You could try using the template from Martha Stewart for the Paper Peony. I tried it this past Mother's Day. I made my peony from 50/50 mix of Wilton Fondant and my gumpaste I make. I should have let the petals fall open more. You could use white card stock for your template to cut out the petals with a exacto-knife. I hope this help!http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2027411http://images.marthastewart.com/images/content/web/pdfs/2007Q2/2169_051507_peonypetals.pdf
Can this printer be used with edible ink cartridges? If yes, what would be the cartridge to buy. I was thinking of asking Santa for this for Christmas. It is on sale for $49.99. If not I will wait to buy the iP3600. Thanks
I have had this question for over a year, I applied on-line to become a Wilton instructor. I got an e-mail and then some time after that, I received another e-mail stating that here in the Chicago area there weren't many openings that they would hold my info, I guess. Well, this pass Summer I taught cake decorating to kids 6-18 y/o, 2 days a week for free. I was surprised that they kept attending. The classes ran from June to August. My question is: can I become a Wilton...
Oops thanks for the comments, thank you jenscreativity.
I thought it was me, but I too am having trouble with posting in the forums, either I cannot get the comments at all or I can't open the e-mail responses.I used cake mix with 1/2 cup egg substitute with just 1 real egg white and added other ingredients to doctor the taste. The cake was yummmmo. I was so surprised, it was the first cake eaten up before the scratch cakes. I can't believe it.
Your cake is really cute. I made a Turkey cake for the 1st time this year. He came out ok, I made him for me, I have severe allergic reaction to egg yolks. So my "on feathered friend is made from egg whites, he is a chocolate marble cake. I used Wilton sugar sheets for the sign with edible markers. I love making him. My family really enjoyed eating my "yoke-less"cake".   http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2215507Great Job and Best Wishes, sometimes cakes get noticed sometimes...
I hope everyone had a Great Thanksgiving Day. I'm so grateful for all of the info I've read on CC, too many resources to name them all. So to everyone thank you! Happy Thanksgiving!
Made this castle in 1999, trust me no Wilton castle set, just round pans and cleaned concentrated juice cans. I did use Wilton decorations LOL!  http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1489774
I've stenciled with black BC frosting before with no bleeding. Did not use the wet spatula method, I just thinned down the BC frosting so that it was easy to smooth on the BC cake I made. I found it easy to either use can chocolate frosting died black or buying premade black frosting and thinning it down with a little water or milk. I hope this help. I've stenciled in red, blue and white. I stencil on chilled cakes, never room temp.
I discovered a while back that some family members were eating gumpaste flowers on the wedding cake I made for my God-Daughter (Castle Cake), in that particular instance, those flowers were commercially made, they could not had a flavor to them. Since then, I've tried Wilton gumpaste that you add water to, didn't like it. This year I started making my gumpaste from scratch with lemon juice just in case family and friends would eat the decorations, believe me they do. I...
