The bicycle cake!


Here’s a really playful bicycle themed cake we created! It’s a classic Victoria Sponge cake with the large boulder as a second tier. The cake is covered with custom coloured icing and decorated with various edible sugarpaste modellings. We had lots of fun making this cake!

‘Tutorial Tuesday’: How to make a sugarpaste witches’ hat and broom for Halloween!


With autumn underway and Halloween just around the corner we’re celebrating the upcoming festivities by bringing you autumn and Halloween themed tutorials from now ultil the end of October!


What you will need:

Edible glue
Hologram Graphite cake glitter by Rainbow Dust
Lush Lime cake glitter by Rainbow Dust
White Lustre Dust by Sugarflair
Custom coloured fondant
Blade and Shell tool by Tala
Paint brushes
Non-stick rolling pin by Tala
Circular cookie cutter by Tala


Step one: Roll out the black coloured fondant and cut a circle out using the cookie cutter. This will form the base of the witches’ hat


Step two: Using the left over black icing form a ball ensuring it begins to taper at one end. This should look like an oversized ‘raindrop’.


Step three: Once rolled out use the blade tool to create a  ghoulishly green band.


Step four: Paint the base of the hat and the larger end of the ‘raindrop’ with edible glue and esemble them as shown above.


Step five: Using a small amount of the grey coloured fondant form the shape of a buckle. To give the buckle a metallic sheen brush with a little lustre dust. Before attaching use the tip of the blade tool to create ‘buckle holes’.


Step six: Using the Lush Lime and Hologram Graphite Rainbow Dust add a finishing sparkle to the witches’ hat. Gently paint with edible glue before applying the glitter if it does not stick.


Step seven: To make the witches’ broom roll the dark brown fondant until it resembles a broom handle. Roll the light brown icing and use the blade tool cut out a ‘fan’ shape’. Continue to use the blade tool to create a bristle effect.


Step eight: Glue both pieces together and add extra detail by applying small amounts of grey fondant to secure the broom end to the broom handle.


Now you have two spooktacular sugarpaste creations to decorate your Halloween themed cupcakes!
