I would like to send a notice to my frequent customers and need help with the wording. I work from home in a CFL state. I am going to go back to my "real" profession (nursing) and am not going to take any orders after June. I will probably reopen the business on a limited and restructured basis some time in the fall or early winter.Do I give the reason why? Do I need to give parameters for how things will be after I reopen because I am not sure?
I'm not sure if I am understanding the 3D effect that you mean, but if you printed two (or more) copies of the character and then cut out the head/face, put it on a piece if fondant cut to the same and then put that on top of the 1st face? It is a technique used with paper to give 3D effects.HTH
I discovered that I could use the embossing cards found in the scrap booking section to emboss fondant! There are so many of them and they are pretty inexpensive (esp. with a coupon). I know it wouldn't work for the whole cake type of embossing, but I don't do that anyway. I just needed it for small pieces, and didn't want to spend the $$ on one of the big rollers. The cool thing is, you get both sides, so your pattern can be raised up or imprinted in!
I have decorated right out of the freezer, before any condensation forms, but just a simple swirl. If you let them that first, be sure to leave them in whatever wrapping until they are completely thawed so that any condensation stays on the wrapping, not the cupcake.And the butter cream will be fine, just whip it up a bit before you use it!
