Welcome to my Blog!

I love designing and working with cakes as much as I love teaching. As for a
blogger, Im not sure yet..lol We can only hope for the best.. I've been
decorating and teaching for awhile now. I've been posting tutorials in
You Tube and people love them. Cake Friends have been asking for
more tutorials on gumpaste so now I have 2 DVD's for sale on my website  http://www.designmeacake.com/

The first one I did was "How to make a Stargazer Lily".
A flower easy enough for beginners but with details that will attract the more advanced. The second one is "How to Make Poinsettias"But in this blog I will start by talking about the tools I used on this DVD.
 
The tools I used are easy to find. I added some of them
 in my webstore for those who want a one stop shop in the internet. Plus I decided to add in the things I love the most. I will keep adding more of them over time.

For those who are asking about the materials I used to make the Stargazer Lily, here is a photo with the basic things you might use.




 
  •  wire
  • wire cutters
  • pliers
  • Thick and Thin Foam
  • Ball Tool
  • Needle Tool
  • Florist Tape
  • Petal Dust
  • Cutter
  • Veiner



As for the veiner, even though I teach how to
 use the Wilton one, I do prefer the
Stargazer Lily Veiner. This veiner has beautiful
details that make the flower look incredible.





Another thing I love the most is the Multi Stamen Mold.
Even though I teach how to do the stamens and the center
without it, the mold makes it so easy that once you use it,
you are hooked!

This flower makes a statement, since it's so bold and beautiful.Once you learn to make it, you will absolutely fall in love with it. I will  post some photos of cakes made with the Stargazer in
my next blog, so you can have more ideas on how to use this flower on your cakes.
Remember, you can email me to edna@designmeacake.com or visit my website http://www.designmeacake.com/
In there you will find plenty of Tutorials about cake decorating. 
As for now..this is my first blog!..I will add more to it so don't forget to subscribe.
See you around!

Edna :)

  2. I am so happy you started your own blog! It will be much easier to keep up with your latest DVD releases and other news here than on CC. Easy to get lost in the shuffle at CC with all the threads being posted 24/7. :)

  11. Hi Edna i am one of your "student" in your video tutorials.lately i started thinking of working with fondant flowers and butterflies so i decided to look tutorials from you in you tube,i have noticed you never dusted flour while you worked with them???? what is the secret?

  12. It really depends on what you are doing. SOmetimes you can do that. But you have to be more careful as the gumpaste is more delicate/
