3. Start lining the marshmallows (sticky side facing up) on the outer edge of the cupcake first
4. For the inner layer, place the marshmallow between 2 marshmallows of the outer layer
5. Sprinkle glitter or edible beads on top

Time to take a selfie with a cake?

Thank you once again everyone for all the lovely wishes and messages! The Bakealogue is officially ‘One’ now and so it’s time to get back to the drawing board. Today, I have for you the Zebra Cake. This is more or less a creative version of the ‘marble cake’ so if you are bored of using the same ol’ recipe each time, then you should give this a go! The key to making the perfect pattern are the following 3 tips:

1. It’s absolutely crucial you have the same sized bowls and ladle/spoon when it comes to dividing and pouring the batter.

2. Add the two batters without any long delays in between, otherwise you’ll have too much of gaps. I had to pause in between to take pics, so you can see how that effected the pattern slightly.

3. I would also not recommend you to use small cake tins for this recipe as it will get too crowded then. I always use a 9″ cake tin for this cake which works perfectly.

Have included step-by-step pics to talk you through the process, but forgot to number them. Please follow the pics sideways! Thanks …

I wasn’t planning on doing the next tutorial until later this week, but then thought it would be best to do it today, as it involves the same nozzle as the one used for rosettes, thus making it easier for you to practice two icing designs in one go! So today i’ve worked on my fav icing technique called the ‘Classic Swirl’ .. the concept is pretty much the same as the rosette, only this time you are moving in the opposite direction …. sounds complicated in words, but once you follow the step-by-step tutorial you’ll pick it up in a breeze! Just remember not to be disappointed if you don’t get it right in the first go … just make lots of cupcakes and practice as much as you can! :). Just click on the image to go straight to the tutorial! Happy Icing! 🙂

Back to the basics … it’s tutorial time! :)

Standard

I have been meaning to do a tutorial on icing forever .. so thought I’d make the most of this weekend and get my husband to take all the pics while I can concentrate on the icing! So to kick-off this tutorial I have chosen rosettes as I had a lot of requests come in for it eversince I did the rosette cake for my friends birthday. Well, you have to wait no further, coz here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to create rosettes using buttercream frosting. So make sure you practice,practice,practice as we’ll move on to another design next week! Until then, hope these yellow rosettes were successful in sending some positive energy your way … have a great weekend everyone!

Who wants to stay indoors when the weather is this awesome in Dubai! So I thought why not have today’s tutorial out in a garden? Well, almost anyway … I’ve created a ‘garden theme’ for today’s cake tutorial where the main focus will be on 3 things .. rolling out fondant on a cake, fondant butterflies, and fondant flowers! So grab your sun screen and shades, and lets head out to the Bake-a-logue garden 🙂 …. Click Here to view the tutorial
