The cake nerds

I have through a scandinavian cake community meet many liked-minded cake friends that also share my passion for cakes and cake decorations. We started two years back a group called “The cake nerds”. We meet, eat some cake and talk our ears off. Yesterday it was my turn to host the cake nerd party lol! We were only five, but we sounded like ten at least. I had a small cake spare in the freezer that only needed to be decorated. I also made some cupcakes with poured fondant to go along with the cake. Often we sit and make cake decorations while we talk and eat cake. We had a great time together and I am looking forward to meet my friends again.

Happy Caking!



  1. Thanks Louise for sharing all the information. i am at your website all the time and keep coming back every week for the latest information. It’s very kind and generious of u to share everything that u know about cake decorating….. God Bless

  2. nat: My own theory is that it is the recipe & if the batter is overbeaten. I get best results with a thick creamy batter and not one that looks like it curdles. You can try to add just 1 tbsp or 2 flour to the mixture. Sometimes that can help without drying out the cupcake.

    Let me know if it works 🙂


  3. I love your blog. its full of information. Thank you for sharing. I do have a big problem with vanilla cupcakes. The wrappers open up once the cake cools. U have any idea why this is so and what can be done to prevent this from happening? its so frustrating.

  4. The cakes looks lovely, I wish I could have been there, but I had a date with sir Elton. It was a okay concert but, I missed my cake-nerd-friends

  5. Louise, it is soooo cool to have like minded people gathering together to share a similar passion. I wish I can find someone here too.
