So I made a youtube video for the first time. It's a 13 minute condensed version of making a two tier cake. Definitely not professional, but I think it's entertaining enough. =) You're welcome to watch it. Also, I'm not asking for any critiquing, just wanted to share. =)




Thanks all!

Uh...I think it's having issues...I see lots of lines..do you?

KateLS Posted 10 Oct 2012 , 5:05pm

Okay, so if you're getting lines, just reload and go to where you were. That fixed it for me. I think it's just something with youtube.

I tred to watch and it said you had not made it available in a mobile version (I use an iPad). I have never gotten that type of message before when I have tried to watch anything.

KateLS Posted 10 Oct 2012 , 5:22pm

hmm...that's weird, I check it out....

Thanks for letting me know!

KateLS Posted 10 Oct 2012 , 5:33pm

Well, stink, it's because of the certain songs I have. I'm allowed to use them, but the companies that own the song are allowed to put ads and stuff since their song is being used. And ads don't appear on mobiles, so they disable it. Annoying.

Sorry about that!

Very nice! I like your narration. I didn't have time to watch the whole thing, but I jumped to the end, and the cake turned out great! Also, your Star Wars comments at the end are hilarious! Thanks for sharing.

I liked it, it looked like lots of fun. That was a nice break for me today from my three toddlers. I understand how challenging it can be decorating a cake with little ones in the house. I'm glad your fondant pieces survived so you can get them on the cake. My monsters steal my fondant pieces while they are drying and they brag about it when they succeed. Loved the star wars bit at the end.

I will watch at home on my PC. Just always h
ave mobile with me.

Great Video! would you mind sharing your buttercream recipe?

I watched the entire video. I loved it. Very entertaining. If only we could really decorate a cake that fast. Man we'd have it made. I caught that it was gluten free too. Love that.

Loved it. icon_smile.gif

Great job!!!! thumbs_up.gif I also watched it twice icon_biggrin.gif I tried to use the "icing plugs" but could not make it work. Your cake was also beautiful and cheerful!

Thank you!

CIAO!

KateLS Posted 11 Oct 2012 , 3:38am

Wow! =)

I wasn't notified of your comments!

Thank you all so much!! =) I really appreciate your sweet compliments!!

And MSGF, I agree! I SO wish we could truly do it all that fast.

rdjr- I used Sharon Zambito's frosting recipe. It's here on cakecentral. It's under "Sugarshack Icing and Tips" but mine was dairy free. I substituted coconut milk for the coffee creamer. (and I'd give the link, but I'm on an old iPhone turned iPod, so it's hard to get the link.)

Too funny, yet frustrating!!

When I was done, I had a bunch of left over fondant/gumpaste pieces on the counter, including a couple of bows.

My daughters asked if they could have a bow and I said yes. They then asked if they could have a little piece of a scrap. I said yes and had to go feed my baby. I come back and ever bit and scrap of gumpaste and fondant was gone. LoL Well, at least it was one less thing to clean up. And luckily, they didn't get stomach aches.

Hi again, Soledad! =)

Sorry the plugs didn't work for you. I didn't really show it close, so I'll try to explain it.

First, put your coupler in your icing bag. Then after you roll up the frosting in the plastic wrap, you tightly roll the end of the plastic wrap and slide it through the coupler and trim the plastic wrap up to the coupler. Then you can add your tip and coupler screw thing. (yeah, real technical there...) But if you're doing your frosting or dam, you'll only need the coupler.

If the frosting doesn't want to get through the plastic wrap just slightly pull it back up into the frosting bag to give it a bit more space.

Hope that all makes sense!
