Christmas Cake Decorating Demos

We are real looking forward to our next Christmas cake demonstration, at Bentley Heath Community Hall. We will be demonstrating to a sold out audience to the members of the local “WI`” groups. We will be working on a 10 inch round cake, showing how to use different cake decorating tools to cover a cake perfectly!

 

Afterwards we will then showing the 60 members how we create simple but effect sugar Christmas decorations. The models we will be creating using sugar paste will be a Christmas tree, a Santa, holly and berries and a Christmas teddy bear. The cake will then be raffled to raise money for the members charities.

 

We love trying out new cake decorating tools and equipment and the piece of cake decorating equipment which has caught our attention is the diamond fondant rolling pin from kitchen craft.

 

cake decorsating toolsYou can create patterned edible borders to cakes in an instant with this ‘as you roll’ acrylic rolling pin. Simply roll out your fondant as normal then when at the required thickness, roll over with this rolling pin to create a highly detailed wavy pattern to then use as borders or for decorations.

 

Cake Tip

Christmas sugar cake decorations can be made well in advance and stored in a cardboard cake box to let the moisture out.

How To Stack A Wedding Cake

A tiered wedding or celebration cake design always creates a wow factor and always looks impressive.  We are frequently asked at our Sugarbliss Cake Decorating shop, how do you stack a tiered wedding cake or a tiered celebration cake? So follow these simple steps to securely stack any shaped cake.

 

Step 1

Place a thin cake card, approximately 2 inch smaller than the next tier up, place in the middle of the bottom base cake. Gently press down to make a slight impression or mark round the edge using a scribing tool. This will show the area where the dowels can be placed.

 

Step 2

At the highest point of the cake, push a dowel into the cake and mark the dowel above the icing (approx 1mm) using a edible pen.

 

Step 3

Pull out the dowel and using it as a template mark three more dowels. Score the dowels with a sharp knife or scissors and snap.

 

Step 4

Push the four dowels into the cake evenly spaced and in the previously marked area.

 

Step 5

Place the next on top of the dowelled cake. Repeat the process for additional tiers.

 

Step 6

Once you have completely finished stacking attach ribbon around the base of each cake , securing with royal icing, or pipe around to hide the join. The tiered cake is now ready for cake decorating.
