Fabulous Mermaid Class with Zoe's Fancy Cakes
I just had to write a blog post about the amazing day I spent with Zoe Hopkinson from Zoe's Fancy Cakes (zoesfancycakes.co.uk).
I travelled up to Leeds for a one day workshop with Zoe to learn how to make this beautiful mermaid. It was great to be learning first-hand from such an incredibly talented cake designer. Zoe is exceptional at modelling characters out of edible gumpaste and is well known for her unique bride and groom cake toppers.
I would normally model cake toppers from gumpaste, but this beauty is made from a different kind of modelling paste called Laped. It allows you to really sculpt and mould your shape and permits you to create much more free-flowing forms.
I absolutely loved creating this mesmerising character and I can't wait to make more!
