To make gum paste leaves on floral wire, you’ll need: 26 gauge (food safe) wire, green gum paste, rolling pin, angled offset spatula, CelBoard, gum glue, rose leaf cutter, dusting pouch, and a leaf veining mold or shaping foam and veining tool. CelBoards are nifty rolling boards that have grooves along one side and circular indentions on the other. I’m not sure how I would make wired gum paste leaves without one, because they make such a handy ridge on the back of the leaf for ...

So for this topper I used styrofoam but you can use the same technique for a real cake with edible image. ;) I cut my styrofoam with a Hot wire using the template as my guide. https://www.facebook.com/verusca.walker#!/hotwirefoamfactory?fref=tsI use a sand block to smoothe my styrofoam and cream shortening to stick my fondant.And them I just cut the images from my template and glue it to the fondant with tylose glue. ;)It is easy quick and incredible effective.
For those who are interested I made a how-to of my crochet baby uggs. You can also find this tutorial on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SweetlakeCakes.

Turn for the second sole the template to so that you have a right and left sole: Make a fondant ball + tylose of 15 grams and form the ...
Ok, This is how to centre dowel a cake if you feel its very tall/top heavy/ etcThere are multiple ways, but this is how I did it for this specific cake. With a little help from my cakey friends :) 1.I cut a circle out from MDF with my new jigsaw cutter (yup yup!) It made lots of noise in the front garden…but you didnt really need to know that. You then counter sink a hole in the centre (not all the way through!) which is the same size as your dowel (in this case 9mm) Put a lit...

I just posted this on facebook today and thought I’d share with all of you here. It was a trick I learned in College and still use today. It’s my first tutorial and quite simple; but, it is useful if you’ve just run out of royal icing or buttercream, lost that grass tip, want your grass a bit finer than from a garlic press or don’t yet have an extruder. Hopefully it will be helpful to a few of you. Thanks for looking. :) You only need 5 tools:■a mesh sieve■a thi...
I am not an expert at this by any means. I have just done a ton of trial and lots of errors so I wanted to share what I learned so far. If anyone has anymore tips please let me know and I will adjust the tutorial. What you will need: Isomalt Crystals Distilled Water Ice Cubes (I recommend not using bagged ice. I has holes and makes it difficult to get the coral out) Heavy Metal Sauce Pan Stock Pot Whisk Candy Thermometer Silpat Mat Tray Airbrush Color Desiccant Pac...
I received a lot of interest in this cake board for my latest cake which had a boot on it and so have put together a few pictures I took during the process. 1. Roll out fondant onto board. Mix the fondant to the lightest shade of the stone and add bits of darker shades, roughly moulded in to the paste (I use fairly old fondant mixed with tylose to avoid ripping of the fondant at this stage and also mix bits of old and dry fondant in to create more of an ‘outdoor’ look!) ...
So …. I am back from Holiday down the coast of NSW. On my trip I visited a scrapbook shop call Amanda’s of Mogo. And I saw this beautiful Wood Florishes. Spotlight have them too and they are very cheap. ;) Around $3.00 each. Cool right ??? And they are perfect for making moulds and embossing. Fantastic!!!!!! Don’t forget you can use leftover fondant for make your moulds. ;)
