I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who posts on CC for all the helpful information and ideas you have given me. I just tried a few new techniques this week that I never would have known how to attempt without the information that I've found on this site. The cake came out great and got rave reviews. It was my first time freezing, using simple syrup on the layers, torting and doing scroll work. It was just a practice cake, but my coworkers all loved the taste - they have no problem being my taste testers! So, thank you and wish me luck as I keep trying new things. I think ganache will be my next big adventure and then I want to try carving 3D cakes.
Thank you everyone!
thats awesome all the things you were able to try with the cake! It's so much fun doing new things when they go well and everyone loves them! This site is like my cake university LOL good luck with ganache! Your coworkers will LOVE you
