Get involved in my latest GIVEAWAY – with the Global Sugar Artists Network!


Hey cake chums! And a happy Wednesday to you all!

I wanted to stop by and let you all know about the exciting giveaway I am currently running over on both my YouTube channel and IGTV at the moment…

Yup, I have teamed up with the lovely folk over at the Global Sugar Artists Network to run a very special birthday giveaway and I would love for you all to get involved.

To help me celebrate the passing of another year, they have very kindly sent me two sets of their elite and much-sought-after paintbrush kits to share with two of my lucky subscribers.

Each kit contains three double-ended paintbrushes (six brush tips in total) in sizes #0, #00, #000, #4, #8 and #10, all of which are kept in pristine condition, thanks to their innovative breathable caps.

If that wasn’t enough, the Global Sugar Artists Network paintbrush kits also come complete with their own stunning leather pouch, meaning that you’ll be able to use them at home AND on-the-go.

To check out the brushes, find out more about the giveaway and to get your entries in for the YouTube portion of the giveaway, check out the video below (don’t forget to subscribe):

Once you’ve done that, head over to my Instagram at this link for yet ANOTHER chance to win!

You have until Thursday 14th February to get your entries in, but why not just do it now? 😉

Good luck! x

In some rather exciting news, we’re introducing a couple of brand new features this week, in the hope that I will get to share even more of your news and, perhaps more importantly, your cake creations!

First up, we have the Community News feature, which is a chance for you to contribute all of your gorgeous cakes, exciting new products you have discovered, fabulous competitions you want to share, upcoming events, industry gossip, comments, opinions and everything else besides. I’ll also be stalking my way around social media too, so don’t be surprised if one of your cakes pops up unannounced!

The other new feature this week is celebrating our Social Chums – the members of my Cake Chums – With Mr Baker’s Cakes Facebook group who have been actively sharing in the group this week. If you’re not already a member, you can join up here, by the way.

As a result of all the newness, a couple of our regular features are having a week off this week, but rest assured, they will be back next week, so keep your contributions coming!

How to Cover a Cake in Sugarpaste!

Hey #cakechums!

It’s a little later than planned, but the final episode of my Cake Basics miniseries is finally up!

In this week’s episode, we’re talking all things covering cakes, including how to achieve a flawless finish using buttercream or ganache, and then how to cover a cake, using sugar paste (AKA fondant, ready-to-roll icing, etc).

I also share and demonstrate some of my favourite cake tools that have helped me to truly master the art of sugar paste, so if you are someone who finds it tricky to cover your cakes or simply want to up your fondant game, check it out now!

And, as always, if you’d prefer to watch it in its natural habitat, you can find it over on YouTube here.

Thanks for watching guys and don’t forget to subscribe!
