ISSUE 6 JANUARY 2013

B AKING ~ DECORATING ~ S H A R I N G

Cake Masters January Issue Happy New  Year!  What  a  year  is  has  been! We  wanted  to  do  something  a  li8le  different,  and  wanted   this  issue  to  be  a  visual  delight-­‐  cakes  of  all  colours  from   across  the  spectrum. There  are  several  special  cake  features  in  this  issue  but   the  best  one  is  the  50  Shades  of  Cake  Feature.    We   searched  high  and  low  for  cakes  to  feature  in  what  is   pages  of  coloured  cakes  -­‐  we  have  the  whole  spectrum  of   colours,  from  Purple  to  Blue  and  from  Green  to  Gold. We  hope  you  enjoy  this  feature,  as  it  looks  amazing  in  the   magazine. I  have  to  say  a  massive  thanks  to  Jen  from  Jen’s  Just   Desserts  who  is  for  the  first  Rme  wriRng  about  her   amazing  cakey  experiences  complimented  with  her   awesome  photography,  personally  these  are  the  best   pages  in  the  magazine  for  me. One  thing  we  try  very  hard  to  do  is  talk  not  only  about  cake,  but  about  you  -­‐  the  creator.   Interview  features  are  a  must  in  this  magazine  and  are  a  great  way  of  geUng  to  know  you  all.   Many  thanks  to  Molly  and  Richard  who  we  have  interviewed  and  have  featured  in  this  issue  of   our  magazine. We  have  so  much  planned  for  Cake  Masters  this  year  and  we  hope  to  have  our  magazines  in  print   soon  too!  I  really  hope  this  does  happen,  it  would  be  a  dream  come  true  to  see  hard  copies! Thanks to all our contributors who make the magazine simply awesome - we do have badges that you can use on your facebook page and also websites, so please do get in touch if you would like one. Looking forward to a fantastic 2013

Interview The theme of this issue is 50 shades of cake - lots of lovely different designed cakes in an array of colours...which is coming later! When most people hear the words 50 shades,they are of course referring to the best selling book of 2012. We think it is easy to say that the most shared fifty-cake was made by the fantastic Richards Cakes. It would only be fitting to have an interview with the man behind the cake.

RICHARD from Richard’s Cakes

The 50 cake >> 13 13


ISSUE 6 JANUARY 2013

Interview My full name is Richard Day and I am 48 years of age. My first childhood memory was watching my mother bake and so I attempted a butterfly shaped cake at the age of 6. This was made using a chocolate flake as the centre and nestle smarties as the wings.

   

Above: Richard  shaking  hands  with  Prince   Charles  at  a  Princes  Trust  event  

We have  7  people  in  my  team.   Myself,  Emma  the  manager,  Vicky   (cake  decorator)  ,  Hannah  (cake   decorator),  Hallam  (Baker),  Melissa   (who  is  front  of  shop,  and  also  runs   our  facebook  and  website)  and   Hayden  (Baker  and  helps  with   orders). Since  Melissa  set  up  facebook  less   than  a  year  ago,  the  power  of  the   internet  has  helped  us  go  from   strength  to  strength  with  people   traveling  miles  for  cakes  and   classes!   We  have  also  started  selling   tutorials  off  our  website   www.richardscakes.co.uk  which   people  have  found  via  facebook.

Richard with  one  of  his  first  cakes

IniRally I  worked  in  an  elderly  care   home  and  people  started  asking   me  to  make  them  cakes.  I  started   making  them  for  friends  and  family   as  a  hobby  and  people  kept  telling   me  to  start  a  business.   So  in  1993  I  was  lucky  enough  to   get  a  loan  off  the  Princes  Trust  and   opened  a  shop  .  

We have  transformed  our  first  floor   into  class  workshops  where  people   have  travelled  from  as  far  as   Athens  to  a8end.  

About the cake...

The  cake  was  iniRally  made  for  the   window  display  in  the  shop.  It  took   just  under  an  hour  and  a  half  to   make  and  was  just  vanilla. The  cake  was  made  by  Emma,  a   pastry  chef  and  confecRoner,  who   came  into  the  shop  one  weekend   and  asked  for  a  Saturday  job  -­‐  the   rest  is  history!

