Cake Decorating 101: Piping

Dear Creative Cake Baker,

Desserts can be as pretty as they are delicious. Beautifully decorated cakes are so fun, that sometimes you don’t want to cut into them! And there’s nothing like an elaborately piped cake made from scratch to impress your friends and neighbors. Nevermind the fact that it’s just exciting to make!

You want to know a secret? It can be quite simple to start on a path to cake decorating mastery. I’ll show you how to make your own homemade buttercream frosting, then we’ll go over plenty of how-tos, from making and filling your piping bag to perfecting dots, bows, writing, and flowers.

With this essential foundation, you’ll have all the tools you need to start decorating cakes and letting your inner artist do their thing. I’ll walk you through every step of the way, and show you exactly how to master each technique.

The Cake Decorating 101: Piping episode is your guide to getting started on making gorgeous cakes and cupcakes. So whether you’re working with cakes, cupcakes, or cookies, you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to make a beautifully decorated dessert. And you also get instant access to a growing library of TV show episodes, magazine issues, and cookbooks when you join me, Chef Addie Gundry, for RecipeLion’s Cake Decorating 101: Piping TV show.

Of course, all your cake decorating has to start with frosting, and this Buttercream Frosting is one of the easiest and best you’ll ever make! You can use it anytime you need frosting, and you probably already have the ingredients in your cupboard and refrigerator.

To make the frosting, place the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. Use the paddle attachment and beat the butter on medium speed until it’s smooth, about 2 minutes. Add half of your confectioners’ sugar and beat on low for another 2 minutes, until you have a nice, creamy mixture. Add the rest of your confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla, and continue beating from about 2 more minutes, until the frosting is creamy and fluffy.

Use the homemade Frosting Dye Chart at the end of your cookbook to color the frosting however you like. Now you’re ready to decorate your cake. (And I promise not to tell anyone if you lick the bowl.)

The skills you’ll learn in Cake Decorating 101: Piping are just the beginning. Practice these and before you know it, your cakes will be the talk of the neighborhood. It’s a lot easier to get started than you might think. Along with the homemade Buttercream Frosting recipe, you’ll learn:

  • How to Fill a Piping Bag—It might seem intimidating, but it’s not once you get going. I’ll show you exactly how to set yourself up for success and take all the mystery out of filling your piping bag.
  • How to Pipe Flowers—Frosting flowers can make any cake look like a celebration. There are a few secrets I’ll share with you that make this technique incredibly simple.

Cake Decorating 101: Piping truly is everything you need to start making beautiful cakes. And once you get these skills down, you can expand on them to do so much more. I’ll also show you:

  • How to Write Words—”Happy Birthday,” “Congratulations,” or “Good Luck.” Once you learn the technique, you can write anything you want.
  • How to Make Dots and Bows—Dots are great for borders and bows can liven up any cake. I’ll show you a few of my favorite tricks for making these classic decorations.
