I love to keep everything I do, very simple….but simple doesnt always mean EASY! LolFor this tutorial, you may want to use Gumpaste… I used Wilton Fondant (For the record, I ALWAYS use the Liz Marek Recipe, but for these, I wanted them to get hard, so I didnt.)

You may also want to try using your pizza cutter or small rolling cutter to give the feather dramatic curves&...
There is a delicate whimsy in having a baby transform into some magical and enchanted being, making them fairies, bugs, princesses…. I delight, fuss and frustrate on every detail as I mold and sculpt and dress the little sugar babies so I can tuck the little sweet being in a sugar flower that adorns the cake… It starts with a bit of inspiration from the “real” baby—-it actually eats my time and a whole lot of time!!! I just keep on looking at the photo of the real bab...

Sydney has been asking me if we could create a sugarpaste full blown rose spray for a cake for sometime now. I figured with Roses being June’s flower now would be perfect. I based the roses for this cake after the Glowing Peace Rose, named after its grandparent Peace, the world’s most renowned rose. The Glowing Peace combines timeless beauty with a modern touch. Large, round buds open to reveal full, 3 inch blooms featuring 26 to 42 golden… Read the wh...
I have been a hobby cake decorator for years and have made cakes for friends and family as favors, my Gruffalo cake was for a friend and so was the van, copyright didnt even enter my head when i made them as i wasnt selling them. This year i have decided to do it as a business and have been getting everything i need ready. One of the things i have been looking into lately is copyright.
