Wedding Cakes - A Design Source

The latest issue popped through the door yesterday and once again I've a cake published.  Only a small picture this time, but hey, all publicity's good publicity!

I was a little disappointed with the issue of Cakes and Sugarcraft that accompanied it; normally there are at least two ideas that inspire me, but I don't think I'll be renewing my subscription this time!

Patterned Pastes

Some of you may have seen the patterned paste letters I made for cakes for the Cheltenham and Gloucester Expo and Cake at the NEC.  I promised to do a set of tutorials showing the basic techniques and here they are:




And in case you've not yet seen the finished product...

I hope you have a go and please, feel free to share your finished pieces and the links to the tutorials.

Mini Cake Stands

How cute are these?  £1.50 each in the John Lewis Clearance and ideal for 'set dressing'.  Unfortunately, I think they've sold out online but there might be a few available in stores.

Cake Craft and Decoration

Not posted for months as I've been updating you all via Facebook.  However, my New Year's Resolution is at least one Blog entry a week.  So here's this week's:

My first article in Cake Craft and Decoration:  "Vintage Blue Wedding Cake
If you are new to cake decoration or are short of time, then this is the wedding cake for you. Made by Kathryn Kelly this simple stacked design is embellished with a cameo, a bride’s white glove and beautiful roses."

I can't tell you how excited I am!  I hope you like it as much as I like seeing it in print.
