Pastel Inspiration

Monday 7th May 2018

Renshaw prides itself on the wide variety of colour sugar pastes it produces, and this month we are focusing on the subtler colours we make. Pastels and muted tones are on trend for 2018, whether it’s a rustic style wedding or a floral baby shower, the cake is a very important part. So, here is some inspiration, whatever your occasion, we have a cake for you!

Our pastel colours


Animal Bakes 

Unicorn Cupcakes

Anything unicorn is on trend, so why not make them into cupcakes! These cute creations are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face and they’re super easy to decorate! Cover with white sugar paste, add the ears, a horn and the rest is frosting. You can colour the frosting up how you want, Rainbow Dust ProGels are extra concentrated, perfect achieving the exact colour you want.


Bug Cupcakes

These cute ladybug cupcakes are perfect for a kid’s party. Once you are done covering in sugar paste, add a touch of sparkle with Rainbow Dust products, they have a huge range including edible silver stars! These cupcakes are great because you can change the colours and patterns of the ladybugs to suit you, just remember their smiley faces!


Elephant Cake

When we see this cake, we think Baby Shower. A simple bunting design and SUPER cute elephant topper, this cake is simple but ideal for any celebration, big or small. Why not colour the sponge to reveal the gender of the new arrival too, a fantastic way of finding out whether it’s a Gorgeous Girl or a Bouncing Boy!


Wedding Day Bakes

Seaside Wedding Cake

Looking for something different? This pearlescent design is great for a couple who love the seaside. As this cake isn’t too big you could always make it for a birthday or another celebration for someone who is seaside mad! To get that beautiful sheen, lightly dust Rainbow dust edible silk pearl white over the sugarpaste with a soft brush. Tip- Combine small amounts of pink/ or blue icing with a small amount of white to get lighter shades of pink/ or blue, saving on sugar paste!


Pink Metallic Wedding Cake

A wedding cake is 100% a talking point so why not wow your guests with this pink metallic wedding cake. This show-stopping design, with 4 differing tiers, it is relativity easy to produce. (Honest) The time-consuming part will be the ruffled tier, but if you short for time swap this design for a smaller tier (= less time ruffling). If you’re not a fan of pink, you can always change the colour scheme, we have a wide range of sugar paste colours, click here to view.


Bird Cage Cake

This birdcage wedding cake design is very romantic. The delicate royal icing detail and realistic roses take this cake from great to jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Although this cake would take quite a lot of time and effort, it would be totally worth it! If green isn’t your thing we have 6 other pastel colours to make this your dream cake.

Biscuit Bakes

Flower Biscuits

These biscuits wouldn’t look out of place at any celebration, birthday, wedding or a baby shower. A great way of filling your dessert table with small tasty treats, these are simple biscuits- all the work is in the decoration.

Lego Biscuits

Make baking fun with these Lego biscuits, simply make rectangular shaped biscuits varying in size and cover with different colours of sugar paste. Then roll small (even) balls of sugar paste and stick to the top with edible glue, hey presto, you have Lego biscuits. Tip- if you are baking various size biscuits, they will all take different amounts of time to bake, check on them regularly.


Pastel Christmas Tree Biscuits

We know that Christmas is miles off, however, these Christmas tree biscuits are too cute to not include.
