This is a pillow cake for a 50th birthday. The shoe is made of fondant/gumpaste and completely edible. We two-toned the fondant with purple on the bottom and biege on top with white royal accents. 10 inch and 6 inch tiers are of yellow cake and filled with chocolate mousse and oreo cookie crumbs. The pans were the newest in the Wilton line and simply great to use. We were so impressed that we can’t wait till we need to make another. Here is a brief showcasing of what we did an...

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 ...
I have been asked several times for a tutorial on this, so I have made this video which is a collection of photos I took at the time and is by no means the best way to do one. It is merely a guide if you haven’t made one before and need ideas! I was very new to cake decorating and did not follow any guides or tutorials and was simply working from a photograph of a bike… so… there are many, many flaws. This was my first technical sugarpaste construction f...
Mix your batter as usual, and add a tiny amount of whatever colour you decide that you are going to use. For this cake I am using pink, use a cocktail stick to add the colour in gradually so you only need to add a tiny bit for the first layer. Bake and cool. Make sure that when you put the batter in the cake tin that you use the same amount of batter for all other layers, but I added more for the darkest layer. (bottom) For the second layer add more pink so that it is a bit darker ...
This is part two of the Fashion Inspired Fondant: Great Gatsby Hat... The royal Icing filigree hatbox. You will need five sugar cookie squares 2-1/2 by 2-1/2 for each hat.

The bride”s mother and the bride to be… Bobbie’s Special Sugar Cookie Reci...
I have been wanting to create a tutorial on the art of scroll piping with royal icing. It is easier to learn on a sugar cookie prior to an entire cake, piping an entire cake can take hours (even days depending on design and layers), while a cookie is not as time consuming. The candle light cookie was inspired by Eddie Spence’s book The Art of Royal Icing: A Unique Guide to Cake Decoration by a World-class Tutor (this would be a… For additional information »
I was asked to design Santa Claus cupcakes for a client’s office party, as luck would have it Sydney was home for Thanksgiving break. I must admit it was exhilarating to be baking along side Sydney. I love when we work as a team and I take full advantage of our family time! The Santa Claus cupcakes were inspired by the movie “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Originally I had sketched out for elves and the big man himself (Santa Claus);… For recipe and materials list »
