I've been doing a lot of research on Cottage Food Law (a law that allow you to sell baked goods from home) and as most of you may know, we do not have one in NJ. In 2009 Sugar_Plum_Fairy and Stephaniescakenj started an extensive topic on the CC forum. They fought, along with tons of other CC members to get a Cottage Food Law passed in NJ. Their fight was somewhat successful. They were able to get a few senators to introduce a bill to legislature on June 15, 2009. ...
I have to make a cake that looks like a lion holding a cake. To do this I was going to decorate a 14 inch, round, fondant covered cake and make the head out of gumpaste the same way I would a sugar plaque. My question is, how would you attach the head on the edge of the cake without it falling off the side of the cake?

The wave then looked like it had foam on the top....you can see this on my margaritaville cake in my gallery if you look very closely Anyway, I'm telling you all this because I think if you make the water coming out of the hose out of blue piping gel and then mixed in a...
What does the winnie the pooh cake look like exactly? I ask because there may be a way to decorate it so that he is wearing a fireman's jacket instead of his usual yellow t-shirt.
Thanks everyone! To answer your question...I didn't use doug's method. I tried his out during a practice run and it worked but I wanted the cake to be carved from 1 cake so that's what I did. I carved it from a 2 layer 10 inch round cake. It came out smoother and was more stable that way.My customer was thrilled and I may be getting a lot more clients from this.
Well I finally finished the cake and it looks like a fortune cookie! My buyer was very happy with it. I have the picture posted in my gallery if you want to take a look.[/img]
Thanks....I didn't think it would work but I figured that it couldn't hurt to ask.
I'm doing a cake for a bridal shower that looks like a chinese lantern. The problem is that my customer wants whipped cream icing instead of buttercream. I was wondering if my decorative details (made from fondant) will stick to the whipped cream or should I just play it safe and use buttercream. What do you think?
