I will be making a princess cake and a dirt bike cake at the same time and I need a little help on both. Anyone know of a great butter cream frosting for the princess cake. I purchased the 3 princess toppers and will be using mini bundt cakes for the dresses. If you can picture it. I know exactly how to decorate it. The last few times I have made butter cream frosting it was runny. I did not even put in the milk. I have looked it up before but would like direct information and steps to make it right. I want to use a shortening base with butter flavoring. I tried it without actual butter one time and well I could only get that texture of the shortening and over powered the butter flavoring. With the dirt bike cake I would like to make jump for the dirt bike and want the dirt bike to basically be in the air, does anyone know how I would be able to. I know it seems well easy to but I want to make sure I have what I need before I attempt to make the cake. Thanks in advance
I have found that I like Tonednas recipe. You can find the recipe and a tutorial on her site. www.designmeacake.com . I had been using the wilton bc recipe, but never got the desired results. Her recipe is awesome and the tutorial is great as wekk. HTH
I agree with VickeyC's suggestion for your BC...super recipe and Edna's tutorial will take you step-by-step thru making it and it's perfect everytime!
You can attach a rather heavy gauge wire (depending on the size of your dirt bike) to the bike and then insert the other end of the wire in a straw in your ramp. Let me know if you don't understand what I mean. HTH!
The very first time I used the Wilton recipe I know I messed it up. It tastes great just I made it runny. Thanks! Also with the wiring when I buy the dirt bike I will have to look in the craft section The wire I think your talking about would work wonderful. Thank you. I know in th fake flower section they have wiring that might work.. The cake is for a 5 year old I dont think he would judge. I just love making cakes
You'll do fine with it (you already know your supply sources!) Let us know how it works out for you. Yep, caking is addictive...just like this website
Same here, I joined this morning and I'm glad I did. I will posts pics when finished!
I like to use Indydebi's buttercream that can be found on this site.
