Welcome to 2017!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a brand new year filled with cake creations!
The January issue is dedicated to One Tier Wonders and we have a range of different fabulous projects for you to get your teeth into.
Our beautiful front cover cake is by Sandy Lawrenson of Sweet ‘n Sassy Fine Cakes, with a ballerina theme.
Learn how to sketch detail using an edible food pen and create cute ballet shoes. We have a special collection of 2D toppers, showing you how to transform simple one tier cakes. Check out the Pretty Little Pony topper by Joonie Tan of 180 Degrees Celsius, which ties in to the trending love for unicorn cakes at the moment.
We are so pleased to feature a great new product – Safety Seal by Ingenious Edibles. It is used in the Golden Blush tutorial by Naomi Lee of The Cake Botanist. Safety Seal is a new innovative product which allows you to seal flower wires and all non-edible items and put them directly into cake!
Check out the winner and runners up from the DECOgel competition in association with Icing Images, there are some fabulous show stoppers; it’s amazing what you can achieve with this versatile product!
In our Elevenses section, Elise Strachan takes our hot seat in Ask the Expert and we review the NEW Cupcake Bouquet kit by Doric Cake Crafts. Make sure you unscramble our cake anagrams for a chance to win a Year’s Subscription to The Cake Craft World Club, which includes all access to their video tutorials.
We really do love to feature as many cakers from around the world as possible, if you would like to get in touch, email me – I love hearing from you!

Best wishes for the New Year!
