Day 2 – Christmas Pudding Chocolate Covered Oreos

Christmas 2 026

Mmmmm!  Christmas pudding shaped Chocolate Covered Oreos!

Now you can get specific chocolate oreo moulds that are a good deal smaller than the way I’m doing these.  I don’t have one, my kitchen is bursting with equipment and I may be the recipient of an angry husband should any more essential bits and pieces make their way into our house!

Cake Decorating – Top Tips #5

Get yourself a good Sugarpaste Rolling Pin!

This one may seems a bit daft, but how many of you are covering cakes with a regular old rolling pin?  Chances are its a wooden one and you’re finding it a bit on the short side?

Cake Decorating – Top Tips #4

Cake Decorating – Top Tips #3

Storing your left over Sugarpaste – Seal it Up!
