I just wanted to share that I tried BC spackle on a carved sheriff star cake. I didn't have enough chocolate for ganache and wanted nice, firm, pointed star ends. After reading a thread where someone was talking about Toba Garrett's Spackle recipe, I decided to try. WOW!!! It worked like a charm. I carved, used pieces to add to BC and some choc ganache(instead of preserves) i did have, covered the cake. It had a great firm shape and nice crumb coat too. I then covered with BC and so on.
I can't remember the thread, but I love this site - it has helped me more than any other.
Thank You ~ Blessings,
I remember that thread; but now I can't find it. Can you tell me anything about how much crumbs and bc? Was the consistency thin (more bc than crumbs), medium (about equal amounts of both) or thick (more crumbs than bc)? I hope I'm making sense.
