Hello Everyone!

Recently, we were excited to debut our new Simi Flex Form Molds at Ladybug Cake & Candy Supply Store in Southbury, CT http://ladybugcakeandcandy.com/ !  It was awesome to see our new molds in action with so many talented artists and their creative ideas.  You may have seen something like these molds, but we engineered them to be thin, secure without moving, and curve easily for maximum flexibility with our unique design-a rounded top edge.  We had wonderful feedback from all our students about the movement and ease of creating the big sculptures with the Simi Flex Forms! Since then we took them to the Florida Mini Classes and our classes in Jacksonville, FL where all our students put the new molds to the test.  You will find our molds on our Simi Cakes website in the upcoming week!  www.simicakes.com  

At the bottom of the page I’ve included a few pictures from our recent classes and you can see all the pictures on our Simi Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Simi-Cakes-Confections/121435164568456

  Tip of the Week  

This week’s tip of the week comes from Kristin Clark, cake decorator and owner of the brand new cake decorating & supply store, Just Think Cake, located in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.  Just Think Cake offers a wide variety of tools and supplies for every level of cake decorating including Satin Ice Fondants, Sweetex, cake pans, molds, cutters and so much more along with fabulous classes.  Check her out at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Just-Think-Cake/103530546389676 , call her at 850-240-0493or visit the store in person at 2 David Street, Unit J, Ft. Walton Beach, FL 32547.

 Kristin’s Tip…Time Management – Whether baking from your cottage licensed home bakery or from your store front, time management is key. Plan ahead! Create as much ahead of time as possible. This includes gumpaste accents which usually require 3 days minimum to dry, make and tint your icing ahead, tint fondant and start on any supports that your order might require. Plan the order in your head and/or on paper, this will help you get an idea of what can be started ahead of time.  Your cake will turn out much better with planning ahead and you will end up less stressed and enjoy the process if you do so. Good luck and happy caking!

Kristin will be holding her Grand Opening Open House on Tuesday, Feb. 26!  I’ll be there all afternoon and evening doing Isomalt Sculpture demos and check out all the wonderful products at Just Think Cake!  Then come back on Wednesday, Feb 27 for an Introduction to Isomalt Hands-on Class!  See you there!

 

Until Next Time…

Keep Life Sweet,

Sidney
