2. Confetti Birthday Cake

The classic confetti cake is perfect for birthday parties, definitely a staple for bakeries and cake shops! It's fun, colorful, and yummy; what's not to love? Plus, it's also super quick and easy to make.

Before you start decorating your cake, slather a layer of Tulip Chocolate Cream all over it. This will make it easier for the confetti to stick onto the cake. Then, sprinkle some Tulip Multi-Colored Chocolate Rice on top of the cake, and you've got yourself a beautiful cake!


3. Naked Chocolate Cake

If you don't have a lot of time to make your cake, this is the perfect cake decorating method for you! The name says it all; a naked cake has zero to minimal cream, exposing its layers beautifully. This minimalistic decor method looks extremely chic. So, as a cake-shop owner, you can market this cake design for elegant parties and soirees.

To decorate a naked chocolate cake, you can choose to use a small amount of cream on top of the cake, just enough to help the toppings stick onto the cake. Then, you can top the cake with fresh berries, edible flowers, or beautiful chocolate butterflies made with Tulip Dark Decor Compound Chocolate.

4. Unicorn-Themed Cake

Unicorns have become popular for the past few years, especially among younger kids. Many cake shops started to sell unicorn-themed cakes as they attract more customers.

To make a unicorn-themed cake, you'll need to make some fondant in your preferred colors. For a chocolate cake, we suggest making a pretty unicorn with some gold highlights for the eyes, mouth, and other details. As for the horn, you can place an ice cream cone coated with edible paint on top of the cake.


5. Winter-Themed Cake

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Everyone dreams of a white winter wonderland. As a bakery owner, you might need a lot of ideas before welcoming Christmas. So, here's a great cake decorating idea for you!

We suggest you make the whole chocolate cake white to represent snow and decorate it with some ornaments. To make this winter-themed cake, use Tulip White Compound Chocolate to coat your cake and make it appear snowy. Then, make some lovely decorations and snowflakes using Tulip White Decor Compound Chocolate and put them on top of your cake.


6. Fresh Berries and Choco Cake

Berries and chocolate will always go along; the combination simply tastes divine! So, you can always decorate your chocolate cake with fresh berries, including raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries. You can also add some mint leaves to freshen up the chocolate cake.

Additionally, feel free to cover your cake with a chocolate coating, such as Tulip Coating Chocolate, before placing the berries so your cake looks shiny and even more beautiful.
