Thank you all for sharing your successes and failures. The bane of my caking has been bulging sides, I know many of you have felt the same frustration.
Today is a different day! It is with pride that I display my latest cake (simple as it is)...NO BULGING! I am so happy with this cake, a knock-off of one by Suzisweet (so cute).
Please feel free to leave any deserved criticism, I do truly welcome it. I know that the cake wasn't perfect but man, it's been a long time coming that I'm happy when I'm done
Thank you so much for looking!!
Congratulations! Perfect sides - great job
those are some razor-sharp sides for such a tall cake- congrats! it's the best feeling to conquer a "cake obstacle"
very good, non bulge, cake! can you give us some tips?
I added a little melted-melting wafers to my buttercream for the crumb coat then Viva method from there. THe cake is a 5" round, about 6" tall, Lemon Creamsicle cake with white chocolate buttercream, fondant accents. So much fun to cake when things come out as you imagine!!!!!
6" tall!? It looks tall on the pic but i didnt know it was that tall. I was impressed before but this is quite an impressive task!!! congrats!!!
Thanks, I feel like a whole new caker!
