Dear Readers,

 

 

We are in the middle of Christmas fever here at Cake Craft World.  Santas are flying off the shelves in record time and there is glitter and tinsel everywhere!  I have put together some clever little ideas for you to try in the run up to Christmas and most would make lovely presents for your friends and family.

 

I had a great response to my first video tutorial and I would like to thank you for your support.  The next video in the series is now available.

 

 

 

Please pass the link on to all your friends and family and share the cake love!

 

I have a cute little download for you to do with the children.  My jolly Santa cupcakes are always a hit with my daughter and she never tires of making them.  Give them a try by clicking here.

 



 

 

 

It is time for me to go now but I would like to thank you all for your comments, photos and interest in my newsletter throughout the year and I am excited about bringing you more fun ideas and offers in 2013.  Until next time, happy baking and happy Christmas.

 

 

 

 
 


Frolicking Reindeer Cupcakes

 

Our banner picture features some stunning blue cupcakes with Silver Reindeer, but how did we achieve such a fresh vibrant blue when using a creamy yellow buttercream? We have the perfect solution of course - Wilton's White Icing Colour Liquid and the new Sugarflair Turquoise Paste Colour.  

 

When the white icing liquid is added to buttercream, it turns completely white! You can then add the turquoise paste colour to achieve a cool, icy blue instead of settling for a yellowy dull blue often caused by the colour of the butter. To create a lovely two tone effect with your buttercream, fill one side of a large Blue Disposable Plastic Savoy Bag (don't forget to drop in your Jem 1M tube first) with the white and the other side with the blue buttercream.  When you twist the top of the icing bag, the colours will naturally work their way down to the tube and then when they come out the end, they will blend perfectly.

  

 


The Green Board Is Back In Town!

 

 

To celebrate the festive period, we have back in stock the fantastic 18" x 12" High Density Green Non-Stick Roll Out Board.  If you haven't got one, then put it on your Christmas list NOW!

 

 

Only 23.99

    

 


'Tis The Season For Floral   

Textured Mats

 

 

 

Glam up your cupcakes and cookies with this set of 6 different Floral Texture Mats. They are perfect for use with sugarpaste; just roll it out, lay your chosen design mat over the top and firmly press down onto the sugarpaste. Cut a circle the same size as the top of your cupcake with a Round Metal Pastry Cutter and then gently lift onto the top of your cupcake. To embellish even further, spray with one of our Edible Lustre Sprays and pick out the design with our Rejuvenator Spirit & Edible Gold Sparkle Lustre Dust Kit. These mats can also be used on buttercream to create some beautiful effects but make sure you leave it to harden otherwise you may get in a mess.

 

 


Jelly Nose Christmas Cupcakes

 

 

 

 

These little Edible Ruby Jelly Hearts will be featuring in our Valentine Newsletter but we cannot resist using them as Christmas jelly noses! 

 

 


Skating Santas

 

 

This is my favourite picture of the season.  Aren't these Santas the cutest things ever!  Perhaps they are practicing for the next Dancing on Ice series?

 

 

 


A Fruity Christmas Tree

 

The Christmas Tree Moulds that were featured in last month's newsletter have now been used to bake fruit cakes in VERY successfully.  They come in 2 different sizes and are perfect as a disposable baking tin, click here for the larger size. If you don't want to cover your fruit cake in marzipan and icing, you can just decorate your bare tree with Scrumptious Gold Star Sprinkles and finish off with a pretty Gold Glitter Dot Ribbon.  The smaller mould fits perfectly into an Economy 4 Cavity White Window Cupcake Box with Gold Stars, but take the cupcake holder out first.

Red and Green Spells 'Christmas'

 

 

 

This is my favourite cupcake of the season. I love the Green Holly Cupcake Cases, the creaminess of the Vanilla Frosting, the tradition of the Light Green Icing Holly Decorations and the prettiness of the Red Ribbon with White Christmas Trees..... Simply perfect.

 

 

 

 


Take And Make

 

 

This is a perfect take and make.  Take a Christmas fruit cake (any size, any shape) and cover with sugarpaste (any colour).  Next, buy this brilliant Christmas Stockings, Bows and Holly Garland Set to make a beautifully decorated masterpiece! We have created a garland with the edible holly, tied the ribbon into bows and placed them above the stockings so they look like they're hanging over the mantel piece. This is a lovely idea for a cake if you're having guests on Christmas Eve and after you have eaten the cake, the stockings make great tree decorations!.

Stunning Stollen Scene

 

 

You could pick any festive treat to pile up into a mountain and decorate with all of our traditional non edible decorations such as Snow Covered Christmas Trees, Small Plastic Holly Sprigs, Plastic Reindeer, Red Christmas Chalet with Tree and a good old traditional Small Gold Happy Christmas Motto. I have piled slices of Stollen onto a Coloured Cake Board and dusted with icing sugar to finish.

*** Reach For The Stars ***

 

 

 

 

  

We love this new Little Venice Cake Company Clear Stars Impressions Rolling Pin and it has arrived just in time for Christmas.  Just roll over sugarpaste to create a fabulous stars design as I have done in the picture. I have painted some of the stars using our Rejuvenator Spirit and Gold Sparkle Lustre Dust Kit, also on Special Offer.

Poinsettia Garland Patchwork  Cutter & Stencil

 

Just 3 simple steps to create this stunning looking decoration on the sides or tops of your cakes. 

 

 

 

Roll out some Modelling Paste or Florist Paste (whichever you prefer to use) to approx. 2mm thick.  Carefully use the patchwork cutter to cut out the shape for the poinsettia and leave to dry for approx. 15mins.

 

 

 

 

When your paste is slightly set, rub a very thin layer of Jem Petal Base over the surface of your paste and lay the stencil over the top, ensuring that both shapes match. Tip a tiny amount of Red and Forest Green Sugarflair Blossom Tint Dusting Colour into a Paint Palette and, using a Dusting Brush, gently sweep the colour over the stencil making sure that it stays in the area and doesn't spread to another part of the design.   

 

I also used Radiant Gold Edible Lustre Dust to give the design some sparkle. Once finished, lift off the stencil and attach to either the top or the side of your cake with Edible Glue or royal icing.

 

The finished effect is simply stunning yet so quick and easy to achieve.  

 

 

 


Dinner Party Croquembouche Set

 

 

Croquembouche Set

 

 

This ingenious new product is just the trick for impressing your dinner party guests over the coming festive season and New Year.  It is suitable for absolute beginners as you can even use frozen profiteroles to construct your tower and it comes with clear step by step instructions.  You can either build a small tower (30-40 choux buns to serve 6) or a larger tower (70-80 choux buns to serve 12). I will definitely be buying one of these and passing it off as one of my constructions but don't tell anyone...

Edible Glitter

 

This is an introductory offer on a set of 6 Coloured Edible Glitters (6 for the price of 5). The set includes Vintage Gold, Silver, Sparkle (White), Shell Pink, Parma Lilac & Palest Green. For a touch of sparkle apply this fine glittery dust to your cupcakes or treats. As this is a totally edible product, the glitter effect is very subtle and may appear more like lustre than a glitter but does satisfy Trading Standards and the FSA regulations.