Emma enjoyed  the  last  book  the   most  as  it  started  to  have  more  of  a   story  line  and  you  got  to  know  the   majority  of  the  characters  in  more   depth.  It  was  also  interesRng  to  see   ChrisRan's  side  in  the  last  chapter   and  we  are  very  much  hoping  that   E  L  James  (the  author)  writes  the   books  again  from  his  side. We  had  no  idea  the  cake  would  go   so  viral  and  we  were  completely   overwhelmed  by  the  whole   response  we  had.  It  got  shared   over  1500  Rmes  on  facebook  with  a   total  of  around  13000  people  liking   the  photo. It  has  been  featured  in  magazines,   broadcasted  on  the  radio,   published  on  Fiey  Shades  of  Grey   facebook  page  and  we  have  also   done  numerous  phone  interviews   with  people  in  the  States. Since  then  we  have  made   numerous  cakes  for  customers  with   the  same  design  and  with  it  proving   that  popular,  also  run  and  sold  out     classes  on  it.   Emma  has  won  a  Gold  at  Hotel   Olympia  for  works  in  marzipan.   She  has  also  received  another  Gold,   2  Silvers  and  2  Bronzes  for  various   categorys  in  work  with  marzipan,   sugar  paste  modeling  ,  novelty   cakes  and  carving  with  lard.

A"ernoon Tea wi# Jen

Ahh… aeernoon  tea,  the  most   wonderful  of  BriRsh  tradiRons!     Although  aeernoon  tea  is  so   popular  that  it’s  served  all  over   the  world,  there  is  nothing  quite   like  aeernoon  tea  in  Britain.  In   my  case,  it’s  go8a  be  London,   baby!  (and  yes,  ‘coz  I’m  a   rubbish  driver  and  it’s  the  next   nearest  big  city  to  me  that  I  can   easily  get  to  by  train).

My love  affair  with  aeernoon   tea  (I’ll  shorten  it  to  “AT”  from   here  on  in)  started  about  a   decade  ago,  when  my  mum-­‐&-­‐ dad-­‐in-­‐law  gave  my  husband  &   me  gie  cerRficates  for  AT  at   Claridge’s.  I  mean,  seriously   laaa-­‐tea-­‐daaa…  I  was  hooked!     It’s  then  been  a  succession  of   ATs  all  around  London  and  the   world:  from  the  Ritz,  to  the   Mandarin  Oriental,  Browns,   Fortnum  &  Mason  and  even  AT   on  safari!  I’ve  been  to  fancy   ones,  casual  ones;  even  some   crappy  ones  and  yes,  some  that   were  so  unremarkable  that  I   can’t  even  remember  them.  But   hopefully  you’ll  indulge  me  in   my  selecRon  of  my  favourite  ATs   in  London,  which  are  all  places   that  I  have  been  lucky  enough  to   visit  recently  to  enjoy  some   amazeballs  aeernoon  tea. OK,  so  I  hate  lists  that  start  with   the  least-­‐best-­‐  first.  So  I’ll  give   you  my  favourite  one  now:  for   me,  it  has  got  to  be:  THE  PALM   COURT  at  the  Langham  Hotel.  

I mean  you  walk  in  it’s  like   WOW!  The  food  was  even  more   fab  and  ooh,  they  had  gin  and   tonic  tea,  along  with  many  other   tea  choices  and  the  service  was   great.     Firstly,  they  didn’t  do  just  plain   ol’  rectangle  finger  sandwiches;   there  was  a  decent  selecRon  of   different  kinds  of  savouries.  (I   dunno  ‘bout  you,  but  I  must   have  savoury  before  sweet  –  is   that  weird?)    If  you’re  not   afflicted  by  this  savoury-­‐before-­‐ sweet  thing,  not  to  worry,  ‘coz   the  cake  stand  is  served  with   both  your  sweet  and  savoury   selecRons.  Scones  are  provided   in  a  separate  basket  when   you’re  ready,  so  they’re  kept   nice  &  warm.  Not  that  I  even   needed  the  scones  aeer   sampling  everything  on  the  cake   stand  -­‐  get  this:  YOU  CAN  HAVE   MORE!  Yes,  this  it  the  bonus  of   aeernoon  tea  at  most  fancy-­‐ schmancy  places:  it  is  ALL-­‐YOU-­‐ CAN-­‐EAT  sandwiches  and   scones!  Some  places  even  offer   you  addiRonal  pieces  of  the   mini-­‐desserts/tarts/cakes,  etc!     Speaking  of  the  desserts  at  the   Palm  Court…definitely  a  case  of   tasted  as  good  as  they  looked.     They  provided  a  great  mix  of   tradiRonal  types  of  mini-­‐cakes,   fancy  religieuse,  jelly-­‐mousse   things  and  of  course,  a  macaron.   When  people  ask  me  to   recommend  where  they  should   go  for  AT  in  London,  the  Palm   Court  is  always  first  on  my  list!

