Killer Cakes – Issue 68

Posted on Jun 17 2013


How would you like to see this Bollywood cake from inception to completion? bollywoodIn Cake Central’s article “Sketch to Cake: Kathy Zyduck’s Bollywood Cake” posted by Andi Satterlund, you can do just that.

Since Bollywood is a theme in my friend Marcy Singer’s latest book, Cross Stitch Before Dying, I’d be remiss if I didn’t give her a shout-out here. In that book, Marcy’s mom–costume designer Beverly Singer–enlists Marcy’s help (and that of some of Tallulah Falls’ finest stitchers) in working on the wardrobe for a Bollywood-inspired film.

After you’ve learned how to create your own Bollywood cake, you might feel like a princess. So, it would be only fitting that you’d follow Carrie Lynn Fields’ Royal
Icing Tiara Tutorial to make yourself a crown. You’re given a list of supplies and the complete seven steps to creating a beautiful tiara. Carrie Lynn even instructs you on mending a broken tiara.

Have you ever made a Bollywood cake? How about a royal icing or chocolate crown? How did it turn out?

    I actually make Royal Icing pretty regularly. I use it to make decorated cookies and to make decorations for cupcakes, usually.

    I’ve even tried RI tiaras once for my littlest daughter’s birthday cupcakes. They didn’t go very well, though. I’d broken them all before I even got them peeled off the parchment paper.
