Could you please tell me, when the 2 cakes are put together,for the pumpkin, do you put the top layer on a cake board,and can you maybe put some filling between them? I know you can't do the section where the hole is Just curious, Peggy
I first put one layer on a board, I use b/c filling because of its stiffness. It will hold the top layer in place without slippage. I then let it set for about a half hour and then put a flavored basic sugar syrup, let it set somemore, ice with thin coating of b/c let it set again and then cover with fondant and decorate.
Hope this helps, Good Luck
Thanks Virginia, you did help, as a matter of fact your the only one that has answered my? One more? can I BC the whole cake? I'm no good with fondant Thanks Peggy
Oh sure! There was a pic of one made with b/c that was tinted orange. I'll see if I can find it and let you know the thread. It's quite cute.
Here it is, look at how nice this was done with b/c. You can decorate it anyway you want to. By the way as we are chatting, I am baking my cakes to make pumpkins. haha

you can also look at it on the profile site of Rose-lynn. She submitted the photo.
Hope this helps
Your absolutely right, Rose-Lynn's pumpkin is beautiful I will have color my BC, I'm not lucky enough to have an air brush, or good enough Thanks again for all the info,Peggy
I think you sell yourself short. I looked at your pictures and I think you do very nice work.
Gee Thanks AuntGinn and 2sdae for the kind words, my confidence just went through the roof My mom says I'm my worst critic. Kudos, Peggy
just make one yesterday! check out my photobucket site! I just leveled my cakes and put a small strip of frosting using the big icing tip and put the 2nd cake on top.. then I used two dowels just to give it alittle more structure since I have to travel with this cake today.. the icing tip saved my butt with frosting the cake, made it sooo easy!!!
