Cake decorated with whipped cream
Whipped cream is one of the simplest toppings ever made, made from sour cream with sugar. But what makes this coverage so popular is its versatility and practicality, not to mention that the taste is also very good.
With the whipped cream it is possible to use different types of icing, explore colors and create super original forms for cakes. Another advantage of whipped cream is that it can be used with any kind of dough. However, whipped cream is a greasy topping and should be avoided by those who have restricted diets.

Cake Decorated with American Pasta
American pasta is preferred to make more elaborate decorated cakes. With it you can make cakes that look more like sculptures. However, this type of coverage has some features that make its use a little more difficult.
The first one is that not every type of cake dough can be covered with American paste. Such coverage requires a drier, firmer mass.
Another disadvantage is the taste. Not everyone likes the taste of American pasta. And last but not least, it is the level of ability to deal with coverage. There are even courses that teach how to prepare and handle the paste.
