Chinese New Year Decorated Cakes
I made this decorated cakes for my mom’s Tai Chi class Chinese New Year party. It was a pot luck party and my mom volunteered to bring the dessert and asked me to bake a simple cake. Since it was an outdoors party, I figured out that it would be a good idea to cut up the cake instead of presenting a whole cake so as to save the trouble of the organizers to cut the cake at the party.
The cake is pretty simply to make. I baked a square butter cake and frosted the top with a thin layer of butter cream. Then, I cut up the cake into equal sized rectangle pieces. Then, using maroon and orange butter cream, I piped one maroon flower and one orange flower onto each piece. I then used some green icing to piped tiny leaves and dotted the flowers with some yellow icing for the flower centers. Finally, I used the maroon icing again to pipe the words “Happy New Year” onto the cake pieces.
