Fondant on its own generally has a matte appearance. As a baker or decorator, there are several techniques you can use to make your fondant decorations and fondant-covered cakes shiny. However the level of shine varies depending on the technique, so the best one to use may depend on the kind of job you are doing and what you intend to achieve.
Our esteemed Bakers and cake lovers, Thank God It's Friday! I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Like I've always said, it is my pleasure to bring up ideas and programmes that can add value to our lives. If you are not a baker, you are a consumer! I mentioned in the 1st segment this programme was born out of the need for clients to have an array of cake ideas to select from. Also bakers can have more ideas to present to clients.
Please Note that all selected pictures were made by Naija Bakers and credit will be given to the sources as foot notes.
Enjoy the views and grab new ideas!!
Dewdrops Finishing school in Abuja enters the 3rd day today and it has so far been packed with lots of knowledge and fun. The school witnessed a large turn-out of bakers who want to upgrade their knowledge in sugar art
The CEO of Dewdrops Catering Services, Mrs Ezinne Okonkwo had this to say on the first day of the school:
I am such a nosy girl I am in this habit of peeping into bakers' ovens...no, their collections...and guess what? i always find something interesting!
Today I peeped and saw my amazing lady as always, Kitchen Pastries and her cakes. I couldn't help but show them here.
Accountant by day and baker by night, this amazing lady gives it to the people of Houston Texas freshly pressed! This is what I call multi-tasking. I just imagine how busy her whole 24 hrs could be some times.
See some amazing creations from this oven. This is Onome's Cakes Live from Houston Texas, USA. Naija cake lovers around there please take note!
Lots of cake designs have have been introduced over time but this concept has always kept cake critics and admirers on their open mouths. This effect on decorated cake is called "Geode Effect"
Geodes are a variable phenomenon and, therefore, many theories exists to explain how they are created. The term geode is derived from the Greek word Geoides which means "earthlike."
A geode is a sphere shaped rock which contains a hollow cavity lined with crystals.
