This December/January 2017-18 publication is the 143rd issue of Cakes & Sugarcraft, an inspirational and informative magazine for anyone who enjoys making and decorating cakes.
This issue is brimming with festive fun. For beginners we have some Scandi-style folksy cupcakes in a classic red and white palette. Airbrushing fans will have fun creating a snowy sky for the jumping gingerbread cake. If you’re looking for modelling projects there are three little mice who would look great on top of a Christmas cake or, if you’re after something a little more challenging, give the gravity-defying cover cake a go.
For other occasions, try your hand at a space-themed birthday cake complete with matching blast off biscuits or experiment with cake painting and wafer paper to create a beautiful wedding cake project. And, if you’re worried you won’t be able to go four years without Big Ben, why not bring him to life in your own home for a New Year spectacle sure to wow your guests?
Winter can be difficult for some and it’s important we all take care of our physical and mental wellbeing. Read our special feature to find out how baking can help in managing mental health problems and have a go at making a black dog rainbow cake in aid of Mind.
Cakes & Sugarcraft is published six times a year in January, March, May, July, September and November. Find out more about the magazine at www.cakesandsugarcraft.com.
