Those who watched the video for the Panettone Cake recipe saw that I am already excited about the Christmas decorations theme, right? A simple way to make the presentation more Christmas is by using the cake tops!
Although it is not difficult to find themed cake tops in pastry shops, preparing yours makes it all the more amazing. Here are some beautiful and easy suggestions to make!
In the Panettone Cake itself I give an idea of decoration with chocolate trees! To do these wonders just temper the white chocolate using the technique you prefer: on marble, in the bowl or using mycryo.
Then, separate the chocolate into three bowls and add light, dark and bluish green coloring. Place each dyed chocolate in a piping bag with a small round spout.
Leave chopsticks (edible or not) on top of a baking sheet, pour some chocolate at the base of the sticks and start making zigzag movements to form the Christmas trees. Finish with confectionery, put in the freezer for five minutes and decorate the dessert 😉
For those who like more minimalist decorations you can bet on rosemary! The natural leaves are super-charming, give that rustic touch and do not need anything else.
Use a white vanilla cream, whipped cream or buttercream as a topping for your cake, I’m sure the effect will look even better!
Do you want an option also using plants or fresh herbs? These garlands are perfect! Although I saw this suggestion for decorating cupcakes, I can’t deny that they would look beautiful on a cake! In addition to rosemary or mini eucalyptus, you will need floral wire and scissors.
To make the wire round, use a bottle or glass with the circumference you want as a base. Then just wrap the wire around the container, finish the base with several turns and cut the rest. The plant also comes wrapped in the wire. Simple, right?
NOTE: Aah, if I were you would make garlands of various sizes and heights to create an incredible effect on the presentation.
Still talking about nature, you can use dried pine cones as a decoration. Use a golden food coloring to paint the fruit and glue to stick a toothpick also painted in gold.
The more “glamorous” effect is in the tone, but even so there is no mystery in the preparation.
Shiny star stickers can be perfect for this Christmas! Of course, harder paper, glue and glitter also work 😉
Place a toothpick inside two stars (sandwich type) and cut the base of the toothpick to the desired height! Make several with different heights and shades to create a beautiful effect.
Do you want double delights? Nothing better than putting gingerbreads, those classic gingerbread cookies from that time, as decoration on your cake.
You can make it in the format you want, just have a good cutter and a lot of royal icing to make the white details.
Isn’t it nice to have so many decorating possibilities for dessert? The coolest thing about “do it yourself” is that nobody will have a version like yours! Also, you can call even those who are not a fan of cooking to help with supper in any way 😉
