Let Paul show you how to recreate his stunning silver creation. The Silver Elegance Cake is a beauty to behold, and can also feed plenty of mouths.
This big feeder is perfect for special events that need a cake with wow factor. There are so many ways you could adapt this design, and Paul looks at a few ideas later in the tutorial.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to work with complex moulds, create stunning roses from flower paste, make realistic leaves from scratch, create lovely textures with edible paints, cover cakes in various styles and much more! This cake is ideal for a pro cake designer or an intermediate looking for a new challenge.

We'd love to see your take on the Silver Elegance Cake - so make sure you share your photos with us on our Facebook page.
