Working with chocolate doesn’t have to be challenging!
How to make an impressive White Chocolate Shard Cake in my project for Bake with Stork – obviously pink is my go to colour but switch up the colours and this cake is perfect for any celebration!
A couple of bright summery baking projects to share with you today!
First up a rainbow speckle cake – celebrating a birthday or just need an easy decorating idea to impress? This Rainbow Speckle effect is easy to do and looks brilliant too.
There is double the excitement in our house this December, obviously Christmas giddiness is setting in but also another force to be reckoned with – Star Wars mania!
If you have boys (and girls) of the small or indeed large variety that love a bit of Star Wars action then you’ll be excited at the new film release too, and of course I’m joining in with a spot of cake action!
I have to admit I love making these little chocolate models, this year I’ve come up with these cutie pie little chocolate penguins, I’m sure you know someone who’d love one of these!
You will need:
Round christmas tree chocolates
Lindt Lindor chocolates
Chocolate ready to roll icing (Renshaws – Amazon) or sugarpaste coloured dark brown
Modelling or flower paste (available in Sainsburys or Tesco)
Gel paste colouring in orange plus another colour for the scarves
Edible ink pen in black (Amazon)
A little pink petal dust (Amazon)
Small cake cards, a square of card covered in foil or a square of baking paper.
If you’re short of time it’s good to have a quick and easy idea up your sleeve for your Christmas cake. This quilted version is more a technique than a design and although I’ve just used almond paste (marzipan) you can do it in just the same way with a Christmas cake covered in both almond paste and ready to roll icing.
So it’s here! 1st of December is not only Advent Calendar day it’s the start of The Pink Whisk 12 Days of Christmas Recipes!
For day number 1 I’m bringing you these lovely Lebkuchen Christmas Pudding Biscuit Lollies, lovely little gifts or just because it’s Christmas!
Is making your children’s birthday cakes a full on event?
New research from Stork shows that nearly 50% of parents spend two and a half working days baking their kid’s birthday cake, with one in 10 baking well after midnight!
I’ve been busy working on some more projects for Stork and I think you might just like this one!
If you’ve loved Chelsea Flower Show and are inspired to get a little green fingered then some edible flowers and a stunner of a flowerpot cake could be just the project you need.
So how about Photo Booth Prop Biscuits? Brilliant fun with a biscuit on a stick, plus the proceeds as always are going to a great cause!
