I have been obsessed recently with modeling chocolate and all the beautiful things you can create with it. I was just playing around with my white and red modeling chocolate when I accidentally mixed a little bit of red with the white and so this Blush Pink Rose was born done FREE HAND. Here’s my little video tutorial on how I made this Blush Pink Rose :) Enjoy and Happy Caking :)
To make (non-wired) gum paste carnations, you’ll need: gum paste, rolling pin, small modeling tool (or popsicle stick, chopstick, etc.), carnation cutter or a scalloped round cutter, shaping foam, dusting pouch, dog bone/ball tool, veining tool, frill stick, gum glue, food safe brush, empty egg carton.

This is the most popular post on my blog, and the most viewed video on my YouTube channel, because it’s something we all have struggled with. In this video tutorial, I will show you my method for getting my cakes ice-rink smooth. And as an added bonus, I will provide my buttercream recipe below the video window. This technique works best with an all butter icing. Feel free to try it with your own recipe, but I am providing my “kids” butter cream recipe if you want to...

With the holiday season approaching (quite fast) I thought it might be fun to share a tutorial on a sugar snowman cake. I was inspired by Alan Dunn’s Christmas Cakes (a perfect gift for any cake enthusiast). I knew the cake would be a fun project, but I must admit I was caught off guard at the amount of excitement that came over me as I began bringing the cake to life. I found myself giggling like a first grader as he become more real. I wish… The Hat ...
Here’s my video tutorial for making a sleeping baby in a Santa outfit. It can be made in sugarpaste/ modelling paste/ modelling chocolate/ marzipan. The sizes of the body parts relate to the size of the head, so it could be made small enough for cupcakes or larger for bigger cakes by simply adjusting the sizes of the head/ head mould. I hope you like the video!

In order to make gum paste carnations on wires, you need to make the bases in advance. I like to make mine at least a day ahead and let them dry overnight. You’ll need 22 gauge (food safe) floral wire, needle nose pliers, gum glue (dissolve a pinch of gum paste in a small amount of water), a small food safe brush, and gum paste. Using the pliers, make a small hook at one end of the wire. Pinch off a small amount of gum paste and roll into a little bulb. Dip the hooked end of t...
One of the issues I have with orders is that most of my orders come in last minute leaving me not enough time to dry my figures. I made one such baby booties due to lack of time and then noticed that customers choose these over my other fancy template booties that took longer to make. In this video I share how I make the baby booties . The baby shoes video can be found on my Facebook page under videos . Currently it’s for Facebook only as it’s a treat for my 12K milestone. ...
