No Cutter Gumpaste Rose Class

I was asked to teach six 6th grade girls how create gum paste roses, for a slumber party activity. After careful deliberation I decided it would be best to have a class on making roses without venires or cutters. Roses are extremely technical and with six eleven old girls I thought their attention span might be taxed. It was the correct choice, they had loads of fun and I held their attention to the end. Each created  their own rose for a cupcake. I wanted to share the class with all of you! Flower paste rose class and video: Equipment: 1-...

Sugar Pansies for My Grandma

I dedicate this flower paste tutorial to grandmother, who past away Thursday. My grandma  was small in stature, but giant in heart!

Words cannot express the joy Grandma brought to everyone she came in contact with;  in her honor I share this gumpaste pansy tutorial. My technique for pansies is individual wired petals, although you can build a pansy in a...

Fondant Frills and Sculpted Modeling Chocolate Easter Cake

Fondant Frills and Sculpted Modeling Chocolate Easter Cake

As I was designing these Easter cakes, I keep thinking of Easter bonnets, however I did not want to just place a bonnet on top of cake. I finally decided to mould a little face, out of modeling chocolate, to wear the bonnet. Modeling chocolate consists of two, in my case three, ingredients (chocolate , corn syrup, and icing sugar).   Seems fairly easy, but not necessarily in all cases. If you over mix the corn syrup to the chocolate, it will become a greasy mess. Also, if you do not have complete contact with melting chocolates, you end with...

Edible Hand Painting, a Cake Decorating Technique

It’s official!  I have become addicted to painting cookies and cakes! Hand painting has become increasingly more popular in the last few years. It’s a great decorating technique, limited to only your own imagination. You can customize an Easter theme, like the cookie above, or design an entire wedding. What would be more spatular than a tiered cake with mirroring cookie favors and floral centre pieces. You could add gumpaste flowers as a cake topper that match the paint flowers on the cake. Invitations and thank you cards could be...

Gumpaste Cherry Blossom Tutorial

Cherry Blossoms have been a favorite of mine as long as I can remember. Their dreamy presence along with the soft beautiful pink colour are an attention grabber and make them the perfect cake topper for any special occasion, especially weddings. I decided to research the cherry blossom flower and the gorgeous tree they grow on. I was surprise to learn the calyx of the cherry blossom is primarily deep pink with a small amount 1/8 to 1/4 of calyx accented with a moss green colour. They bloom for about 14 days, which only adds to the allure of...

Easter Basket with Royal Icing Needle Point

Needlepoint royal icing piping is a unique technique to take your sugar cookies or cakes (even cupcakes) to the next level. I adore the intricate piping skills that can be achieved with a cornet and nozzle. Although piping a needlepoint pattern onto a sugar cookie or cake is pretty straight forward it is time consuming. A detailed needlepoint royal icing cookie can take several hours to finish. The end result is a sensational work of art. Anikó Vargáné Orbán has amazing needlepoint royal icing work, visit here site ,I promise you will not...

Fondant and Royal Icing Frill Sugar Cookies for Easter

Easter is just around the corner and every year I create special Easter baskets filled with custom cookies,candies, and other treats. I found this large egg cookie cutter and visioned an exquisite frilled sugar cookie with a light ombre effect. After applying the design I realized it resembled a Halcyon Day’s egg DF had given me yeas ago. (I collect them). My china cabinet has become a place of inspiration for cake decorating lately. Easter Sunday is April 20th, and will be here before you know it. I thought I would be fun to give an...
