So we thought of talking to you about these really tasty and fulfilling flavour combinations that the world of baking has gifted to us! You might or might not have already tried some of them, but we are here to give some much needed attention to these crowd favourite combinations.
Tips on Cake Decoration for Beginners
- The first thing to do is cover your cake with icing, this gives it a neat finishing and gives you a black canvas to work on. So, with a spatula, spread the icing evenly all over your cake. It will take some time to perfect it but you’ll get there. It’s okay if your first one is bumpy!
- Piping is a very important cake decorating technique. It’s a little tricky as you might find it difficult to handle and balance the piping bag. Fill in your piping bag and hold it against your palm so that you can pipe comfortably.
- Practice a steady hand to ensure you don’t make a mess with all the piping.
- The right consistency is key to getting beautiful patterns and designs with piping. So get your piping mix to the correct consistency and check before you fill in your piping bag.
- Hamstech baking course will teach you different ways to get your piping right. This also includes cake baking, pastry making and learning the usage of baking equipment among others.
Chocolate and Orange
Chocolate is loved by many of us! What if we could amplify the yumminess of chocolate with a citrus zest that highlights it. That’s why orange and chocolate flavour combinations work. This combination is used in baking of different items. You could have a nice fluffy orange cake with chocolate icing or vice versa! This flavour pairing is not just limited to cake baking; you can make chocolate bars and mousse with this combination too. The sweetness and bitterness of the chocolate goes really well with the sourness of the orange, making this a really tasty flavour combination.
Pumpkin and Spice
Pumpkins are synonymous with autumns. The breezy autumns demand for some comfort food that you can sit and enjoy from time to time. Also this is the time when pumpkins grow in abundance and you will be finding pumpkin based dishes on the specials menu in bakeries and restaurants. Pumpkins are mildly sweet and are often used to make pies, as they are perfect for the festive season. When you pair this pumpkin with spices like cinnamon or cardamom, you’ll end up with a really rich and festive flavour pairing that you can’t get enough of! So the next time you have your friends over, remember to include some pumpkin and spice combination baked goodies!
Apple and Cinnamon
Apple and cinnamon is a winning combination! Especially apple tarts and pies when combined with cinnamon spice will give you a Christmassy dish that’s loved by all! Cinnamon spice helps in bringing out the tartness of the apples, which makes it a really yummy combination. You’ll even find apple and cinnamon spiced cookies at your local coffee shops in the festive season. Apple and cinnamon pie is easy to bake and can be quite fulfilling with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The crunchy outer apple pie base with a soft center filled with cooked apples, cinnamon sprinkled on top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the best way to end a meal!
