It is impossible to think of Carnival without imagining many colors, right? Of course, the food for this holiday can also get into the party mood and there is no shortage of tips for decorating your favorite sweets and drinks!
I made a selection of my favorite ideas for decorating desserts and even simpler sweets at that time and I hope you like it!
Perhaps the most obvious and tropical decor is fresh fruit. The method of preparation is simple, but the effect is incredible and still gives that freshness in the flavor. We even have a post here on the site with decorating tips for fruit tartlets, okay?
Even cakes can gain that touch of decor. Naked cakes or recipes with a simple glaze combine perfectly with berries.
Of course, we can’t forget about terrines, right? The fruits here are not just ornaments – on the contrary, they are the stars of the dish.
Did you think it stopped there? Carnaval asks for good drinks and has no more colorful and simple recipe than a classic Clericot Liberté.
Other items that make the biggest difference in decoration are flowers! Seriously, you will hardly find anything more summer and carnival than that, right?
Here on the website you will find a post with flower decoration ideas for cakes and also tips on species that can serve as adornment for any recipe 😉
Even cakes with a delicious chocolate topping can win their Carnival version with some colorful florets!
And what about decorating your drinks with beautiful ice? The effect is incredible even in a glass of water. To learn more just click here 😉

Confections are really our best allies on this occasion, after all, there is nothing easier than finishing a brigadeiro decoration, cakes and even donuts with them!
PASTA AND CAKE FILLINGS
You can also get out of the obvious with the colorful fillings! Remember the cake with three mousses I made for New Year’s Eve? Yeah, you can use all the creativity in the decoration of the mousses to vary the flavor and, of course, the colors 😉
The dough on the cake can also have that incredible ombré like on this strawberry cake beyond that special!
Another very simple option is gelatin! They can be both classic with colored squares, but you can also add dessert with more layers presented in verrines, make terrines or even prepare a different cheesecake 😉
For those who want a well-produced and surprising dessert, glass glaze is always an option! In the galaxy cake recipe I explain the step by step to create this effect, but just change the colors and mix them in other ways to develop your carnival version.
SWISS MERENGUE WITH DYE
Of course, we can not forget the most artistic decorations with piping tips. For me, the best option for decorating and tasting ultra-decorated cakes is Swiss meringue and, from time to time, American pasta. Just add a little dye and the meringue is the desired shade tom
So, do you have any more colorful decoration ideas to put into practice this holiday?
