Welcome to our festive issue!
Where has this year gone?! Can you believe that Christmas is on our doorstep already? To get you in the festive mood, we have a fabulous bumper Christmas issue packed with some brilliant features and cake projects for you to try.
On the front cover is our Silent Night Cake from Pamela McCaffrey Cakes. A gorgeous window design with sparkling snow, all brought to life with beautiful Edible Glitter from Rainbow Dust Colours.
The Christmas Tree Surprise Cake from Elise Strachan’s new book, Sweet Celebrations, is a MUST make. With coloured sponge, a hidden treats filling and easy piping for decoration, this cake is an easy one for you to try. Another tutorial that I must highlight is the Winter Woodland Cake by Marianne, from Tastefully Yours Cake Art. She uses a fabulous chiselling technique to really bring out the design in elements of her cake – you must give it a go!
Back for another year is our Christmas Countdown Competition, with over £2,800 worth of prizes to give away! Make sure you join us on Facebook every day from 1st-24th December to enter into the festivities and be in with a chance of winning some amazing cakey goodies.