Next on  my  list  of  faves  has  got  to   be  a  Re  between  BEA’S  OF   BLOOMSBURY  &  the  ‘PRET-­‐A-­‐ PORTEA’  at  the  Berkeley  Hotel.  If   you  know  both  of  these  places,  you   might  think  I’m  a  lil’  nutso  to  say   they’re  as  ‘good’  as  each  other.  But   that’s  just  it;  they  are  very  different   establishments,  but,  when   considering  the  food,  service  and   ambiance,  well,  they  are  both  just   as  fabulous  as  each  other,  but  in   different  ways.   So  I  went  to  Bea’s  with  friends   visiRng  from  out  of  town  (well,   Prague,  to  be  exact)  and  I  knew   they’d  likely  be  in  casual  aUre  aeer   doing  the  tourist-­‐y  things  ‘round   town,  so  there  was  no  way  we  were   going  anywhere  with  a  dress  code.   A  few  people  had  raved  about  

Bea’s, so  I  tried  to  book  a  table  at   their  Holborn  locaRon.  Li8le  did  I   know  that  even  this  most  casual  of   tea  establishments  had  NO   AVAILABILITY!?!  (Oh  yes,  please   note  that  some  London  AT  places   will  require  at  least  a  few  weeks,  if   not  months,  of  advanced-­‐booking).     But  the  lovely  woman  who   answered  the  phone  said:  “Just   walk  in,  I’m  sure  we’ll  be  able  to   seat  you,  but  you  may  have  to   wait.”    No  kidding  –  we  arrived  at   around  4:30  PM,  and  it  was   PACKED!  Then,  aeer  us,  the  queue   just  grew  and  grew,  certainly  a   testament  to  its  popularity,  well,   and  the  fact  that  there  were   literally  only  maybe  a  dozen  tables.   At  least  we  got  to  ogle  the  goodies   before  we  were  sat,  which  was  only   like  a  15-­‐20  minute  wait.  There’s  

nothing too  fancy  on  the  menu  and   I  did  love  the  homemade  appeal  of   all  the  goodies  on  offer.  The  tea   selecRon  isn’t  10  pages  long,  but   what  you  do  get  for  ‘only’  around   20  GBP  per  person  (which  is  about   half  the  price  of  the  fancy  ATs)    is   your  choice  of  cupcakes,  scones,   mini-­‐dessert  bites,  and  anything   else  you  may  wish  to  order  a  la   carte.  The  staff  were  super-­‐sweet   and  you  can  really  enjoy  a  relaxing   AT  experience  in  your  jeans  and   tennis  shoes.  Ooh  almost  forgot  to   menRon  ‘coz  I  only  recently  found   this  out  –  that  Bea  is  none  other   than  Bea  Vo  of  Asia  de  Cuba  and   Nobu,  both  of  which  I  LOOOVE,  but   that  aside,  her  cupcakes  are  yumm-­‐ azeballs  and  my  friends  and  I  who   tea’d  there  all  agreed  that  Bea’s   scones  were  the  best/lightest/

As for  the  ‘PRET-­‐A-­‐PORTEA’  at  the  Berkeley  Hotel,   well,  wowza,  what  a  very  unique,  fashion-­‐y  and   delicious  experience!    I  had  seen  a  friend's  snaps  of   her  birthday  AT  held  there  and  whilst  all  the  pix  of   ‘Pret-­‐a-­‐Portea’  look  incredible,  a  part  of  me  did   wonder  if  it  would  taste  as  good  as  it  looked.  I  was   not  disappointed!  This  is  one  of  the  most  fabulous  AT   establishments  where  it’s  “all  you  can  eat   sandwiches  and  all  you  can  drink  tea.”  I  was  not   limited  to  just  one  tea  choice  and  the  lovely  waiter   who  served  me  kept  asking  if  I  wanted  more   sandwiches,  or  if  I  wanted  to  try  another  type  of  tea.   Whilst  the  sandwiches  and  tea  were  yummy  and   filling,  it  wasn’t  unRl  the  cake  stand  arrived  with  the   three  Rers  of  addiRonal  savoury  bites,  plus  two  Rers   of  the  “fabulous  darling!”  creaRons  that  I  was  truly   wowed.  The  menu  described  every  scrumpRous   morsel  and  explained  the  designer  associated  to   each  item.  The  cool  thing  is  that  as  the  seasons/ collecRons  change,  so  does  the  assortment  of   sweets.  But  you  don’t  need  to  be  into  fashion  to   enjoy  this  experience.  There  were  families  there,   couples,  and  most  notably,  a  number  of  mothers   with  their  daughters  sharing  AT  together.  It’s   definitely  somewhere  I  would  have  loved  to  take  my   own  mom.  Unlike  some  of  the  other  hotels  offering   AT,  there  was  no  rush  to  leave  so  they  could  make   room  for  the  next  booking,  and    you  do  get  to  take   home  some  of  the  non-­‐perishable  goodies  you  aren’t   able  to  finish  in  a  gorgeous  hot  pink  “to  go”  box.

