I have 2 1/2 sheets in the oven right now, one is made with the old formula and one is made with the new formula. Everything else is exactly the same. I'll post my results to let you know if I see any difference between them.
I've done this w/RKT, and then 'spackled over' in BC to smooth out some of the bumpiness before covering w/fondant. Worked great.
Anyone have any experience with pizza ovens?
The restaurant that I bake at has just brought in 2 beautiful large pizza ovens and has suggested that I use them for my baking. So, I tried it this week, scared to death that the bottoms would scorch sitting right on the stones.

Lay your wax paper over the pictures and trace with melted chocolate. Go back over it after the first layer has set to add some extra dimension.
When you put the filling on the cake, be sure that it is as high as your dam. Otherwise, the cake settles a little and your dam squishes out slightly, creating a bulge. Hope this helps!
