The stars are aligned… the sun is out, it’s #WorldGinDay and #BestFriendsDay!

D-Day 80

We thank all those that fought for our future and gave the ultimate sacrifice. 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.

We're often envious of#sugarcraftcraft skills of others and it's easy to forget how far we've come on our own cake journeys. L#NationalCreativityDayationalCreativityDay by cheering on our own wins, no matter how small.

Share a 'then' and 'now' photo, be it weeks, months or years apart and see how far you've come. This is one of ours, seven years apart - the modelling skills might not have improved much but it only takes a#mycraftismyart #ThrowbackThursdayf#sugar🙌#cakeyCraftIsMyArt #ThrowbackThursday #Sugar #Cake

#WowWednesday and we’re highlighting how much you can learn and be inspired by our shows and competitions.

BSG member Julia Fenton decided to have a go a recreating two pieces this month that she’d spied at Sugarcraft North’s North of England Cake & Decorating Show – Bertie B caught her eye on the Castleford & Leeds Branch project table and Sue Summers ran a mini workshop making an Old English Sheepdog.

For more Northern inspiration check out all the pieces from the show www.sugarcraftnorth.co.uk/show or even better #JoinUs for a year of learning and sharing all things sugar www.bsguk.org/shop

Its #NationalBurgerDay and who wouldnt want to tuck into a burger that looks as good as this beauty? Made by BSG member Lisa Courtney-Rigby a few years back its got our taste buds tingling especially as its all cake and awesome #SugarcraftSkills. 

Our #TuesdayTips for making hyper realistic cakes is think about texture - how can you recreate what nature does so well? You dont need fancy molds, sometimes scrunched up foil works just as well. Think about your colours - build up depth and colour slowly using dusts or paint bit by bit, dont be afraid to mix to get the right shade. Practice makes perfect! 

Wed love to see your realistic food makes - share below! #MyCraftIsMyArt #Sugarcraft #Sugar #Cake

We hope all our UK based @followers have enjoyed the Bank Holiday so far☀️☔🌈  

Its #NationalGrapeDay and as we contemplate our favourite ways to consume them – au natural, dried or pressed?! And can cotton candy grapes really be classed as one of our five a day when they taste of fairgrounds?! We’ve also looked back through The Sugarcraft Lounge archives for some more sweet #MondayMotivation and these grape inspired pieces caught our eye…
