GEt your April 2016 Cake Masters Magazine NOW!
This cupcake issue is packed to the brim with lots of beautifully different projects for you to try. Not only do we have several cupcake designs, we also have a brilliant giant cupcake tutorial from Lori Ann Hynes, of Lori’s Sweet Cakes, and two very different mini cakes tutorials from Zoe Hopkinson, of Zoe’s Fancy Cakes, and Sawsen Ali, of Fancy Favours & Edible Art.
On the cover this month, we have Lori’s Sweet Cakes’ easy-tofollow giant cupcake tutorial, and in the bottom left, mimicafe Union’s lovely little animated pilots. The modelling skills learnt through this tutorial can be used to make so many different creations.
Reader Rebecca Edmunds, has tried Lori’s tutorial and has created this fabulous creation! Well done – brilliant cake!
We have some exquisite Art Deco designs from Truly Madly Sweetly Cupcakes – a really simple project which incorporates stencilling and the use of moulds. Nina Evans Williams, of Mon Cottage Cupcakes, showcases different techniques by showing you how to decorate her beautiful Vintage Frame Cupcakes with painting and straightforward modelling. Perfect for Spring, Yanira Anglada, from Cake Therapy, shows us how to make the cutest little lamb in her modelling topper tutorial. Finally, Sheryl Bito, from BunslnTheOven Cupcakery, has created a brilliant TeaCupCake tutorial that combines a teapot with a tea cup to decorate a cupcake! – it’s totally different to anything we have seen and easy to recreate at home with her step-by-step guide. There really is a tutorial for every occasion, to help you with every technique in this issue!
We have an amazing review of London’s first dessert restaurant at the Cafe Royal. Having been lucky enough to visit the best establishments in London, in comparison, this is an extraordinary dessert experience that comes highly recommended by Cake Masters Magazine!
It’s competition time! We are really excited about our new competition in association with Rainbow Dust Colours. We are looking for the best colourful cakes and have already shared many of your brilliant cakes in our dedicated Facebook album – make sure you enter yours soon. Plus this month, we have a Spot the Difference in the Elevenses feature with a fabulous prize of 15 natural food flavourings from Foodie Flavours!
Did you see our Hot Air Balloon Collection? Fear not, we will be displaying them again at Cake International, London in Alexandra Palace this April – see the reader offer below! A massive thanks goes out to Renshaw, Dummies Direct and Rainbow Dust for providing the supplies for our cake artists.
Last, but by no means least, we asked our readers to create a giant cupcake that was OUT OF THE BOX – something different to your typical giant cupcake with buttercream swirls. What they have created is really amazing; each cake decorator has come up with something totally different, so we’re very pleased to share some with you!
I hope you enjoy the issue!
