You did your best - she did call to say that he probablywasn't getting out of jail. She just didn't get it that the cakes couldn't be whipped into shape so quickly.Not your fault. The only thing I would have done differently would be to have explained to her the position that she put you in, and that the cake would have to be late and that you would do your best to accomodate her given the circumstances.Don't beat yourself up - it really was not you.
I use the wilton leveler (which I modified) when leveling a cake.
I find that the combination of spending too much time rolling my Satin Ice out in cornstarch and then placing it on the cake results in elephant skin or stretch marks. I find that if I roll it out (not too thin, btw) using a little shortening and then put it on the cake quickly, I don't have a problem.Hth!
Lovely! I love twilight!How were those letters done on the black cake?
That sucks, but luckily, she is not the majority of people. I have a feeling that even when the cake size is specified, people don't actually visualize an 8" or 10" cake and then are shocked at the size (even though it was agreed upon initially).Muggles...
Kims_cake - thank you for the kind words! I am feeling better today and am hoping I have finally turned the corner on this thing. If not, I'll be at the doc on Monday!I think I will have some coffee though...
Amazing!! Thanks!
Thanks for the pasta suggestion. I am going to try this! I like my cakes to be completely edible (save for the dowels and the boards), so I find this idea particularly appealing!
I use cake boards slightly larger than the cake. Then you can flip without a problem.
Let me just say first that I don't do wedding cakes. I guess I'm in the minority, but I thought it was standard to torte. If you do not torte, then don't you end up with way too much cake and not enough filling/icing?
