Hello Crafty Folks!
Sorry for the delay in uploading these pics of July's Cake Decorating Crafternoon- I've been sunning myself in Ibiza and catching up with friends and family in the UK, but I hear you all had a fabulous time!
Our talented cake decorator Penny had a lot of fun teaching different icing techniques to make these miniature balls of deliciousness, and of course there was a lot of munching happening along the way! The edible flowers made beautiful arrangements and Pen also showed everyone how to do semi-naked icing and how to pipe buttercream roses. Each of the ladies made 6 cakes each - 3 layer cakes and 3 cupcakes- were they as scummy as they looked ladies? I hope you all get more use out of you take-home icing kits too!
For a tutorial on the watermelon-inspired triple layer cake, see Courtney's blog post over at Pizzazzerie, and for an idea of the naked icing Penny showed, check out Amie at Whipped Cake Co. on Instagram: UNREAL!
Keep your eyes peeled for info on August's Crafternoon which is pencilled in for the evening of Tuesday 30th August- more details TBC as they fall into place!
I've been hugely inspired by all the beautifully colourful and exuberant pom-poms, tassels and embellishments that are trending in Ibiza this year, so watch this space to see what we will be making next!