Last on  this  list,  but  definitely  not  ‘least’  is  AT  at  THE  ATHENAEUM    HOTEL.  What’s   their  claim  to  fame?    As  it  says  on  their  site:  “Our  sumptuous  aeernoon  tea   scooped  the  Tea  Guild's  presRgious  award  for  "Top  London  Aeernoon  Tea  2012".   Considered  the  'Oscars'  of  the  tea  world,  we  competed  against  world-­‐famous   London  hotels  and    tea  rooms  and    gained  the  Rtle  having  impressed  the  judges.”     OK,  their  tea  was  awesome!  It  really  did  feel  like  an  exclusive  seUng  for  AT  as   there  are  far  fewer  tables  at  the  Athenaeum,  but  each  space  really  felt  quite   private.  The  AT  is  not  convenRonally  served;  there  is  no  cake  stand    with  various   layers  of  different,  dainty  savoury  and  sweet  items.  You  are  hand-­‐served  a   selecRon  of  sandwiches  (again,  all  you  can  eat!),  then  scones  are  served  next.   Then,  if  you  can  even  eat  any  more,  a  humongous  dessert  cart  is  wheeled  towards   you  so  you  can  select  your  own  sweets  and  cakes.  I  somehow  staggered  through   to  this  course  and  did  manage  to  cram  in  a  good  selecRon  of  some  yummy  treats.     I  have  this  on  my  list  because  I  do  hold  stock  in  the  Tea  Guild’s  awards;  they  did   award  Best  Aeernoon  Tea  in  London  to  The  Palm  Court  at  the  Langham  Hotel  in   2011,  aeer  all.   I,  for  one,  hope  the  tradiRon  of  aeernoon  tea  never  ends.  In  this  fast-­‐paced  world,   where  it’s  all  “go!  go!  go!”  it’s  such  an  indulgence  to  sit,  relax  and  enjoy  a   leisurely,  delicious,  someRmes  decadent  experience.  Whilst  some  may  be  put  off   by  the  prices  of  some  of  the  higher-­‐end  ATs  in  London,  just  know  that  there  are   less  expensive  alternaRves  and  great  offers  to  be  had  from  various  websites.  You   will  also  be  given  enough  to  eat  to  feed  you  for  lunch  AND  dinner.  Eventually,  all   this  aeernoon  tea-­‐ing  inspired  me  to  host  my  own  aeernoon  teas  at  home!

Winners Acceptance Speeches

We at Cake Masters have been amazed by some of baking and caking talent out there and awarded some super talented ladies our Cake Masters 2012 Awards. We announced the winners in our December magazine and thought it would be a lovely idea to have some acceptance speeches from our winners.

Lesley Wright @ The Royal Bakery - Personality Award 2012 I started The Royal Bakery Facebook page after I made my husband a Father's Day cake. A few of my friends asked me how I'd made it, so I wrote a very quick, and not very good, tutorial and published it on my Page. Now I create free tutorials as often as I can, and occasionally write up something longer and more specialized for my online shop. The cakes I make are only for friends at the moment, but the California state cottage food law was passed last last year, so I am hoping to start a licensed home bakery very soon! I am utterly thrilled to be the recipient of the Personality of the Year Award! I'm lucky that I don't have a 'proper' job and can devote lots of time to my Facebook Page and the people that hang out with me there. It is very humbling to know that people went out of their way to nominate me for the award, I can't quite believe they see me as a personality! My Page has a theme every day, where we have fun, share our work, pause for thought and stir up some drama.

Nicola Tomkinson Sweet Creation - Special Mention Award 2012 Thank you for my award , What a truly amazing achievement My very first award since becoming a cake baker and decorator 5 years ago , Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to say a huge thanks to Allison Henry from Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eat Cupcakes for spreading the word about what I had done. She really got me this award and I am truly grateful. Secondly I'd like to say a massive thank you to my staff Sarah and Luke, some of the wedding cakes achieved wouldn't have happened with out them. I was just personally honoured we managed to help so many brides with their cakes on their special day no thanks to the wedding company brides of Portsmouth going bust. I'd also like to say a huge thank you to my husband Stuart Tomkinson because with out him I wouldn't have been able to work the long hours to make the wonderful designs for my special brides and lastly Cake Masters for my award :)

I couldn't do what I do without the support of my husband Neil, and my son Will, who have learnt that saying, 'what's for dinner?' isn't always the best idea on a Friday night at 6pm. My mummy is my biggest fan and goes to any lengths to send me cake goodies from the UK that I can't buy here. I must mention my fave cake girls, Peggy, Yahaira, Isabelle and Joanne, who I've never met, but can rely on for top cake talk at any time of the day or night! Thank you so much, Cake Masters, for rounding of 2012 in such a fabulous way for The Royal Bakery! 34

