Welcome to 130 pages of sugarcraft bliss, packed with the latest trends, techniques and original tutorials designed exclusively for Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine.
Some of the top names in cake decorating and sugarcraft have collaborated with us to create this issue. Find out how to make Debbie Brown’s sweet stegosaurus centrepiece, create Peggy Porschen’s ombre buttercream covering and read our conversation with Lindy Smith, who started writing for Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine in 1998. We say a fond goodbye to Marguerite Patten, who welcomed us into her home for an interview in 2001 with freshly baked scones. We also introduce new contributors Abigail Bloom and Etty van Urk, also known as The Cake Dutchess.
Talented designer Emma Iivanainen captures the trend for graphics with her simple and effective geometric fox pattern, and Sherry Hostler’s Dancing Skeletons tutorial is a great twist on the chalkboard effects and floral plaques which are proving popular. You’ll also find photographic guides to a wide range of techniques including an airbrushed solar system, an atmospheric forest with layered tree cut-outs, contemporary sugar succulents, cake painting made easy, colourful Mexican bunting and chocolate flowerpot desserts to impress your guests.
If you’re looking for fun activities to keep kids entertained during the holidays, look no further than our Mini Bakers Summer Spectacular by Mark Tilling, with simple step-by-step instructions for creating red velvet brownie pops, beach ball piñata cookies and colourful cookie kebabs. You’ll also find some quick and easy raspberry lemonade yoghurt pops. Finally, whether you’d prefer to get in touch via Facebook, Twitter, email or post, send us your tips, pictures and queries and you could appear in the next issue.
