With Claire St Quinton

Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

In this weeks tutorial learn how to apply accents of gold using different methods on to a natural coloured buttercream cake creating a beautiful but slightly wild and ornate celebration cake. In the first lesson Claire will guide you on how to stack and seal a cake using a smooth buttercream to help create nice clean edges to prep for adding the decorative layers. The lessons follow on step by step showing you how to create a stencil effect, how to apply edible gold leaf carefully, how to delicately pipe elegant trailing leaves, dots and frills with buttercream and finally how to add a bas-relief effect using cut out and moulded sugar flowers arranged into a beautiful design. For more great ideas on how to pipe or decorate using buttercream then check out our other tutorials below.
