Jones Lang LaSalle Co-Sponsors The Jubilee Tea Party

An Afternoon with the Royal Cake Artist, David MacCarfrae

HONG KONG, 24 September 2012 - Jones Lang LaSalle, a professional services firm specializing in real estate services, is co-sponsoring the Jubilee Tea Party with Royal cake artist, David MacCarfrae. The afternoon tea party is organized by Complete Deelite, a celebration store that offers specialty cakes, cupcakes, cake decorating classes and private parties.
“David MacCarfrae’s cake decoration techniques will be a huge addition to what we offer in our classes. This is a good opportunity for us to learn and exchange ideas with a professional in the field”, commented Agnes Chin, co-owner of Complete Deelite.

This afternoon, the Royal Wedding Cake designer for Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, is presenting a demonstration on the art of Royal cake decorating. Hosted at the Aberdeen Marina Club, the three hour long session revealed David’s top tips for cake decorating, which are, in summary:

  • When you coat a cake you generally require a softer Royal Icing compared to firmer icing, for say piping. It’s a case of mixing the correct consistency for the job at hand.
  • Egg whites whip up better in acidic conditions, so you can add a few drops of lemon juice to Royal Icing.
  • Warm air will make Royal Icing set faster than cold air. If the air is too cold, Royal Icing is unlikely to set at all

Jones Lang LaSalle co-sponsored the event as it falls in line with the company’s goal of ‘Creating a Happy Home’ for its clients. The company has successfully relocated countless families from other countries to Hong Kong. From sourcing for a beautiful home, settling the children in international schools, to providing wholesome, family activities such as this event, Jones Lang LaSalle provides a seamless and complete service.
