EASY Plants vs. Zombies Cake

  This was the first time I've attempted to use fondant.  I thought things might be a whole lot easier if I used rice krispy treats as a base.  I packed in the treats pretty well.  Some posts suggested crushing the rice krispy, to keep the base from falling apart.  Mine stayed together just fine without doing that and the treats were still edible.       I made some vanilla butter cream to smooth over the treats to ensure that the fondant will lay smoothly.  I didn't want to have to move the cake once completed and decided to decorate it right on the... read more

  CLASSIC PIANO TUTORIAL By ANA REMÍGIO This was my first attempt at making an elevated piano. I’m sure there may be alternative methods for doing these steps but this was the way that worked for me.     1 - First of all, you need to do the structure to hold the cake.

Draw the shape of the piano onto the board and using an Xacto knife cut out... read more

How to make a Mini Taco Cakes

  So how did I do it? Start preparing the “Taco Shells” a day or days ahead the cake is needed. (Since I can only work on cakes at night due to my regular work – I prepared the “Taco Shells” 3 days ahead). TACO SHELLS – My first question I had was what do I use to make the shells? I’ve seen two versions – one using a Cookie Dough and another using melted choco-melts. They are both great but not what I had in mind. I’d like it to look like a real hard taco shells. I also wanted to prepare the shells ahead of time. So I decided to use fondant with a little bit of... read more
