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.

Crystal Wedding Cake Designs 2014

We have been very busy preparing for the many wedding exhibitions where we will be showing our new wedding cake collections. The first of these amazing wedding exhibitions is being held at the delightful Motorcycle Museum on the 2nd February 2014. At the show we will be exhibiting our new wedding cake collection for 2014-2015 and in particularly our new crystal wedding cake designs. We have been hard at work creating the crystal lite stands and our wedding cake designs which will truly adorn our stunning crystal wedding cake stands.

 

We are often asked by our fellow cake decorators in our Sugarbliss Cake Decorating Shop, Knowle, Solihull, about sugar paste/fondant silicone moulds. There is such a wide range of quality made silicone fondant moulds to choose from and a large range of different designs from sugar flowers, buttons, butterflies to ropes, pearls, baby to name just a few. Our newly arrived cake decorating silicone moulds from kitchen craft are an excellent addition to our existing range of silicone moulds. Silicone moulds are easy to use so Look no further for the quickest and simplest way to make stunning decorations on cakes and cupcakes.

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.

fmm-ice-press

 

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.

coloured-cupcake-boxes

 

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.

 

Our new wedding cake designs are now complete for 2014 and are very excited to be launching our new wedding cake collection at the renowned Asian Wedding Show Europe’s largest Asian Wedding Show on 2nd February 2014 at the incredible National Motorcycle Museum, West Midlands.
