i have a friend who wants me to make him a martini shaped cake for his birthday. i did a small cake to scale but not too pleased with it. other friends saw the sample cake and said it looked great. does anyone have any ideas as to what i can do? i would like suggestions on not only design but decorating it as well. i would like to make it look like a clear glass with sapphire blue liquid, but not sure how this could be accomplished. i'm having a mental block. please...
Thank you both cake diva and bklynsuze for all your input. I also thought that adding the last layer is what made my transfer stick out. The cake is for friday so hopefully i can upload the pictures soon!
I need some help with BCTs; I have tried twice to do them, and was not pleased with the outcome. For some reason I can't get them to be flat on the cake, mine seem to jump out as in 3-D and sometimes I guess I didn't smooth it out correctly and you can see the actual rows where i piped in the color. I have a cake I need to do in two weeks with cowboy boots and hat, and I was thinking of making them out of BCTs. I would appreciate any and all suggestions.thanks, nestle

Jenn 123, I would have loved to save time on these, but my friend is very exacting. She didn't want the faces or pillow made out of buttercream, she wanted it just like the book only all in pink. But yes, if the person you are making them for isn't particular, then I would do BC as much as I could.
Jenn 123, Since these were for my best friend I only charged her $35.00. My husband said I better not charge that for anyone else. It was a lot of work. The good thing about this occasion was she knew she was having a girl and so she wanted all the blankets pink. So something all in one color and using MMF I would charge $1.50 per cupcake. If it requires the blankies in different colors then I would do $2.00 per cupcake. Using MMF really cuts your cost and the taste...
thank you cake fairy!!!!!!!!!I will definately try that next time, although now that I saw the post on the chocolate transfers that squirrelly cakes posted I may try that as well.
