Im sure these are silly questions, but in alot of the books I buy they call for ingredients that Im not sure what they are, or where to buy them. Here are just a few, Im sure I'll think of more later
1) cake flour
4) liquid glucose
Can somone tell me a little bit about them and where I can buy them? I know Wal-mart and Hy-Vee doesnt carry some of them. Thanks!!!
You should be able to get cake flour in the grocery stores, it's just a finer flour to improve the texture from what I've heard.
Albumen is the egg white. so you should be able to just buy the cartons with egg whites.
Glycerin I buy in the drugstore, sometimes you have to ask the pharmacist. I also use glycerin for bubble blowing - makes them shiny and colorful.
You can buy glucose at craft stores like Micheals.
Hope that helps
I had no idea. Im just trying to learn as I go here.
Yes, some books can be confusing at first. My dh bought me a lovely book at Christmas that was printed in the UK and I had to do a little research to figure out what some of the ingredients were
hehe Can I ask how long you have been decorating? Oh...and thanks for the tips by the way
No problem! Since other members have been so helpful to me, I'm glad to be of help to someone else for a change
I've been decorating just as a hobby for family and friends for about 13 years, only in the past 2 years have I been doing for those outside my family.
How about you? What got you interested in decorating?
Galaglow... that was some good advice!! Good going !!
Thanks TC! I'm happy I can help someone else for a change
oh, you do help!!
Oh....sorry Im so late on my post galaglow......I left the house for awhile. I just started getting interested in cake decorating because I needed a hobby. Hubby is in pre-med and I figured if I didnt find something to do with my time when Im not at work, I would go crazy!!!! So anyway, Im glad I have the boards to help!!!
Hello Galaglow...one question : What is bubble blowing ? Do you have any pics ? And how do you do that ?
And thanks for the answers to newbiecakemaker...it helped me....
Hello I guess I should have explained that better...it's nothing to do with cake decorating...simply blowing soap bubbles like kids do, except I'm into a little heavier LOL! I like to make the giant bubbles with the big bubble wands. The glycerin just makes the bubbles look prettier
