But, just to be clear, I do appreciate a healthy layer of buttercream under that sweet, chewy stuff!
Some of the biggest fun I ever had was watching kids pull the fondant off a cake once they realized that everything "sproinging"off of it was edible. The adults were horrified and the kids thought that I was the bomb. I think if people would just look at fondant in its own category, they would realize it's just a sweet piece of chewy stuff. That's fine dining in my book.
Just gotta clock in on this one. It's's cake.....don't like sweet? Eat a french fry.
Seriously? I bought red and black SI because those colors are a b*tch to make and I really like them.
I had the same question recently and found that any cinnamon oil I tried had the "candy" cinnamon flavor. I wound up using really really finely ground cinnamon, but you could still see it. So, I gave up the fight and sprinkled more on the top. Mine was just for banana-nut cupcakes, though, so I didn't have the decorative issues. Was pretty yummy, though.........
That was exactly my point. I have zero head for business. Take that back - I have zero interest in business. I am a researcher/statistician by day and the cake thing was to be my counter-balance to keep me from going insaner (not a typo - already a bit insane.)I think that once I did one cake and heard all the "omg - you should do this for money....blah blah blah blah) I lost my head for a second. I simply do not care a bit about getting rich of cakes, even in the...
I think it's important to remember that people simply do not know what it takes to crank out these types of cakes. I know this, because I was one of them. I decided I could do it for family and friends and give people the benefit of high-end cakes for low-end prices. I felt all philanthropic and crap. But, let me tell you, after trying to do three cakes in one weekend (I have a full-time job and hour away from my home) I almost commited cake-icide. I cannot fault the...
I did notice that on the Big Sweet Things page you have the phrase "Whether you choose to incorporate the lace on your dress, the colour theme, or the flowers in your bouquet." as a stand-alone sentence. It's actually just a sentence fragment. Not a huge deal, but I was a technical writer for years and I tend to zero in on things like that. Also, I have to know - what is a Jamaican Black Cake?
I have had fantastic results using whatever juice or drink mix as a replacement liquid in my batter.
If you think they might, just make you some wrappers to go around them. My cupcakes are never that pretty so I found a way to disguise them! And, you can make them to perfectly match the theme of the party.
