The RFC cake
Edited - Please read the forum rules
Hi welcome !
I did the badge in pastilliage as I wanted it nice and hard as originally I was going to stand it on top of the cake but I had a change of plan lol!
Then I flooded with royal icing, so firstly I used a stiff royal icing for the border then let it dry a bit, then flooded the inside with runny royal icing to give an even finish. Then when completely dry I painted the badge on using sugar flair super white mixed with vanilla, I'd normally use vodka but didn't have any in. It took a couple of coats to get it white. I was originally going to pipe over it with white royal icing but I liked the super white effect, hooe that helps
My latest cake, please excuse the mess in the background we've just moved house lol!
Hi, I have a quick question.
I have someone wanting a cake like this and I'm wondering how to get the blue fondant and the red and white blocks level. Meaning I dont want to cover the cake in blue and add the red and white as then the red and white will stand out. Any brilliant ideas??
Actually doesnt matter, I just found a tutuorial xx
Yay glad you found a tutorial. That is definitely one of those cakes that looks easy peasy and then has you sobbing into your apron at 3 in the morning lol
Or maybe that's just me lol
Here's my latest...
No that's me exactly haha X
Brilliant cake cottage! I love the Vegas one in particular
Can I join ladies??
I'm thinking about starting off basics, and doing just cupcakes to start off.
Any tips or advice?
Was there anything in particular you were wanting to know?
I can honestly say cupcakes aren't really my forte but just because I prefer to do big cakes but I'll help if I can
Same here, I get a bit bored doing cupcakes xx
I'm just starting out so anything that would help me?
From baking the cupcake to piping the topping, anything in particular I should make sure I do or don't do?
I love making cupcakes. I like to get as many different piping nozzles as I can get my hands on and just experiment with piping techniques.
Here's some I did in a rose design with a Wilton 2D nozzle for a customer order
And a giant cupcake...
And here's a giant minion
I am no professional at all, but would love to be one day.
I made a simple giant cupcake a few weeks ago for my daughter's cakesmash, and made a 3-tier fondant birthday cake for her party a few days ago.
The cake is a bit sloppy, but I was working on a wooden table and it seemed no matter how much flour I used, the fondant never wanted to come off. Wax tablecloth seems much better to work on..
