Hello everyone :) It has been a long time since I had new tutorial. My girls are big ”My little pony” fans, especially Pinkie so I decided to make this little Pinkie Pie tutorial. Hope you like my version of Pinkie and enjoy the step by step tutorial. And if you like it please don’t forget to pin it and share it :) Any question please contact me on facebook www.facebook.com/starrydelights (unfortunately I had to disable comments due to the large amount of spam) x
Recently I made a caravan cake and thought I should share the progress shots with you.
The cake started from 10′ square, halved then filled and stacked. I prefer to carve it once it is all filled so the shape doesn’t distort. I printed a profile of the caravan and used this as guide for carving. I made the caravan taller as I wanted to give the customer more cake. It was ganached and covered and while icing was still soft I added all the extra details except for the writing and logos. Hope you like this little step by step pictorial :)
