Well what a productive day :-) I’ve managed to get my 4 tier baked 2 vanilla Madeiras a 2 chocolate Madeiras and they all turned out fab. The best was yet to come. For the cake idea I have in mind I needed a light weight cake as a topper but the while surfing Facebook a fab site Shereen’s cakes & bakes put a post up about having used something called RKT for modelling some large penguins on a cake. Not having a clue what this was I started googling and found out it was butter ...
Now I’ve already told you I’ve become a shopaholic at thecakedecoratingcompany and this was another buy. A dinky doodle pink airbrush and colours :-)It arrived and it was like Xmas I just wanted to use it but then I read I needed cleaning liquid for it :-( I didn’t want to mess it up so I waited. The time came when I had chance to use it. I had decided to test my Wilton giant cupcake mould with my 6 year old. I covered the base of the cake in white icing and set to work spr...
I had started gathering all my cake essentials and came across a brilliant web site www.thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk and OMG I must be a rated customer now :-) its like toysrus for cake lovers. The product I took to straight away was the sugarveil it just looked fab and how right I was. While I eagerly waited for it to arrive I research the Internet for how to do it, what goes wrong which was good as the first time I used it, it turned out perfect. I now make sugarveil everyday. The start u...
Hi and if your reading this or looking at my cakes you will realise I’m not a pro and just starting out. So far I’m loving baking and creating cakes. The only problem I’m having at the moment is too many ideas lol I just want to make everything. I get an idea in my head of how I want it to look then put pencil to is per to design it and figure out what to use. So far it’s been hard everything doesn’t pan out smoothly but I see it as learning as I go along. I have...
As a young cake decorator with a very young career in the industry (less than a year), I was fortunate enough to be trusted to make a wedding cake for 130 guests. At first I was pretty excited that the bride would even consider me for the job; then as the days got closer, I started freaking out badly. I started asking myself what made me think I was able to pull this together, what was I thinking? Then a month months before the big day, the anxiety, and the nightmares started; but I kept tell...
I am finding many uses for the star shape cookie cutters. Here is a fast and simple way to make a Poinsettia cupcake topper. Tools you will need plus fondant with either Tylose Powder or gumpaste. Cut out your 3 stars using 3 different sizes. Use a leaf impression mat to create the leaf look for the flower stem then pinch each end of the star to make it pointy. Put your stars together, largest on the bottom working your way to the top with the smallest. Using your fondan...
This is my first time posting a tutorial so I will do my best to explain the steps along with the pictures. I used the Wilton Wreath cookie cutter that comes in their Holiday 40 pc Collection. I used the large size one. Tools you will need Roll out your fondant (I added a small amount of Tylose Powder instead of gumpaste to the fondant), place your wreath cookie cutter on it then the circle in the middle to make sure it is centered before cutting. Once you have it placed correc...
I did a video showing how to assemble the large flowers that use a center and extra petals around it. Since I have another one to make this weekend I thought I’d share the link. This style of cake looks best when the tiers are taller and closer in size to each other, rather than more of a pyramid shape. For example, a 5-7-9-11 will look better than a 5-8-11-14. The taller tiers make it easier to apply the flower petals in a flatter shape and make it look better. One thing I didn...
