Wednesday, September 20, 2017 is our next guild meeting.
September is all about Royal Icing. Pipers rejoice! Renshaw has ready to use RI and have generously sponsored this meeting so we have some to try. There is also a Cornelli Lace tutorial that is perfect for October cakes from CCDG member Lynne Barone, Sweet Lady Cakes. We also have a couple of treats to give away to paid members only.
Renshaw White Royal Icing is a ready to use paste that is ideal for creating intricate shapes & flowers.
It is perfect for covering, piping, detailed work and run outs on both cakes and biscuits.
Fine writing and decorations can be achieved by using a number 1 or 2 nozzle.
Made in the United Kingdom. Suitable for vegetarians.
Remove the lid and stir well with a spoon before use to knock out any air bubbles in the product.
Replace the lid immediately to prevent the product from drying out.
HINTS & TIPS:
- Can be adapted for different techniques
- Try adding a little icing sugar for a firmer finish
- Add water or glycerine as necessary for a thinner consistency
- Can be coloured using a little paste colour
I have plenty of parchment paper for making icing cones (time for a refresher in making them anyone?) and small piping tips. Bring something flat to work on. A cake dummy covered in fondant, a practice board, flat cookies, some rolled out fondant or gum paste, iced cupcakes- whatever you like. Also, if there is interest I will give a short lesson on Brush Embroidery for cakes and cookies.
The second part of the meeting will be set aside for us to work on whatever sugar flowers or figures that we have on the go or want to start. So bring your stuff!
Also from Chrissie our illustrious leader here is a note about 2018 membership.
I’m available to help including the basics if that’s what you need. Please don’t skip the meeting because you think we know more than you do. It’s how you learn and how we learn. And I know you have something to teach us!
Bring show and tell, questions, whatever you like.
Got something to demo? We love you. Go for it.
If you are not yet a member, you may attend for $5.00
