Paisley Henna Design Cake Tutorial…


Ok, so, its 01:12 GMT and I am absolutely shattered after making one huge momma of a cake! Alright, alright, so it wasn’t really THAT big! It was the cake board which was big. 20 inches by 14 inches to be exact. But who cares about the cake board when you’re making a new cake design for the first time hey? I forgot to take a picture before placing the buttercream on it to place the green cake on lol!


I had a mighty task of baking 2 cakes for a henna party for today. The only element which made it a difficult task was that I needed to decorate it in henna decor. Sheeesh! I used to love adorning my hands with the dark brown sludgy mud for it to then leave a beautiful dark orange to brown stain which would last for up to a week if the hands were looked after well. But that was over 10 years ago! Since then I have had very little time to myself let alone sit for a few hours to be decorating my hands… you know with finishing my degree, deciding that it wasn’t the career I really wanted so changed career plans, getting married, having kids, finishing my PGCE, and then teaching myself to decorate cakes in between… I’m pretty sure trying to fit in henna art would’ve pushed me over the edge as I just didn’t enjoy it like I used to.

ANYWAYS – I seriously need to remind myself not to waffle too much as I might just end up telling my whole life story haha! As I was saying… I sat down with my brand new Paisley Wilton Cake Pans, Cake Stuff Couture Icing, and a bunch of nerves to set me off!

I thought I would document the whole process so you could see how I made this cake and maybe try and attempt it yourself so I can see your wonderful creations too!

Here is the finished product. Once I have finished cutting and cropping and all the other bits and bobs that need doing to all the pictures I will upload the steps asap!


Anyways, gotta go catch some sleep before bubba wakes up!

Helloooooo everyone!!!
It’s been a veryyyyy long time since I had initially planned to start a blog and now I have finally started on my journey… Woohooo!!!
First things first, thank you for coming to my page and for your support. I could not have come this far without you all, not forgetting the Almighty of course 😉
I hope to start making and creating new cakes and cupcake creations which will wow you all and also to hopefully give you an opportunity to try things out at home!
My cake venture started when I was very young as I have always enjoyed uh hummmm eating cake *covers face* and making cake too! I had never really thought about decorating them until I got married and my sister in laws kept telling me to learn. So off I went, searched high and low, and to my delight I found hundreds of tutorials on YouTube. It was just amazing the amount of techniques I learnt from that one site alone! However, I did find that some things just weren’t covered on YouTube or even in books, and some cake makers just weren’t willing to give me the lowdown on how to do specific things such as how to avoid elephant skin and ripping when covering a cake! After asking many people and extensive experimenting I finally found something that works for me! (I will be doing a blog post post on this soon!)
That’s when I decided to make my own page to help others as well as try out new things!
After learning these new skills that’s when I started to sell to the public and you can view my personal Facebook page here

Soooooo… I hope you enjoy my page as much as I will enjoy blogging, experimenting, caking, eating, and just getting dirty with all the mess!!

Much Cakey Love
