Great Gatsby Cake and Big Flower Tutorial

By November 3, 2017 Cakes and More, Tutorials

Hello everybody!!

I still don’t know the first person who after having seen the Great Gatsby movie was not impressed with the style that characterized the 20’s.

Apart from the majestic Art Deco style that was born with the 20’s, what most caught my attention was the fashion, where colors like black and gold, long pearl necklaces and large flowers were the distinctive elements of the glamour that predominated at the time, that are also perfect details to be reflected in a cake.

When I had the opportunity to make a Great Gatsby cake for a birthday party, these details were basic for this wonderful theme, also I took the time to do an easy tutorial about how to make a big flower, which can be used in any occasion to enhance your cake with an exquisite and elegant touch..but before the tutorial some details about this cake:

  • It was a two tier 6″ and 8″ cake, both of them vanilla cake with Dulce de Leche filling and buttercream icing.
  • The cake was covered and decorated with homemade marshmallows fondant except for the black fondant which was prefabricated.
  • For the golden details I used homemade marshmallows fondant colored first in yellow and then painted gold with this spray.
  • To make the number 30 cake topper I used this cookie cutter set.
  • To make the borders and the necklace I used this silicone mold (one of my favorites and most used).

                                                                        BIG FLOWER TUTORIAL

  • Place the flowers in a flower foam and using a ball tool smooth the edges to achieve a natural look of the petals.

  • Stick the flowers to each other with water from largest to smallest order and let it dry on a flower shaping bowl or on any curved surface , for the center of the flower make a little fondant ball, flatten it and stick it to the center of the flower.

Here is a close-up of this extremely beautiful flower placed on the cake:

The cake was a great success and I guess that it was largely because of the elegant big flower detail in the decoration..please do this flower, you will see that it is very easy to make and the result is simply beautiful!!

Thanks for reading me, see you next time!!

Because Cakes speak all Languages!!

By October 28, 2017 Cakes and More

Hello everybody!!

When I started this blog I did it with the intention of sharing with you fun and easy ideas about how to decorate cakes and something that I had very clear is that I wanted the content to come not only in English, but also in Spanish, because this is my first language and also because of the number of Spanish-speaking friends and family that I have.

When someone visited the blog they could see the same post repeated in English and Spanish and with this I managed to cover both languages, but something happened..when it came to take a look at the blog in general, people who do not speak Spanish thought that the blog was repeated for some technical issue and exactly the same happened with Spanish readers.

In short, because the blog had the repeated posts this was creating confusion in both languages when the intention was the opposite..this is why I decided to make a small change in the blog, something very easy to use and really versatile.

When you visit the blog, around the middle of the sidebar you will be able to find this button:This little button allows you to automatically translate the content into any language, therefore not only can it be translated into Spanish but also to the language that is of the reader’s preference.

With this small change, we guarantee a more concise and dynamic content, and also cover a wider population of readers and always with the intention of bringing useful, easy and fun information.

Once again, thank you very much for reading me..I promise a cake related post next time, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to inform you about the changes we are making to make your visits to the blog a more pleasant experience Because Cakes speak all Languages..see you next time!!

Black Buttercream Halloween Cake

By October 20, 2017 Cakes and More, Tutorials

Hello Everybody!!

As is usual at this time everyone is getting ready for Halloween so to keep up the mood I want to share with you this Black Buttercream Halloween Cake.

As I’ve told you on previous occasions I always make my own fondant and buttercream but when it comes to colors like red, brown or black I prefer to buy them prefabricated because it is difficult for me to achieve these colors, but in this occasion I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and I decided to take the risk of making my own black buttercream.

I have to admit that at first I felt a little doubtful but I made the attempt  anyway and the truth is that it was totally worth it..this frosting turned out to be easier than I thought and the best of all is that the taste is delicious, so of course I will share the recipe but before some details about this cake:

  • It was a 6″ round cake, to make this cake I prepared a vanilla batter then I divided it into two equal parts and on one of them I added a few drops of orange food coloring to get a cake with two tones inside.
  • It was filled and frosted with black buttercream, recipe below.
  • For the decoration I used these sugar pumpkins and these sprinkles.

Here you have a picture of the cake already cut so you can see how beautiful it looks inside and below you can find the recipe of the black buttercream frosting:

                                                                       BLACK BUTTERCREAM RECIPE








-Beat the butter for two minutes until smooth, add vanilla.

-Add the sugar one cup at a time, if you notice that the consistency is very thick add a splash of milk or cream or if you see the consistency is very loose add more sugar.

-Add the cocoa and when it’s fully mixed add 1/2 spoonful of black coloring, you will notice that the frosting will turn dark gray then add another 1/2 spoonful of black coloring..the trick to achieve a good dark black buttercream is to let it rest overnight, in my case I wanted the buttercream to look super black so I added another 1/2 spoonful of black coloring.

