September is the month when college courses traditionally
start up in the UK, and many of the cake decorators
around today made their first ventures in to our art as part
of a formal course working towards a cake decorating
qualification. Whilst there are still some excellent courses
on offer, over recent years funding subsidy has dried up,
and for many this is no longer a viable option. To fill the
void more and more shops and sugarcraft schools run
courses throughout the year, and there will be one near you.
If you look at our Course Listing on page 48-49 you can
get an idea of some of the many courses available.

Many of you are also self taught, and each week I receive
many messages telling me how continues to develop
your skills, and this month’s projects will be sure to deliver
more of the same. Amongst the many contributions this
month I am delighted to welcome Helen Scott Reese from
the Netherlands to our pages with her delightful baby
accessory bag.

And when you have finished looking at the magazine, do
take a moment to have a look at our recently upgraded
website (www.cake-craft.com) where you can find so much
more information.

Sense Of Achievement
I’m new to cake decorating, more of a home baker really and a keen crafter. The main
reason I do these hobbies is because of mental illness, which I’ve suffered with from a
young age, I’m now in my forties and currently suffering with anorexia which is a living

nightmare - but to try and ‘escape’ I turn to
baking, crafting and now cake decorating.

These are two of my cakes, one was for my
nephew and the other a friend’s engagement, both were first

attempts at shaping a cake and tiering a cake.

I just want to send a little hope to anyone else who is
suffering with any type of illness, to have a go if
possible. Even if it just gives you a small and brief
feeling of relief and escape, it’s worth it.

SkyLanders Cake

I’ve always loved baking and studied food
technology at secondary school but that was
nearly 20 years ago now. I work as a store
manager at
Hobbycraft, and
being surrounded
by such wonderful
products inspired
me to start making
cakes beginning
with a few
cupcakes. My first
big project was
our wedding cake
last October. I
embarked on three
tiers of 6 inch deep
cakes, not an easy
project at all but
was delighted with
the end result.

The Tree-Rex SkyLanders cake was probably the
most challenging cake that I’ve done, I am still
learning modelling and it was not liking all the
weight of the icing on top of its legs! So much
detail on this one too with the shading to try and
make him look like a tree trunk!

Too Good to Cut?

When I was asked to make a totally bespoke cake for my 2nd
cousin’s christening this idea sprung to mind. Not knowing how
this would turn out, I was shocked at how totally realistic the
cake was. The cake was delivered to the christening which I also
attended. I’ve never received so many super comments and as of
yet I believe it has still not been cut?

This is my hobby! And I’ve been making cakes for family and
friends for just over a year and I love to try and make my cakes
look as realistic as possible! I’ve made many realistic cakes from
Sunday roasts to Macdonald meals but I think the baby one has
to be the most lifelike; its almost scary!
