Insert the posy pick into the cake. It is up to you where you want to put the flower. You put your arranged flower in posy, so the wire don't touch the cake which can make wire rusty. And of course you don't want eat cake with rusty thing in it...;)

Roasted Corned Beef

Last weekend , I made this roasted corned beef. We love this kind of roast. It is easy and taste very nice. This recipe is from Australian Womens Weekly. Here is the recipe.


2 tablespoons grainy mustard
3 tablespoons marmalade (orange)
juice of half a lemon
1 clove garlic, crushed
a good grind of pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1.2 kg corned beef
6 cloves

For the salad:
2 boiled eggs, peeled and broken into chunks
175g baby green beans, blanched
500g steamed new potatoes
½ cup whole egg mayonnaise
juice of half a lemon.


Preheat oven to 220°C.

Combine mustard, marmalade, lemon juice, garlic, pepper and olive oil in a small bowl.

Make 6 small slits in the beef. Poke a clove in each. Smother with the marmalade mixture. Place the beef in a baking dish.

Roast for 10 minutes. Drop the temperature to 140°C. Roast for a further 3 hours, basting occasionally. Remove from heat and let rest, covered in foil, for 30 minutes. Serve with salad.

For the salad:
Place eggs, beans and potatoes in a bowl. Mix together mayonnaise and lemon juice and toss through salad.

Cake Decorating Week IV

Making Briar Roses (open rose single and double):

1. Use the rose cutter size 3 and 4 (from 6 set of double side rose cutter) or any rose cutter do you have. Roll out some flower paste, and cut 5 petals (from size 4) and 4 petals from size 3. To make single roses , you only need 5 petals. And to make double roses you need 9 petals.

2. Frill the side of the petal with a frilling stick to soften the edges and make it frill. And with the ball tool, slightly roll the middle of the petal to make it curved. Try to make the petal looks natural.

3. Put 1 petal to the aluminium layered patty pan, and smear little bit glue in one side of the edge. Stick the other petal overlaped to other petal. Do it until all 5 petals finish. Take the 4 smaller petals and stick 1 petal in the middle of 2 petals underneath with glue. Arrange the petals to make open rose.

4. Make yellow royal icing. Put in the piping bag. Cut the tip and drop some yellow icing in the centre.
Cut 4 stamen in half (become 8 pieces). Cut half the stamen in half again (16 pieces). Stick 4 top stamen and 4 middle white wire to icing. You can colour the stamen with brown colour just in the top.

Cake Decorating Course Week III

Making small flowers (Lily of the Valley, forget-me-not, blossom)
1. Blossom and forget-me-not
Using blossom cutter, cut the flower paste and push the centre of the flower gently using ball tool and foam. Cut the stamen in half. Dip the top into flower glue, and insert in the centre . Dry up side down overnight.

2. Lily of the Valley

Do not push to much. Insert the stamen in the centre (don't forget to dip the top to the glue...). Dry up side down overnight. After dry you can arrange the flower.

Cake Decorating Course Week II

Week II (19-4-2008) : Applying almond icing to cake.

This is how to bake a fruit cake. Greased inside tin with butter and use fine bread crumbs to dust instead of flour. Wrapped along the side of pan with 3 sheets of newspaper secure with baking tie or clips. Leave about 5 cms above tin to keep cake level. The tin ready to use.

Unfortunately, I don't have the pic of the almond iced fruit cake :(, I forgot to bring my camera again....., but the methods are the same if you iced with fondant. I used 1 kg of almond icing to cover 8" square/9" round. And brushed the cake with apricot jam before applying almond icing.

Cake Decorating Course Week I

Week 1 (12-4-2008) : Making stars , hearts in wire and plaque.

How to make pastilage: Knead 250 gr of white fondant with 1 teaspoon of gum trag until well combined. To prevent dough stick dust the board with pure icing sugar. Roll out the dough with rolling pin around 0.5 cm thickness, and make the star , heart and plaque shapes with the cutters.
Use gauge wire #18, dip one the end to flower glue and insert to the star carefully. After all wired, put them in the flat surface to dry. Every day turn every shape to the other side for 7 days. And they are ready to use.
