Baking for her mother, boyfriend and friends on a regular basis. She only accepts sweet treats from her guests she interviews in her studio. She dreams of all things sweet and delicious. She is a fan of The Great British Bake Off. She is doing her bit for Children in Need which aires tonight on BBC1 7pm.
Sugarpaste or Rolled Fondant is a soft paste used for covering a cake or making simple flowers/models. It is ready to roll after kneading well, and can be bought in various different sizes and colours. Chocolate and chocolate flavoured are also available depending on the types of cake you are decorating.
How do you cover a cake with fondant that's perfectly smooth, without wrinkles or air bubbles? The flexibility of fondant is your secret weapon. Just follow our instructions for the right ways to knead, roll out and lift the fondant, and you'll find that covering a cake is easy.
Colour is as basic to your cake decorating as the icing and the cake. Choosing appropriate colours for your cake will help you capture just the mood you want for the occasion. When planning your cake, think about colour. Gather inspiration from the theme of your celebration. The icing colors you choose will carry that theme and personalise your decorating. Look around, notice everyday objects – from a garden in bloom, to the clothes people wear. Which colours appeal to you? Use your favorite colours in your decorating. Don't be afraid to try something different. Have fun using rich, bright colours or different colour combinations. Begin by making a monochromatic cake, decorated all in white or in a single, pale colour. Try using colour decorations in contrast to an all-white cake background. Decorate using all pastels or all primary colours. Experimenting with colour will help you decide which colours work to make your cake designs spectacular.
Half term is fast approaching, the kids will at home, they will either be getting bored or pestering their parents. Kids need to be entertained, so why not keep them occupied by having a baking session at home. Teach them how to make biscuits: who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked biscuits; the aroma gets you in the mood every time, and it will be a nice treat for them. At least this way you don’t need to worry about what your children are eating, when you bake your own goodies, you know exactly what goes into it, rather than it being shop bought.
