I was contacted on Sunday to do a local bridal show on May 7th! I have a wedding cake and baby shower for Saturday May 6th. I need some quick and easy ideas for a 2 tier round dummy, 3 tier round dummy and 3 tier square regular cake. I don't have any square styro, so I have to use real cake which sucks, but anyway......

The things I had to do were 1) get a...
Thank You!
If I use alcohol (specifically whiskey) to replace the water in a cake, do I use the same amount?
The more b/c transfers I do, the better they get. I place my picture with a piece of glass (from photo frame) over it, then a piece of wax paper on top of the glass. Out line the picture on the wax paper, fill in, then put a somewhat thick coat of b/c (something light & fluffy works best, colored to match your base color on the cake so that it blends in) on top of my filled in outline and spread it out. This helps to make it even & give it enough thickness to hold up when...
