Lazy cake decorating Inspired by the flour pattern on a loaf of bread at King Arthur’s bakery.
Here’s how I made my pattern for this cake.
I started out making a square from a regular 8.5x11 sheet of paper.
Next I folded it in half diagonally and then in thirds. The half part is easy, the then in thirds is something I just guess at and hope I get it right the first time.
Then snip off the extra. I’m making a basic hexagon to start.
I then fold it in half again. I drew out some random shapes to cut. I have no idea what it’ll look like! I never do, it’s always a surprise.
Uh, weird , I don’t really like it.
So I made another one with what I hope to be more like stars in the cut outs.
I like it, I’ve spent enough time snipping paper!
I center it on the cake
Add a spoon or two of powdered sugar
in the sifter, the sifter that I never use for anything but this.
Now just take the pattern off carefully and that’s it.
Please don’t ask about the cake, it came out waay “too healthy”.
