You are such a good teacher!

I've never taken a cake decorating course, so I always had troubles with my petunias. I'm going to try them out sometime this week. If I make them in advance, how long will they last?

Just make sure they are fully dried in an open place. Usually over 5 days is best. After that, just put them in a box in a place where is dried. They will last for months!..
DO NOT STORE THEM IN THE FRIDGE!

If you have to do a cake that needs to go back in the fridge. Place the petunias at the last minute. Royal Icing doesnt like the fridge..

Thanks so much.

I noticed your BC recipes on the designmeacake website. Which consistency do you use on your cakes that gives it such a clean, perfect finish?

The crumbcoat starts in a medium to thin consistency.. this depends on how soft is your cake. The second coat goes closer to a medium consistency. It tends to do a good coverage. Thin icing leaves your icing translucent and you will see your cake..
More than that, it makes a cake more unstable when the icing is too thin.

Your petunias are beautiful I love all flowers but those are especially lovely I want to learn to make them thanks for the tutorial.

I think my problem is with my BC filling. It's obviously too soft because even when I fill my cakes and let them sit for a few hours, I still get buldges.
