As I was getting ready to make some cacti for a southwestern cake, I realized that I didn’t have a cactus cutter. No worries… I downloaded a picture from clip art, printed it and made a template. The first cactus was just too plain, so I decided to add some texture by using a non-slip shelf cover – the type used to put underneath cakes so they won’t move around – the mat has a great texture, which brought life to my cactus. I rolled out the gumpaste on the t...
Another method for ganaching round cakes based on the Upside Down Buttercream method.This method removes the need for a ganaching “lid” or board the same size as the baseboard – It can be extremely difficult to find two boards exactly the same size and shape, unless you cut them yourself – I’m too bone lazy to do that :) Cut cake into three even layers, flip the layer which was the top of the baked cake over and attach to a base board (the same size as the tin the cake was baked in) with g...

Ok, so this two-toned technique has many applications, but I used it to create a landscape on the side of my cub scout cake. It worked so well, I can’t wait to find a good reason to use it again! Wait until you see how easy it is! Sure you could create a similar look with fondant, but buttercream makes for better eating.Start by smoothly frosting the cake tier with the background color of your choice. Since I’m making a landscape, I frosted my cake in blue for the sky.For my s...
Browsing through the web, I ran across “glam sticks.” To be honest, I had never seen or heard of them before – but what a wonderful idea – kudos to whoever thought of it first! You can purchase them on-line, but they are very easy to make – so after trying a handful at home, I thought I’d share the process with you. Materials: glam ribbon (you can purchase these on line or at Michael’s); lollipop sticks; hot glue gun; measuring tape (not in pict...
Adding Silhouettes to a cake.I wanted several dancers around edge of my cake firstly I googled to find appropriate pictures and sized them accordingly and cut out. (Check them against the height of your cake.)Black sugar paste was mixed with a little tylose powder, wrapped in cling film and left for at least an hour.Pieces of waxed paper were cut so the silhouettes could sit comfortably on each one then taped down to a board.The black sugar paste was flattened slightly then run through a ...

Frost 2-layer 8-in. round in a light regular buttercream covering, since you are putting more icing on w/ rosettes. Strip inside of bag in deeper pink icing & medium pink …or small amount strip w/ pink food coloring w/ toothpick, or long handle teaspoon.. or butter knife…. Fill bag w/ lighter pink or white icing if you prefer more contrast. I will often put a deep and medium shade color in sides of bag, and then fill w/ pale or white icing for 3-tone effect, which is what I...
