Spring has sprung
and so have lots of new ideas here at Cake Craft World. The whole place
is buzzing with excitement, but sadly not about the Ideal Home Show cake
competition. There is always next year but in our eyes we are winners
because we were so thrilled by the amount of fantastic comments about
our cake on our Facebook
page. Thank you to all who commented and we will be trying again next
year for the coveted title. If you didn't manage to see the cake at the
Ideal Home Show, we will be taking it on tour with us this summer to Cake International at Excel, London and also The Cake & Bake Show at Earls Court later in the year.
As we are
celebrating two huge events this summer in our wonderful City, the
warehouse is looking very red, white and blue with all the patriotic decorations
flying off the shelves. There is limited stock on everything as so many
of you are deciding to bake your way through the Jubilee weekend so get
your orders in now. I have put my thinking cap on for you this month to
try and come up with some clever ideas to decorate your cakes and
fancies for street parties and any Olympic parties that you may be
having at home during the summer.
A Carriage fit for a Queen
This cake was made using the Princess Carriage Pan.
It is an easy tin to use as once you have covered your cake with
sugarpaste, you put the pan back over the cake and press down gently,
indenting all the details on to the sugarpaste. I have covered this
carriage with Teddy Bear Brown Regal Ice and sprayed it with Gold Edible Lustre Spray
to create the striking gold carriage effect. The window and wheel
detail was added afterwards using Regal Ice and the whole carriage then
embellished with Mixed Silver Dragees. Have you noticed the red glitter board? This was made by covering a board with Sattina True Red Sugarpaste, spraying with Edible Glaze Spray and then liberally sprinkling non toxic Red Glitter over the top, finishing off with another coating of Edible Glaze Spray to seal.
|If you decide to invest in the Princess Carriage Pan, you could always adapt it to become the 'tea for two' pan as I have below!|
Ab Fab Jubilee Cake Tops
a simple cake, cupcakes or even a platter of food into a royal
extravaganza! These are fantastic for the upcoming Diamond Jubilee
celebrations. Simply push the Jubilee Pop Top Cake Decorations directly
into your cake. The 12 images include Buckingham Palace, The Queen,
Prince Philip, corgis & carriage, amongst other things. Look how
happy the Queen looks in this one! These cupcakes are displayed on
the Victoria Sponge Cake Platter.
daughter doesn't really like bread so we have created 'Fairy Bread'
which is bread spread with butter and sprinkled generously with nonpareils. Finally cut out your favourite shapes, we have used our Crown Cookie Cutter and Metal Teapot Cutter for this Fairy Bread.
you have been asleep for the last couple of months you will be aware
that we are celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in June! Here
is a patriotic cake for you to present at your party and it really
is quite simple to make. You can either roll out long sausages of
Regal Ice or use the Sugarcraft Gun to create perfectly formed rope. Then cut our Small Icing Union Jack Sugarettes into triangles to make bunting and glue along the rope with Edible Glue. At the top of each rope join, make pretty flower rosettes using the Extra Large Plastic Flower Blossom Plunger Cutter in Atlantic Blue Regal Ice, the Medium Plastic Flower Blossom Plunger Cutter in White Regal Ice and finish the centres with Red Sugar Pearls. I have edged this cake with our lovely Patriotic Stripe Ribbon (9mm depth) and topped it with a handmade flower which I will explain in more detail below.
Cake Craft World's Jubilee Tudor Rose
I have designed this Tudor Rose to celebrate the Queen's 60 years on the throne. It is made using different sizes of the FMM 5 Petal Rose Cutter. The sizes used here are 35mm, 50mm and 75mm. For a superfine and delicate look, use Florist Paste for your Tudor Rose. I used Bluebell, White and Poinsettia. To achieve the beautiful little flower centres I used the amazing Daisy Centre Stamps.
you invest in these cutters, your imagination can start creating some
beautiful colour combinations. I have kept it simple and stylish
below by spraying my Pale Blue Florist Paste made roses with Pearl Edible Lustre Spray.
In keeping with the Royal theme, here I have created a princess cake using our Classic Wonder Mould. This stunning skirt was created using the Broderie Anglaise Straight Frill Cutter. I mixed Florist Paste and Sugarpaste together to create a softer paste but one that would still keep it's frill when drying. I used a frilling tool from the Set of Frilling Tools but you could use a cocktail stick. You could model your own body and head but the Classic Wonder Mould comes with a doll pick and we also sell them separately. We dressed her in a White Regal Ice top and studded it with Silver Dragees. Again, she was placed on a glittered board for extra wow and finished off with a spectacular Crown Ring in her hair.
We have many more brilliant products and ideas for the London summer celebrations below.