Lou Lou P’s Delights - Cake Pop Award 2012 I am a baker going by the name of Miss Insomnia Tulip AKA Lou Lou P’s Delights. Like many of us my Grandparents were my baking Inspiration, both village bakers during the Second World War. Learning all the traditional techniques from them as I grew up this has given me a firm grounding on which to base the creative pieces I now create. In fact I still use my Grandmothers Mason Cash ceramic bowl that has to be well over seventy years old. Indeed it is only recently that I have relented and brought myself a mixer, for years I worked exclusively by hand and still do a lot of the time. Whilst I have been baking all my life it was only a few years ago my amazing friend Nicolette Wells suggested I shared some of my work on Facebook. The reception was incredible and I became part of an online baking community that helped me build my confidence and portfolio of work. I have now been baking for little under a year and can’t imagine doing anything else for a living. I enjoy applying the techniques and disciplines I learned from my fine arts background to my treats, especially my trademark cake pops. I see each of my pops as their own individual tiny sculpture, each with its very own individual personality. In fact my portraits of key players in the Leveson Inquiry featured in the Guardian and on Have I Got News For You. I am so thrilled that others seem like them too, and to win an award for them is both humbling and exhilarating at the same time. For me it was never about winning awards, so for something to happen so organically makes it even more special to me. There are too many people who deserve a massive thank you and hope they know who they are? All my Facebook ‘fans’ and customers are of course very important to me and played the pivotal role in driving my business forward. Valeri & Christina from Queen of Hearts, they were the first girls I ‘bumped’ into online – although we have yet to meet in person they continue to offer support and are always there to offer advice and give me a shove. ‘Love Laura Lane’ ,‘Emily Made a Wish’ and ‘Jen’s Just Desserts’ raised my profile by sharing my work in the early days, and continue to do so, so massive hugs to them. Not forgetting ‘CakeMasters’ of course who expose my offerings to thousands who continue to give me the confidence to try new ideas. I have to reserve a special Thank You to PR goddess Miss Cakehead and all my ‘Eat Your Heart Out’ colleagues, there are too many to name check so I hope they don’t mind me referring to them en masse? Life wasn’t brilliant until I bumped into this crowd, then things changed dramatically. Working with them offers boundless opportunity and is both inspirational and fun. Often challenging our work certainly isn’t to everyone’s taste, but it definitely gets people talking. 35


Seeing that this is an acceptance speech, I cannot help myself...I have to pepper (or ice) it with Academy Award acceptance speeches...for these are the Oscars of the cake world! Firstly, you asked about a brief introduction about me and my business. I quote Hillary Swank from the 2005 Academy Awards; "I'm just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream. I never thought this would ever happen." Okay, I never lived in a trailer park...well, I did once, after my house washed away in a flood during 1996, but I have always had more than one dream. This one I have been pursuing for the past 5 years. I started off a business making 'picture cakes' (the ones with edible printed paper), and this evolved into experimental baking, lots of flops, batter on the ceiling and an absolute hate of baking...which turned out to be a false hate. I started making cupcake wrappers using exquisite imported paper...but I missed baking. I didn't miss 'ordinary baking', I missed the freedom of making a hundred mistakes to come up with a gem. So it started...why should anyone have to endure what I had to go through when I could write them the tutorial? How do I feel about winning this award? Well...I quote Sally Field from her 1985 Academy Award acceptance speech; "I haven't had an orthodox career and I wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it and I can't deny the fact that you like me - right now, you like me!" It is nice...it is more than nice...it is very special to me!! It reminds me that I am not just a girl in a South African outpost messing around with colours and textures and cakes and stuff! It means that people all over the world who may be stuck in a position where they cannot express themselves or be creative now have an opportunity to do so without going to the expense I had to. I love that...from Belgrade to Moscow to London to Los Angeles...everyone can have a Giraffe in their lounge or a garden in their cake...even if they cannot have a real one.

Any people I would like to thank? There are plenty of those...Mr. Mark Elliot Zuckerberg for inventing Facebook (the platform enabling me to share my ideas with you), Mr. Defy for making my oven, Mr. Bosch for my mixer, Mr. Golden Cloud for the flour, Ms. Chicken for the eggs, Mr. Royal for the baking powder...my mom (Milly) and dad for liking each other enough to have me...my Producer, (Karel du Toit), My Scientist (Karel du Toit), My Agent, (myself), My 25 year old daughter Sarah who started my love of baking, Mr. Sunshine for my garden (which serves as great inspiration), and my three cats for running away when the mixer explodes...and then licking up the residue without complaining. To quote Gwyneth Paltrow; "I don't feel very deserving of this in your presence." But...it is nice!

