1. Stacking and carving

In this lesson, Molly prepares the cake and quickly carves a simple shape that is then covered with a thin layer of ganache for covering. Don’t get too hung up on the carved shape being perfect as the more natural the batter.

Molly manages to cover the cake in one large piece of white sugarpaste which keeps things nice and simple. Now it’s time to get rid of the corners using scissors and then it’s stitchy tool time.