-This buttercream has a delicious chocolate flavor, the food coloring does not change the flavor or the texture, this amount is enough to fill and decorate a 6″ three layer cake, if you cake is bigger than that you can double or triple the amount.

Please make this buttercream, if you are a chocolate lover like me you will love it..don’t forget that the most important thing is to let it rest overnight and another important suggestion, do not use white clothes because it is sure that you are going to get dirty!!! LOL

Thank you so much for reading me, see you next time!!

Pastel de Halloween con Glaseado Negro

By October 20, 2017 Pasteles y Mas, Tutoriales (Spanish)

Hola a todos!!

Como es costumbre en esta epoca todo el mundo se esta preparando para el dia de Halloween asi que para mantener el animo quiero compartir con ustedes este Pastel de Halloween con Glaseado Negro.

Como les he comentado en ocasiones anteriores  siempre hago mi propio fondant o glaseado pero cuando se trata de de colores como el rojo, marron o negro prefiero comprarlos prefabricados por lo dificil que se me hace lograr estos colores pero en esta ocasion quize  salir de mi zona de confort y decidi tomar el riesgo de hacer mi propio glaseado negro.

Tengo que admitirles que al principio me sentia un poco dudosa pero de todas formas hice el intento y la verdad es que valio la pena totalmente..este glaseado resulto mas ser facil de lo que pense y lo mejor de todo es que el sabor es delicioso asi que por supuesto aqui les comparto las receta pero antes algunos detalles acerca de este pastel:

  • Este era un pastel de 6″, para hacer este pastel prepare una masa de vainilla luego la dividi en dos partes y a una de ellas le añadi unas cuantas gotas de colorante naranja para asi obtener un pastel de dos colores por dentro.
  • Estaba relleno y cubierto con glaseado o crema de mantequilla (buttercream) de color negro, ver receta mas abajo.
  • Para la decoracion utilize estas calabazas de azucar y estas grageas.

Aqui tienen una foto del pastel cortado para que vean que hermoso se ve por dentro y luego mas abajo podran encontrar la receta para el glaseado negro:










-Batir la mantequilla por dos minutos hasta que tenga consistencia suave, agregar la vainilla.

-Agregar el azucar una taza a la vez, si notas que la consistencia esta muy espesa agrega un chorrito de leche o crema o si por el contrario la consistencia esta muy suelta agrega mas azucar.

-Agrega la cocoa y cuando ya este bien mezclada añade  1/2 cucharada de colorante negro, vas a notar que el glaseado se va a tornar gris oscuro, luego agrega 1/2 cucharada mas de colorante negro..el truco para lograr un glaseado bien negro es dejalo reposar de un dia para otro, en mi caso queria que el glaseado me quedara super negro asi que le agrege 1/2 cucharada mas de colorante negro.

-Este glaseado tiene un delicoso sabor a chocolate,  el colorante no le cambia para nada ni el sabor ni la textura, esta cantidad es sufiente para rellenar  y decorar un pastel de 6″ de tres capas, si tu pastel es mas grande puedes doblar o triplicar la cantidad.

Por favor hagan este glaseado, si como yo ustedes son amantes del chocolate les va a olviden que lo mas importante es dejarlo reposar de un dia para otro y otra sugerencia importante, no utilizen ropa blanca porque es seguro que se van a ensuciar!!! Jajajaja

Muchas gracias por leerme, hasta la proxima!!

Hello Everybody!!

Since the month of October arrives the United States is preparing to celebrate one of its most popular festivities: Halloween!!

Although it is true that this celebration is not to the liking of many, we can not deny that for the majority Halloween means fun..we see as from people, houses to shopping centers disguise themselves with allegorical themes and not to mention how much children enjoy collecting candies and sweet treats.

And talking about sweets and candies if I had to choose the one that most represents this occasion without a doubt, I would have to choose the Candy Corn, called thus not because they have corn flavor but because of their similarity to the colors of the corn kernels.

It is for this reason that today I want to share with you this easy but fun idea for your Halloween desserts, Candy Corn Surprise let’s do this:

  • Bake your cupcakes, to make these cupcakes I prepared a vanilla batter and then added a few drops of orange food coloring also I used Candy Corn  themed baking cups to give them an appearance more in line with the theme but you can use white plain baking cups and they still going to look really good.

  • Hollow the center of your cupcakes, I used a cupcake corer but you can use a knife.
  • Fill with Candy Corn.

  • Frost your cupcakes with white icing or your favorite icing color, to achieve this swirl I used Wilton 1M tip.
  • To finish your decoration add sprinkles, I used this ones and I also put a Candy Corn as a cupcake topper.

And here you have a close-up of the surprise cupcakes, ready to eat:

Well, I hope that after seeing how easy it is to do and how beautiful these cupcakes are you feel encouraged to make them and to enjoy them with your friends and my house they did not last more than 5 minutes!!
