I had the opportunity to spend the day with Jackie Thompson from Contemporary Cakes  Today we made a shooting stars cake.  This is a chocolate mudcake with chocolate ganache and covered in fondant.  Wired sugarpaste stars give the cake a great exploding effect.  A great day filled with helpful advice, tips, company and laughter.  Jackie has many cake decorating classes that cater for all levels of skill.  Thanks Jackie!
