I recently received some Dobla Candy Canes from Dawn Foods just before Christmas, and I thought it would be worth doing a mini-review on them. Now even though they were a gift, I haven't been asked to review them. However, I'm trying to review all the items that I use so that you guys know what they are and where to buy them from. That way, you can make your own informed decisions about the products you see on my site and decide if they're for you. Now back to the review! Dobla Candy...
 
I have recently been looking for a Cake Stand to display my cakes in after baking and came across this Omada Design Tray with a Domed Lid. Packaging The cake stand came in a brown box with a plastic bag around the lid to prevent scratching or rubbing inside. I binned the exterior box and removed the packaging. I then washed it in hot soapy water and dried it with a piece of kitchen towel. (According to the product info online it is dishwasher safe). The cake stand is made from acrylic...

I recently made a 100th birthday cake and was looking for a 100th Happy Birthday Cake Topper to enhance, highlight and, add a little sparkle to the petite cake that I was making. So after a bit of searching on the internet, I came across this. It had just the right amount of bling without being too harsh on the purse strings. The topper came relatively quickly in the post and arrived in a 'Please do not bend envelope' to prevent any damage in transit. Dimensions and specifications of the...
 
I was recently asked to make a Beauty and the Beast cake and was looking for a swag/drape mould to incorporate into my design. So, after further research, I finally settled on this — the Triple Classic Swag Mold created by Marvelous Molds. The mould is approximately 1800 mm wide x 450 mm deep, extremely bendy and has raised bladed edges to give you a better cut. This one is taken from their Swag Mold Collection. Before use, I washed the mould in hot soapy water and left it to dry. To...
 
I have been searching for some Beauty and the Beast Cupcake Toppers recently and decided on these premium rice paper ones from My Cupcake Toppers. The website has a variety of products available including Edible Icing, Rice Paper and Premium Rice Paper Toppers, all of which can be ordered in sheet form or pre-cut into discs. I opted for the 15 x Premium Rice Paper Pre Cut Discs. (I know for all you eagle-eyed readers there are only 13 in this picture, but the other two are pictured...
 
I've been looking at buying some more patterned/embossing moulds recently and came across this design mat. It is from the Katy Sue Range and is their Daisy Design. The mat itself doesn't look that exciting; however, once paired with your icing it will create the most beautiful patterned results. It comes with a set of instructions on the reverse side to advise you how to use it, and you must wash the mat in hot soapy water and then let it air dry before use. It's made from FDA approved...
 
These Cake Star Push Cutters are simple to use alphabet plungers, and although they're a little bit expensive, I've found that they are worth the investment. Not only do they save me time with letter cutting, but I have also used them on my last three cakes. I purchased the Mini Uppercase versions as I had read reviews that the Upper Case ones were a little on the large side. The cutters come neatly packed in a slot of 26 letters. The plunge cutters themselves are approximately 34mm...
