Creating A Structural Wedding Cake or Birthday Cake

cakeframe-flower-pot-cakeWe are really pleased after trying out one of our latest products now available in our cake decorating supplies shop. For many of us, it’s the answer to creating a strong structure to build amazing shaped designed cakes. Whether you are creating a unique wedding cake or an inspiring carved birthday celebration cake, our cake frame kit will help you create amazing structural cakes!

 

How do I build a strong, secure structure for my cake, without drilling, gluing or sawing items not fit for purpose, or needing a degree in structural engineering?

 

CakeFrame is a simple to use rod and joint system, made from a very strong polystyrene based plastic, which is both food grade and dishwasher safe.

 

There is a number of joints, with different length straight rods, curves  and angles to help you create the required shape for your wedding cake or celebration cake. There are rigid platforms too (round and square, available in different sizes) that will support your cakes as you create height, and the most integral part – the foundation piece – screws your structure tightly to the base board.

 

There is no gluing, drilling, cutting or sawing as you can simply slot each piece together as you build your cake. Each part fits securely into the next, and whilst it can be pulled apart for reuse, it holds firmly in place, adding strength and support to the heart of your cake.

 

When adding cake to your structure you can either, stack, fill and cover as you go, or decorate separately and add a finished cake to the structure.

 

Cake frame is an ideal way to ensure that your tiered wedding cake not only looks great but is structurally safe for everyone to admirer.

 

You can also purchase additional pieces separately from our cake decorating shop to create your cake design.

Floral Wedding Cake Designs

asian-eggless-wedding-cakesWe had a fantastic day at the National Asian Wedding Show, held at the beautiful National Motorbike Museum, Birmingham. Our new floral designed wedding cakes for 2015 were admired by many of the soon to be bride and grooms. Our delicious eggless cake samples were very popular and quickly disappeared with many people coming back and asking for more!

 

Our newly designed wedding cupcakes and favours drew much attention and seem just  as popular this year as in previous years.

 

The humble cupcake has become one of life’s simple pleasures and has become a unique alternative to the traditional wedding cake. Wedding cupcakes give us a fantastic opportunity to create beautiful personal designs to suite any wedding reception. Soft sponge topped with thick, buttery, melt in the mouth icing – makes it really hard for quests to resist their delightful tasty charm! It only feels like yesterday that the cupcake entered our lives to become the nation’s best loved treat. But little did we know, the cupcake has been making serious groundwork in the baking world since the 19th century.
Cupcakes purely came about due to convenience as they saved so much time in the kitchen, and still to this day they are a firm favourite to create due to their ease. We’re still unsure how the cupcake got his name, but there are two theories 1) the cakes were originally cooked in cups and 2) the ingredients used to make cupcakes were measured out by the cup. The earliest cupcake recipe consisted of these key ingredients; one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs, one cup of milk and one spoonful of soda.
Today, cupcakes can be found in every flavour imaginable! Love peanut butter? No problem; you can have peanut butter flavoured icing. Fancy some lemon curd? Just add  to the middle of your cupcake. However you want your cupcakes decorated, the choice really is endless and with a dollop of creativity you can create your ultimate treat.

 

Part of the cupcakes appeal is how perfectly decorated they are, visually they are always on point; piled high with butter icing and topped with fruits, sauces, chocolates or sugar icings they really are a treat for the eyes as well as the mouth and make a real eye catching statement at any wedding reception.

 

lace-veil-mats-cakeFancy a change? How about trying sugar lace icing? New to the sugarcraft world, sugar lace icing, is a key baking trend which has captured the imagination and minds of amateur and professional bakers alike. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this new way of decorating cakes, it is a very simple but effective way of decorating cakes and cupcakes. Simply mix Sugarveil or Sweet lace Icing Mix with warm water and apply to stencils or a silicone mat, before peeling off and decorating on cakes and cupcakes to create a beautiful, sophisticated and one of a kind lace design which stands out from the crowd.

 

We have a great range of new cake decorating supplies for 2015 now available at our cake decorating shop, Solihull and on line from our Sugarbliss cake decorating shop. some of these fantastic new products include a range of new cupcake cases designs, sugar flowers and sugar cupcake decorations to food mixers ideal for creating tasty butter cream icing to decorate cakes and cupcakes!
