Yuck what a mess I'm glad you were able to get it done but I feel for you having to go through all that. Back in 2007 we had an ice storm here. We lost power for 15 days. After that we bought a generator that stays connected to the house. When our power goes out it comes on. If you experience this sort of thing often enough you should look into getting one. I live in tornado alley so if the power isn’t going off because of the ice in the winter it’s out because...
I don’t think I’m a cake snob. There is cake I like and cake I don’t. I don’t like Wal-Mart or Pricecutter’s cakes. They are very dry and the icing they use is nasty. I’ve had a slice of wedding cake from a VERY popular bakery in the city that was horrid. The cake looked beautiful but it tasted terrible. And I’ve told the story about the entire 5 tier wedding cake that was thrown out because none of the guests would eat it. Also from a very upscale bakery. I used...
We always use matte. We think it looks better. We have cards for our real-estate business and our technology consulting business. Our technology cards have all my dh’s Microsoft and CompTIA certifications on them and their logos (which are pretty tame) but the company who designed our cards printed all those texts glossy and raised up off the cards. It looks really neat. We don’t have a logo for our real-estate business, it’s more of a “here’s how to get in touch with...
Ooooo I like your site. I love how you've got your gallery set up, with all the pictures right there and I can click on one and it pops up in it's own picture box. I hate it when I have to scroll through some slide show or I can only see one cake at a time. I like being able to see them all at once and pick which one I'd like to see up close. I don't do cakes at your level so I probably don't have much to offer as far as professional pictures go. But what I did was...
Your cake is BEAUTIFUL!!! I can see the cracks but really that isn't what I'd call a ruined cake by any means. I do what TR suggested and stack when I get to my destination. I've read way too many horror stories on here to try and deliver a totally assembled cake.
I have a couple of cookbooks (new ones, not a million years old, passed down from granny ones ) that say adding cornstarch to AP flour is a sub for cake flour. So that's probably why so many people do it. Until this thread I had no idea it wasn't the same thing I can find cake flour everywhere, of course I live in the US. What I can't find is bread flour. I use AP instead but I'm sure I'm not getting as good a texture as I would if I had the right flour.
Very good to know Gatorcake
I think the Amish get a pass around here (Missouri). I’m not sure why though. At the last FM I went to there were two ice cream stands set up. One was being run by some Amish boys making ice cream out of this big barrel they were spinning around and the other was being run by a local ice cream shop. The line to the Amish stand was sooooooo long. They couldn’t keep up and were sending people away and instead of going right across the way to the other stand people were...
I agree with the majority on this, I’d still give her the discount. It’s not like she’s trying to take advantage of you maliciously. She lost her job unexpectedly and now gets an email from you about having to pay full price for a cake you both had already agreed to do at a discount. It’s kind of harsh. Maybe you could work out another deal with her. Is there something else she could do for you that would be worthy of the discount? You never know, she could have...
My family knows I dislike cake so they always get me a big, blueberry pie with vanilla bean ice cream. I can seriously eat the whole thing myself if I'd let me
