No X

You could use waxed paper, but parchment works better

veejaytx Posted 22 Jan 2007 , 9:40am

No Z


All I can say is, I've never used parchment to line my pans.

denise2434 Posted 22 Jan 2007 , 2:06pm

But does your cake still come easily out of the pan?

ShirleyW Posted 22 Jan 2007 , 9:25pm

Cake decorating is an art that will continue for years to come

denise2434 Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 12:01am

Do you use cake mix or make a scratch cake?

ShirleyW Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 12:50am

Every brand of cake mix seems to give a different result

I think you skipped ahead a bit

Fried ice cream with cake is a taste treat

Giving my pans with a nice coating of the homemade cake release works fine to keep my cakes from sticking.

Pootchi Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 12:39pm

Hope you can give me your homemade cake release recipe?

denise2434 Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 1:44pm

Is this how you make your buttercream?

veejaytx Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 3:45pm

Just mix well equal parts flour, crisco and oil, keeps well unrefrigerated, and you can make as much or as little as you need.

ShirleyW Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 4:58pm

Kind of like CK pan grease, works great.

denise2434 Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 8:01pm

Love to practice cake decorating!

ShirleyW Posted 23 Jan 2007 , 8:41pm

Mixing a dozen colors until you come up with just the right shade for the icing

veejaytx Posted 24 Jan 2007 , 10:17am

No limit to the help available on CC.

ShirleyW Posted 24 Jan 2007 , 9:32pm

Oven temperatures vary, you need a good thermometer.

veejaytx Posted 24 Jan 2007 , 11:37pm

Piping BCI flowers is fun and pretty to look at.

ShirleyW Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 12:00am

Quiet is needed when concentrating on a cake design

veejaytx Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 12:06am

Roses, piped or other forms can be difficult.

ShirleyW Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 3:26am

The place to go for answers on baking is CC

Until a baker/decorator is licensed, he/she is not supposed to sell cakes.

ShirleyW Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 3:40am

Don't get them started again Janice! icon_biggrin.gif

Victory is yours when you have conquered rolled fondant on a cake

veejaytx Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 3:56am

Why worry, "they" don't play the word games with us.

ShirleyW Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 7:48am

Xactly Right

Your finished cake is your crowning glory

veejaytx Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 9:19am

Zip around and take a photo or two of that cake, just in case!

ShirleyW Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 8:00am

After baking comes the fun part, decorating.

veejaytx Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 8:31am

Baking cakes for family gatherings can be tricky, sometimes "they" begin to expect them.

ShirleyW Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 8:58am

Cakes, Cookies, Crusts, all a part of baking

veejaytx Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 9:10am

Decorating cakes is great as a fun hobby or an occupation.
