In My Baking Kitchen

This month I’m sharing my baking and sugar craft kitchen! I can’t explain just how proud I am of the pieces in this month’s post. I always thought that I was heavy handed and impatient, but I’ve proved myself wrong!

In My Kitchen…

…Sits my new friend Bertie, who is made of modelling and sugar paste. He sits on a chocolate biscuit cake that I decorated. I attended a sugar craft course at Baking Academy Ireland and was taught amazing skills by a brilliant teacher.

…Lives a caterpillar, bee and some butterflies! This fruit cake is covered in almond paste and icing. I was so nervous placing and then glueing my name down onto the cake.

…Sits this flower paste rose spray! I thought it looked a bit old fashion, but the more I look at it, the more I love it! It was painstakingly made so i’ll be keeping it forever.

…Lives the Easter bunny! I made this Easter cake at The Cooks Academy in Dublin. The chocolate madera cake was covered in chocolate butter icing before being iced.

  2. I don’t know how I missed this post when you originally posted, but wow! These are adorable and I think those flowers, while maybe old fashioned, are just gorgeous. I am not a baker but I am trying to make cakes, cookies etc (sticking at the moment with the no bake kind!), so since my skills leave much to be desired, please, make and decorate a cake for me!
