Painted Cakes
Every Easter spread needs a centerpiece, and this is a strong contender for the most beautiful option. It's a gravity-defying, 3D egg cake decked out with hand-painted details and metallic accents that pays homage to the fine jeweled Fabergé eggs created in St. Petersburg. Make it this year and everyone at your holiday celebration will be wowed.

Here's the thing: you don't need to be a whiz with a paint brush to create beautifully patterned cakes. All you actually need are stencils. They turn smears of buttercream into gorgeous, crisp patterns and create tasty works of art. Once you get the technique down, you can use it with any stencil to make a wide variety of desserts, whether you prefer an all-over pattern or just a few accents.

You don't have to be Cardi B to love a little bling. Think of all the glittering things in this world and how even a little sparkle can make anything seem more special — including cake. Especially cake.

We're always looking for new ways to add texture to a cake. This one's a current fave because it's stress-free, and turns a simple buttercream cake into a work of art that would make Monet's mouth water.

You may have heard of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics by fusing the shattered pieces together with molten gold. But have you seen that same idea on a cake?

Don’t let this radical design freak you out — creating a tie-dye cake (inside and out!) is way easier than it looks. If you’re newer to covering cakes with fondant, this is the perfect time to try it out. All that crazy color will definitely mask any bumps or bubbles.

Decorating cookies with unique designs is something that I think we all enjoy. However, crafting complicated designs with multiple colors of royal icing can be tedious. One simple solution is to use an airbrush system, which can add a lot of detail with very little work.
