you no time to create a sophisticated look with the Blossom Cherry Kit.

One idea is to make a batch of cupcakes with a creamy vanilla icing backdrop, a batch with a light pink icing and a third batch with a chocolate icing. Group them by color or create two dessert trays with their own check board pattern. Each cupcake can get its own look since each set of 24 pieces includes three blossom sizes.

Make sure to plan ahead

Many cake decorations are made to order. The delay for delivery can be up to 8 weeks for some kits. I would suggest that you validate your quantity estimate with the staff at Wendy Kromer Confections before finalizing your order. If you wish to become the ultimate cake decorator within your friends, take a peek at the online catalogue.
