We have come a very long way with cake decorations over the years, haven't we?
Have you heard about edible cake decorations? 
Possibly the "geekiest" cake decoration ever.

They're an extremely fun and ornamental addition to any bit of baked artwork, which could add so much atmosphere to the event or special person that the cake was made for.

If cake ornamentation which is not edible is utilised, it kind of takes the fun out to the fact it is a piece of edible artwork. 
It's similar to if you simply shoving plastic playthings on top of a slab of sheet cake. B.O.R.I.N.G {yawn}

At every party or event, cakes are among the main items that we scrutinise and look at, the very thing that emphasises all festivities, 
like birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, weddings and corporate announcements alike.
 
They capture the creative thinking of the event, and visually capture the spirit or theme of the function. 
They're often among the centrepieces of the room and are exhibited and honoured as the focus of both the meal and the decorations at the event. 
These wonderful cakes are adorned with decorations which are really eye catching and may reflect the character or personality of the celebrant. 
What's best is that when these special occasion cakes are embellished with edible cake decorations, every bash and function more thrilling and yummy. 
From air brush colours, meringue powders to sugar blossoms, edible cake decorations are really a fantastic way to add zest to the event.

A broad range of hues may be utilised to colour and flavour each fondant used in the cake design.
