Now, it may not end up looking anything like this but I'd like to have a go! I can do very basic piping and cover a cake with sugarpaste but I'm not in the same league as some of you, I've seen your creations and I'm in awe!
I've bought some fire vehicles to go on top of the cake, I need to change the shape from a rectangle to a square because it'll be too big otherwise.
Please could you give me some tips on creating the flames and what to ue to actually cover the cake with. If sugarpaste, then what colour?
Oh and finally, my cake tin is 20cm/7.5 " square, can you recommend a good sponge recipe (plain or choc) that won't dry out.
