Somehwere in the Cake Central forums I saw an article about how the baker cut a piece of a soda bottle and used to to round the top edge of a cake. Can someone please help me in finding the article"""
Hmmm...didn't realize that little tidbit was here in cc! Can't help you find the article, but I have one of those handy things.
The strip is cut from the "shoulder" of the soda bottle, maybe 4"-5" long and 1 1/2" wide, with a rounded edge at the curved end of the strip.
Does that make sense?
Anywho- hope someone can find the article for you - and hope it has a pic so you can see it.
Actually its a video. I have it somewhere. Be advised, though, it doesn't work as easily as advertised.
Hi I'm only new on here but was just reading that tip here
Hi, just looked at the post on the smothing of cakes to look like fondant. I bought the video how to do it. It suggests that you use the plastic that they use at bakerys for collars around cakes. I found them at a local cake shop.
12/$2.95 or something like that. The video is great..they guy is so quick.
I haven't tried it yet but I do always use viva paper towels. It smooths the cakes so nice. Other brands just don't work. There is a wonderful video on youtube about how to smooth with viva towels . I think it is by edna but you can find it easy if you just search. but you would swear it is fondant when done.
