I’m not very good with English so let talk about the pictures, I hope they are understandable. If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them as best I can
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 ...
Ok, This is how to centre dowel a cake if you feel its very tall/top heavy/ etcThere are multiple ways, but this is how I did it for this specific cake. With a little help from my cakey friends :) 1.I cut a circle out from MDF with my new jigsaw cutter (yup yup!) It made lots of noise in the front garden…but you didnt really need to know that. You then counter sink a hole in the centre (not all the way through!) which is the same size as your dowel (in this case 9mm) Put a lit...

I has holes and makes it difficult to get the coral out) Heavy Metal Sauce Pan Stock Pot Whisk Candy Thermometer Silpat Mat Tray Airbrush Color Desiccant Pac...
#Please note, I am a self taught decorator. The way I make things may not be the easiest way or the best way. Its just my way. I have been asked to share how I make my roses so Here is another wee free picture tutorial.
So for this topper I used styrofoam but you can use the same technique for a real cake with edible image. ;) I cut my styrofoam with a Hot wire using the template as my guide. https://www.facebook.com/verusca.walker#!/hotwirefoamfactory?fref=tsI use a sand block to smoothe my styrofoam and cream shortening to stick my fondant.And them I just cut the images from my template and glue it to the fondant with tylose glue. ;)It is easy quick and incredible effective.

I received a lot of interest in this cake board for my latest cake which had a boot on it and so have put together a few pictures I took during the process. 1. Roll out fondant onto board. Mix the fondant to the lightest shade of the stone and add bits of darker shades, roughly moulded in to the paste (I use fairly old fondant mixed with tylose to avoid ripping of the fondant at this stage and also mix bits of old and dry fondant in to create more of an ‘outdoor’ look!) ...
Last week I needed a luau-themed sweet treat to feed a crowd, so I decided to make mini cupcakes with tiki head toppers made out of chocolate rolled fondant. This is a lot of fun and very kid-friendly, so it’s something the whole family can do as a group activity. You’ll need chocolate rolled fondant (modeling chocolate or brown-tinted fondant would also work), a small angled spatula, dog bone or ball tool, veining tool, and thin modeling stick. Roll the fondant into a log,...
