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 ...
I have be decorating cakes for 3 months shy of two years now and have had many challenges decorating cakes in a climate that is always hot and humid. My little cake studio is just off of my office and I run the AC at about 77F to 80F ( electricity is super expensive in the Cayman Islands ) and as you can tell by my shiny face :0) in the video it is also very humid around 80 to95% most of the time. My butter cream cakes go to beach parties and beach weddings and never melt I used the online...
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...
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...
The final product =)
I came up with this last summer after struggling to try and find a way to fill small candy gem molds with isomalt. It’s fast, cheap and easy when you need a quick gem and don’t fill like working with hot sugar. You will need: candy gem molds unflavored gelatin (I use Knox) food color paintbrush piping gel or royal icing You need to make the gelatin, in order to do that mix 2 1/2 parts water to 1 part gelatin. I normally do 3TBSP gelatin (about...
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...
Building figurines with a wireframe skeleton allows for more dynamic poses and positioning. I like to use a thick, flexible aluminium wire which is easily available in craft stores. First, bend the wire into a basic proportioned shape, winding the wire round itself to add strength. Allow a long end of wire at the base to stick the wireframe into a piece of foam. Pose the wireframe in the desired position. Wrap aluminium foil around the body to bulk it up as desired. You could...
