The Cake Guru Blog
In this blog post I want to show you how to use a very old-fashioned technique to make some quick and beautiful flowers. This visual, step-by-step guide should take you through from start to finish, and give you perfect sugarpaste or flowerpaste cake decorations.
Our customers will often show us images of cakes that they have seen online and liked or perhaps they might even produce a scrapbook of cuttings or some printed photocopies of cakes.
At this point cake decorators have a choice to make – to copy or not to copy… I’m really clear on where I stand when it comes to copying someone else’s designs, I just won’t do it. And in my experience most good cake decorators won’t do it either because let’s face it if they are good at their job they should be able to come up with an original design and not just carbon copy someone else’s hard work.
There is a but though… What if the cake decorator doesn’t know they are copying?
