The following video tutorial will show you how I did the “smocking effect” on fondant as shown on these two photos. Here’s the link to the tutorial:
Karlene, is a lovely 11 year old (just turned) who is so charming. I met her two years ago. (I know her mom) She was looking at one of my cake photo albums when she said, “I love these cupcakes! They have the Pink Breast Cancer Ribbon on them and my mom has breast cancer.” Not what you would expect from your average 9 year old.Karlene, is 11 going on 40.You can actually hold an adult conversation with her. She sent me a photo of a cake, similar to this one, but she wanted rainbow ...
I’m not very good with English so let talk about the pictures, I hope they are understandable. If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them as best I can
To make gum paste leaves on floral wire, you’ll need: 26 gauge (food safe) wire, green gum paste, rolling pin, angled offset spatula, CelBoard, gum glue, rose leaf cutter, dusting pouch, and a leaf veining mold or shaping foam and veining tool. CelBoards are nifty rolling boards that have grooves along one side and circular indentions on the other. I’m not sure how I would make wired gum paste leaves without one, because they make such a handy ridge on the back of the leaf for ...
OK when someone wants a fast cake this flower will make a statement without taking ages You will need a parrot tulip cutter & viener or similar (these ones are from www.sugardelites.com)Sugarpaste with extra tylose (about1tsp per 250g – you want it to dry quick halve it if you have a couple of days)This is coloured with Chefmaster – Tropical Fushiaedible glue & brushThat werid tool you never thought you would use on the other end of you veining toolbowl, foil & tiss...
So for this topper I used styrofoam but you can use the same technique for a real cake with edible image. ;) I cut my styrofoam with a Hot wire using the template as my guide. https://www.facebook.com/verusca.walker#!/hotwirefoamfactory?fref=tsI use a sand block to smoothe my styrofoam and cream shortening to stick my fondant.And them I just cut the images from my template and glue it to the fondant with tylose glue. ;)It is easy quick and incredible effective.
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,...
I received a lot of interest in this cake board for my latest cake which had a boot on it and so have put together a few pictures I took during the process. 1. Roll out fondant onto board. Mix the fondant to the lightest shade of the stone and add bits of darker shades, roughly moulded in to the paste (I use fairly old fondant mixed with tylose to avoid ripping of the fondant at this stage and also mix bits of old and dry fondant in to create more of an ‘outdoor’ look!) ...
For those who are interested I made a how-to of my crochet baby uggs. You can also find this tutorial on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SweetlakeCakes. The uggs: The template (the sole is 5,5 cm/2.2 inches): The materials: Cut the sole from a slice of fondant mixed with tylose of about 0.2 inch/0,5 cm thick, 2 times.. Turn for the second sole the template to so that you have a right and left sole: Make a fondant ball + tylose of 15 grams and form the ...
So …. I am back from Holiday down the coast of NSW. On my trip I visited a scrapbook shop call Amanda’s of Mogo. And I saw this beautiful Wood Florishes. Spotlight have them too and they are very cheap. ;) Around $3.00 each. Cool right ??? And they are perfect for making moulds and embossing. Fantastic!!!!!! Don’t forget you can use leftover fondant for make your moulds. ;)
