Question for all those that have sculpted cakes.
Do you prefer to sculpt your cakes to get the general shape done and then fill them and do the final touches or do you prefer to fill them and then sculpt them.
I've seen shows and instructions demonstrating each way but wanted to get some thoughts from all you experienced CCers!
Thanks for any advice!!
I fill, chill overnight, then sculpt.
Thanks Tara. Appreciate the input.
i do fill first too...only because i am afraid of breaking the scuplted caked..and getting it back together in one piece
I don't see how anyone could sculpt then fill. It doesn't make sense. If you carved, then took it apart to fill it, and then put it back together, it's not going to be lined up and even to the dimensions that you had before filling. The edges won't line up, there will be gaps....I can't see how anyone could pull that off.
Yep, what they said _^___^_
If I am doing a filling that requires an icing dam, I just make the dam extra wide to account for the area I will inevitably carve away.
