In the April/May issue we’re focusing on simple tricks that will help take your cakes to the next level.
We’ve asked the 12 expert authors of new book Designer Cake Decorating to share top cake decorating tips from their collective years of experience and there are yet more helpful hints to be found in this issue’s exclusive new tutorials: learn how to paint celestial effects, create textured panels and add embossed patterns to isomalt tiles.
You’ll also find the first in a new series from Elena Wilkinson. In each issue she’ll be showing you how to make realistic sugar flowers from A to Z, starting with anemones, bluebells and clematis. All this plus step-by-step floral projects from Pamela McCaffrey, Rachel Hanna and Michelle Walker covering basic blossoms to fantasy flowers, and everything in between.
There are plenty of opportunities to try out your sugarcraft skills on some celebration cakes this season: sculpt a chicken and chicks for your Easter table or make mini bunny cakes with the kids over the holidays. When it comes to baking, Emma Ivane’s smooth carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is a tried-and-tested crowd pleaser and our gently spiced hot cross brownies are great for vegans and non-vegans alike.
