Before we start, that is a picture of Keanu Reeves eating a cupcake! Sadly it’s not one of mine or am I the cupcake!! But I thought this picture would be better than just a cupcake alone for today ; ) One of the problems I found when starting baking was cupcake cases peeling away from the cake after baking!This is a big problem when doing batches of cupcakes for customers, It basically means starting over which can make you want to tear your hair out! I stressed for a couple of months ...
This is how we made our very popular Valentine’s Heart Baked Cupcakes ~ First off bake a thin red sponge – this needs to be about 2cm thick but be careful not to overbake it as you will be baking it again in the centre of the cupcake Then cut out hearts from the red sponge with a heart cutter that fits comfortably into your cupcake cases, mine was about 3cm at it’s widest point Then mark the side of the case where you will align your heart with so you know where to ...

Once you have thoroughly mixed the Tylose into th...
I used sugarveil for the first time last weekend. I found it quite easy to do. Fix mix as per the instructions. I left this to sit for about 1/2 hour and then i was eager to use it.
