I am making a Sesame Street cake for my DS's 3rd birthday. I want to make a small bird's nest for Big Bird. I was thinking that Chow Mein noodles would be perfect. Wondering what would be best for sticking it together...marshmallow fluff (sort of rkt like) or chocolate? What would be easier to work with and stay better?
Thank you for posting the tutorials information! I had already seen those which had led me to my questions above. The notion of handling a 2 layer frosted cake and putting on top of another 2 layer frosted cake seems a little daunting and I am not sure the logistics of it (see the questions above). The cakes in the youtube tutorials are all white wedding cakes, I didn't know how I would do it differently if my bottom tier is blue, my middle tier is beige, and my top...
I am thinking about trying to make a stacked cake for an end of summer party at my house. Was thinking of making 2 or 3 layers. Bottom layer would be ocean theme, middle layer would be sand theme, top layer (or just top of the sand layer) would be grass/flowers/trees. I will likely need the cake to feed around 75 people (give or take 25ish).I have two 9" round pans, a 6" round pan, and just bought a 12" round pan. I figure I will need to bake the 12" and 6" in two...
DininiDee - what kind of chocolate do you use? I need to be ingredient cautious because the birthday boy has a nut/peanut allergy. And also, what is a butter cream icer tip? I don't have a 12x18 pan, but I do have an 11x15, and I assume that I could use that, too, but have more pieces to put together.
I did a big shaped 1 cake for my DS's 1st birthday. Granted I am a novice. Guests were pretty impressed with the cake. I matched the colors to the party decor. I also made a small single layer round cake (4") as the smash cake with a 1 on it.Otherwise, maybe make something that she is into.
I am a very amateur baker, but I offered to make a cake for the winner of a silent auction in my community. The winner's son would like a light saber cake. It needs to feed around 20 kids. What size cake should I bake? What is a good width to cut the strips? If I am putting together cake is there anything I need to do to get it to stay together and not crack the BC on top of it? I was looking in the gallery and there are some good looking light sabers. I don't have...
Giving this a bump...hoping someone can advise about what size cake to bake and size of strips to cut to put it together. thanks.
I am a very amateur baker, but I offered to make a cake for the winner of a silent auction in my community. My friend won the cake for $60! I really want to do a great job for her and her son (the cake will be for his birthday). He would like a light saber cake. It needs to feed around 20 kids. I would much rather give them more than less so they can have leftovers.What size cake should I bake? What is a good width to cut the strips? If I am putting together cake is...
Thanks everyone for your replies. It turns out that I will have to let her down. I have a disk issue in my neck and although I love to bake, my husband says it is one more thing that I don't have to do and therefore I shouldn't do it. (even though I know that making 12 cupcakes and piping on already made BC wouldn't make it worse - it won't help it get better) So, I am a bit sidelined. I may just buy some at a bakery or just promise them to her for her next...
I have seen those cupcake boxes before, but of course not when I want them. I found a box of "Jiffy" yellow cake mix. I have never made that before...hope it tastes decent. Also hoping that I can get a pinkish color with the yellow cake. Aside from the Yellow cake mix they mostly had muffin mixes.
