I agree! I was fortunate enough to visit AUI in May when I was in Maryland and got to bring some home. I just bought a white and black since I was travelling. 2.2lbs is $7.17 for white and the colors are $7.72. I just did a cake with the white the other night and my friend just started eating the fondant because it was so delicious. It is stretchier and definitely has a "marshmallow" feel to me. I usually use Fondarific but am getting ready to order the FondArt for...
Some people carve or I've read that you can use different sizes of cakes so have a 6" on the bottom and an 8" on the top - still some carving needed probably. You can google "tapered cake" I got this - http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-680330.htmlor thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEz997KrbkQGood luck!
Thanks everyone! I know she bought the Wilton heart topper and it is a simple outdoor (August - ugh!) wedding and I want the cake to meet her expectations and mine! So I'll see how big that topper is and how the proportions will look. srkmilklady thanks for the photo that is almost exactly the style of what she is looking for!
Does anyone have a two tiered cake with a 10 and 12 inch cake in their gallery? I have a bride on a budget (shocking) and she wants roses cascading and I just don't know if it will really need a 3rd tier or not to look right and if I should adjust my sizes to get the same or close to amount of servings but in 3 tiers instead of 2? I'd like to see what these two sizes look like so I can decide. Thanks!
The roof looks like you could use an upside down icecream cone or if you need something bigger you could use a styrofoam cone then attach the fondant/gumpaste to that? RKT would work as well I just think they slump somewhat with the weight of the fondant. Good luck!
I just did some quick research on line and I think if you could afford the initial investment you need to buy your balls & baskets in bulk and on line. In looking some 6" balls would only be around $3 a piece. Hope you figure it out! I totally get it, I still have my day job as well!
