Sugar Roses

Just a quick update to share what I did last night on my course, which is sugar roses.

These roses are made of ready to roll fondant, a small amount of vegetable shortening (brands such as Trex and Cookeen) and a tiny dusting of gum tragacanth.

I will be adding a step by step shortly so you can have a go, but I will be using 'tylo' instead of the gum tragacanth, which I am just awaiting delivery of!

Will update soon.

Well, here goes, my first blog post. This is going to take some getting used to!

I'm starting my Sugarcraft course tonight, which I'm looking forward to. It's a weekly course over the next 12 weeks, so I'm really hoping to learn some new skills, which I can showcase on here with a few hints and tips for any other cakers out there. I am aiming to update at least once a week during my course, but bear with me if I don't do it straight away!

Just a little background info about me. I'm a 20 something new baker, making the occasional large cake for family/friends which started with making my mum a cake for her birthday last July. I enjoy making biscuits and cupcakes too, and the cupcakes normally have an orange flavour buttercream icing (I really must try some new recipes though!) I will go through my photos and add some images of the cakes/biscuits etc I have made. I live at home with my parents, and work full time so this is just a hobby for me at the moment, and I have a wonderful boyfriend who I have been with for around a year and a half now.

Not a lot more to add to that until I go to my course tonight.

Speak Soon
