I’m not sure if you’ve seen this one on Mixing Sugarflair Food Colours on our YouTube channel yet, it’s from about 3 years ago now but the concept remains solid! We get asked quite a lot about the shades and variations that can be produced with professional food colours. We used Sugarflair as our example brand as they are one of our best selling food colours alongside Rainbow Dust Pro-Gels.
There’s two really helpful videos we put together to show you how to get the most out of mixing sugarflair food colours to create a range of colours.
I stumbles across this cute design on Pinterest… I love it on there! Gorgeous pallet of colour on this one by Torty a la Myska.
Personally I’m a big fan of those who go the extra mile with creativity on the board! The wood effect on this cake really makes it stand out and it can be created so easily with Impression mats and a little food colouring. Cake by Crafty Confections.
This airbrushed cake looks so cool! I love the golden shimmer added to it! Created by passioni di zucchero.
How about a nautical themed ted? This is simply beautiful by Bella’s Bakery. You can create realistic shells using a range of moulds and modelling paste. I personally love the shells and starfish mould by Alphabet Moulds.
I can tell a Shereen’s Cakes & Bakes cake from a mile away, Shereen just has the most awesome way with colours! I mean how cute is this?!?!
Romantic Ted! McGreevy Cakes has outdone herself with this one… gorgeous decoupage design. I’ll have this one for Valentines Day please! 😉
Cute Teddy Bear Picnic Cake by The Cupcake Lady. Create the floating balloon effect using a strong wire or dowel… gravity defying!
Tea Break for Ted! How adorable by Bake-A-Boo. Love the biscuits on the side!
Julie Cains Cakes has always really stood out to me! I love Julies individual style of creating texture. Amazing to know: each piece of sugarpaste is rolled to create hundreds of fury spikes! Now that’s dedication from a talented cake artist!
We love this wonderful design made by Marion Frost. The teddy on top was made using the Patchwork Cutters ‘Make a Teddy’ cutter! Fab ay!
Again the last contribution to our blog is by Marion Frost over at Patchwork Cutters. Marion has used the large number cutters and teddy bear cutter from the ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ set to create this simply stunning cake. Loving the daisy detail on the big 3!

4. Love this little 2 tier stack..what a fab idea creating a ruler around the edges… edible pens are great for doing signs and marking on your cakes! Found on Pinterest.
5. Now this isn’t a quick idea but it does look awesome! Found on Catch My Party.
6. Create the chalkboard writing effect by using white food colouring mixed with a little vodka to water it down, then simply paint on top of the black icing. Be sure to brush off the excess to stop it dripping 🙂 Either mix with a powder or a paste.
7. An easy-peasy sprinkled apple cupcake! Find out how they did it here!

Check out this super Cute Farm Yard Cake Tutorial brought to you by FMM Sugarcraft.
Using the latest cutters from FMM Sugarcraft making a super cute farm yard cake couldn’t be easier. Novelty cakes are always great fun to make!
The new cute animal cutters make it so much easier to put this gorgeous cake design together without all the extra hand cutting hassle!
Here’s what they look like once cut. I would definitely recommend using modelling paste here. Modelling paste is firmer and therefore much easier to release from the cutters than sugarpaste. This is even more imprtant in warmer months when sugarpaste can be very sticky making it hard to handle.
A quick tip to make your own modelling paste is to use 1tsp of Tylo Powder to 250g of sugarpaste, mix well then seal for 6 hours whilst it has time to work. Tylo makes your sugarpaste easier to work with and also allows it to dry firmer.
Here’s a video to show you exactly how to create your fun farm yard cake.
