How do you brand your business when you are on a limited budget?

In my former life (the life I had prior to cake) I worked in marketing and spent a lot of time in the print production side of things. I’ve worked on small projects like business cards and flyers to bigger projects like custom display stands, with metal and plastic fabrication. When you work for a Read More …

Why is my fondant dry and cracking?

I wrote a blog post a couple of months ago about why fondant gets sticky or sweaty. In the process of doing that I realised I also get many people who struggle with the total opposite, fondant that cracks. I see these issues with cake decorating classes that I teach all the time. First of Read More …

Help! Why is my fondant sweating :(

The reason fondant sweats is because it has such a high sugar content. The best way to fix sticky fondant is to knead more icing sugar into the paste until it returns to a nice working consistency.

Sometimes you just have to try something different

I’m always in a bit of a weird mood before something major happens with my business. The launch of my Craftsy classes, the first overseas teaching trip, my first book… All those major moments kind of leave me in that state of panic and calm at the same time.

To teach or not to teach?

During the last year I’ve been dabbling in a few different hobbies and self-improvement courses. Honestly, it’s been so refreshing being a student again and going to a class that is not cake related. I forgot what it’s like to literally not know anything when you walk through the door – it’s intimidating but humbling Read More …

Getting to know Yumi Castrillo

When I first started cake decorating, sugar flowers never appealed to be because I was so impatient. I always couldn’t wait until they dried and would keep trying to touch them and end up breaking them. Plus I just found them so fiddly and hard 🙁 Over the years, I’ve learnt that I didn’t actually Read More …
