Recently, I created a tutorial for my Industrial Steampunk Chic cake (designed originally for the Steam Cakes Collaboration) that appeared in the October issue of Cake Masters Magazine, UK.
The original cake featured an orchid coloured anemone flower in the design, sitting between the two tiers, but the flower was not included in the print tutorial since it would have added at least 28 more steps to an already lengthy tutorial. This was communicated to my contact at Cake Masters and passed along to the editors when the tutorial was submitted.
Unfortunately, there was a miscommunication or misunderstanding somewhere along the line when the magazine went to print, so although the printed tutorial did not have those steps included, there was promotional material created and posted that indicated the flower was part of that tutorial in the print issue. Of course, a few people were a bit disappointed to find out it was not in the magazine.
As a happy solution, I created a free tutorial that I posted on my Facebook page, to share with Cake Masters, their readers, and anyone else that was hoping it was part of the tutorial. I am also adding it permanently here to my blog so it will be easier to find later on for those looking! See below for the step-by-steps details and pics…but first…
GREAT NEWS: A few people sent me messages when they magazine first came out, asking if the full Steampunk Chic Cake tutorial would be available to download in PDF file format and I’m happy to say that it is finally now available for sale in my Facebook SHOP.
