100 Iconic Cakes – Have you been following this series, in the Cakes and Sugarcraft magazine? I think it’s fascinating. Over four issues the magazine is looking back over its first 100 issues and choosing one cake from each issue. Readers are then asked to vote for their favourite cake from the 25 featured. The current magazine – issue 104, Spring 2009 – is featuring issues 51-75 and I am privileged, along with other very talented sugarcrafters, to have two of my cakes featured:
Iconic Cakes – Karting (Issue 59)
This Karting cake is from my first book, Hobby Cakes, published by Dutton Publishing. It makes an exciting and challenging project for avid modellers.
Originally created for my husband Graham when he turned 35! I know from all the feedback I’ve received, that it’s been popular with many other husbands too.
Iconic Cakes – Cockerel (Issue 75)
Winning best in class at the Salon Culinaire competition in 2001, this cockerel cake was created using a 6in ball tin and pastillage supporting pieces. He is a cake I’m still very proud of. I’m pleased to say, he’s still living with me, although he’s feathers have aged slightly – it happens to us all!
Have your say – vote today
