With Claire St Quinton

Difficulty Medium

Broken Video?

Join Claire to find out how she created this charming little potting shed cake, a true inspiration for a spring summer birthday celebration or for a keen Gardner who just loves to pot around the garden growing plants. In this lovely tutorial you will be guided on how to paint a garden scene using sponging techniques with a variety of coloured edible paints, how to carve and ganache a cake into shape, how to make and add wooden texture panels using sugarpaste and finally how to create all the lovely decorative details such as a cedar shingle tiled roof, flower pots, a personalised script message, paved path and so much more. If you loved this video and want to learn more then check out our other tutorials below.
