had a blast at the London BBC Good Food Show! Our stand was so
popular and the 'try before you buy' workshop an absolute winner.

At The Pud!
This super cute novelty Christmas cake will put a smile on the faces of all ages from 1-100! Use a Christmas pudding mould with your favourite chocolate sponge recipe and cover with our Sattina real chocolate sugarpaste to create a mouth-watering dessert cake that could even be served with some double cream.
Invest in a holly plunger cutter to create perfect leaves every time and finally, put the sparkle into your Christmas by sprinkling red glitter (remove before eating) over the berries on the top.
the Christmas Tree......
At the top of my Christmas wish list has to be this fabulous Christmas tree tin.
It comes with a perfectly sized red square cake drum so all you
need to do is cover the cake and create your decorations. I used a
selection of our Christmas cutters to adorn this Christmas tree and I used our Sattina sugarpaste for them all.

Christmas Present Cake
Make your presents look good enough to eat this year using our set of 2 deep square tins. You can choose your wrapping paper colours to suit your own Christmas colour theme from our vast range of Sattina sugarpaste.
The best way to achieve perfectly sized sugar ribbons is using the ingenious multi-ribbon cutter.
Make a gift tag using florist paste
which has been rolled out, cut into shape and dried over night until
hard. You can write the message using an edible ink pen or pipe the
writing in royal icing.

a child I remember the extent of decorating our Christmas cake was
cleaning off last year's royal icing from our plastic holly and robin
decorations...how times have changed! You can bring those memories
back to life with our retro range so have a browse and get all nostalgic.
Add a teaspoon of glycerine to your royal icing to keep it from setting hard. For a light, fluffy royal icing, try Squires Royal Icing Mix which will create the perfect snow scene cake covering.
you don't have much time to spend on making decorations for your
Christmas cake it doesn't mean it won't look spectacular. Our
range of non-edible and edible decorations is amazing and will jazz up any plain white cake (including shop bought ones!)
Christmas arrives in my house, so does a teeny weeny bit of craziness.
This is mainly shown in the absurd amount of decorations that are put up
and also the abundance of cookies that are made to hang on the tree.
Having a massive selection of Christmas cookie cutters does help somewhat and here are just a few of the ones that will be dangling off my tree this yuletide...
classy Christmas cupcake kits will definitely be in my shopping basket
this year. Nothing could be simpler or more effective. Not
only do they make lovely cupcakes for your guests but the packaging is
so delightful that I am tempted to give them as presents to my cakey
so lovely to know that the decoration is sorted and all I have to worry
about are the lovely flavours that are going to fill these stunning
Add a little more glamour to these already chic cupcakes by spraying the buttercream with edible lustre spray
One To Try At Home
This clean and simple sparkling Christmas Wreath cake is the perfect choice to try at home.
My latest 'Desert Island Decorating Tool' has to be the shell border mould
which creates the most perfect shells around the bottom of cakes
without ever touching a piping bag! Simply dust the mould with
either a lustre dust or cornflour to ensure no sticking and then add
Sattina sugarpaste, tidy up the edges and release from the mould.
Looking at the picture below, would you know the difference?
