A while back I got an email from Cake Masters Magazine and I almost passed out, they wanted me to make the makeup case tutorial for their September issue. I was over the moon with that opportunity that it took me a while to realize the I had to make the cake for the tutorial the same week as my mom's birthday cake. 

Makeup case to sewing kit cake

I had to come up with a way of making two cakes in the limited time I had. I didn't want to waste any cake and I couldn't use styrofoam for the tutorial, using real cake was a must. That's when I decided to make two cakes in one or should I say two different designs on one single cake.

That's how the Idea of turning the make up box cake into a sewing kit came to be. My mom loves sewing so a sewing kit cake was perfect for her birthday cake. 

I only baked one cake and I only had to make the structure and board once. The only extra work was making the decorations for each cake but for sure was less time than making two whole cakes from start to finish.

Of course I couldn't resist the chance of filming the whole transformation, now you can see it too.

Spinning cakes are a formidable way to impress your guests with something that's beautiful and fun at the same time. Just imagine how cool it is to have a cake you can interact with and reconfigure so you can get up to 16 different cakes -or 64 different sides- with just a few spins.

I made a moving Rubik's cube cake for my sister's birthday and posted a video of the cake a year ago. The response was off the charts and everyone wanted to know how I did it, that's how the Moving Rubik's Cube cake tutorial came to be. This year I surprised my sister with another rotating birthday cake, this time with characters from her all time favorite Peanuts.

A rotating cake is lots of fun to have in your party, but it's also fun to make and easy too. You can learn to make your own rotating cake with the simple technique I teach in my new video tutorial. Once you master the technique it's all up to your creativity. You can use the lovely dolls provided in the tutorial or you can feature your favorite characters from Peanuts, Star Wars, Barbie, Lego or Avengers... or you can simply mix and match faces placing eyes in the top tier, nose in the middle and mouth in the bottom tier... the possibilities are endless!
