Ugh!! I'm trying so hard to make a tiara for a little girls bday on monday... its a free range cake (I get to do what i want)... and since i dont get to do girly cakes very often thought I'd tackle the pillow/tiara cake... WELL!... 7 RI tiara's later I'm about to give up... they all pipe beautifully but are sooo fragile... and butter fingers me has dropped - one way or another - each one... so now I'm trying chocolate... not as easy to pipe... but is sure stronger... here's my attempt #1 at chocolate...
i don't like it it's ugly... of those that have made chocolate (candy) ones... what is the best finishing effect? can u just lustre it and it'll look okay?? think I'll colour the choc different... maybe purpley/pinker for a starter... ((sigh))... help .... plleeeeaaseee (at this point i'm grovelling)..
it looks beautiful to a little girl, she will love the tiara.
that darn royal icing is so fragile isnt it, i get frustrated when i work with it.
I'm really sorry but I don't see what you're talking about. That tiara looks beautiful!!! It's pretty, it's pink, it's sparkly and it has the little girl's name, everything a little girl needs to feel like a princess on her special day!!! You've done a fantastic job, don't be too critical of yourself.
That is BEAUTIFUL !! Just leave it alone, and wait for the applause.......
I also think it looks great!
Step away before you have to post this topic in cake disasters!
I agree it looks great. Any little girl would love to have that on her cake.
It's totally gorgeous !!
How big is it ?
I think it looks really nice. And it is so special with her name in it as well.
awww... thanks guys... ur too kind!!... i made another one... darker and less sparkles... now I have 2 to choose from! hehe... will see which one sits best on the cake i guess...
as for the size, they are 2" high, and about 8.5" from side to side...
((sigh)) maybe i am too critical...
I think it looks wonderful. I'd be proud of it if it was mine!
I love it - what did you use for the pattern/template?
what??!!?? It's beautiful and she'll love it.
the template was one i just made up... just a whole heap of hearts and squiggles...
Do you still have that template? I think it's so cute!
