What is cake design?
The cake design or "cake decorating" is a culinary art that was born in France! It is a pastry discipline that consists in creating unique desserts and cakes: 3D cakes, cakes on several levels decorated, cakes with a sugar paste cover. But also cupcakes, cookies can be cake design creations.

How to store a cake design?
In the refrigerator? Not in the fridge? That's the eternal question!
One thing is certain. As soon as there is an ingredient that normally needs to be kept in the fridge, the cake must be placed in the fridge until it is time to serve it.
Just as if you were using a cream, icing under the sugar paste, depending on the room temperature, you would prefer to keep the cake cool.
Depending on the quality of the sugar paste, it will be more or less resistant to temperature variations. If the temperature shock between the cold and the room temperature is too great, then the sugar paste may sweat. To prevent this from happening, try not to take the cake out until the last moment. Or, choose a higher quality sugar paste such as Prestige or Smartflex sugar paste .
