The Paul Bradford Sugarcraft School and a Giveaway

Tropical Surprise Wedding Cake tutorial Paul Bradford Sugarcraft

Giveaways | May 24, 2017 | By

A beautifully decorated cake makes an outstanding centerpiece for any occasion. When my children were small I used to love to make them novelty cakes for their birthdays, unfortunately, I couldn’t find any photographs to share with you because they are all pre-digital.  However, I know I would have found the online tutorials from Paul Bradford Sugarcraft School a brilliant resource to learn more about sugarcraft techniques and improve my cake decorating skills. 

Let me tell you a bit more about the Paul Bradford Sugarcraft School and how you can win one year’s Pro Membership:

About Paul Bradford

Inspired by his gran, Paul Bradford has always had a passion for cake decorating. Paul went to Edinburgh’s Telford College to learn baking and cake design and afterward went on to work at the long established Oliphant’s bakery in Linlithgow. Initially starting as a baker, Paul soon carved out a niche for himself in cake decorating.

Looking to enhance his skills, Paul moved to a well-established cake company in Glasgow in early 2001 and by 2002, he had the opportunity of starting his very own business.

Paul Bradford was a founding owner of  Truly Scrumptious Designer Cakes and now helps out as a consultant.  In 2011 Paul changed his focus from creating designer wedding cakes and birthday cakes to teaching how to make them via his cake decorating courses and tutorials.

His rise to fame has seen several appearances on TV and the opportunity to make cakes for celebrities such as the Bee Gees, famous footballers, and royalty both here in the UK and Prince Albert of Monaco. He then went on to teach classes which he thoroughly enjoyed and started to focus solely on. Now with his tutorials available online, he hopes to help even more individuals achieve their dream of becoming a professional cake decorator.

    I baked my first ever cake for Comic Relief. A malteser cake that took me the whole morning to make. But the sense of satisfaction I got from making it was worth it.

      I used to have more patience for cake decorating, I did enjoy making the kids birthday cakes and made my sister’s 40th birthday cake which I was rather pleased with.

      I’m sure your cake was well appreciated and looked just like Tracy Island. Technique is what it’s all about and Paul Bradford shares those professional secrets to make it easier to get that perfect look.

    I haven’t ever had the confidence to attempt anything adventurous! I love admiring other peoples are wishing I could do that. I think the best cake I ever made was a “Crunchie” cake for my mum’s birthday as it’s her favourite chocolate bar – though it wasn’t very good!

    You know I have been looking for a course like this one. I love making cakes but they are of the more rustic persuasion! This looks amazing for someone with a lot of patience (who sadly isn’t me) and a great prize.

      I wouldn’t say your cakes are rustic at all, I’m sure a few little tips and tricks could well give you some ideas for decoration.

    I made an Easter cake that was decorated with sugar paste lilies and a tattered lace cross. Around the edge of the cake I put a lace border that was individual pieces, each hand painted.
