My boss has asked me to do a cricut cake demonstration for a big craft fair. I will be demonstrating the product for over 200 people (OMG). I have not used the machine more than a few times- but with fairly good success, thanks to the suggestions here on CC.
My question is can some one give me ideas for cake designs that will be impressive, but easy to achieve? Nothing too complicated. I can only imagine standing in front of 200 people and not being able to get the stupid thing to work!
I am not sure how much time I have at this point, but I imagine 20 minutes or so. Design has always been my biggest challenge in decorating and I really don't want to mess this up.
Good luck!!! I would be a nervous wreck I did a practice cake when I first got mine and did some scrolling like design on the side of the cake. It was just for fun but it made the cake look pretty cool. It is the tealish one in my pics. I know using the gumpaste can be tempermantal, have you tried the icing sheets? Maybe that would be easier in front of a crowd. I haven't used them yet though so not sure
Bliss, that is a great one. Mind if I copy it?
I am not so worried about the demonstration part-- I have been doing demos since middle school 4-H. I just want a design that I can cut out with as little frustration as possible. The ultimate goal of the demo is to drive sales of the machine- so while I plan on being honest regarding the 'learning curve'- I want my project to be successful and stunning.
Not at all Good luck and be sure to add a pic here.
