AWho is the tutorial best suited for, if someone asked you? Like who would you aim this at, what sort of decorator? Beginner, hobbyist, seasoned pro, etc.

Just an FYI, Disney is going after all types of


. One of my students recently had her video pulled and then got a cease & desist order along with a demand for payment. She wanted to know what to do. I told her to get a lawyer.

oh yeah--i kept waiting for something toy story-ish--i'm not all up on all the characters because i'm retired and because i don't do copyrighted stuff anyhow--

 

so let me amend my opinion--while it was a very cute video the copyright issue is something that definitely needs to be addressed--

 

sorry you clearly said "toy story' and i just did not recognize those characters as "toy story" but i guess they are--and by addressed i mean consider removing them for your own well being as mimi relates--

 

sorry--i was asleep at the wheel~~

ACute, but not helpful for me since those are very beginner level cupcakes.

Is no one going to mention that using a butter knife to cut out fondant MAY not produce the best cuts?? And that perhaps kneading a bit of cornstarch into it may help it to be a bit less gooey and easier to pick up and move around?

AAre you kidding me?! And this is a tutorial?

ellenoirify Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 9:59am

well since I just bake for fun I would say it´s best suited for beginners and hobby baker. I don´t think that my tutorials are helpful for pros but maybe they get a little inspiration.  Because I´m definitely not a pro so… :lol:
 

ellenoirify Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 10:00am

yep

ellenoirify Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 10:01am

I did use corn starch and I know that a butter knife is not the best way to cut fondant but as I mentioned it in the description: I´m just a hobby baker I´m not a pro and I don´t have professional equipment

ellenoirify Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 10:01am

Thank you :)

ellenoirify Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 10:02am

Really? Omg thanks for telling me !!!!

ellenoirify Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 10:12am

I JUST WANT TO CLEARIFY SOME THINGS:

 

 

1) I´m from Austria so excuse me if my grammar isn't correct

2) I´m NOT a pro and my tutorials are just for inspiration purpose and to show beginners that it is not hard to decorate cupcakes/cakes nicely
3) I´m more of a visual type so I think it is easier if you just see how I do it. I´m not a fan of people talking and talking and talking in tutorials because you see how they do it anyway. 


So please remember that before you post something mean. Thanks.

Smckinney07 Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 10:48am

AThanks for sharing your tutorial. The point of sharing is to educate and learn, as you stated. Many of the people who posted are very good at what they do.

When asking for feedback or constructive criticism, as you have with your poll, you're going to get it.

I do most of my fondant cutouts with an exacto knife, I keep meaning to order a scalpel-either will yield better results.

810whitechoc Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 11:29am

Good on you for having a go, but as has been suggested buy yourself an exacto or small sharp paring knife you will get much cleaner cuts.

Ah ok now i get it :party:

I will definitely buy a special knife in my local bake-decoration store thanks for the tip!

And yes austria is pretty cool :)

cakefat Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 12:36pm

you can buy an exatco knife at your local hardware/home improvement store- you don't need to buy at the cake decorating supply shop- it will be probably a lot more expensive at the cake supply shop. 

 

Are you in school still or a teenager?

 

PS- I love Austria too!

you are smarter than you think--i was amazed that you did not cut your mat--if you 'upgrade' to an exacto knife you will ruin your mat--so there's that too--

 

since you are out of the country--the copyright issue lessens--especially since this is just a 'for fun' video

 

since you are helpful and sweet and giving and made some cute videos i think you are purely inspirational and deserve a big round of applause--

 

*=D> applause

Awwww the last sentence was SOO sweet of you :oops::grin:

OH! And of course I´d be happy if you share my youtube channel with friends, family, enemy (jk), on social media,…

ellenoify,  many people will use UTube to find tutorials for many cake decorating ideas - even some pros, so the more professional the video the better.  Using exacto knifes and/or razor blades for sharp edges, using a circle cutter instead of a glass will help.  Making sure your fondant doesn't come across sticky (very unappetizing). There are mats that handle these sharp blades nicely - Google self healing mat.  They are inexpensive and worth the money.  Don't film with jewelry on (your bracelet) as it's distracting.

 

You asked for feedback and this is the place to get it.  You won't always get rainbows but you will get some pretty useful info, even if it's tough.  It can only make you better.

AI don't understand why people feel the need to make people feel less of themselves. Does it matter if she is a beginner or a pro? If she is a beginner does that mean you can't learn something from her? I dare say no matter how advanced you think are there is ALWAYS something new to learn from ANYONE. I don't care how advanced I am I'm always on the lookout to learn new things and I don't discount anyone because they are a "beginner". There is no need to tear someone down and make them feel less of themselves, her tutorial was cute and if it's not on your level than fine keep it moving but don't bash her for it and yea ok so she put the voting buttons that's still no reason to offer up negativity, either you like it or you don't. Plain and simple. If she asked for more detailed critique that would be different and even then you don't offer critique in a demeaning manner. This is supposed to be a forum to encourage and help one another regardless of what level you are.

i liked the video!!! good job :)

Thank you! I know that I will get criticism here but I just want it to be constructive! 
Like yours! Because some people right "oh that´s a bad video" but they don´t tell me what I can do better so really thank you :)

OMG that is exactly what I mean! Thank you very much :)

JWinslow Posted 4 Dec 2013 , 2:40pm

IMO, I don't believe anyone was being mean.  You got some tough and sometimes blunt feedback - nothing wrong with that, just hard to hear sometimes.  We all have had to listen to the tough stuff from time to time.  It's made me much better.  Now, when I ask for critique I expect the cold hard truth.  There's always something I didn't expect that I can correct to bring things up a level.

 

You have quiet a few videos out there so maybe it's time to watch them to see what others are trying to tell you.  The more you critique yourself, the better your next one will be.
