Our Christmas Cake Decorating Tutorials via Instagram Reels

Christmas cake decorating tutorials by Juniper Cakery

Yes. It’s that time again! Every time we hit three #reels in a season or collection we feature them on our blog. Not everyone is on Instagram (crazy, but true). So we try to keep things updated on here too. It’s November and we are in the festive spirit! Here’s our recent Christmas cake decorating tutorials via Reels! You can pipe pretty snowflakes or add cute edible trees to your holiday treats in no time.

Easy Christmas Tree Cupcake!

We used a rich deep green buttercream to pipe our tree onto a cupcake. You can pipe larger versions onto cakes or add lots of them to make a forest! This tutorial works really well with a stiffer consistency royal icing too. This way you can pre-make rows of them to use on your next homemade sweet. OR why not use this tutorial with your own go-to meringue recipe?

To pipe we used a Wilton 8B piping tip! Sprinkles? We used both pink sanding sugar and edible pearls by Wilton!

Festive Wreath!

We went doughnut crazy for this fun Christmas cake decorating tutorial! You can, however, use this quick tutorial to pipe onto cookies, cupcakes and more! It’s actually pretty easy too. Also, make this match your own decorations or table settings by swapping the colours. Try adding sprinkle mixes or candy to decorate.

For this we used a closed star piping tip and a petal tip to create the cute bow. The sizes depend on the treat you’re working with. So if you want to pipe small royal icing transfers then you’ll need much smaller sized piping nozzles.

Royal Icing Snowflakes

Speaking of royal icing transfers (we briefly mentioned them above… how fun are these? These royal icing snowflakes make the sweetest festive touch to seasonal bakes. You can add to cupcakes, cookies, marshmallows, brownies etc. Also, they’re easy to customise with different sprinkles or colours. We have a handy blog post that can take you step by step too.

Some of the tools needed include… a 03 piping tip by Wilton. Go for a 04 if you want your snowflakes a little thicker. Washi tape to stick your sheet down is also a good idea.

Pretty Rose Hat Box Mother’s Day Cake!

Pretty Mother's day cake by Juniper Cakery

Mother’s Day cake time! We had a few requests last year for a party cake the whole family could enjoy on the special day. Soo… we thought of combining cake and a pretty bouquet of flowers. When dreaming up ideas we kept coming back to stylish little rose hat boxes and thought it’d be perfect to make a cake version. It’s a white 6 inch cake with gold accents and fresh pink roses. For a little more info about this lovely little number why not keep reading…

Juniper Cakery gift packaging

Each cake is presented in a re-usable and recyclable presentation box. We love the idea of leaving this ribbon tied cake with a bottle of champagne and bundles of roses ready to be found. They all feature our pink branded satin ribbon and a shimmering swing tag tied in a bow. We’re a little obsessed with our new branded ribbon incase you’ve not noticed.

The cake itself is a Lemon Zest & Raspberry flavour; just like one of our Mother’s Day cupcakes. The cake features lemon zest layers smothered with lemon and white chocolate buttercream and filled with a gorgeous raspberry preserve. Wonderfully fruity and perfect for the coming spring months. Below is a cheeky little shot of the inside of the cake just to tease.

Ahh… just look at those amazingly pink roses! We love anything that tackles two jobs in one so a bouquet of roses AND a cake in one is a definite win.

Please note: The pink of the roses may vary slightly due to availability, but we will always do our best to get an exact match.

Cute Frozen Birthday Cake!

Fun Frozen birthday cake by Juniper Cakery

Frozen birthday cakes are pretty much a given on our order list each year. Yes, even in the glaring heat of summer it won’t be odd to find us crafting an Olaf from scratch! They’re too much fun… perfect for birthdays. Above is a cute single tier version we created recently. A special little lady turned 2 whole years old and obviously needed a cake to celebrate. You can read more about the different aspects of this sweet design below!

For a more sleek look we stuck to just a few design elements on the cake itself. On a pale ice blue cake we added some stylised mountains in a blue a few shades darker. A flurry of fondant snowballs trim the base and sparkling snowflakes featured on the front. We then added little Mila’s name in glittering silver painted letters. Obviously for that extra frosty look we lightly dusted the surface with an edible pearlescent lustre.

Yay! Olaf is pretty cool to make (pun intended). The trickiest part are those skinny eyebrows that we cut via hand. We end up working with such tiny features that we do wonder if we should get jeweller’s goggles sometimes! To finish his look Olaf gets a wide toothy grin, big excited eyes and a cute carrot nose to finish.

Of course would it even be a Frozen cake without Elsa? She is featured on top with Olaf having fun in the snow. We are totally loving Elsa’s hair on this cake too. We experimented with a few different ways to give her a dramatic side braid. First we sketched out ideas and then tested some. We settled on the final version because we thought the chunkiness of it looked cartoon-like and fun.

Elsa’s outfit was somewhat simplified as we thought that would lend well with the overall look of the cake. We definitely had to keep her cool train though. We angled it to sit a little to the side. What’s the point of a train if you can’t see it right?
