Any thoughts on a sleep over cake for about 15 10-12yr. old girls?
Having it this weekend. Thanks
Do they like Bratz? Something like that? Try a cupcake cake. It's so much easier to serve. And with that crowd, you'll need easy!!
Actually Bratz was last years fad.. Kids ugh!
But she likes Tinkerbell, a very detailed and scary attempt. But the cupcake idea is a great one. You think a buttercream transfer will hold on a cupcake "cake"?
Yes, a cupcake cake will hold a transfer.... or why not do the "sleep over "cake" it's in one of the Wilton yearbooks.... you could make a 6x6 cake and have fondant girls under a blanket.... Just a thought
hmmm. I also was told that I could use Twinkies for the girls, just cover them with the frosting blanket (or fondant) and make faces on them. I thought that was cute too.. hmmm.. I must admit with all these great ideas, I may have to put them in a hat and pick from there. If it were up to me I would make them all!!! But hubby says "No more cake than you need" we have 12 B-days in January within our immediate family.. I better rethink the Valentines cake huh.....
A ccc will hold a BCT just fine as long as your ccc is level. It can't be all bumpy, like some people leave them.
Well, you can tell I don;t have young children (my boys are 23 and 21)... so I had no clue that Bratz were "so last year!" hahahahaha!!!
Here is a fairly simple Tinkerbell design. I would do her wings and the twinkles after flipping it over. But make sure you place icing there to have a place to make the wings.
Tinkerbell in flight with wand
Here eyes require a bit of skill. I do those (and Barbie's eyes) after I flip it over using my glaze technique. But the thicker glaze, as if writing.
Thank you so much for those pictures.. And your wisdom!
Now to get my printer to do as I say , when I SAY IT..
Things around here seem to have a mind of it's own. You should see me and the T.V. going head to head..hehe
One more tip!!
When I was learning how to make Barbie's eyes it took me THREE, yes, THREE tries. So make a few practice heads first. Don't leave yourself short.
