Valentine’s Day Cake Tutorial

Valentine's Day Cake

Combining passion and romance for Valentine’s Day with Crystal Candy Passion and Romantique Stencils. These are the photos from a photographic tutorial on using Crystal Candy Cake Artistry Edible Gel and Crystal Candy Stencils to make an elegant Valentine’s Day Cake.

Valentine's Day Cake

Crystal Candy Stencils are an invitation to play with design and colour in a new way for me. I have always been hesitant to stencil on a cake covered in fondant as I always thought what if I make a mistake or don’t press hard enough etc and ruin my fondant. This stencilling onto edible paper was a way for me to practise stencilling and gain more confidence and I was really chuffed with how it turned out. Using a blob of Crystal Candy Cake Artistry edible gel in red, I spread this across the Romantique stencil, with its swirls of hearts amidst elegant whirls and dots.

I just love that I surprise myself every time I lift the stencil and reveal the printed pattern on the edible paper. I have to admit, I did a small whirl in my kitchen with delight at this new stencil.
