Is it October already? Where has the year gone! This issue is packed full of tutorials, recipes and tonnes of cake inspiration.
Firstly, I must tell you about a very special interview by Christine Jensen, from Peboryon – a once in a lifetime experience where she travels around London and then to the States interviewing cake idols and questioning them about “making it”. Each cake artist she speaks to gives one key piece of advice which will help anyone with a business, or wanting to set up a business. Her journey goes from Peggy Porschen’s parlour in Belgravia, to the TV studios to see Duff Goldman in the States!
A popular and regular feature in this magazine is the interviews with a selection of Cake International winners. We are very much looking forward to Cake International next month and of course, the Cake Masters Magazine Awards! This feature showcases the work from the London CI competition and includes insightful mini interviews with the creator of each piece.
We have the cutest woodland modelling tutorial in this issue of the magazine and sticking with the theme of Autumn, a beautiful tree textured wedding cake. Our front cover star, Benny from City Cakes, also shows us how to make this amazing Art Deco masterpiece in an easy to follow step-by-step tutorial.
This issues also boasts coverage of an amazing collection of cake collaborations, from sugar shoes to Harry Potter to something more dark and twisted! We have only showcased a selection of pieces from these collaborations, so be sure to check them out online.
As usual, we have delicious recipes, book and tutorial reviews, tips and tricks, plus, this month sharing his baking expertise is James Martin! Check out the competition in the Elevenses section to win a fabulous prize of every single colour of Renshaw’s Ready to Roll Fondant Icing!
Enjoy the issue, best wishes
