Welcome to the September issue of Cake Masters Magazine.
Dedicated to all things fashion, this month we have some amazing tutorials, techniques and masterclasses to share with you! From Cake Lace, to Sugar Stilettos, and to an amazing Makeup Box Cake, there are many different things for you to try in this issue. Firstly, I am very excited to give our UK based readers FREE CAKE LACE! Clare Bowman herself has created a fantastic tutorial showing you how to use the lace to create a beautiful show-stopping tiered cake, as well as some pretty vintage style cupcakes.
Decorating with royal icing is a traditional technique that has developed through the ages and can be used for some fabulous modern designs. To get you started, we have a royal icing masterclass from Renshaw. From the basics of making a piping bag and a guide to nozzles, to applying designs, this masterclass shows you how to pipe flowers and create a beautiful piped design. Keeping on the theme of royal icing, we have a great tutorial for Perfume Bottle Iced Cookies – demonstrating how to achieve modern elegance with this medium. We also share with you the work of a group of artists who have created fantastic royal iced cakes inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Our featured interview this month is with Marina Sousa, from Just Cake. Marina talks to us about her cake career and her highlights – one of which was being invited on The Oprah Winfrey Show! We also have a gorgeous collaboration of fashion cakes through the decades, organised by Jacki Fanto, from Blissfully Sweet.
Back for a 2015 collection, William Tan, from Ipoh Bakery has created Runway Barbie 2.0. We discovered William last year when he broke the internet with his new-style Barbie doll cakes. William created a beautiful array of fashion doll cakes for the June 2014 issue and has wowed us again with fabulous new designs. You must check this feature out! Keeping with the fashion theme, we even had afternoon tea in style at the Hyatt Regency in London with a Sex and the City Par-Tea! Everything was divine and beautifully crafted, you must check it out!
A new type of competition can be found in the Elevenses section, where we have song title cupcakes! Each cupcake represents a song and to make it a little more interesting, each song has a colour in the title. Email in your answers to win a fabulous prize from Cake Structure: a Stiletto Shoe Kit and a Baby Shoes kit!
I hope you enjoy this issue, remember to share your creations with us on Facebook!
