This is our first attempt at an iconic character. We were pretty happy with the results!We couldn’t find any help on line, so this is how we made our goofy. We hope it can help! First always make your colors in estimated sizes so that you have it ready when you need it. Stopping to make a color can really slow up your progress and take up a lot of time. Just keep in ziploc as you work. Make 3 balls out of the blue. This will end up the body and the two legs. Roll t...
How to make a 3D World Cake . I bake my cake on the shape of a ball. Ganache it to join to sides together and to correct imperfection this also will give more strength to your ball. I always open my fondant bigger than the size I need, special for a round shape. and I smooth it with a piece of fondant. I google search my image “world map”.http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b5/GURPS_Reign_of_Steel_world_map.pngI cut my conutries and useit as template to cut my fondant....
A very simple cupcake tutorial for Halloween, I’m using only pictures hoping they speak for themselves.Thanks for looking, I hope you’ll find it useful.
This is a tutorial to create a sculpted or 3D sitting dog cake like my ‘Freddie’ cake. You could adapt this to different breeds (even different animals!) and make it in a variety of sizes. I used a 14 inch board and two chocolate sponge cakes baked in 2 cup and 4 cup pyrex bowls. This isn’t a difficult cake to create but IS time consuming (it probably took me a total of 6 or 7 hours). Other ingredients/tools you would need are: buttercream to fill and cover ...
PVC “HOW TO” I am still a new cake artist, and am far from perfect. I had an order for a children’s birthday party, in which the customer wanted a 3D character from a popular children’s show, Yo Gabba Gabba. I searched all over Cakesdcor and CC, as wellk as on the web, and was not able tyo find very many tutorials, let alone info on how to build PVC armature. I found a premade armature set on Caljava, but for $90.. well, that’s a tad expensive. I studied the s...
This tutorial covers setting up the support structure and decoration of a “Tangled” Rapunzel Tower Cake as can be seen on https://www.facebook.com/CustomCakeDesigns .... This support structure was made for a cake that needed to cater for 70 desert size portions of cake. As it was a rather large cake, a strong ‘tower’ was needed to support the weight and hence plumbers plastic tubing / piping was selected as the main core of the tower. (This plastic tubing and ca...
Here is my Spotty Dotty Cake Tutorial, I hope you’ll like it. https://www.facebook.com/rosieoriginals
I made this cake for my husband’s birthday. I used my traditional Russian Honey cake recipe which is my husband’s favourite cake. But you can use any other cake recipe (except for carrot cake because it will be too crumbly). First, I shaped the cake into a shoe using a knife; I also used a teaspoon to scope out some cake to make a hollow part around the ankle. I covered the shoe shaped cake with white chocolate ganache using a spatula and I used a teaspoon for the hollow. ...
I had to make Christening Gown cookies recently and I did not have a Baby Gown cutter (I have the more adult version that does not work here) but I did have a Bell cutter which I used and here’s how:
These have been my most popular cake and CakesDecor very kindly selected them as Editor’s Choice last year. I have been promising for ages to put together a guide to making these for those of you who have said ‘I can’t do that’. I hope you will be able to see that, yes you can. All you need is a cake, a pair of real boots as ‘models’ on a stool. Paper. Ruler and cake decorating edibles 1. Cut out the shape of a shoe sole. I did this by placing my ...
