A less sweet alternative that also brings color, flavor, and texture to desserts are nuts. Almonds crispy, in slices or ground and the grated coconut, for example, will give another more beautiful and professional image to your cakes with creams or chocolates, your homemade truffles, and chocolates or even your cupcakes or pop cakes.
4. Toppings to decorate desserts
The simplest dessert can seem like a true work of edible art with a little color and imagination. For example, a simple vanilla birthday cake can become the most beautiful gift in the world with colorful toppings, some creativity and lots of love.

If you are looking for a simpler decoration and for every day, always have homemade sugar on hand at home. Give your chef a final touch of your desserts with fruit and chocolate, especially!
For those who prefer lighter and fresher desserts or want to dispense with flour in their recipes, cheesecakes and Panna cottas are the best options. Therefore, as they are also desserts that we usually make and like a lot of people, we advise you to always have neutral gelatine in foil or vegetable gelling agent, for vegans. With this ingredient, you will get a more compact and professional dessert, both in the bases and in the toppings with fruits.
