I don't want to offend anyone, and I'm afraid I don't know the answer. I know this site is great for sharing and there are ton's of free advice and tutorials out there so I'm sure someone can answer.

But out of curiosity.. why don't you buy the video to see how it's done? I wonder what makes someone even want to buy a video or DVD when the information is so easy to get for free? Again, please, I'm just curious from a business standpoint.

Turn down your oven...put a pan of water on the rack beneath your cakes.

I've purchased videos and have found my abilities/finished product change immensely from amateur to professional looking. Sometimes you just pick up an unrelated trick that changes your whole outcome.

I must admit, too, that I just love watching them for pure entertainment!