Rosie Cake Diva - Wedding Cake Award 2012 Gosh…. It’s hard to know where to start in thanking people for my AMAZING award. Having only made cakes for my 4 children it was a huge leap for me to set up a business making cakes for others. Baking cakes for strangers is daunting enough, but to be responsible for someone’s 6 tier wedding cake, as one of my first proper commissions? Well I have to admit that I nearly turned it down! I am so very glad that I didn’t. I have to tip my hat to Peggy Porschen, because it was definitely her floral style that inspired the design process for me and the bride. But in all honesty, I couldn’t have had such a successful result without the help and patience of my family. There were so many flowers to make and I had so little time. I hardly slept and I don’t think my kids had a proper meal for a month. That said, they have become well versed at fending for themselves and Charlie (age 10) now makes a mean cheesy pasta! There’s always an up-side! This has all been extremely new to me. My first ‘paid for’ cake was only in May 2012 and the ‘award winning’ wedding cake was only a couple of months later…so my learning curve has been ridiculously steep. I’ve always been artistic …..and I definitely have a love for the dramatic and extreme….so that has all driven me to make cakes that have a bit more ‘Wow’ factor!

Carina’s Cupcakes - Cupcake Award 2012 Carina's Cupcakes was launched in June 2010 and I started my business having never even cut a butterfly or bought a pack of sugarpaste!! I am completely self taught and now teach the techniques and methods I have taught myself all over the country. This year we will also be teaching internationally in Spain and the Netherlands. Our online shop provides tutorials, equipment and inspiration for hobby and business bakers alike with new and exciting products always being sought. When I won the Cupcake award from Cake Masters I was extremely flattered! There are some awesome cupcakers out there and its a real honour to have such recognition within the Facebook baking community. It really topped my year nicely following our Cake International Gold and best in class!! Plus the award is totally awesome and has pride of place in my kitchen!

Thank you so so much Cake Masters

There are lots of people who have helped me along the way but there is one group of ladies in particular who have seen me through my darkest AND brightest days!! My Cakey Godmothers!! This group of 30 odd ladies have provided undying support and in particular id like to thanks Liah of Custom Cupcakes, Lisa my Glamorous Assistant at Cupcake Boutique, Susan Title and Vicki Murray of Vicki Murray cakes and Pastry's without these ladies i would be nowhere!!

P.S. Mr Cake-Diva (who is actually called Jamie BTW) has just said…’have you explained to Cake Masters that the ‘Wedding Cake’ was the second most time consuming thing you’ve ever done in your life? The first being you writing your acceptance speech for your Cake Masters Award! (Cheeky sod).

Thank you Cake Masters for being totally fab and giving a little added recognition to the Facebook cake community our environment has its pro's and cons but you guys definitely add a little gratitude and happiness to the Cakey World!!

For me 2012 was the most AMAZING year - The Queen’s Jubilee-The London Olympics - but my Cake Master’s Award was without a doubt the big fat cherry on the icing on the (6 tier)cake!

The Cake Decorating Company - Best Retailer Award 2012 The Cake Decorating Company are innovators in cake decorating and chocolate making supplies. We source unique and contemporary products from all around the world and are UK Distributors of many, such as Dinkydoodle Airbrush and paints, The Mat, SugarVeil and Silicone Plastique. We are also one of the leading providers of bespoke edible imagery. On our website you can browse over 6,000 items, keep up to date with all the latest products and buy from our online shop. We also run a wide range of affordable courses that are suitable for all skill levels in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with award winning teachers. North Star Cakes - Novelty Cake Award 2012 I trained as a painter and sculptor and studied fine art and art history at university before working for a private collector and then two of the largest fine art auctioneers in the world based in London. Leaving the art world in 2006 to start a family I was a stay at home mum until October 2011 when North Star Cakes began trading. I am based in Maidstone, Kent and I make bespoke cakes, I am often asked to make cakes based on the natural world but I also like to make pretty cakes, and I adore making sugar flowers. Having been trading for only 9 months when the snake cake created as much interest as it did I was completely overwhelmed and surprised by the reaction it got, I could never have anticipated that anyone outside of my local town would ever hear my name and it was a bit of a roller coaster ride, however the interest in the cake has presented so many opportunities that never would have materialised otherwise, and for that I will always be very grateful. When I won the Cake Masters Novelty Cake Award in December 2012 it was a complete surprise, I was obviously delighted to have won and I'm very thankfull for all the support I've had from Rosie and the Cake Masters team in my first year. I would like to thank my husband and children for being chief tasters at North Star Cakes, and for putting up with my cake obsessed nature, questionable taste in music and long working hours. I would like thank all the cake community for their support, for visiting my page and for leaving comments, I have admired so many of you. I would also like to say an extra big thank you to Lesley Wright at the Royal Bakery, Jacqueline Butler of PetalSweet and Peggy at Peggy Does Cake for kindly sharing their knowledge and supporting me early on; thank you to Anabelle, Joanna & Rob at Confection Perfection in Maidstone, Kent, for their brilliant sugar flower course and well stocked shop not to mention great advice. Thank you to Lara at the Kent Family Magazine who believed in me and gave me my first editorial; and thank you to my friends and design team Ramona & Eugen Hanusch who were prepared to work in exchange for cake when I first started; and lastly a special thank you to my cake idols Peggy Porschen and Duff Goldman for inspiring

