Edna,Since I've never worked with piping gel, OR gold dust before, is there any quick tips you can give me on using them together? I'm up for learning and trying new things and I will purchase these two things tomorrow.I did see one of your cakes awhile back that you did with gold on it. It was beautiful.Thanks for your help.
Okay, I happened onto this thread and am overwhelmed by the possibilities. I want to make some of these today! Where can I find the first original recipe (oe at least an easy one for a first timer to try out)? I need the main instructions too as I see that there are many variations.I'm glued here waiting for a response.
Thank you very much. Where do you usually poke the hole? On the side maybe, where you can't see so much? When do you fill it in? I thought I might use the woodgrain mat on the coffin top; do I do this after it's on the cake or when I roll it out?
It's amazing that it would take more than 3 pounds of fondant to cover a less than 11x15 sheet, BUT i will take you word and order the 5 pounder. Thanks a bunch. How thick do put the buttercream on before you put the fondant on? You are supposed to chill the cake after buttercream layer before you cover it too, right?
