Thank you again! I'll let you know how the first attempt goes next month. If it goes well then I very well may add this book to my Christmas list! LOL! Cat
PS...for those of you who are JUST joining cake club...THIS is why I love it....everyone here is SO ready to help, to teach, to share the work of caking with everyone else. It's not like anyone here is stingy with their time or knowledge. No "secret" recipes, no "hidden" techniques. Just ask and everyone is willing to help or lead you to someone who can!   Have a great weekend everyone!   Cat
MB, I read your tips and think I will try the "heat half of the chocolate till melted then add in the rest off of the heat to melt". That sure sounds like the safest way to go about it! If I run into trouble I'll make sure to yell for help! LOL! Your page said you can combine the chocolate clay with fondant? Is there a particular percentage of clay to fondant??? I'm thinking, for my birthday cake, of chocolate clay "pieces" but for future reference in actually covering a...
MB! I think I'm going to try your modeling chocolate recipe for my birthday cake! I looks easy to do once you figure out the right formula...may be coming to you for help if it doesn't work out. But I like to try out new stuff on our own cakes and this is new for me! 3 years from now we'll be celebrating our 30th and I want to do a tiered cake...I was going to make chocolate fondant but this looks really good too and might actually be easier to work with...I'll let you...
Morgan,   I can't wait to see the whole thing! I've never used bubble tea straws before...always wooden skewers instead...too antsy! LOL!   Cat
MattyEatsCakes, Oh no! Making my own cake it quite the treat! My younger daughter is a caker so she usually makes it...it's the rare year that I actually get to make it myself. I love being able to make whatever I want and eat whatever I want and not have to cater to any one else's needs. I can only think of one other time I have gotten to do this in the past 15 years! So I'm excited..have no idea what I'm doing but...LOL!   I am SO sorry to hear about your baby! I do...
Hi everyone!   Last week's cake delivery was quite strange. I actually ended up delivering the cakes to the clients home instead of at the party because of the heat but the client wasn't there, her sister was there with the kids who mobbed the cakes. I had to pretty much police them while telling the sister how to cut them. I didn't hear a single word from the client but had a friend (the person who had recommended me to this client) tell me that other than the legos...
Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome to share their week, photos of their work, ask for help or provide help if they can!   Cat
RugbyChick..Wow! by hand! That's amazing...it's just perfection!   Sweet: That is one great dessert table! Everything is simply wonderful! But your Eiffel Tower cake is the Cake of the Week!! AMAZING work! Did you pipe out the royal and then puzzle piece it together? I'm doing a Paris themed cake later this year (my last of the year in fact) and I truly don't have the guts to do that topper! LOL! That's just a show stopper!   OT! LOVE it! What a bright cheery...
Thank you everyone for your kind replies. I started out as a nature/wildlife photographer years ago in my early 20's and moved to parties and then to cakes after our son was born 13 years ago. So taking back up my photography as a travel photographer is taking a small step back but it's back to what I love. This is actually a change we have been talking about for about 18 months but my daughter didn't want to give up. But life changes and my hand did the final placing of...
