Cakes are all about the taste!! but when giving them as a gift they are also all about the look.  Today there are so many lovely boxes to package cakes and cupcakes but the costs do add up for the more fancy boxes.  We have therefore come up with a simple solution.....these fabulous tags.

These tags have been designed exclusively for us by Sweet Treats - Carlisle and they will liven up any plain cake box....we have a variety of colours and a mix of designs so people will never tire of seeing your fabulously packaged cupcakes.

Plunger Cutters

Well we have another great little product for you that is so simple but really really useful.

When these plunger cutters first arrived I really wasn't sure whether I would use them as I thought that there are so many other ways I could cut out circles.  BUT I use them all of the time.  They are so much quicker that using, for example, a nozzle to cut out circles of sugarpaste.  The small one is my favourite but they are all really useful.

Today I have used them for creating polka dots on a bow I am making and also for making eyes for my novelty cupcakes. 

There is also a set of square cutters - these are equally as useful because I have spent many an hour running around trying to find something square to cut around...because my free hand cutting skills don't ever seem to look the same from one cut out to another!!

So, if you're looking for some extra bits for your cake cupboard then take a look at will wonder how you ever got by without them.

Blossom Sugar Art Moulds

Well it's been a busy few months as I've been super busy sourcing new products and trying to get our new website up and running - it will be launching now in May 2012.
I have found some fantastic new products and wanted to highlight some here although I promise to now come on more often and describe the products in more detail so that everyone has a better idea of how to use them.
Our first new products are the fabulous Blossom Sugar Art Moulds.  When I first saw these a couple of years ago I wasn't sure BUT and it's a big but I have now used them and they are simply FABULOUS.  So so simple to use and so very effective. 
You simply roll out a piece of paste (slightly easier if it's flower/gum paste or sugarpaste with a bit of cmc in it to make it a bit stronger), cut it out with the cutter and then pop the cut out shape on to the mould.  Then you simple close the mould, press and release.  That's it!! You end up with a beautiful flower in less than 10 seconds.  Ideal if you have a lot of cakes to decorate.  A great investment and one that I can guarantee that you will love.
There are a  number of moulds in the range including the blossom, butterfly and petunia.  We will be adding more to the range though because I simple adore them and if nothing else I want to add to my own collection.

Have you used these moulds? If you have let me know what you think....and if you haven't then you really must give them a go :o)
