Decorating a simple cake with powdered sugar is something I do often, but I'll never go back to just sprinkling sugar on the cake, as with the addition of a simple paper silhouette, your cake can look simply fabulous! Cut out a simple paper shape, or even a few shapes, or use a ready made paper doily, place it on your cake and sprinkle the powdered sugar over your cake using something like a little strainer to make sure the sugar goes on in a fine layer, not in clumps. Carefully remove the paper by slipping a knife under it, and voila!
