OMG I have never been so fricken mad at a cake before!! I am trying to make a baby shower cake and the top tier was supposed to be white with horrizontal strips (but only a couple so it would like like ribbon) anywho first the white fondant ripped and then the stupud fondant ribbons kept ripping..sooo finally i just ripped all the fondant off the cake which in turn pulled off all of the ganache under neath! sooo i need help!
Would this cake look okay with blue, brown and white vertical stripes? I have attached the picture of the bottom tier....I need ideas for the top ASAP before this cake goes out the window
Yes, vertical stripes would look nice on it. What's going on top?
Thanks! I wasnt 100% sure... i have made little jungle animals for the top of the cake but the stupid top tier was being well..stupid... i ran out of ganache to do another crumb coat so i had to do buttercream soo i am just waiting for it to crust (its in the fridge) ...plus i have 50 cuppies to do still for my MIL for a bbq tomorrow ......
oh and did i mention that these are both free or gift cakes ! blah!
You didn't mean fricken.....
The stripes should be fine. I have done it in reverse before the dots on top and the stripes on bottom but never vice versa but I don't know why it wouldn't look just fine.
hahaha no patticakesnc i sure did not mean fricken!
okie well once my butter cream crusts I will be back at it! I will keep you updated! i think im gunna have a nice glass of wine to calm my nerves
What a pretty kitchen you have!
Anyhow, a bead border would look good...but if you feel like it, a twisted rope border would look even neater. You could use a thinner rope to edge the white part on top.
Texas Rose!! omg your a fricken genius!! thank you so much for the rope border idea! its looks great i will post pics soon
It looks great! The grass was the perfect touch!
Thanks ...the mommy to be loved it ..so i guess thats what matters !
Honestly, if I was the recepient I wouldn't have even noticed the actual cake because those jungle animals were so super adorable! Wonderful sculpting job!
It did turn out well. We are our own worst critics. I know I finished my bbq grill cake at 2 this morning and was not happy with it either. But my family loves it...if only we could love our work the way others do...
The cupcakes are adorable too. Just love your swirls and the coconut ones look just like the ones I did in my photos. My almond joy cupcakes is what I called them. YUMMY!
Thanks you guys are the best
patticakesnc , the coconut ones are filled with ganache then have a thin layer of buttercream then rolled in coconut and then drizzled with ganache soo yummy haha
SJ169 your jungle animals look fantastic
