Can you feel the wind beneath your wings? Paul can. In this tutorial he introduces us to his High Flying Friend Cake complete with adorable little dogs.
This is a great celebration cake that'll bring a smile to anyone's face - particularly animal lovers and flying enthusiasts. This is a wonderfully simple yet delicious cake using straight-forward techniques to bring it all together, using chocolate mud cake and scrumptious chocolate ganache. This tutorial is complete with templates for making the glider.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to carve a cake into a mountain, work with ganache, cover awkward shapes, work with edible paint to create realistic textures, intermediate modelling work, create a glider from sugarpaste and so much more.

We'd love to see your take on the High Flying Friend - so make sure you share your snaps with us on our Facebook page.
