I acutally put on a second layer of fondant(MMF) one time when mine was too thin.
Cutting a cake IS messy! I think that is why many venues take them to the kitchen to cut for weddings, etc. I usually remove the top tier and set to still display. If all the tiers are the same flavor, just start at the top to serve (I also use Debi's method, and LOVE the cake comb.) Work your way down. Some people like to serve the bottom first, so any leftovers are more likely intact layers. I guess you would lift off the upper tiers as one, and set aside. If...
[url]When someone says they cannot afford you/you're too expensive, etc. You say:"That's okay. Everyone has a budget they have to work with. Not everyone can afford a custom cake. Thanks for thinking of me." [/url]I'd be careful with the "you can't afford me" reference. Customer education about why the price is what it is may bring them back, after they have mulled over the quote. Don't count them out, or offend them!
Leah, how's it going with the cake ball roller? did you get it worked out?
Almost all done with a princess theme storybook cake. Used Wilton large cake pan, 1/2 choc 1/2 white. Cricut cutouts of princess and castle (played off and on all week to perfect, they came out great!), RI roses and other flowers. Just have bottom border to go, then place bookmark and figures. 22 crown cookies to match are ready to bag.I had to stay up late tonight to get most done, since my new granddaughter is spending the day with us tomorrow while her parents help...
Thanks for the info, tiggy2! I used coupons to buy two sheets to play. I will check out the icingimages for next time!
I agree with 12-9-6Just out of interest, is she still paying for the contracted amount?
I just finished cutting several items- see my post in the How To section. http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-727776.html Today's success makes me ready to try more. I have used it a few times since getting, but today was the best.I can't imagine cutting cookies with it. I make decorated cookies, and there is no way to get the nice thick ones with the cricut. Moravian sugar cookies, maybe! I have been thinking about using the machine to cut a template for...
I just finished cutting both homemade gumpaste and Wilton Sugar Sheets today. My gumpaste I rolled very thin, then left out to dry for 20-30 minutes or so. They were a bit dry-ish on top, but the scraps still kneaded up and could be rerolled. I cut the castle and princess from the Birthday Cakes cartridge at 5" and 4.5". I also cut a scalloped oval at 1.75, and a fancy O at 1.25 from other cartridges.Then I pulled out my Sugar Sheet to cut lettering. I finally found...
Great to know! The cakes are lovely!
