Time for another helping of Something Sweet…

Hey hey, cake chums! Welcome to another issue of Something Sweet, your weekly slice of all the latest news from the world of cake!

In this week’s issue, I have assembled a whole host of the biggest names in cake to share their top tops on how to survive the Cake International competitions unscathed and take the most enjoyment from the experience – including an exclusive look at Corinna Maguire’s essential guide to transporting your cakes.

You’re invited to a fabulous event hosted by Cake Decoration and Sugarcraft Magazine, with Cassie Brown and FMM Sugarcraft, Rhianydd Webb shares her top tip on how to recycle the packaging from your cake supplies orders and it’s your last chance to get your entry in for Renshaw’s Battle of the Bakes.

We also have a very special Halloween instalment of ‘I wanna make that’, for which I have been scouring the web, looking for the very best tutorials to help you create a whole host of creepy cakes and spooky bakes this Halloween, regardless of your experience level or ability.

As always, we check out some incredible creations from some amazing artists, including this week’s much discussed Royal Wedding cake, of course, and we find out who has scooped this week’s Cake of the Week.

And we’re back!

Happy Sunday once again everyone and welcome back to another issue of Something Sweet!

The eagle-eyed among you may well have noticed that we didn’t have an issue last week because I was frantically getting ready to reveal the result of my collaboration, The Greatest Showpiece, at the fifth birthday party of my godson Jacob.

Suffice to say that I survived the experience and am now back with yet another helping of all of the latest news from the world of cake – I do hope you missed me as much as I missed all of you.

In this week’s issue, find out which caking superstars have been nominated for this year’s Cake Masters Magazine Awards, we take a look at this weekend’s hottest cake event – the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show and slightly closer to home, I’ll tell you a little about where I am off to later this morning – which should explain why I have published a little bit earlier than usual…

In the collaboration station this week, I am sharing the result of the first ever Mr Baker’s Blog collaboration, there’s a little prod to remind you of a fantastic opportunity to win with Renshaw and we find out which cake artists were chosen by Go Hen for their annual round up of The UK’s Top 50 Wedding Cake Designers 2018.

Of course, we are also jam-packed with lots of beautiful cakes and bakes, including pieces from Daisy Cakes and the Tattooed Bakers, and we find out who has scooped that all-important Cake of the Week!
