Very useful tips

Paddy calmly takes one on a journey on how to use different skills to create a sharp-edged cake without a seeming fuss. Really great video

Sugar icing become oil

Hello, I love your video and teaching style. I hope by watching and doing it at home I will become cakes artist. But I want to question. Usually, I would use homemade base fondant but since I move to hong kong I could not find some of the ingredients in hong kong. So I am not able to make my won fondant at home. So I start using stain icing. Today I made one of fondant cake for my customer. I used the normal chocolate sponge and cover it with icing. But after some time it becomes oily. Please help me what was the reason. Maybe I used corn starch instead of icing sugar.

sharp edges

only make a few cakes, but at last a video that in simple terms shows in such a straight forward way how to get those edges, without too much explanation and fuss, will be giving this a try ! hope there are more videos of Paddy to come
