Festive Gingerbread Latte Coffee Cup Cake

Abi Mancktelow

Get cosey with this festive gingerbread latte themed cake,  perfect for any coffee lover and a great alternative to the traditional family Christmas cake.  

Join Abi in this delightful tutorial and learn how to create this bang on trend takeaway coffee cup novelty cake in just a few simple steps. We begin with how to achieve a beautiful confetti effect iced cake board enhancing that magical winter feel, following on with how to carve an 8 inch square sponge cake into a conical shape, continued with how to prep and cover with sugarpaste for a smooth finish. 

You will also be shown how to create textural surfaces such as knitted wool and patterned recycled card using a variety of shaped moulds and embossing sheets to enhance the coffee cup's appeal and lastly learn how to achieve a whipped cream effect oozing with what appears to be caramel sauce decorated with a hand-made festive sugar cane and gingerbread man for that special treat. For more seasonal ideas and modelling techniques then check out our other video tutorials below.

Unicorns, ice-cream cones, Minions, pastel colours, and floral themed masterpieces are just a few examples of her fun and funky style. Abi specialises in sculpted novelty cakes and quirky cupcake designs which cleverly incorporate a cake board to make a centrepiece out of cupcakes. Some examples of this include a snooker table, a scrabble board, and a beautiful blooming bouquet of rose cupcakes. Her aim is to make impressive cakes which anyone at home could do easily. Abi is always bang on trend and her methods couldn't be easier to follow, especially for beginners.