We will also be at the Cake International shows at Manchester, London and Birmingham as well as the Cake and Bake shows in Manchester and London, please feel free to pop by our stands and say hello. We were all over the moon at winning the award for Best Retailer from Cake Masters. It was an honour to be considered and an even greater honour to win. We feel very proud of our achievement as it means that we are fulfilling our goal in striving to be the best. We would like to thank all of our loyal customers, without their support we wouldn't be where we are now. Their feedback is always welcomed, be it good or bad. Constructive criticism allows us to improve our service and give the customers what they want. We would also like to thank Cake Masters for their support and having the faith in our company to nominate us. Lastly, we would like to all of our staff for all of their continued hard work and dedication. (Below - Gemma with our fantastic award!)

Molly

from Molly’s creative cakes

Q: Tell  us  a  bit  about  you  and  your  family I  live  at  home  with  my  parents  and  older  brother,  in  the  small   village  of  Crawshawbooth  in  Lancashire.   I  recently  graduated  from  Manchester  University  where  I  studied   Special  Effects  Makeup.  I  have  always  been  somewhat  arRsRc   and  studied  art  at  A  Level.  Art  and  Design  is  my  main  passion  in   life,  and  I  believe  cake  decoraRng  allows  me  to  channel  my   creaRvity  in  a  more  accessible  way.  I  come  from  a  'showbiz'   family;  my  dad  Ted  Robbins  is  an  actor  and  comedian  and   presents  the  main  show  on  BBC  Radio  Lancashire  every  day  and   has  shows  on  Channel  4  and  CBBC,  it’s  fair  to  say  our  house  is  a   mad  one,  and  my  cake  decoraRng  only  adds  to  the  chaos  -­‐  and   mess! 43 43


ISSUE 6 JANUARY 2013

Interview

Q: What  is  your  earliest  memory  of  baking? My  earliest  memory  of  baking  was  with  my  gran,  using  a   Cadbury's  baking  book  from  the  80s  which  was  AMAZING!  I  have   actually  been  looking  for  it  for  the  past  two  years.   Q:  What  is  your  baking  story?     I  enjoy  sculpture  and  painRng  and  watching  various  cake  shows   on  food  channels  which  inspired  me  to  have  a  go  at  cake  making.   I  made  my  first  cake  18  months  ago  for  my  cousin's  18th,  and   people  seemed  impressed  with  the  likeness  of  the  caricature   model  on  the  cake.  Since  that  very  first  cake  I  have  tried  to   improve  with  every  cake  I  make  and  like  to  think  I  am  bringing   something  new  to  the  cake  decoraRng  world  with  each  one.  I  am   self  taught,  and  I  love  individual-­‐lising  designs  for  each  of  my   clients,  so  they  feel  like  each  cake  is  personalised  for  them.  As   well  as  cake,  I  have  also  branched  out  into  fimo  topper  modeling,   and  have  learnt  and  developed  techniques  such  as  hand  painRng   onto  sugarpaste,  and  working  with  chocolate  too.  My  speciality  is   making  animals,  and  one  day  I  would  love  to  only  specialise  in   animal  cakes! Q:  What  have  you  learned  about  yourself? I  have  learnt  that  I  cope  well  under  pressure,  oeen  coping   with  up  to  20  orders  a  week,  as  well  as  never  turning  anything   down.  Even  if  what  the  customer  is  asking  for  seems  daunRng   and  I  don’t  have  a  clue  about  how  to  go  about  it,  I  will  always  say   yes,  even  if  it  means  teaching  myself  an  enRrely  new  skill.  This   means  I  learn  the  techniques  as  and  when  I  require  them,  giving   me  confidence  in  my  own  skills  with  each  cake  I  create.   Q:  Where  do  you  get  your  baking  inspiraRons  from:   I  was  iniRally  inspired  by  cake  decorators  such  as  Duff  Goldman   and  the  bakers  at  Charm  City  Cakes,  as  well  as  Ashley   Vicos,  Buddy  Valastro,  Bronwen  Webber,  Norman  Davies  and  the   rest  of  the  'food  network'  decorators,  but  as  I  develop  as  an  arRst   in  my  own  right  I  find  inspiraRon  all  around  me  I  am  greatly   inspired  by  nature  and  animals.

