I don't use fondant, and they REALLY don't want it. The other option was royal but they weren't to happy about the cake having to be taken apart just to cut the slices and with the amount of flowers going on this cake (750+) they most certainly would have to come off first. They don't need to be hard; actually I'd like them to be soft enough that they can be eaten without breaking a tooth. The instructions call for rolled fondant and it makes no mention of adding gumtex...
I am making a wedding cake later this summer that is covered in fondant daisies. The couple hate fondant and I offered to make the flowers out of rolled buttercream instead. Only I'm not really sure how to make the daisies. I always make mine from royal. Is there a tutorial or instructions floating around that could help me learn how to make these?
Oh I'm so so sorry that happened. Did you use any filling? I made a cake for my dh to take to work with him. He called me from work and said that it had slid apart while he drove to work. I think I used way too much filling and the cake layers just drifted apart as a result. I suppose the cake could have been too soft even for the dowel rods to hold together. Regardless it was a gorgeous cake and you still have a before picture to show off
Not a school carnival but I have donated a cake for a parent teacher night sort of thing. I guess all the parents are supposed to bring something to eat. One of my clients asked me if I would be willing to donate one for her to bring. I put it in a box with one of my cake box stickers on it and a card tapped to the front. I got one client out of that.
I've never let mine set out until room temp. I've even done them straight from the freezer. The buttercream sweats sometimes doing it that way but it's never caused any problems.
I have one client who always orders marble cake. I have tried to get her to do something different but she is convinced marble is the safest route. I don’t get that. If someone doesn’t like white cake they still aren’t going to eat it just because the cake does have a little chocolate mixed in or vise versa. But that is what she wants and she is one of my biggest clients so I continue to make them for her. One of these days I think I’m going to make her a little 6...
OMG bella I would have been super PO’d. That’s just mean. I’ve got a consultation this Saturday and I’ve spent quite a bit of money buying the ingredients to make the cupcakes and fillings for the tasting. The consultation is totally free and I’d be beyond mad if they were just using me. Wow I can’t believe someone would do that.
Grooms cakes are so much fun!! You can always tell when the bride has picked out the grooms cake because it will be all frilly and girly and not reflect the groom at all. It’s his cake, let it be his. The last wedding I attended the groom was addicted to the Star Wars Battlefront game so his cake was a giant Darth Vader head. Everyone got a good laugh from it.I’ve never actually seen the grooms cake away from the brides cake. I’ve always seen them next to each other. ...
I called my counties health department and spoke with one of the health inspectors. It varies by county in some states.
I hate that. You set up a time with someone and you run around like crazy trying to get everything done by the pickup time and then, no show. If I'd paid a lot of money for something you can bet I'd be there at the appointed time to get it, especially if it were food.A customer did that to me with a Christmas cake. She was supposed to pick it up by 11am and when 1pm came around she still hadn’t picked it up. I called and she was just lounging around the house and gave...
