I just recievevd Sugarshacks fondant and stacking dvd's and they are wonderful!!!!!! But I am curious about the torting. She only leveled each cake and had one filling layer.
I have been torting the cake for a total of 4 layers of cake and 3 filling layers.
I was just wondering what the majority of other decorators do?
I'm with you, I like to torte but I think it's just a personal preference.
Im with you... I torte two layer cakes and fill three. I add a brushing of simple syrup on each layer.
I think Sugarshack might have done that just for the video but Im not sure
I did my first torting for the cake I did for my mother's birthday, and I did that mainly because I was going to be carving the cake and wanted to be sure there was filling in all the parts of it. However, I really liked the way it turned out, so I'm probably going to torte and fill my layers from now on.
It depends. If it's something like a really moist carrot cake, I do two layers and one filling. If it's a 'straightforward flavour like vanilla, chocolate or lemon, I do four layers and three fillings. For fruitcakes I do no fillings at all.
It depends on the cake I am doing. Sometimes I do 4 layers with three filling. Sometimes I do 3 layers with two fillings.
My weddings are 2 layers of cake with one layer of filling.
My dessert cakes are 4 layers of cake with 3 layers of filling. Because I have a premium price on the dessert cakes, I want to take them up a notch .... they won't find a cake like this in a grocery store bakery.
If a bride requests torting, I'll do it. If a birthday-mom requests a sheet that is torted, I'll do it.
