Cake Mixes-Sugarbliss Cake Supplies & Craft Company

This week has been busy with an assortment of exciting new products arriving, so keep an eye out for them in our Cake Craft Supplies Shop!   We have just added a fantastic selection of Cake Mixes to our cake ingredients range, and anybody thinking of baking cakes or cup cakes for the jubilee or any celebration will appreciate how easy and delicious our cake mixes are.

Our sweet range of cake mixes include-Vanilla, Death by Chocolate and NEW Red Velvet, Carrot, Egg Free Vanilla and Gluten Free Vanilla!

Although at Sugarbliss Cake & Craft Company we bake our own cake recipes, not everyone has the time or inclination!  After many customer requests, we now offer easy to use cake mixes for those who enjoy home baking but need the reassurance of consistent results every time. You have the flexibility to bake whatever shapes and sizes of sponge you need – big cakes, little cakes, novelty shapes and cupcakes!

The new vanilla or death by chocolate sponge cake mixes, packed in 3kg boxes, are extremely versatile and tolerant to a wide range of baking conditions.  The mixes will produce a close textured moist cake, firm and easy to handle, which should keep well for at least 2 weeks.  The results will not be identical to our own baked bases, as these are baked from scratch ingredients and cannot be recreated exactly in a cake mix,  However, cakes baked by using these mixes will be just as suitable for decorating and tasty. You also have the advantage of being able to add extra ingredients and flavours – fruit, chocolate chips, lemon flavouring?

A three kilogram box will be plenty to make three large 10″ square cakes, or six 8″ round cakes.  You can also get between 130 and 200 cupcakes from one box, depending on the size of your cupcakes!

A full instruction leaflet showing quantities of the vanila or chocolate cake mix needed for different sizes and shapes of cake is enclosed in the packaging.

We also have Red Velvet, Carrot, and Egg Free sponge cake mixes, all available in 1.5kg bags.

With a subtle chocolate flavour, moist texture and striking colour, Red Velvet is the lastest cake craze from America to hit the UK. The cake are absolutely gorgeous, baked as cupcakes with a vanilla frosting.

A 1.5kg pack of Red Velvet Cake Mix is plenty for three 8″ round cakes, or 60-90 cupcakes depending on size.  Instructions are included for an 8″ round cake.

 

 

Wedding Cake Decorations-Feathers

I have just finished completing a wedding cake design for later on this year and I am really excited with this cake design, as I will be using  some colourful feathers with diamantes to finish the wedding cake decorations.  In our sugar craft shop we have a lovely range of feathers in some fantastic colours. Some of the feathers have diamantes included which look wonderful sparkling under the lights and complement the other diamante decorations perfectly.This wedding cake is truely going to be a real eye catcher!

I will post some pictures when the wedding cake has been completed.

 

 

Sugar Sheet

Sugar Sheets!-These sugar paste sheets are printed with edible food colours and measure 300mm x 300mm. Metal cutters can be used to cut shapes from the flexible sugar sheets, giving you an exciting new way to decorate cupcakes, cookies and cakes.

I have just finished a fabulous birthday cake and some cupcakes using the new sugar sheets that have recently arrived in our cake craft shop.  There are several designs to choose from,  but the one i have just used is the black rose design on a white background. The black rose pattern sugar sheet also has matching cupcake wrappers which looked absolutely stunning displayed on our 3 tier cupcake stand.

Sugar sheets are a great idea and really easy to use. The sugar sheets almost create an instant cake decoration!  You can, as i just have, use  the sheets in strips around a cake, or to cut out shapes using scissors, cutters or a modeling knife. All you have to do to use the sugar sheets is to peel off the backing sheet and fix your shapes onto the cake with edible glue. They really are a great alternative way to decorate a cake.

British Sugarcraft Guild Exhibition 2012

Although we are very busy this weekend in our sugar craft shop and with cake orders, we are going to find as much time as possible to spend at the 7th British Sugarcraft Guild Show at Telford Exhibition Centre. It’s so exciting to be able to visit and we are really looking forward to gaining inspiration from the various stands and the competition arena.

The Exhibition is on all weekend (19th & 20th May)-Hope to see some of you there.

How Much Ribbon To Go Round A Cake/Board?

At our Sugarbliss Cake Craft & Cake Decorating Shop we have a beautiful range of decorative cake ribbons, frills and trims which will add the finishing touch to your perfect special occasion cake. Whether it’s for a birthday, christening, wedding or Christmas, in our craft shop we are sure you will be able to find the ideal ribbon for your cake.

One of the most common questions we are asked here at Sugarbliss Cake Craft is – How much ribbon do I need to go around my cake or cake board?

To answer this question we have made a simple guidance table which we really hope will help.

Once you have chosen your ribbon and have cut to the correct size, to ensure the ribbon will be completely level when attaching to the board or cake edge, place onto a smooth level surface and attach the ribbon to the board edge using a glue stick, or to the cake edge by dabbing a small amount of piped icing to the ribbon at the back of the cake.
