Rainbow Cake Tutorial
Francezka Bell’s pretty Rainbow Cake tutorial demonstrates how you can make your Cake Craft Pen designs stand out, and explains how to create a watercolour effect with the Pens and Flower & Modelling Paste.
Top Tip: Let your paste set before drawing
Leave your Flower & Modelling Paste shapes for a minimum of 30 minutes to skin over before writing or drawing with the Cake Craft Pens, although you will need longer if working in a humid environment. If your paste is still slightly flexible, draw on lightly so you don’t press through the top. While your paste is still flexible you can shape this around your cake. For firm cake toppers, leave your paste to set for 24 hours, turning halfway through.
Fall for Flower & Modelling Paste
This is a firmer paste which needs to be kneaded before use until smooth and pliable. Cut your paste into smaller chunks to make kneading easier. Keep any paste you’re not using wrapped up to prevent drying out.
Flower & Modelling Paste can be rolled thinly, using a rolling pin or pasta roller, which makes it great for tracing over designs with Cake Craft Pens. Leave decorations and models to set for 24hrs for ease of handling. Add gel colours or dusts to your Flower & Modelling paste to create cake toppers, decorations and delicate flowers.
Fall for Cake Craft Pens
Double-ended Cake Craft Pens allow you to work on different scales. The thin end is great for outlines, intricate work and adding character to models, while the thicker end is great for adding bold colour and patterns.
Brush clear alcohol or rejuvenator spirit over the pens to create a watercolour effect. Sometimes small sugar particles may dry up the nib, simply dip into warm water to clear.
