Beginners Sugar Craft – Week 1

I started a Beginners Sugar Craft Course in Cakebox in Dun Laoghaire. The course is six weeks long. Over the duration of the course I’ll learn the correct method to almond paste and sugar paste a cake, how to frill a cake and pipe in royal icing. I’ll also learn how to make christening decorations, booties, cradles, sugar babies, sugar roses, rose leaves and filler flowers!

On my first day last week we covered our dummy cakes with Covapaste white icing, using alcohol to bond the icing to the dummy cake. Then we used our crimpers to crimp a pattern around the edge of the cake and the board.

Our instructor gave loads of tips and advice over the course of the evening, a lot of the stuff she covered off were questions I’d always had! So it was useful!

Every week we’re going to build on what we’ve done to our dummy cake so prepare to become overly familiar with my cake!
