Here at Cake Decoration and Sugarcraft HQ we love a spring clean, a few resolutions and a bucket list to start the new year... how do you start yours? What's your #CNYR? We spoke to the Cake contributors to find out all about their #CNYR and how they plan to kick off the new year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Karen Keaney: Roses and Bows Cakery

“My #CNYR is to grow my online cake school www.rosesandbowscakery.com. It has already doubled in size over the last twelve months so I’m really looking forward to seeing where it takes me in 2019!”

Karen Keaney:

 

Cassie Brown

“My #CNYR is to focus on growing my business and film lots of YouTube videos, which is a little scary! My aim is to focus on skills and how products can speed things up for us. Also sharing more that is not in my new book ‘The Kew Book of Sugar Flowers’ and staying focused on my two favourite things: airbrushing and flower making. I love my job but am so easily distracted.”

Cassie Brown

 

Tracey Rothwell: Little Cherry Cake Company

“My #CNYR is to grow my YouTube channel of tutorials and vlogs to run alongside my cake orders.so each one is a part time job instead of full time, covered in icing sugar at 2am! I'd also love to do a class with Zoe's Fancy Cakes.”

Tracey Rothwell: Little Cherry Cake Company

 

Rhu Strand

“My #CNYR is to build my online Etsy shop, learn how to use it and stock it with lots of original tutorials, ready-made toppers, bespoke toppers and anything related to making figures.... and most important of all be kind to myself in the process!!!”

Rhu Strand

 

Kerry Vincent

“I am a great believer in the old adage; when one door closes and another always opens. Rolling up the carpet on the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show in 2018 gives me personalf freedom to explore new avenues and options in 2019. My main focus will be to integrate more television roles into my calendar. The transition has been and will be smooth because I made the plan two years ago. Currently I have one new show and a special under my belt and positioning myself for more!"

Kerry Vincent

 

Rosalind Miller Cakes

“My Cake New Year’s Resolution is to make sure I find the time to slow down and take some inspiration from nature for my next collection. It’s where I get all my best inspiration from! I’ve also been taking a Lalique inspired glass jewellery making class so I want to incorporate some glass-like decorations into new designs, experimenting with isomalt techniques. And lastly, I’m really keen to develop some flavours with ruby chocolate. It has such an interesting flavour and colour."

Britt Box: She Who Bakes

“My #CNYR is to decorate more cakes just for fun! There are so many designs I have in my head that I’d love to just have a go at! I also desperately need to sort through my cake cupboards and drawers! A proper baking spring clean is in order! I’m also teaching more workshops, doing more book signings andwriting more blogs!”

Britt Box: She Who Bakes

 

Natasha Collins: Nevie-Pie Cakes

“My caking resolution is to practice my royal icing after taking a fabulous beginners class with Tessa Whitehouse. I would also love to find a quiet few weeks just to experiment with new designs and techniques, but that may be too much to ask!"

Natasha Collins: Nevie-Pie Cakes

 

Natalie Porter: Immaculate Confections

“My #CNYR is to finish decorating and organising my cake room at home so I can teach more private lessons (I love spending one to one time with lovely cakers!) and I would love to go teach in Ireland. I want to get better at social media and be more organised. And oh yes... I also need to finish that book!"

Natalie Porter: Immaculate Confections

 

Veronica Seta: Cake Designer

“My #CNYR is always getting into the routine of international competitions, increase my lessons on sugar flowers and write for magazines, promote products for cake design as an ambassador and take
a modelling class with the incredible artist Zhou Yi,Sugar King."

Veronica Seta: Cake Designer

 

Julie Rogerson: Julie's Cake in a Box and award-winning sugar artist

“My #CNYR is to expand my wedding cake side of the business, train as a BSG accredited demonstrator and hopefully start to teach some of my own classes. I am really excited to be creating new tutorials for Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft Magazine next year too!"

Julie Rogerson: Julie's Cake in a Box and award-winning sugar artist

 

Rhianydd Webb: Dragons and Daffodils

“My #CNYR is to continue to expand the side of my business that has always been my true passion - teaching. It’s just the best feeling watching students leave the classroom proudly carrying their newest creation - but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a huge wish list of classes I would love to attend too."

Rhianydd Webb: Dragons and Daffodils

 

Lihi Rosenberg: Co-founder and CEO of Magic Colours

“My #CNYR for 2019 is to launch the new products we've been working so hard on for the last months, to find more time to sit inside the production hall as it truly inspires me and I never tire of it, and to shrink my 'unread' list in my mailbox. But my real true #CNYR is to attend more shows so I will get to meet more cakers and cake designers all over the world. Bring it on!"

Lihi Rosenberg: Co-founder and CEO of Magic Colours

 

Lisa Elliott: Lisa Jayne Cakes

“My #CNYR is to expand my skills by taking an isomalt modelling class. I'd like to enter more competitions and feature in more tutorials both in print and online... and maybe even in a classroom!"

Lisa Elliott: Lisa Jayne Cakes

 

Veda Albrezenchi: Cake artist

“My #CNYR is to take a sugar flower course with Alan Dunn or Naomi Yamamoto. Also to have more time for caking and execute the ideas that I have had in mind for quite sometime…"

Veda Albrezenchi

 

Charlotte White: Restoration Cake

“My #CNYR is to shine up my cake tins - they get so stained over a full year of baking and January is the perfect time to get the Brillo pads out. They'll be stained up again by March! I would like to try out a few more buttercream styles for 2019 AND learn a few new royal icing tricks on very different cakes. Happy New Year, you gorgeous lot."

Charlotte White: Restoration Cake

 

Violet Lin Tran: Cake designer and Satin Ice Artist of Excellence

“My #CNYR this year is to challenge myself and find the courage to do things out of my cake comfort zone. For instance I'd like to 1) enter my first ever cake competition, 2) incorporate more sculpted work into my designs, and 3) travel on my own overseas to teach.”

Violet Lin Tran: Cake designer and Satin Ice Artist of Excellence

 

Rose Macefield

“My #CNYR is to convert the garage in my new house into a studio so I can make more video and paper tutorials. I also want to enhance my airbrushing skills and learn more techniques with isomalt. I am oping to start work on my next book too”

Rose Macefield

 

Corinna Maguire: Lovin' from the Oven

“Last year was crazy busy and I have a feeling that 2019 might be just as bad. So, this year I’ve promised myself that I’ll use a full year calendar and allocate blocks of time to finish each of my projects, that’s my #CNYR. Whether this is to prepare for a class, finish a collaboration or even to do my taxes – this year will be different (famous last words?)."

Corinna Maguire: Lovin' from the Oven

 

Zoe Burmester: Sugar Street Studios

“My #CNYR is to develop my sugar clay and continue to make sculpting a more accessible art form within cake decorating. I also want to learn about isomalt art and to take some classes to improve my painting skills. It’s going to be a busy year!"

Zoe Burmester: Sugar Street Studios

 

Jacqui Kelly: Totally Sugar

“#CNYR's at Totally Sugar headquarters here in SW London, include deep-cleaning (oh joy) and redecoration, focusing the studio towards the new teaching programme that has just launched with exciting classes in 'Structure of cakes; airbrushing and cake carving' plus a brand new design class. I’ll also be setting up a mini studio to help with photography and where I will be hosting my vlogs... oh yes you'll see lots more of Jacqui in 2019!"

Jacqui Kelly: Totally Sugar
