Iv'e been busy Demonstrating again - this time it was cakes again.
This cake was made using a very cheap pre-made cake that I bought and then covered with icing. I then decorated the cake with hand-made roses and punched out flowers and leaves.
You can buy all sorts of designs to punch out and emboss your icing from Snowflakes to ivy leaves. I have found a new hobby now - even more crafty stash to find a home for.
My Demo at Otter Nurseries was mega busy and I sold out of lots of the punches and silicone moulds especially the Christmas designs. Empty shelves and happy customers.
Take a look at these little cakes and you can see there are silicone moulds with all sorts of themes, prams, baby feet, holly leaves, flowers and bells etc You can even multi-colour the images using different colours of icing too.
I don't recommend you use the same moulds for baking as you do for the other crafts. Purchase a different set for baking for hygiene purposes.
Every cake, tart or pie I see now I wonder how I can decorate it.....
