Meringue decor

Decorating with meringue is not only beautiful, but it will also add a nice crunchy element to the softness of the paska. Buy pre-prepared meringue in different shapes, colors and sizes. Decorate your Easter baked goods with them after coating them with icing, so they will stick securely in place. You can also make your own meringue and use a piping bag to carefully pipe it onto the top of the paska, forming patterns such as waves or peaks.

Chocolate nests

For an original paska decoration, you can use chocolate nests, which will add festiveness and sophistication. Melt dark or milk chocolate in a water bath or in the microwave, add a little butter for gloss. Prepare a cup of cold water, preferably ice, and place the chocolate in a piping bag. Cut off the tip of the bag and carefully pour the chocolate into the water in a circular motion, creating little nest shapes. After the chocolate has set, carefully transfer the nests to the top of the paska. As an addition, you can place chocolate eggs or small candies inside each nest.

Decoration with dried fruits and nuts

Choose bright dried fruits of various colors – such variety will add festiveness to your paska. Allow the cake to cool completely before decorating, then spread the frosting in a thin, even layer. After this, carefully distribute the dried fruits and nuts over the surface. Arrange them in a specific order or create patterns for a more creative look. You can use dried fruits to depict colors, patterns, or simply arrange them asymmetrically for a random but eye-catching design. Secure the decorations by lightly pressing them into the icing to prevent them from falling off.

Paska-rabbit

This version of paska decoration is especially loved by young children. Make blanks in the form of long ears. To do this, bake gingerbread cookies in the shape of bunny ears, paint them with white and pink icing. Using skewers, attach them to the paska and decorate the top as desired. You can also make ears from pink and white fondant.
