BACK IN TIME • Each month self-taught cake creator Heena Mistry is working on a new project recreating some of our favourite archive CD&S tutorials, to test them and show you how truly easy they are to make. This issue, Heena uses the step by steps from the July 2021 issue to make these incredibly pretty floral hoop cookies which were featured in a book extract, ‘A Year in Cake’ by Peggy Porschen.
PRETTY PASTELS • Use a mixture of buttercream techniques including crumb coating, palette knife painting to make a watercolour effect and piping to create this pastel beauty for any occasion.

Make sure you use a fidget toy that is non-toxic/food safe and has not been used (use a brand new one and clean in boiling water).

SWEET TREATS AND GIFTS • Each month Zoe is going to be sharing with you delicious sweet treats which would be perfect for gifting, favours or even as dessert table fillers - all linked to seasons and events in the year.
