Hi, I’m a new cake maker and have just created my first real cake – an Alice in Wonderland 3 tier topsy turvy cake, covered in wonderful fondant characters, including Alice, White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts… (view here—> http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/32594) I made a few mistakes along the way, including poking some toothpicks through characters heads, failing at making white toffee in the first instance etc. I’m hoping that by sharing my blog on how I made ...
My cakey friends, here’s another tutorial on how I made the fantasy/ruffle flower shown on the above photo. You can use 50/50 gum paste and fondant mixture or plain gum paste or plain fondant to make this. Happy caking :)
My cakey friends, here’s a video tutorial on how I made the big ruffle flower on the above cake. Just a heads up, I used 50/50 gum paste and fondant mixture on all the ruffle flowers shown in this video.
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.

The making of the Moth Orchid Part 1 It is hard to explain every detail in a mini turorial, but I believe this can get you started… Surprise… I decided to post a basic mini tutorial on the Moth Orchid instead of only the finished flower. Being a very popular orchid request and very beautiful I think it is a good choice. This is a basic mini tutorial since not all steps are shown or explained in detail.
