It had been a very exciting weekend in Penang as it was my first time to teach my students on how to create a sugar paste wedding cake. “Well, this is nothing new to me”, I told myself with laughter. In fact creating sugar paste cakes was the first skill that I picked up when I got into the baking industry, that was more than 15years ago, and it was at the famous Sunflower Baking Shop at that time.
I usually make my own sugar paste and gum paste and seldom buy pre-made sugar paste as it is cheaper and fun to make. Therefore in the class I decided to teach my students from mastering the fundamental basic till the finished product. Well my students in Penang did so well and had mastered the skill and techniques without difficulty, well they spend a whole day with me but I think it is worth it.
Well let me show you what we did during the class and in this session we used a 2 tier dummy cake make out of styrofoam.
