Do you want to stay safe & good or do you want to bake a cake and be great? Because cake is happiness, if you know how to bake a cake, you know the way of happiness but cakes have such a terrible habit of turning out bad just when you want them to be good and still nobody has the habit of turning a cake away, because cakes are special, every birthday, every anniversary and every celebration ends with something sweet, a cake but most of us won’t put the brain and heart in baking a cake for ourselves instead we just commemorate the occasion by the courtesy of baked cakes provided by our nearby bakeries, so lets take a stand by baking the perfect cake for any occasion as this article teaches you to bake not just any cake but the photo cake!


The photo cake is an just like any other cake the only difference is that it has a edible photo on top of an icing, most bakers that bake photo cakes use an special printer that is used only to produce edible prints, the paper used for edible photos is usually known as “icing paper” or “frosting paper” and the inks used to print these photos are made from sugar or food colouring and don’t worry if you don’t have a special printer, you can just trace the picture on the icing paper, pipe your icing onto the design and freeze it! , if you still can’t grasp, the step by step instruction goes something like this

  1. Decide an picture you want to trace, the quality and size of the photo matters as the photo should fit the cake perfectly.

  2. Place a icing paper or an wax paper on top of your photo and just like a colouring book, trace it but be careful around the corners and if it’s gone wrong, don’t worry sometimes mistakes pays off.

  3. Here comes the fun part, pipe your icing onto the design and this is where detail matters, flip the traced paper upside down, trace on with the icing and put the design into the freezer for hours up to several days.

  4. Prepare a cake that is worthy of your hardly done design, make sure it’s tasty and hold on.

  5. Take the design out of the freezer, cover your cake with the icing of any colour and then place the design on the cake and pull the paper, if the frosting is thick, the cake will be a charmer.

To Warp Up

The great thing about cake is it doesn’t feel like work, you forget about work, kids, adult because they all get the same look in their eyes when they’re decorating cakes and that’s the magic right there, so take a chance, you’ll never know how perfect somethings might turn out to be.
