Bas relief is a technique where textures are created by having motifs over the cake with an embossed effect.

This method of cake decorating borrows inspiration from ancient sculptural techniques and would be perfect for a nice day.
Small wedding cake with gold and grassy accents.With intimate gatherings on the rise, there’s no need for couples to invest in large, multi-tier confections.

Adds baker Arley Arrington: “Lately, I’ve been working less on tiered cakes, and more on individually packaged desserts.”
