A variety of creations, ideas, and inspiration for you.
Keeping up with the festivities but having a different take this year, I thought I would make some Christmas Pigs in Blankets toppers for you. I made them using the following items: Walnut Whip Pink, Green & Red Icing Black Pearls Blanket Mould Ball Tool Smile Tool Edible Glue These festive additions offer a wonderful twist on the traditional Christmas topper, steering away from the usual Santa or Reindeer designs and with a whopping 128 million people incorporating them into their Christmas dinners this year, I couldn't help but recreate them in cake topper form. Even if the original versions aren't your cup of tea, these cakey alternatives are bound to bring joy to your loved ones and add a charming touch to your Christmas...
Welcome back, lovelies, to that eerily spooky time of year again. So with that in mind, I've crafted another Terry's chocolate orange, but this time, a Pumpkin for you to have a go at. Not only are they quick and easy to do, but they are also a fangtastic thing to make with the kids. See what I did there! But the best bit is you don't have to have to be super skilled, as your pumpkins can be anywhere from super smooth to charmingly rustic. The choice is yours. All I want you to do is have fun making them. To make Terry's chocolate orange pumpkins, you'll need the following items. These are approximate weights, so you may have some icing left over. Ingredients 1 x Terry's Chocolate Orange 65 Grams - Lincoln Green Icing - Base...
With it being Easter weekend, I decided to have a little fun with a Cadbury's Creme Egg and made an edible chocolate Gruffalo topper with it. Now, I know it isn't your traditional Easter theme; however, it's an amazing book and something that brings back wonderful memories with myself and my daughter hence the reason for making it. So, seeing as it's made using a Creme egg, that's justification enough for me to have it incorporated at Easter. Well, that's my excuse anyway. To make the body of the Gruffalo, I used a Fox's Round biscuit for the base and then a Cadbury's Creme egg for the body. These were stuck together using a little melted chocolate. The remainder of the Gruffalo was then made using the following: Brown...
So after the mishap with the Candy Cane Chocolate Bars, I started again and made some Candy Cane Chocolate Bark instead. The difference between them is that the bark uses much thinner chocolate bars. These were then left to set at a cold room temperature and scored whilst still a little soft, allowing them to be broken up easily into pieces once the bars were fully set. It is called bark because of the chocolate's rough and broken exterior, the varied shapes and the rough texture of the toppings that, as a whole, would represent bark. You can make chocolate bark using nuts, crushed cookies, dried fruits, sweets, toffee pieces or any other form of topping you can think of. The best thing about it is that it can be...
To get into the festive spirit, I have created another Terry's chocolate orange character, albeit this time a festive Highland Cow. 🎄 Now I know that cows aren't typically Christmas related but having recently seen lots of things in stores and on the internet relating to Highland cows, I thought I would put my own twist on things and came up with the following. (Thanks Julie, for the inspiration!) I will add bits of a tutorial to this, but at the minute, I just wanted to share her with you. I did umm and ahh about putting 'Moo' ry Christmas or Merry Christmoos but decided on the standard Merry Christmas instead. I also gave Henrietta a light sprinkling of icing sugar on the top of her head to keep in with the Christmas/Snowy theme...
As we are back on seasonal themes and with Halloween coming up, I recently made this Terry's Chocolate Orange Ghost and Pumpkins. The body of the ghost is made from Terry's Chocolate Orange, and the remainder is made from Icing/Fondant. Because my orange had split, I placed a small piece of icing fondant at the top to hold it in place. Then, to keep the chocolate orange on the board, I used another piece of icing/fondant at the base. At this point, measure your icing/fondant to ensure that it fits properly over your chocolate orange before your start to add the piping gel. Once you are happy with the size and shape, place it back on your silicone mat until needed. I then used piping gel to stick the icing/fondant to the...
If, like me, you're seriously busy at the minute but still looking for a quick way to enjoy the Jubilee celebrations. Then why not recreate these quick and easy cupcakes for the upcoming Bank Holiday. You'll only need a few Union Jack flags, edible red white and blue sprinkles, and cupcakes of your choice and voila you've created a quick and easy celebratory cupcake. In order to keep with the theme, I chose to put them in a red cupcake case which helps the flags pop on the top of the cake. You could always use the remainder of the union jack flags for sandwiches too. However, you choose to celebrate be sure to do it in style! Enjoy! Tutorials Easy Cupcake Toppers Creative Corner
If you're looking for a bit of inspiration this Valentine's Day, then why not have a go at making these cupcake toppers. All you need is red, white and black icing fondant: embossed rollers, a few heart cutters, a flower cutter and edible pens or paint. Equipment How to make... To emboss the icing fondant, roll it out with a rolling pin, then emboss it by rolling over it with your embossed roller and then cut it into your desired shapes. To make the 'I' shape, roll a sausage with red fondant and then cut the ends with a knife to straighten them off. To make the sheep, roll out white fondant, emboss it, then cut it into shape with a flower cutter. To make the face, roll a ball of black fondant, then flatten it and square it off...
