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.

How To Cover A Round Cake With Sugarpaste

Covering Round Cakes with Rolled Sugarpaste

 

STEP 1

Prepare cake by lightly covering with buttercream icing.

 

 

STEP 2

Before rolling out sugarpaste icing, knead it until it is a workable consistency. If the sugarpaste is sticky, knead in a little icing sugar. Lightly dust your smooth work surface or the Roll & Cut Mat and your rolling pin with icing sugar or corn flower to prevent sticking. Roll out the sugarpaste icing sized to your cake. To keep sugarpaste from sticking, lift and move as you roll. Add more corn flower or icing sugar if needed.

 

STEP 3

Gently lift the sugarpaste/fondant icing over your rolling pin or slip a cake circle under the sugarpaste/fondant icing to move; carefully position the sugarpaste icing on your cake.

 

 

STEP 4

Shape the sugarpaste to the sides of your cake with a Smoother. We recommend using a icing Smoother because the pressure of your hands may leave impressions on the surface of the sugarpaste. Beginning in the middle of the cake top, move the Smoother outward and down the sides to smooth and shape the sugarpaste to the cake and remove air bubbles. If an air bubble appears, insert a pin at an angle, release air and smooth the area again. Use the straight edge of the Smoother to mark the sugarpaste at the base of cake. Trim off excess fondant using a spatula or sharp knife.

 

STEP 5

Your cake is now ready to for you to decorate.

 

 

 

 

 


Covering Large Rounds with Rolled Sugarpaste

In most cases, the smaller your cake, the easier it will be to cover with rolled sugarpaste icing. However, there is an easy way to position and smooth sugarpaste/fondant on cakes that are 12 in. diameter or larger. Follow the steps below to lift sugarpaste icing onto the cake without tearing.

 

STEp 1

Cover cake lightly with buttercream icing. Roll out fondant sized to your cake.

 

 

 

STEp 2

Slide a large cake circle that has been dusted with icing sugar or cornflower under the rolled sugarpasate icing. Lift the circle and the icing and carefully position over cake. Gently shake the circle to slide the sugarpaste off the board and into position on the cake. Smooth and trim as described above.

 

We have a large range of sugarpaste icing in various sizes and colours from our Sugarbliss Cake Decorating Supplies Shop, Solihull.
