Mother’s Day Food Styling

You may be thinking about doing a bit of home-baking and making it look a little bit special for Mother’s Day and I have a useful link or two to pass on to you.

The first link comes from goodlife{eats} and demonstrates how to make the two-tone icing as I have done in the pictures here.

I came across this link via Caroline & Kristen, the team behind Irish Food Blogger’s Association in a ‘What we’re reading’  section rounding up links to what’s new in the food world and be sure to check that out at

Any aspiring food stylists or bloggers looking for a chance to improve their food styling skills could win yourself a place on a Food Styling Workshop in Germany courtesy of Plate 2 Plate & Bordbia.  Details of this amazing competition – open to all Irish resident food bloggers – are available at but you need to hurry as closing date is 31st March 2011.

If you do plan on trying out the two-tone frosting, a word to the wise, this is not as easy as it looks.  I mucked up two cupcakes and readjusted technique until I got it right.  There is however the joy of sucking the left over butter cream frosting out of the nozzle. Sugar high.
Til next time, Sheila
