I have seen other tutorials on this “Patterns inside a cake” technique but I didn’t know the importance of making the inside image tight if you want each piece to reflect a perfect image. My husband thought up this idea and it works great! I baked a pink cake and cut a small wedge to cut my piece out of. This is all the pieces.. see how they are wedge shaped? This allows for a tight image. Now place the hearts upside down in a small pool of cake mix. I u...

As this is a question I get asked quite a bit, I decided to photo my latest cupcake bouquet every step of the way to show exactly how it’s done. It’s fairly easy to do and by using different colours and decorations you can create a beautiful bouquet that not only looks lovely but tastes great too! BakerLou – Cupcake Bouquet Tutorial You will need:A suitable container (I like to use metal buckets that are easily available from florist suppliers, they are approx 6”...
Hi all !!! Here is a quick little tutorial on an easy and fast way to make Alphabet ( or any other type) of blocks. It’s fast and you don’t have to worry about things drying and you save on fondant. Be sure to use shortening for glue and NOT vodka. As any water or vodka dissolves the sugar cubes completely. The font is so hard to see because I put this together on my iphone. So here are the instructions in case you can’t read it. 1. Buy some sugar cubes in the s...
This tutoriial is based in part on Fran’s Rose tutorial : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYkPhb-_gDgbut includes wired petals. Take a 20 gauge wire and a small styrofoam egg. The egg should be no bigger than the petal size of a 100mm Jem “Easy Rose” cutter. Use a hot glue gun to attach some glue to the wire and then push the wire up into the base of the egg. Then choose a large petal shaped cutter- cutter is big enough if the egg fits within it when the c...
Another method for ganaching round cakes based on the Upside Down Buttercream method.This method removes the need for a ganaching “lid” or board the same size as the baseboard – It can be extremely difficult to find two boards exactly the same size and shape, unless you cut them yourself – I’m too bone lazy to do that :) Cut cake into three even layers, flip the layer which was the top of the baked cake over and attach to a base board (the same size as the tin the cake was baked in) with g...
In this tutorial I want to show you how to make a fondant ruffle flower. Ruffle flower accessories are chic and fashionable and can even be made out of fondant. They are a unique and clever way to accessorize a cupcake! You will need a circle cutter. I used a 2 inch round cutter to cut out 5 circles. Roll out your fondant so that it is thin. Working with one circle at a time, fold it in half but make sure it is dusted with cornstarch and that the edges are not sticking ...
I had posted these previously in a forum where someone was searching for a moist vanilla cupcake recipe, but thought I’d re-post in the “official” recipe section to make it a little easier to find ;) This is the recipe I’ve been using for my vanilla cupcakes and have had lots of success with them coming out nice and moist! The only thing I’ll caution on is this – if you’re only baking one dozen at a time, leave the rest of your batter in your bowl and re-whip with a spatu...
So … I know how hard and expensive can be to make or buy moulds. So…. I make my own with leftover of fondant and tylose. It doesn’t last long but if you have a plastic original you can always make it again and again…. ;)You may ask me how much tylose…well that will depend how quick you will need your mould. ;)I have a online video now thanks to Learn Cake Decorating online ;)http://www.learncakedecoratingonline.com/#oid=5_1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6N9d...
