Sprinkle Some Love Over Your Cakes
We launched a brand new range of Mini Pearls and Sugars and Sugar Strands
at this year's Baker's Fair and they were very well received, in fact
everyone loved them. Their uses are endless and we have had such fun
thinking up and trying many different ways of putting the 'sprinkle'
back into your life! Below are just some ideas.
up your buttercream by sprinkling our Mini Pearls on top. The secret to
an even sprinkle is to drop the Mini Pearls from about 6" high whilst
slowly turning the cupcake below. Do this while the buttercream is soft
otherwise they may not stick when it sets.
For a quick and effective design why not cover your cupcake or celebration cake with a Sugarpaste and before it sets hard, cut out a shape with a Cutter, pull the cut out shape away from the cake and fill the hole with sprinkles. It looks great and is so easy to do.
you are making delicious muffins you may not want elaborate decoration
to take away from the flavour so why not just sprinkle some Sugar Strands or Mini Pearls onto some freshly made fondant icing for a more subdued look. These muffins look great in our Tulip Muffin Wraps.
For a fun and colourful celebration cake, why not cover the middle of our Wafer Daisies with Edible Glue and sprinkle them with Mini Pearls. To create the gorgeous flower topper just take some Coloured Metallic Wires and thread the Wafer Leaves and Wafer Flowers onto them and then insert the wire stems into a Small Flower Pick that has been pressed into the top of the cake.
you are having a vintage tea party why not bake a traditional Victoria
sponge. Bring the cake right up to date by colouring the buttercream
pink and piping some scrolls around the top edge of the cake using one
of the Cupcake Piping Tubes. Finish the cake off with the Vintage Pink Icing Rose Bouquet and a generous sprinkling of Coloured Sugar, so vintage!
If you are on a tight budget the most cost effective way to decorate your cupcakes is to play with Colours. By choosing the right buttercream and Sprinkles
you can create some really eye catching combinations that won't need
any other decoration. White is great for anything wedding, christening,
communion and Christmas, although white on blue is very pretty for
Christmas too. Orange and black for Halloween, yellow and black for
bumble bees, red and black for ladybirds...the list is endless! Pinks,
lilacs and greens together give a very vintage feel as well so have some
fun and experiment for yourself.
Coloured Sugar also looks great when sprinkled onto Sugarpaste.
Dampen the Sugarpaste with a small amount of water first and then
sprinkle the Coloured Sugar over the top. I really like the idea of this
pretty Deep Pink Sugar over the top of the Black Sugarpaste.
The same method can be used to coat Sugarpaste with Mini Pearls too.
Maybe the most 'pop'ular use for our Sprinkles is coating your Cake Pops
in them! This is so easy to do and looks fantastic. See our
Downloadable Information Sheet on how to make and decorate cake pops.
Our Sugars, Sugar Strands and Mini Pearls
