CakeJournals May favourites

Here are the favourites of May…

New letter cutters? I have been looking a lot at the Groovy Clikstix letter cutters from Windsor Tooling Company. These fun letter cutters comes with an ejector on the back for a quick and easy release. I love that there is an ejector. Because I often use a small needle to get my letters out from my Tappit cutters.

If you too love the groovy letters? Then here are three stores where you can get the Clikstix cutters from: UK,US & AU

How get a deep red or black rolled fondant:

Crystal colors

Normally I buy my red and black fondant pre colored. Because it is really hard getting a nice deep color. When doing it yourself. So when I found a great tip on how to mix both powder and gel colors. I had to try it out. It really works. I start with the powder and then I add the gel paste color. The fondant will not get too wet and soft when coloring it this way. You can see the deep red fondant on my Valentine cookies.

When I make red and black fondant I like to use Crystal Colors: Poinsetta and Charcoal, together with AmeriColors: Super red and super black gel colors.

Happy Caking!
