With Christmas just around the corner, we have a whole selection of festive and winter-themed bakes and sugarcraft creations in this issue for you to get busy with!
From a candle cake centrepiece inspired by ivy, amaryllis flowers and red berries, to some fun and festive Italian-style macaron designs.
Finding yourself a little strapped for time over the holidays? We’ve got some super simple yet effective bakes that you can whip up in no time. Emma Ivane’s Yule log only takes 10 minutes to bake and it's easy to decorate with piped buttercream flowers and pinecones. Or, you can bring a little bit of fun to your festivities with Trudy Mitchell’s super cute cakesicles. Quick to make and fun to decorate, these are perfect for place settings or even given as a homemade gift.
In addition to the seasonal showstoppers, we have a variety of sugarcraft techniques scattered throughout the issue. From texturing sugarpaste and appliqué panels, to figure modelling, moulds and embossing, to wafer and rice paper ruffles, to sugar flowers and cocoa butter painting.
There’s plenty to try out and something for everyone in this issue, so make yourself a cup of hot cocoa and get cosy with these creative cakes. Not only are they great for this time of year, but bakers of all skill levels will love these ideas for birthdays, celebrations, parties and more!
