I have done a few more picture tutorial’s to show my method’s hope they help :) First up how is the stamping part , normally i would do this straight onto the cake. You could also use this method cut out and then paint and add to cake for a more 3d look, roll out fondant pull some cling film taut over it, place stamp on and firmly press down so you get a good imprint, make sure you go over the whole stamp. Carefully remove the stamp and then clingfilm and waaaahlaaaa you are ready to paint. I started...Read more http://cakesdecor.com/entries/1504-stamping-painting

When you see the same ol' "happy birthday" butchered day after day, you learn to cherish the cakes that break the mold and say something truly unique. Whoah, thought that said something a little off-color for a sec!
(Who else saw "Jerk?")   Anyway, I've been collecting some of the better examples for ages now, and as I started scrolling through them today I realized they told a kind of story. It helps if you imagine them as a conversation between two people. And also if you're a little drunk.

Hear thee, hear thee! I have alarming news about the world: it is overrun with locally produced, artisan desserts. It's a frightening time to be alive, when where bearing a Twinkie or Snowball in your hand is viewed almost as disdainfully as smoking a cigarette in front of an elementary school.   Why is it so terrible to take deep pleasure in sub-standard, commerically produced desserts? After all, life is short, and we have the right to derive pleasure both from high quality, lovingly baked desserts, as well as the ones that don't have any benefit but our gratification. What...Read more http://www.cakespy.com/blog/2014/7/29/the-ten-commandments-of-guilty-pleasure-desserts.html

The following cakes were made by professionals, and paid for with actual money.
Do not adjust your screen.   Vicky W. wanted this cake, only in pink and white. Hm. I wonder how it turned out?   Oh, that's right! This is Cake Wrecks. BAM!   This next cake is not the wreck. It's actually what Mary J's half sister's other sister* wanted for her wedding.
(*cousin's nephew's roommate...) Which Mary J's half sister's other sister apparently bought at a donut shop. Okay, time for some hard truths here. Are you ready? Here goes: If your baker makes most of...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/7/28/the-bad-the-bad-and-the-badder.html

These may not be your grandmother's cakes... but I bet she'd love them. (By Papillon Cakes , website currently disabled) Rickrack and strawberries? Yes, please!   If we learned anything from Grandma's house, it's that you can never have too many floral patterns. (By Amelie's House ) Especially when they're hand-painted.   No one does "dainty" like our grandmothers did. Mine recently gave me a bunch of her old jewelry, and there are necklace pendants in there smaller than my pinky nail. I'm talking TINY. Kind of like the little accent flowers on this bottom tier: (By Cakes by Suzanne ...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/7/27/sunday-sweets-grandmas-kitchen-counter.html

This is an short tutorial to help you transfer edible images on little pieces of fondant. The girl wanted all Disney princesses on her castle cake, so this was great solution. First, cover your cake in fondant. We chose pink colour. Add more tiers if you need it, I’ve put two tiers.
Roll pink fondant and cut the walls for the castle. Glue them around the cake. Prepare fondant in white, different shades of pink and purple, tools. Cut the images of princesses (it was printed on A4 format). Cut the windows in white fondant. Use the shape you like,...Read more http://cakesdecor.com/entries/1501-disney-princesses-castle-edible-image-transfer-tutorial

A few of my favorite submissions this week:   Yeah! Go SPORTS!   Of course it's easy to focus on the mistakes, so let's take a second to appreciate that somewhere there's a professional baker who actually did this... on purpose. ("I call it, 'Barbie's Dream Petri Dish.'")   Could be worse, though. This one makes me want to launch a CSI investigation: ("Looks like Merle... [SUNGLASSES].... got smoked." ) And yes, I do realize "CSI investigation" is redundant.   SPEAKING of which... Ow. My brain .   Because nothing delights a girl on her birthday quite like chopping off...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/7/25/friday-favs-72514.html

Hi all, By request :) I took photos of every step so I hope this should be clear and detailed enough for beginners like myself to follow (I’ve discovered it’s rather hard to balance a camera in one hand lol).

I know it can be scary asking a bakery to do something custom, like, say, a school or brand's logo.
But DON'T PANIC; I'm here to walk you through it. First, print out a nice, clear image to bring in as a reference:   With something as simple as this Chanel logo, you can be sure there is simply NO WAY... ...that the results won't be hysterical.   When ordering a Saints logo...   ...it helps to have the patience of one.   Oh, and when you give the baker your reference image, be sure to mention how closely you...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/7/24/logo-low-blows.html
