Cake Lace

Cake Lace

Cupcakes and lace go together perfectly. It used to be that you had to hand pipe the lace with royal icing, a time consuming job which would require the patience of a saint. Then came along sugarveil, but to be honest it still took too long and I rarely used it. But then, a revelation appears, Cake Lace. Cake Lace is easy to use and effective. It isn’t as fine as sugarveil but it is certainly a great alternative when you don’t have all day to sit and play with cakes. Cake Lace was created by Claire Bowman, to see more examples or find out where to buy it visit her Facebook...

Happy Valentine’s Day!   By Katy...

So my Dad bless him got one for his birthday, probably the most girly cake he has ever had. But he did what all good Dad’s do and loved it anyway. Anything he can eat and he is happy.

Superhero cupcakes

  Believe it or not these were not for a child but a fully grown adult. You are never too old for superheroes. All of the logos are made from florist paste, hand cut and coloured and allowed to dry in stages. My favourite is the POW...
