Buttercream Flowers

Buttercream flowers have become a popular trend in cake decorating in recent years. These delicate and intricate flowers are made using buttercream frosting and a variety of piping tips. With a little practice, you can create stunning flowers that look almost too pretty to eat. From roses and peonies to daisies and sunflowers, the possibilities are endless. There are a number of excellent tutorials on CakeFlix from the Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes team on our Buttercream Category.

Drip Cakes

Drip cakes are another popular trend that has taken the cake-decorating world by storm. These cakes are decorated with a drippy layer of frosting that cascades down the sides of the cake, creating a dramatic and eye-catching effect. Drip cakes can be customized to fit any occasion or theme, with different colours and flavours of frosting. Easy to make and always very popular. Check out our Drip Cakes Tutorials on CakeFlix.

Geode cakes are a unique and trendy cake decorating style that incorporates a crystal-like design. The cake is cut open to reveal a stunning geode-like structure made of candy or edible rock candy. This cake style is perfect for weddings, birthdays, or any special occasion where you want to make a statement. You can see the stunning effect of the geode effect in the Concrete Geode cake tutorial by Marc Suarez.

Naked Cakes

Naked cakes are a minimalist cake decorating style that showcases the cake itself. These cakes are left un-iced on the sides, with only a thin layer of frosting on the top. Naked cakes can be decorated with fresh fruit, flowers, or other decorative elements to add a touch of elegance and charm. There are a number of Naked Cakes tutorials on CakeFlix to help with ideas and easy to follow step by step lessons. 

Watercolour Cakes

Watercolour cakes are a beautiful and artistic cake decorating style that incorporates a watercolour effect. This cake style is achieved by painting different colours of frosting onto the cake with a brush or spatula, creating a dreamy and ethereal effect. Watercolour cakes are perfect for weddings, baby showers, or any occasion where you want to add a touch of whimsy.
