I also use foam core boards between my layers and hammer a sharpened wooden dowel all the way to the bottom until it cannot go any further. Before hammering them through, I measure the height of the cake and cut the dowel 1" shorter. I counter sink it with a smaller piece of dowel and put a icing "plug" where the hole is. I get them from the craft section at Walmart or the wooden dowel section from Lowes or Home Depot.I have NEVER had a cake slide (knock on wood) when...
Don't quote me on this, but I have not seen white edible ink. I have an edible image printer and none of the ink cartridges are white. I'm sorry but other than that, I don't have an answer to your question.Anyone out there that can actually help??
I'm pretty happy with the one I bought on eBay. The sellers name is tcpglobal.
If you have an air brush machine you can spray it with a coat of pearl shimmer. I don't use buttercream, only non dairy whipped topping (Pastry Pride) and it looks lovely. Also, I think I've seen areosol cans of shimmer on line at many cake supply websites if you don't have an air brush machine.If you want it shiny, I've also seen online cans of spray edible laquer.I hope that helps!
I dip them in chocolate also before inserting into cakes
My trick is to bend the wire into an "L" down towards the end, about 1 inch from the end. This stops it from swaying around. Then dip it in chocolate and let dry. And poke it into the cake, then give it a 1/4 turn. It works every time!
Meh, grocery store cakes at best, with basic decorationing. No skills required to produce these cakes. And the icing is bulging on the green cake where it shows it sliced.
Hahaha Ekaba totally (and unwittingly) hijacked this thread! The original post wasn't even about cupcakes.
YES!! I learned this the hard way. I accidentally bought low fat cream cheese and it was very runny. It was yucky, I tossed it.
If you look at my pictures, the eyes on Oddie the Donut cake (pg 1) and the Betty Boop Cake and Monster high cakes (pg3) all have this technique used on them on the toppers. Good Luck!
