Custom sprinkle medleys now available at kiwicakes



 Three months ago I started on the lengthy process to offer Custom sprinkle medleys at Kiwicakes. AND NOW THE SERVICE IS HERE




It’s been a lot of work, the ingredients document was like writing a small novel. And I am so thankful for the wonderful Hayley who created the awesome custom medley photos (I don’t envy her laying all of those sprinkles out in straight lines).


We’ve sourced extra wonderful sprinkles from around the world, to extend our already awesome sprinkle selection. And a complete overhaul of our kitchen shelves was needed to create space, for each colour.


Some wonderful Kiwicakers agreed to be my custom medley testers, so I could try to iron out any wrinkles in the service, their medleys have been mixed and delivered.



I can’t wait to get mixing for you! Click herehttp://www.kiwicakes.co.nz/711-sprinkle-medleys to find out more about the service 

Pretty unicorn cookies



 This lovely step by step tutorial comes to us from Lisa at The Whole Cake and Caboodle 


Using a unicorn cutter from Kiwicakes. Lisa baked sugar cookies, to which she added fondant horns, shaped by hand. Painted with Rolkem Super Gold, mixed with a little rose spirit to form a paint 



Using the cookie cutter. Cut out fondant icing unicorn, then remove the horn and mane using a knife.



Glue the fondant to the cookie using  edible sugar glue and mark the ear and nose hole with a veining tool. The line for the mouth is cut with a knife.


These photos show the steps to pipe the mane. They are random squiggles of royal icing (which sets hard allowing cookies to be bagged) using Wilton tip #16


The eye can be drawn on with an edible marker pen, or painted with a brush and edible black paint.

A fun cake by Gracie age 9


I just had to share with you, this fun cake, made by budding cake decorator Gracie age 9. She's been a cake decorating addict for years now and her mum Jenny sent through these photos of Gracie buttercreaming and making her very own cake for her teacher "Miss T"


Gracie used the Kiwicakes lemon & poppyseed cake mix. It's super tasty and has chunks of freeze dried lemon in it.



She used a metal scraper to get it nice and smooth 




Gracie used Bakels truffle for her drip


The sprinkle medley is Kaleidoscope


You can find the Rainbow Zebra cake board Gracie used here


A wonderful selection of Lollipops from the Kiwicakes range And the name "Miss T" was cut from yellow fondant icing using FMM alphabet Tappits 


I think Gracie at just 9 years of age did an amazing job. I cannot wait to see her cakes when she is an adult. I think we may have a star on our hands.
