There must be a good tutorial around here, but I must be search impaired because I have looked all around and cannot find one. Any suggestions on how to find one?
The other day I came across the most awesome castle cake on here.... it was brownish with flowering vines on it... the turrets looked like they had fondant tiles that were slightly flared out.... I wish I had bookmarked it - I'd love to use that as a model.
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!
Personal I cannot stand the Wilton castle cake, but then it might have been just me. I have used it 3 different times. The 1st time it was great and held together with no issues. The 2nd and 3rd time I could not get the turrets to stay standing no matter what I tried. So I opted for using ice cream cones and loved this techinque the best.
I used google to find ideas and tutorial that helped me.
Any other details you can remember so we can help find it?
I actually had to post on the decorating forum as well - I got desperate! Anyway, someone did find it for me - it's here --- http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=2229158
Gorgeous, isn't it?! I must know how to do this.
Yes it is a beautiful cake. I would recommend sending the baker a message and see if she/he is will to share any tips or tricks.
This are the sites that I found and that helped me.
Here is one tutorial I found... http://www.cakeboss.com/CastleTutorial.aspx
Here another one... http://www.make-fabulous-cakes.com/castle-cake.html
I did just send her a msg. I hope she doesn't mind sharing. I will be making my first wedding cake next month for a friend - and her wedding invitation has a castle on it. It would be so incredibly awesome if I could master even just a small castle for the top of the cake. It would be too perfect.
Thanks for the links! I can't seem to find it on the cake boss site though - do I need to subscribe or buy the tutorial?
Just copy the link and paste in your browser. For some reason it did not direct link the who web address. You should not need to join or pay for anything.
I did finally find it on the site - well worth searching around for! Thanks!
