Birthday cake with ribbon insertion

This cake is one of my favourites, very elegant. In this video tutorial we show how to use the Ribbon insertion tool, to make a fabulous decoration on a cake covered with sugar paste.
The Ribbon insertion tool should be used immediately after we covered the cake with sugar paste, until the fondant is still soft. As you can see in the video, you need to create a mask in parchment paper to be able to implement the technique in a precise manner over the entire cake. To get a perfect result from the early stages of preparation, we recommend you to watch our Tutorials for beginners where we show all the preliminary operations have to do to get cakes from flawless aesthetics.

Book cake

For a birthday or another special event book cakes are a classic. In this tutorial we show you how to decorate with piping bag and whipped cream. We made the base using a special mould book shape, and then we covered with white cream our cake. Then we decorated the edges of the book with the whipped cream and the pages of the book with the floral decorations. The roses in sugar paste make the cake even more beautiful. Remember to add flowers in sugar paste only a few hours before eat the cake. The flowers must be dry (prepared at least 24/48 hours before) and, if possible, be isolated from the cream with butter cream (same colour of the cream).

Simply birthday cake

Hi, in this video tutorial we’ll show you how we prepared a cake using only a decorative rolling pin.
The decorative rolling pin is available in the market in different types and we’ll show you the how to use the most common type.

We have different plastic cylinders of different sizes and shapes that we can use to assemble our decorative rolling pin to realize some sugar paste stripes according to our needs.

We created some sugar paste stripes to decorate the edges and to realize a bow that we’ll put at the top of our cake.
