12″ Cake Leveller by PME

12″ Cake Leveller by PME

 

 

IScreen Shot 2016-03-16 at 16.19.56t’s probably fair to say that we have all experienced uneven layers of cake when somehow the knife doesn’t quite cut the cake as level as we thought it should.

 

Following intensive research, a special intertwined wire that works in a similar way to a serrated knife was selected, creating a leveller that does a great job and is easy to use. By using the 12″ Cake leveller you will be able to complete a perfectly level cut cake.

 

Ideal for evenly layering out your wedding cakes and birthday cakes.

 

We also sell the 18″ Cake leveller as well as the 12″ Cake Leveller. Both are available from our cake decorating shop, Solihull, West midlands or why not simply order from our online cake decorating shop.

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.

Cake Decorating Supplies-Sugarpaste

Last week we had the opportunity to try out our new range of sugarpastes from culpitt and Squires, which are now available in our Sugarbliss Cake Decorating Shop, Knowle, Solihull.

 

During our last wedding cake class and our beginners cake decorating course, our Sugarbliss cake decorating students were persuaded to try out our new sugarpastes. We all agreed both of the pastes were excellent both in texture and ease of use.

 

We particularly liked the bridal white and vintage ivory by Squires as the colours are perfect for any wedding cake. There is always an element of personal preference with any sugar paste but both these pastes are available in a range of sizes from 250g to 5kg and a comprehensive colour range. They are smooth and very easy to use for decorating your cakes, cupcakes and cookies.
