Hello! I’ve been a bit M.I.A lately, sorry! Today I’m playing a bit of catch up. So today is all about amazing Hot Air Balloons!
The Hot Air Balloons were created for the Cake Masters display at Cake International. The Balloons will be on display at the London show on the 16th and 17th of April 2016.
The group of 9 sugar artists was put together by Rosie the Editor of Cake Masters Magazine (facebook/website). We were each given free reign to create our very own Hot Air Balloon, using products from Renshaw, Rainbow Dust and Dummies Direct.
It is such an honour to be asked to create for such an amazing magazine and work with a group of highly talented cake artists from around the UK. I love that each of us had such a different design stemming from a single theme. Being allowed to create a design based on my own style of cake design is a brilliant feeling and I had so much fun creating mine, and I hope you can see that in my bright and colourful balloon. (Did you spot the y-fronts? haha)
We’ve all created a mini tutorial showing you how to create one of the techniques used on our balloons. From modelling a character to piping and creating wafer paper fabric, there’s plenty of reasons to pick up the March issue of Cake Masters Magazine.

My balloon was created to be gravity defying, I use a mixture of MDF, copper piping, and threaded rods to make it float.
