This September/October 2022 publication is the 171st issue of Cakes & Sugarcraft, an inspirational and informative magazine for anyone who enjoys making and decorating cakes.
A season drenched in tradition, autumn is the perfect time to reflect and embrace change. As the nights draw in, why not retreat to the kitchen and try your hand at some new cake and sugarcraft projects?
There are a bunch of original tutorials in this issue that will keep you occupied over the coming months. From simple recipes to detailed sugar work, we've got you covered.
Generic cakes are perfect for all occasions, and these ones will be your best friend if you're looking for something impressive that you can tailor to whatever style is needed. Sweet LionHeart’s black cake is a great example of this. Not only does it teach you how to paint cakes, apply ganache drips and add chocolate work to your designs, but it's achievable in any colour imaginable. Even themed cakes like Noah’s Ark can be presented at a variety of celebrations, such as a baby shower, Christening or even a first birthday party.
We also haven't forgotten that the spookiest time of year is nipping at our heels. Have a go at recreating Karen Taylor’s carved monster cake, which is sure to be a big hit with both children and adults alike. And let's not forget the amazing skull cupcakes honouring Dia de los Muertos, otherwise known as the Day of the Dead. Bring a pop of colour to your festivities or themed parties with these fun modelled treats, a delicious way to celebrate!
As usual, we have beautiful bunches of sugar flowers ready for you to try out. Fancy something timeless? What about a crisp white cake with delicate hand-painted elements and a king protea centrepiece. Looking to incorporate some colour? Give a pretty pastel arrangement or a blooming big and bold peony flower a whirl. If you want something inspired by bridal wear, try a classic white wedding cake with stylish wafer ruffles and a large sugar rose.
