Amongst the comments and questions on Facebook I noticed a few questions regarding new brands of colours on the market. Since there have been so many developments in products since I started making cakes (I am going back as far as when you could get yellow, blue, green and red liquid from the supermarket) I thought I would compare a few brands to see which I liked best and hopefully give you some helpful information regarding colours.
This post will show you how to create this simple yet very effective decoration for the sides of your cakes.
I used it on a recent 40th birthday cake and it looked great.
In this class I will be teaching you how to recreate a 2 tiered version of my vintage pink & black wedding cake. Learn the valuable skills of decorative piping with royal icing as used in this stunning and elegant design.
In the early days of my cake business I avoided Royal Icing like the plague. Years and many piped cakes later I wonder why I was so scared of using it but I talk to beginners who feel the same way as I did so I thought I would write a simple guide to making and colouring it and hopefully dispel some of the worries people have.
Is there a quicker alternative to lining cake tins?
This post will show you how to make the type of flowers I made for the Teapot birthday cake. I call them fantasy flowers because you can decide how you want them to look and be really creative with them. There are no specific flowers included and they look fab!
