An airbrush machine was always on the must purchase list. Not only is time cut in half for fondant base coloring but the finished look is just amazing. This pink and purple color mix came together to create a smooth bright base.
The flowers are made from pulled sugar in white and clear sparkle. The edible sequins, made from gelatin, also shimmer. The paper thin dots took a full 24 hours to dry but a technique I am sure to use again in future designs.
Applications, as we all know, are very nerve racking. Did I put the right dates? Did I spell everything correctly?. Well I must have because after months of gathering information and frequent trips to NYC Business Solutions for help, (thank you Courtney!!), word arrived Cake Heights Inc. is certified! The wait was crazy and of course every negative thing passed my mind, but when I opened the email on May 2, all I could do was yell “Woohoo!!”.
Now as the company is nearing 2 years in operation, I have higher hopes then ever this is right. OK so on to the next step… whatever that may be.
So everyone loves color and it is showing. The popular trend is layering colors to create dramatic looks with simple buttercream designs. If you want to go the extra mile, add colorful cake layers.
This very cute design contains both butter cream and fondant elements. A great option to keep cost reasonable with a polished look. The “garden veggies” are created from sugar paste and dusted with color to give a more realistic appearance.
Gum paste flowers can be amazing touches to simple cakes.
