Hello!! After several requests to do a tutorial for my Mickey & Goofy Car, I finally had some free time and did a gathering of some photos.

Crystallizing flowers will give your cakes that special touch all bakers long for – although it takes a little bit of work, the end result is well worth it. Here’s how: Ingredients: 1 Tbsp. gelatin (Knox can be used, but it tends to lump) 6 Tbsp. Water at room temperature Sprinkle the gelatin over water and mix right away – if bubbles form, skim them off the top. Allow mixture to rest for 2-3 minutes until it reaches a sponge-like consistency. Take hardened gelat...
With Easter just around the corner, I thought I would share this tutorial for calla lily cupcakes! I have also included my recipe for Coconut Macaroon cupcakes and frosting! Enjoy!! Step 1: Roll out your white fondant or gumpaste to 1/8” thick. Use a calla lily cutter or a heart shaped cutter to create the calla lily. Step 2: Form the cut-out heart (point side down) around the plastic calla lily former (you can buy one of these at Michael’s or AC Moore). You can also use an ic...
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 ...

My household is obsessed with The Elf on the Shelf this time of year so I had to turn the little guy into a cake topper. I took some photos along the way! I have several homemade face molds from my daughter’s dolls. I thought this Lemon Meringue one was around the right size and shape. You simply make the face mold by impressing the doll face in gumpaste and allowing it to dry hard. You can then use it as a mold. Here I’ve pressed a flesh tone ball of fondant/gumpast...

Introduction:This tutorial gives you instructions on how to create the flowers in the centre of my stained glass cake To start with, let’s talk a little bit about this flower. The number of petals ranges from about 5-15, and they are generally an unsymmetrical flower with respect to the petal arrangement. The 6 petal flowers can be symmetrical and the petals are in layers of three, with the layer above over the joins of the layer below. As for the shape of the petals, usually they are ro...
First, you’ll need to gather your resources! So, rummage through your goodies and accumulate your loot! Here you go: A clay extruder (we used the Makin’s Professional Clay Extruder) with the largest circle diskFondant in all of your favorite colors! Now, if you grab your trusty set of real crayons, take a look at them. Do you notice that those pesky wrappers are actually a different color than the crayon? Yeah, I sighed too. So–make sure when you grab your red fondant, take a b...
