Debbie Brown - Day 3

Third and last day...

We made Rainbow Magic cake...little girls would be familiar with this cartoon and the 7 rainbow faries. I have passed that stage...I have a living anime and manga dictonary at home now. 
Opps! Enough crapping...and keep my FB personality away from this blog. :)

 Step 1

 Step 2

 Step 3

 Step 4

 Step 5

What?! Only three faries instead of seven? Homework, please... 

Managed to squeeze Angelina Ballerina in...Thank you Debbie for these wonderful 3 days!

Lastly, thank you Rosalind for making me WMI of the Year 2009. And for these 5 days of class as its prize. Definitely renewed my interest and enthusiasm in the cake decorating field.
I have been asked a few times on how I get to be WMI of the Year...I'll just say here that I'm lucky, lucky, lucky! But if you were to ask me personally, I'll tell you the secret. :)

Debbie Brown - Day 1

Third day, its cake sculpting with Debbie Brown, a well known cake decorator, tutor and author of many book on novelty or sculptured cakes.

Meet Debbie. 


 A cake trimmed off all crust top and bottom.

Stack into required shape and trimming.
"What you can't see with your eyes, you can feel with your hands" - a Debbie Brown quote to ensure smooth finishing.   

Place on prepared cake board and coat with buttercream. 


This is how to turn round styrofoam into an oval shape.


By now you can guess what cake it is.


 A penguin!


Pingu to be exact. 


 Book signing...that's me with Debbie and her Pingu. :)

Finishing attaching the image and finishing touches on the plaque. Like my cloud and bird? Its free hand.

Everything up on the cake.


Borders up.


Some free hand scrolls to cover empty spaces.


View from the side...more scrolls required there.
That's it!

Eddie Spence MBE - Day 1

Having the opportunity to attend the 5 days class organised by ICCA this will be a series of daily posting to share going-ons in class.

Eddie Spence MBE, the master of royal icing, explaining the making of royal icing. 

 Right down to the details of how to make a good piping bag for flooding.

First, we had to make collars, pipe outline using the technique of crossovers and point-to-point.  

Flood them. 

Eddie, an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher, trying to give as much individual attention as possible to everone...the are about 50 of us. Aren't we lucky?



This is Eddie's...and what we have to make for our cake.


This is mine. My boy has a devilish look...with one hand missing...but I so love  pressure piping now.

Below are some displays of Eddie's work...my camera does not do them justice...especially the eagle...

 



Stay tuned for Day 2 :)
