1. Stacking and Carving

Molly starts us off by layering the cake into five layers giving us lots of yummy ganache between each layer. She then cuts out a section for the open pie and adds a thin layer of ganache in preparation for cover the entire cake.

2. Covering the cake

In this lesson, Molly covers the cake in one large piece of sugarpaste which she colours using a lovely rainbow dust pro gel. Shen then adds the crust around the edge and generally make the cake feel more like a pie rather than a perfectly round cake.

3. Airbrushing

This is where it really starts to come to life and we struggle to see it as a cake with its realistic textures and colours. You can almost smell the gravy.
