Ruffles are everywhere these days, and recently I had a bride want ruffles on her wedding cake. But not fondant ruffles – Oh no, she wanted butter cream ruffles. So I took a few hours to figure them out and I documented the process. Let’s start with an image of the technique, almost completed: Pretty, huh? The best part is, you only need 2 tips to accomplish this look! I have seen a rose tip used to make ruffles, but I have found that the Ateco Tip 070 is absolut...

I was showing Sydney a two tone royal icing brush embroidery (that is a mouthful), and she thought the cookies would be a wonderful dessert to create for Mother’s Day. I must say I agree, the cookies would look exquisite in a clear top box with a blush pink ribbon. In fact I am planning on remaking the exact cookies for my 99 year old grandmother, she taught me my early culinary skills. I can remember when I was in college my grandma would send me care…Read the whole story » ...
Mix your batter as usual, and add a tiny amount of whatever colour you decide that you are going to use. For this cake I am using pink, use a cocktail stick to add the colour in gradually so you only need to add a tiny bit for the first layer. Bake and cool. Make sure that when you put the batter in the cake tin that you use the same amount of batter for all other layers, but I added more for the darkest layer. (bottom) For the second layer add more pink so that it is a bit darker ...
How to ship cupcakes Two weeks ago I was on the phone with my mom and she said, “You need to send cupcakes for your dad’s 75th birthday!” My thought was, “Yeah, right mom, how on earth am I going to do that?” Then, one morning while I was in the shower (I get all my bright ideas in the shower) I came up with an idea, and it worked. Materials: 1 dozen baked cupcakes about 2 cups of butter cream icing ready made dried fondant decorations zip lock bags pastry bag...

I’ve been asked many times how I made this cake. The cool “kaleidoscope” effect is pretty trippy, right? Are you having a flashback to the groovy era of the 1960’s? It’s a pretty simple technique that is sure to impress. 1) Make a white cake batter…box or from scratch…doesn’t matter. 2) Divide the batter evenly into 6 bowls. 3) Color each of the bowls of batter a different color of the rainbow using gel paste….I used Wilton...
