Relatively new to sculpting cakes? Then check out this tutorial by Chris Aranda! He starts by taking just a few layers of vanilla cake and some cream cheese frosting to build his base for a simple hand carved design. Crumb coated with ganache, which is made extra smooth using a hair dryer and our Sugar Smoothers, he then covers the cake with black fondant. Here he provides a great opportunity to explore hand sculpting with our Sugar Shapers because the pillow-like shape design doesn't need to be perfect! He finishes his detail work with a stitching wheel, and includes hand cut and silicone formed fondant that is painted with edible gold highlighter. I hope you grab your Artist's Brushes and follow along!
We are so excited to have Chris onboard as a Sugarworks Brand Ambassador. Please check out some of his other work online:
