Create a delicious text from the cakes in Photoshop

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create mouth-watering and tasty text in Photoshop. We will use standard tools as well as layer styles to get the final result in a short time. So let’s get started!

The final result:

Step 1

Create a new document in the program Adobe Photoshop, for this we go File – New (File> New). Set the following parameters.

Step 2

Fill the background with any color you like. Next, double-click on the background layer to make the window appear. Layer styles (Layer Style) select the option Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay), gradient type Radial (Radial), and also set the gradient colors as shown in the screenshot below.

Add a new adjustment layer Curves (Curve) on top of the layer with the background.

Next, go to the layer mask of the adjustment layer. Curves (Curve) and using a large soft brush opacity (Opacity) 50%, brush color is black, process the central part of the image.

The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 3

Now, create a new group, name this group “S”. We will create each letter of the text separately. So, we will start with the letter “S”. Type the letter; I chose the font Joint-by-pizzadude, font size 90 px. Let’s name the layer with the first letter “base 1”.

Step 4

Double click on the text layer and select the layer style in the window that appears. Shadow (Drop shadow).

Next, select a layer style. Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Next, select Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

Step 5

Duplicate the layer “base 1” (Ctrl + J), rename the duplicate layer “base 2”. Shift the duplicate of the letter “S” up a bit.

Next, we will slightly change the layer style options. Let’s start with style Shadow (Drop Shadow).

Further, Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 6

Duplicate the “base 2” layer (Ctrl + J), rename the duplicate of the “base 3” layer. In this step, we will slightly change the layer style parameters. Gradient overlays (Gradient Overlay).

And also add a layer style. Overlapping pattern (Pattern Overlay).

The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 7

In this step we will create the icing. So, let’s create a new layer on top of all other layers, then hold down (Ctrl) + click on the thumbnail of the “base 3” layer to load the active selection. Next, go Selection – Modification – Compress (Select> Modify> Contract). Set the value Compression (Contract by), which is shown in the screenshot below. Name the new layer we created to create ‘Cream S’ glaze.

Step 8

Fill the glaze with any color to your taste. Next, double-click on the ‘Cream S’ layer and in the window that appears Layer styles (Layer Style) select style Shadow (Drop Shadow).

Next, select Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Next, select Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

And we will also add a layer style. Circuit (Contour).

As we know, the icing is never perfect. To the “Cream S” layer, add a layer mask and brush the outer contour of the glaze with a brush.

Duplicate the glaze layer (Ctrl + J), and then move the duplicate layer up a bit.

Step 9

Next, we will add a confectionery dressing to the icing. Create a new group, name this group “Confectionery dressing”. Choose a tool Ellipse (Ellipse Tool (U)) and with this tool, draw a small circle. Next, add a layer style. Shadow (Drop Shadow).

Further, Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

And we will also add a layer style. Circuit (Contour).

The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 10

Duplicate the layer of confectionery we created (Ctrl + J). Next, we will change the color of the dressing, double-click on the duplicate layer and select the style in the layer style window that appears. Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay). Change the color of the gradient.

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

Step 11

Once again duplicate the layer with confectionery dressing (Ctrl + J). Next, change the gradient color for the layer style. Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

Step 12

Next, repeat the previous step. Create a green dressing.

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

Step 13

Next, repeat the previous step. Create a blue dressing.

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

Step 14

Next, repeat the previous step. Create a pink dressing.

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

So, we got the following result.

Step 15

Duplicate confectionery dressing (Ctrl + J). Reduce the size of the dressing, arrange the dressing as you like. My result in the screenshot below.

Step 16

So, we have completed the creation of the letter “S”. In this step we will duplicate the group “S”, name the duplicate of the group “W”.

Step 17

Inside the ”W” group, first remove the layer with the ”Cream S” glaze, then turn off the visibility of all layers, except for 3 base layers (base 1, base 2, base 3). Next, type the letter “w”.

Next, we need to change the shape of the glaze for the letter “w”. Hold down (Ctrl) + click on the thumbnail of the “w” layer to load the active selection. Next, go Selection – Modification – Compress (Select> Modify> Contract). Set the compression value to 8 px. Create a new layer without removing the active selection, fill the new layer with any color to your taste. Name this layer Cream W “.

Step 18

Next, apply the layer styles to the “Cream W” glaze layer. First add a layer style. Shadow (Drop shadow).

Next, add Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Further, Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

Next, add Circuit (Contour).

Next, add a layer mask to the layer with glaze and use a soft black brush to process the glaze contour so that the glaze looks spread out.

Duplicate the glaze layer, and then move the duplicate layer up slightly.

Step 19

Create a new layer, name this layer “Glazing W” (Frosting W). Using a brush, draw a shape as shown in the screenshot below.

To the layer “Glazing W”, add a layer mask and use black brush to hide separate parts of the curve of the glaze line.

Step 20

Next, to the “Glazing W” layer, add layer styles. First add a layer style. Shadow (Drop Shadow).

The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 21

Next, let’s add a confectionery dressing to the letter “W”.

Step 22

Next, we will work with the letter “E”. Just repeat the same action when we created a group for the letter “W”.

Step 23

Next, we add the icing to the letter “e”. Just repeat the previous action, when we added the icing to the letter “W”.

Step 24

To the layer with glaze, add a layer mask and use a black brush to process the edge of the glaze to create the effect of a spread glaze. Next, on the same glazed layer, apply the following layer styles.

So, we got the following result.

Step 25

Duplicate the glaze layer, and then move the duplicate glaze layer up slightly.

Next, add confectionery dressing to the letter “E”.

Step 26

Next, let’s duplicate the layer with the group “E”. For a duplicate of the “E” group layer, we will save the layer styles as they are, the only thing we will change is the gradient color for the style Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay), and also change the color shades for the style Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).

The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 27

Next, using a brush, draw a curved line imitating enrobing, as in the screenshot below.

To the layer with the drawn line, add a layer mask and use a black brush to hide separate sections of the line, as shown in the screenshot below.

Go to the “Glazing W” layer, copy the layer styles, and then paste the layer styles for the layer with the glazed line on the letter “E”.

Step 28

Next, we add the letter “T”. Just duplicate the layer with the group “W”, and then rename the duplicate group “T”, then change the letter.

Now we need to change the shape of the glaze for the letter “T”. Hold down (Ctrl) + click on the thumbnail of the layer with the letter “T” to load the active selection. Next, go Selection – Modification – Compress (Select> Modify> Contract). Set the compression value to 8 px. Create a new layer. Fill the active area with any color of your choice.

Step 29

To the layer with glaze, add a layer mask and use a black brush to process the edge of the glaze to create the effect of a spread glaze. Next, apply the following layer styles to the same glazed layer.

The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 30

Duplicate the glaze layer, and then move the duplicate glaze layer up slightly.

Next, we will add the confectionery dressing to the letter “T”. Do not be afraid to add dressing, add as much as you like. My result in the screenshot below.

Step 31

So, we have almost completed the lesson. The result should be as in the screenshot below.

Step 32

In this step, we will add the confectionery dressing, placing it as shown in the screenshot below.

Step 33

Next, using a brush, draw a few drops of glaze, as shown in the screenshot below.
