Lil’ Lovebugs

I made some bugs and they’re kinda cute not to mention that they’re in luuuuv. This is a quick and easy little modelling tutorial for all the little love bugs out there for this upcoming Valentine’s day. I’ve never really been a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Partially for the fact that my husband always needs to remind me that it’s just a “Hallmark holiday”.  He still always gives in and brings me flowers though.  Plus it’s also a really good excuse to eat lots of chocolate too!!  Not that I need an excuse – but it’s handy to have one ready when you need it. For this one I’ve used both Vera Miklas White and Dark modelling chocolate.  The dark because it’s easier to colour to black without having to add too much gel colour and plus it holds its shape better for things like the little arms (yup – no supports in those puppies) and the eyelashes.  Everything either red or white were both made with the white modelling chocolate and I just coloured them with Extra red gel colour...

Cake Resolutions of 2017

Happy New Year to all of my cake-y friends!!  To celebrate, I’ve put together a little compilation video of some of my favourite cakes that I’ve made throughout 2016.  It’s great to see them altogether.  But I have to tell you, that while I was looking through them, I found myself criticising each one with what I could have done better or changes I would have made.  “I didn’t have enough time, “Halloween got in the way” or “It’s Tuesday”!   🙂    So… this year I’m going to make some changes. Things can get over-thought and over-worked sometimes…  Like, do you ever find yourself making sure there’s enough time after making a cake, to clean the entire kitchen to a sparkling shine, before an order was being collected.  Because God forbid that they would realise that it ACTUALLY takes the entire contents of every cabinet and every tool that you own, to be on the counter in order to complete a cake order.  No wonder people often undervalue the time it takes to make one of these creations.  We’re making it look too...

Cake International Gold!

Procrasti-caking (prəˈkræs.tɪ.keɪk.kɪŋ) Definition: To keep delaying a cake that must be done soon, often because it is daunting or you still have just a few more hours until it actually needs to be finished. What a weekend at Cake International!!  I didn’t think that the buzz from last year could have been outdone – but I think it actually might have gotten better.  I’m a little stunned after it all to be honest!        I entered into 2 cake competition categories but ended up only finishing one (in the hotel the night before).  Yes, I could have finished them earlier. And yes, I have excuses galore as to why I couldn’t get it done in time.  (Halloween etc)  But at that point if I had entered my second piece I wouldn’t have been happy once I placed it down on the table.  The standard at the show this year was incredible!!  People had obviously been working on their pieces for months before.         So, this was the first time I competed there and I won a Gold! ...

"Bread" Chocolate Cake

I was the lucky girl that got this cake as a present from Av and Brian, I was stunned at the amazing level of detail in this cake, literally jaw dropping at how realistic it was, so much so that little Otis was picking off the pumpkin seeds!! You have such an awesome talent – Thank you!

‘As a person who has worked in the arts for more than 50 years I think I know when I see outstanding creative achievement. Corinna’s work is second to none, her attention to detail magnificent and her surprise creations for my event were a talking point amongst a host of people attending from across the country and those visiting from the UK & US. ’