Interview Q: Who  is  your  role  model:   There  are  so  many  incredible  cake  decorators  out  there,  and  I  am  inspired  daily  by  individuals'  work,  as  well   as  fine  arRsts,  painters  and  sculptors.  American  decorators  such  as  Ashley  Vicos,  Duff  Goldman  and  Norman   Davis  will  always  inspire  me  with  their  innovaRve  creaRons,  but  I  like  to  say  I  am  inspired  by  people  from  all   walks  of  life.  Cake  Masters  also  gives  decorators  a  playorm  to  share  their  work  with  likeminded  people,  and   I  think  we  all  have  Rosie  to  thank  for  that! Q:  What  has  been  your  biggest  challenge? I  created  a  top  table  wedding  cake  for  a  wedding  last  summer,  which  included  40  wedding  guests  as  well  as   the  bridal  party.  The  Bride  and  Groom  found  out  what  each  guest  was  wearing,  and  provided  me  with  a   photo  of  them,  I  then  created  each  individual  character  out  of  sugarpaste  in  true  likeness.  The  cake  took   over  2  weeks  in  total  to  create  and  was  nearly  5  feet  long!  I  have  a  wonderful  supporRve  boyfriend  Martyn,   who  is  always  around  when  I  need  support,  he  helps  me  especially  with  structural  issues  and  problem   solving  too.

Definitely  winning  silver  at  Cake  InternaRonal  in  the  Wedding  Cake  category!  I  made  a  three  foot   high  wedding  cake  which  was  decorated  in  a  rainforest  theme.  It  featured  bamboo,  tree  bark,   orchids,  lilies,  tropical  frogs,  a  sloth,  bengal  Rger,  parrot,  chameleon  and  giant  tortoise!!  This   was  the  first  cake  I  entered  into  Cake  InternaRonal  and  my  first  ever  cake  compeRRon,  I  really   wasn't  expecRng  to  win  anything  -­‐  so  silver  was  absolutely  incredible,  especially  when  I  got  such   great  feedback  from  the  judges  who  gave  me  great  construcRve  criRcism  as  well  as  praising  my   creaRvity.

Give us  3  top  baking  Rps:   1.  Using  vodka  instead  of  water  to  sRck   sugarpaste  decoraRons  together  and  also  to   using  vodka  to  'clean'  cakes  of  icing  sugar   means  it  evaporates  quicker  and  prevents  the   cake  from  becoming  water  logged  and  sRcky.   2.  Adding  tylo  powder  to  regular  fondant  icing   creates  a  medium  strength  paste  to  make   models  from,  it  is  a  much  cheaper  alternaRve   to  mexican  modelling  paste  or  flower  paste.   3.  Madeira  sponge  (with  the  addiRon  of  plain   as  well  as  self  raising  flour)  creates  a  more   stable  base  for  carved  cakes,  and  has  a  longer   shelf  life!

I planned  to  add  a  filigree  design  around  the   cake  so  ordered  the  extra  Damask  cartridge,   li8le  did  I  know  that  the  basic  one  had  the   template  I  would  use  in  the  end.   It  was  trial  an  error  at  first  trying  to  get  the   best  results  which  turned  out  to  be  rolling  the   icing  very  thin  and  chilling  before  and  aeer  I   had  cut  before  removing  with  the  most  useful   tool  in  cake  making  "a  cocktail  sRck".   Since  then,  I've  been  researching  lots  and   have  discovered  hundreds  of  sites    and   groups  on  the  Internet  and  Facebook.    They   are  a  blessing  if  you  have  a  problem  or   quesRon  you  can  ask  and  within  no  Rme  you   have  all  the  advise  help  you  require.   I'm  coming  across  a  lot  of  places  that  run   courses,  I  wish  I  could  a8end  but  the  prices   are  very  steep  I  find  Google  or  YouTube  to  be   a  cheaper  alternaRve  for  teaching  myself   although  I'd  love  to  have  the  money  to  do  all   the  courses.   I  hope  you  follow  me  with  my  cakey   adventure  from  start  to  finish  and  I  will  keep   you  posted  on  how  I  progress,  its  the  council   health  and  safety  and  sugar  glass  next   spiderman  and  an  18th  cake  Rme  so  wish  me   luck.   I  can  be  found  on  Facebook  KirsRe's  Cakes   and  my  blog  kirsRescakes

the be8er.  My  mo8o  is  "let  the  cakey   adventure  begin" My  recent  creaRon  was  a  cake  for  my   daughter  19th  birthday  which  I  had  planned   in  my  head  and  went  well.  I  managed  to  use   my  new  cricut  mini  for  the  first  Rme  which  I   found  simple  to  use  and  gave  brilliant  results.
