How to decorate weed cakes
To decorate weed theme cakes, you can get weed cake ideas from online sources such as Pinterest. We have curated the best weed cake ideas 2018 above. You can also ask your local baker to decorate a cake for you using marijuana theme (which you can get online). The most common artistic weed cake designs come with the sketch of the cannabis plant.
- Use white and green cream to get the best contrast between the cake and the cannabis plant decoration.
- Create an outline by using the white cream first. Draw the leaf of a marijuana boldly using the white cream.
- Once you have the outline, now feel the space within the decoration’s borders with the green cream. Pay special attention to the appearance of the leaf margin, it should be serrated and this can be done by use of a sharp knife to make the serrated parts more visible.
- You can also add a leaf stalk, but be careful as doing this could mess up the whole decoration if done the wrong way.
Weed cake effects
Weed cakes, in general, are tasty and many people love them obviously because they are sweet. It is important to note however that just like taking a regular cake, weed cake can cause cavities. Thus, it is important to brush immediately after eating. The sugar content is also not advised to diabetic patients.
Of course one of the most common effects of weed is the fact that it will make you “high” if the weed buds used in the preparation contain THC. You are therefore advised to take weed cake from the comfort of your home or in the company of a trusted person in order to avoid any inconveniences it may cause.
There are many creative weed cake ideas online that will inspire you to create yours. If you are a “stoner” and a fan of cakes, you will definitely love weed cakes because of the high and sweetness.
