Chocolate Cigarellos

A very popular wedding cake and celebration cake we are regularly asked for, is our chocolate cigarellos cake design. These simple but effect cake designs make a eye catching wedding cake whether square or round, single tier or multi-tier.


We stock all the flavours Dark, Milk, White and Duo in our Sugarbliss Cake Decorating Shop for you to create your very own chocolate cigarello celebration or wedding cake. A frequently asked question regarding these cakes designs is How Many Chocolate Cigarellos Do I Need?


The table below gives a rough guide to the number of cigarellos you will need for various sizes of round and square cakes.  The exact number used will depend on your spacing.  Remember, it is always best to allow a few extra in case of breakages!


This guide is based on using 3 cigarellos per inch – this is closely spaced, almost touching.  For unusual shapes not shown on the chart, you can use a piece of string or ribbon to measure the distance round your cake, then use the 3 per inch rule to estimate quantities.


Our Belgian Chocolate Cigarellos are the particularly fine, high quality ones made by Unifine, not the very fragile ‘budget’ versions which are also now on the market.  Easy to use, these ready made cigarellos mean that you can fairly quickly produce a stunning chocolate centrepiece.


The cigarellos are approximately 10cm (4 inches) high, and one 500g box contain approx 105 cigarellos.  Use the table below to work out how many you will need, then you can calculate how many boxes to order!  Allow some extra in case of breakages.

New Cake Decorating Products 2014

We briefly mentioned previously about the new FMM press ice cake decorating tools. After recently having the opportunity to use these three different presses on some of our new wedding cakes designs and we thought it was well worth while mentioning these simple but effect cake decorating tools again.



Press-Ice tools are a brand new range of icing impression marker tools from FMM that allow you to mark a decorative pattern quickly and accurately.  They are ideal for polka dot and ‘Tiffany’ pearl designs, delicately piped ribbon and borders, appliquéd shapes and patterns, vintage floral prints and for cross stitch grids.  Pipe tiny icing pearls over each indentation or use as markers for more intricate designs.



We also have a new range of coloured cupcake boxes, available in baby blue, baby pink, red, black, bright pink and yellow in our Sugarbliss Cake Decorating Shop.


Another new cake decorating product that we have had great fun using, is the silicone Plastique by Myom.


Silicone Plastique is a food moulding putty that lets you make your own food moulds of any product.


It has a clay like consistency allowing for a 10 minute working consistency and an hour long drying time.


This product will allow you to make chocolate or an Isomalt mould of your favourite household objects, why not make some chocolate pennies a fun kids party bag idea.

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.

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.

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