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 icon_redface.gif 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

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.

Ok Peggy,
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

I think you sell yourself short. I looked at your pictures and I think you do very nice work.

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!!!
