This is a record-short tutorial, but I thought I’d share it with you. Drying out gumpaste tiaras can be tricky since you want a concave shape. So, I found a very easy way. Here’s how: Materials: drying rack; styrofoam glass Cut two slits on the styrofoam glass and insert it onto the drying rack – it fits nice and snuggly. Then place your gumpaste tiara on top of the glass and let it dry. It will hold a beautiful shape and the glass won’t move at all. This c...
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...
This ruffle flower is a spin off from one of my previous ruffle flower. This is great as a cupcake topper specially for vintage themed cupcakes. Happy caking my friends :)
Lovely Purple Dahlia – Made in gumpaste How I made the purple Dahlia from this photo… What I do when I find a flower I want to make Don’t have the real flower then print the best photo or photos you can find. Look through your cutters to find one which would work best. You don’t always need to buy a cutter since many cutter sets have several components and with a little manipulation you can create the perfect petals shapes. ...

So here is the 10” sponge cake I baked to start :) here is where I demarcated the head… this was guesswork R...
These have been my most popular cake and CakesDecor very kindly selected them as Editor’s Choice last year. I have been promising for ages to put together a guide to making these for those of you who have said ‘I can’t do that’. I hope you will be able to see that, yes you can. All you need is a cake, a pair of real boots as ‘models’ on a stool. Paper. Ruler and cake decorating edibles 1. Cut out the shape of a shoe sole. I did this by placing my ...
