A Beginners Story- This has been my experiences over the last couple of months As a newbie/beginner I thought I would share my experiences for all other newbies-you may pick something up- and maybe for some others you may get a chuckle out of my inexperience- Everything listed was learned by NOT doing it the right way- Just learning all this as I go. So, let me begin by saying that EVERYTHING takes 3x longer then you think it will and it seems I use 3x the amount of product I think I w...

Before we start, that is a picture of Keanu Reeves eating a cupcake! Sadly it’s not one of mine or am I the cupcake!! But I thought this picture would be better than just a cupcake alone for today ; ) One of the problems I found when starting baking was cupcake cases peeling away from the cake after baking!This is a big problem when doing batches of cupcakes for customers, It basically means starting over which can make you want to tear your hair out! I stressed for a couple of months ...
Todays cake started with a 9” madeira, what followed next was nothing short of miraculous. My lovely friend Nylah has been singing the praises of ganache over buttercream for a while now and so I thought I would give it a go.So, 900g of white chocolate and 300ml of boiling cream whipped together off the heat and there it was, the perfect medium for covering a cake. I filled the cake and then spread the remainder over the top and sides and got to work with my palette knife smoothing and ...

Yesterday sadly I experienced my first major cake disaster since I’ve started baking professionally. I must say it was sad and heart breaking, but I managed. I’ve had mishaps before where I’ve been able to fixed them on the spot. This particular one left me no choice but to start over.
