This issue is dedicated to children’s cakes. We have some fabulous tutorials and a very special feature on Smash Cakes. In case you don’t know what they are, they are beautiful little cakes, given to babies on their first few birthdays… to smash up! We speak to Anna Hurley, from Blissfully Sweet Creations, who makes the most adorable little cakes, to find out more.
On the theme of smash cakes, Alice, from Karen Davies Sugarcraft, takes us through the steps of making a gorgeous teddy smash cake for you to try, featuring her darling baby nephew! Laura Loukaides Cakes is on our front cover this month, with her cute stuffed dragon toy. With clear and easy to follow steps, Laura shows you how to carve and decorate this beautiful cake, perfect for any kids’ party!
I am very excited to reveal our Hot Air Balloon Collection that we will be taking to the UK cake shows this Spring. First up, Birmingham Cake International in March 2016 – see my note below for more info on tickets, and a special half price offer for tickets to London CI in April. You may remember my ‘Egg Ladies’ (the amazing cake artists that made the Fabergé Egg
Collection), a few of these have now become my ‘Loon Ladies’ and have created a fabulous collection of hot air balloons, all with different styles and just incredible artistry. A massive thanks goes out to Renshaw, Dummies Direct and Rainbow Dust for providing supplies.
Another VERY exciting announcement is #RenshawIsland – an amazing cake installation from three amazing USA cake artists, to be displayed at SoFlo Cake & Candy Expo.
Read more on page 11 for all the details. I look forward to meeting you at Cake International, the British Sugarcraft Guild show and at the SoFlo Cake & Candy Expo! As always, please do get in touch and share your cake creations with us on Facebook and Twitter. You never know, you might get featured in our new Social Snippets at the back of the magazine.
