Policeman tutorial by Kevin Marshall

Former Police officer Kevin Marshall was CakeFlix Cake of the Year Winner for 2022. One of the prize options was to film a tutorial with Paul, but Kevin needed little help or guidance and was very comfortable filming on his own from the very start. When thinking of a design, as a former Police officer the design came straight to him, which you can see in this tutorial.

In this tutorial you will learn how to:

  • Carve and ganache a cake
  • Make a police uniform from sugarpaste
  • Sculpt a face
  • Paint using dusts
  • and much, much more!
