Getting to Grips with… Embossing on Cakes!

Happy Sunday, cake chums!

After having them sat on my development shelf, gathering dust for a shameful amount of time now, in this week’s video, ‘Getting to Grips with… Embossing on Cakes!’ I’m finally getting stuck in to all of the cake embossing kits that I have been sent or gifted over the last 12-18 months.

I’m sure that many of you will have been using products likes the Sweet Stamp by AmyCakes, the Sugar Press from Crafty Designs and the PME Fun Fonts on your cakes for a while now, and I know that I have definitely seen some stunning examples of how they can be used to enhance the cakes we create, but are they really as easy to use as they look?

In my newest series, ‘Getting to Grips with…’, I’ll be having a go at a whole host of skills and techniques that can be used to take our cake designs to the next level, and hopefully, helping some of you to have the confidence to give them a go for yourself at the same time.

In this week’s first episode, ‘Getting to Grips with… Embossing on Cakes!’, we’ll be checking out some stunning fonts from Sweet Stamp by AmyCakes, the Sugar Press and PME, applying them to both a cake and a cake board, as well as exploring some of the other fantastic add ons and embellishments available from these brands to really elevate our cakes.

And if you are somebody that HAS been embossing for a while, be sure to get in touch and share your top tips for how to get the very best results from these fabulously innovative tools. Not to mention, your favourite ways to incorporate them into your designs and how you like to fill your embossed text and other elements… Are you a painter, a pourer, a duster, a wiper, a sprinkler, or something else entirely…?

You can watch this week’s video right here on the blog, below – or why not head directly to YouTube, where you will find links to all of the products featured – as well as being able to check out my other videos and hit that subscribe button while you’re there… 😉

I do hope you enjoy my latest video, ‘Getting to Grips with… Embossing on Cakes!’ and remember to pop back at the same time next week for part two…

Until then, Happy Caking!
