I am wanting to try out some new techniques with either fondant or buttercream, but something I can do on a small scale, maybe one tier 6 or 8in??? Any ideas, photos, or tutorials ya'll would like to share! I went back and fourth in my head for about 2 weeks now on if I would make my own cake, or since its my birthday, hire someone else to do it and take a break lol! Decided its a great excuse to eat cake, and play with it too
No one!?!? what are some of your favorite techniques?? Share with me your favorites I want to try something new but I don't know what to do!! Please I just baked myself an 8in vanilla cake! I can bake more if I need to!!
Why not a hot pink and black zebra number with a big feather ontop...and then you can sing happy birthday to yourself and say Yeah me!!
why not try a ribbon cake? http://d30opm7hsgivgh.cloudfront.net/upload/27145449_zUujXdbZ_b.jpg
or a roses cake: http://d30opm7hsgivgh.cloudfront.net/upload/8960736_bjIcqxFS_c.jpg
Like the roses cake idea too. If you've never done that one! i never have either but would love to know how yours turns out!
The roses cake is super romantic and soft. The zebra is wow and edgy so depends how you feel!!!
I just did a rose cake and it was super fun! It's quick and easy and looks uber fancy. I made a gumpaste initial and cover it with sanding sugar for a glittery topper. It was fun
I have done the rose cake!!! It was super cute and easy, did it for my anniversary cake, so I will have to think of something different for my birthday! thanks yall!
For my birthday cake, I said I was going to do something I wanted to try. I even thought about doing the pregnant belly cake, but we were taking it somewhere and my husband said he would not eat it. So I found the turtle cake I did in my pictures. I found it with fondant and said I was doing that one in fondant. Once again DH said he wouldn't eat that either so I did the turtle in buttercream. Tasted good but not exactly what I wanted. So he wanted a carved car cake for his birthday and he got the dragracing cake in my photos. He complained I didn't make him what he wanted, I said oh well. Eat your cake. I say look at pictures and see what you would really like to try.
