cup cake decorating (my first attempt)

Sunday, 19 August 2012

 to make the flowers and decorations i used sugar paste icing, i got a pack of whie icing and added a bit of food colouring to make the other colours. i have never made icing shapes of flowers before but i have been eyeing up so many pretty cakes on pinterest i wanted to give it a go
 i used normal royal icing to cover the cup cakes then the sugar paste icing for the rest

for the roses i found i brilliant video tutorial on youtube, for my first attempt i don't think they turned out to bad
heres the link

then for the bow i cut a strip and folded it to meet in the middle like a ring then flattened it in the centre then cut the bow ends and placed them behind and then cut a small strip and wrapped it around the middle, just like i would if i was making a bow with felt.

then i just winged it with the rest it was actually quite therapeutic i cant wait to try and make some more. i have got some gold edible spray paint to try out. i have been getting lots of cake things lately.
if i can do it then you can, im not an experienced cook, but my other skills helped allot with this if you like using clay or paper crafts then your already half way there.

  1. Oh wow! That is your first attempt? Girl you are a natural! Nice job!

  2. Came over from Charmer. Aimee, really now, you are the world's best at everything! These are lovely, but i will stick with the clay ones. I am still trying to find the wooden cutlery!

  3. I think these turned out wonderful. I love how you choose to display them as well. If this is your first try, I can't wait to see the second, third and so on. I am sure they will only get more fabulous!!

  4. Your first time? You look lie a pro! I have taken all sorts of cake decorating classes and it is just so much work I never do it anymore. Those carnations are the best I have seen. So pretty! You are a natural!

  5. I agree with everyone on this page. First try? AMAZING!
    I even made a quick video for you about your blog.
