Welcome to the February issue of Cake Masters Magazine.
It is that time of the year when we are gearing up for Valentine’s! We have some fantastic tutorials in this issue, starting with our front cover cake, by Bobie Luisa Misa-Toyer from BMTCakeDesigns by Bobie. Bobie shows us how to get the perfect sunset and builds up a beautiful decorative tree with blossoms. Bobie shows how easy it is to make this striking cake which can be adapted for other colours too. Also in this issue are the cutest Valentine’s themed cupcakes! Victoria, from Victorious Cupcakes, takes us through how to create six fabulous designs. For something a little more challenging, we have a 3D standing heart cake! Yes – sounds scary, but easy when you know how to set up the structure first. Ana, from Cupcake&Dreams Portugal, shows us how to tackle the structure and shares tips on how to cover and create lovebirds perfectly! Last up is a beautiful art deco romance by Laura from Cakey Bakes Cakes. Laura shows us how to make a fabulous Gatsby style art deco cake board with blacks and golds, and then takes us through a handpainted tutorial with bas relief detailing on her design. Why not share your creations with me on Facebook – I would love to seem them!
Also in the magazine this month is an interview with South African cake decorator Dot Klerk, from Eat Cake Party. Dot tends to specialise in brilliant 3D cakes with the wow factor. We take a step into her world of cake and find out more! We also have a special love stories feature where we asked a few cake decorators to take a typical love story tag line, like “Opposites Attract”, “Forbidden Love” and even “Old Flame”, and create a cake based on it.
This issue also includes a fabulous afternoon tea article all the way from South Africa. We also welcome Lindy Smith as our expert in the hot seat, answering your questions in our new Elevenses feature with book and tutorial reviews, bake clubs and your chance to win £50 of Karen Davies moulds!
