Welcome to the April issue of Cake Masters Magazine.
Our theme for this issue is children’s celebration cakes, and what a cute issue it is!
In this issue, we have four tutorials. Firstly, an adorable toy box cake by Tracey, from The Little Cherry Cake Company, that takes you through all the steps from stacking, carving, ganching and detailing to modelling the sugar toys. All our tutorials give you easy to follow, step by step photo instructions, to help you whatever skill level you are. If you do give this toy box a go, share it with us on Facebook, we would love to see what kind of toys hang out of your box! Next, we have a very beautiful, vintage style carousel by Kathryn, from Candytuft Cakes. Kathryn shows us how easy it is to make and structure the carousel, and how to create beautifully effective decorations, using moulds and cutters, for key detailing on the cake. It might look like a challenge, but when you break it down, it’s totally manageable! We also have a fabulous robot cake from Cheryl at Particular Cakes, and last but by no means least, Barbara from Sweet Janis gives us the best of both worlds and shows us how to make and decorate a split tiered cake. This design basis can be used for pretty much any combination, and we love how Barbara takes us through each step in detail, sharing her pirate and ballerina themed decorations too!
We have a very special article on Baking Therapy in this month’s issue, where readers and organisations have shared personal stories with us to demonstrate the psychological and physical benefits of baking. New for Cake Masters Magazine, we share highlights of US based cake show “That Takes The Cake” – it’s great to be showcasing some wonderful artistry from across the pond. With two fantastic cake spotlights this month, we explore the inspiration behind Akiko White’s wonderful children’s story cake-illustration and Nisha Fernando’s fabulous cake to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music.
Make sure you check out our Elevenses section, as we have Liz Marek in the expert hot seat answering your questions. We also have some fabulous prizes to give away, from a bundle of Patchwork Cutters to ALL the books and tutorials in our reviews feature!
