Hi jojo35

I'm booked in on a beginners course with Lisa Munroe at the end of January. www.airbrushes.com

My airbrush has been lurking unused in a cupboard since Cake International 2 yrs ago so I decided this was the only way top overcome my fear of it. Lisa was very helpful when I spoke to her.

 

I think the airbrush I bought came with Kroma colours but I since found some Americolor at the Cake Decorating Company in Nottingham.

I always stick to a Victoria sponge cake recipe, most call for vanilla but if not you can just add it in. I haven't made very many cupcakes as I prefer to make big cakes however the ones I have done using a VS recipe have turned out v good!! 

Good luck :)

This is my go-to vanilla cake recipe

I usually make it with whole eggs or egg yolks (egg yolks if I'm making a meringue buttercream), it's delicious!

LisaPeps, I've never had much luck with this recipe, I just figured it was the lack of cake flour in the UK rather than readily admitting to not being able to bake it... What flour do you use if you don't mind me asking? Regular plain flour? Thanks!

I use mcdougalls sponge flour (blue packet) and lower the amount of leavening.

Oh dear, just seen she's took it down, hopefully I have a printed copy at my moms :S

Hi there I own a little bakery in Devon - we love Mary Berry's Baking Bible - not one of her recipes have gone wrong - they are idiot proof icon_biggrin.gif

Hi there, I always use the HD recipe which is on BSG forum. But you need to register to see all the recipes and it's free too. This cake is great for carving too. I put the cake in the fridge prior to carving, which makes it easier to carve and less crumbs. icon_biggrin.gif

I always use a vanilla madeira recipe as this is a little firmer than VS  and keeps well.xx
