Last week I needed a luau-themed sweet treat to feed a crowd, so I decided to make mini cupcakes with tiki head toppers made out of chocolate rolled fondant. This is a lot of fun and very kid-friendly, so it’s something the whole family can do as a group activity. You’ll need chocolate rolled fondant (modeling chocolate or brown-tinted fondant would also work), a small angled spatula, dog bone or ball tool, veining tool, and thin modeling stick. Roll the fondant into a log,...

This is such an easy flower to make. Excellent quick decorations for a last minute cake orders when a client wants just a nice simple cake. Roll your fonfant and cut circles by using a circle cutter. The size of the cutter will depend of how big you want to make your pompom flower. You have to make about 7-8 circles depending on how “fluffy” you want your flower to be. Fold your circle in half slightly, don’t push it too hard. Then again fold it in half slig...
There was a time when I was doing purse cake almost every week, and sometimes more than one. Creating that worn look and texture of a real material led me to experimenting with plastic wrap. Here is the result! I’d say it adds an extra dimension and interest to the whole piece, because we all love our own special purses, even if it has some wrinkles to it! The extra plus of having plastic wrap is that you can pick the whole piece, fondant and wrap, lay it across the cake and smooth ...
Hi everyone! This is my first real tutorial and there are some missing photos so bare with me. I hope I have explained this clearly enough and that it’s not a terrible bore. :) Here we go: I started by tracing and cutting (3) 12” circles and (2) 3 1/2” circles out of foam board with an xacto knife. The 12” will be part of the base of the cake and the 3 1/2” will be for top of tower/roof. I then glued the 3 foam board pieces and (1) 12” cake bo...

After spending the day at the arboretum picking out the perfect pumpkins and looking at the golden sunflowers I decided to bake up a batch of sugar cookies and paint them with sunflowers and sunflower leaves. Lately, my attention has turned toward edible painting on cakes and cookies. I use a one stroke method to paint most of my designs. One stroke painting is a decorative painting technique… Royal Icing Recipe, with raw egg whites907 grams/ 7 1/2-cup icing sugar, sifted 4 tim...
So how did I do it? Start preparing the “Taco Shells” a day or days ahead the cake is needed. (Since I can only work on cakes at night due to my regular work – I prepared the “Taco Shells” 3 days ahead). TACO SHELLS – What to use to make the shells? I’ve seen two versions – one using a Cookie Dough and another using melted choco-melts. They are great but not what I had in mind. I’d like it to look like a real hard taco shells. I...
