Hi Mel sorry first time on today so maybe too late. Just confirmed with DH how he did this. He revised his plan and instead of a groove in the drum above he cut a circle out of the "mini" drum using a fret saw. He glued the resulting collar onto the larger drum above ( carefully centred of course). He thinks he used Pritstick but any contact adhesive would work. The vase below slotted snugly into the collar which he said gave better stability. He was an engineer in his...
Mel not sure If I'm getting this correctly but when I used the vase as separators on my last wedding cake, DH stuck a drum which was just slightly bigger than the vase onto the drum above (centred of course.) He cut a groove into this small drum which was tight enough to secure the vase into but not so tight it would be hard for the organisers to lift the tier off to serve.
Hi all just dipping in while at work!! Naughty!   Sounds like many have been in the wars so hoping for improvements soon.   Kathy - fab news on your daughter, Barbara great work losing the pounds. As you say when you go on holiday in the heat you see some horrifying sights - why do some people just "let it all hang out" as soon as the sun shines?   Jean delighted to hear the news on your friend. Long may it continue.   Jo sorry to hear about your cake troubles - I...
I subscribe to both. I think both are good value. PWC now down to £8.99 /mth or £75/yr. I too am a Dawn Butler fan
Great to hear the BUG HUGS scared the demon away Tiddy.   Fabulous cakes all - I see Lizzy's has made favouries with her book cake. Not surprised!   Just found this blog which has a good tip for sticking things to cakes. Also free download about ganache for those who are still having troubles. http://cakes-by-karen.blogspot.com.au/   I would post it to the other site but don't have the link here at work. (Whoops did I say work??)
Kuushi - you really don't need to freeze it if it is for Wednesday evening as long as you cover it so the air doesn't dry it. You have no need to doubt yourself. As everyone has previously said she was trying it on.
Hi cakey peeps. What do you all use for storing equipment like cutters, veiners etc. I currently have mine in large poly boxes segregated into flower stuff which includes veiners, wires etc; moulds; Patchwork Cutters, general equipment like impression mats small rolling pins extruders etc? However I would like something where I could store at least my flower cutters and veiners by flower type as I am getting fed up having to delve through deep boxes to find things   I am...
Hi Newstreet, mI think you will be surprised (I was) at how much cake is left after carving. I add on about £8 for sundries including electricity - no idea of this covers but my cake was in for over 2 hrs today! I would just offer a simplified version. A 6 yr old will just look at the initial impact.
Hi Newstreet, great news for your family. Hope after a few days you might be able to relax a little and sleep normally. I've spent the day making a birthday cake for a friend, not decorated just choc overload with cigarillos. Same recipe as you Newstreet, always works perfectly, just have to adjust timings. Then working on nappy (diaper) cake and thought I would try the Lindy Smith recipe as it has to be carved. I made an 11" square and it isn't deep enough for a bag so...
[/quote]Hi JeanDo you subscribe to Paul Bradford? He did a Ferrari tutorial which I used for my Ferrari (my Avatar). He uses 2x10" cakes and by the time it is carved you would be pushed to feed 12. Are you sure you haven't underestimated the cost as £27 doesn't seem much. If I had been selling mine it should have been £100-£120. It's a lot of work. Looked fab but took a lot of time. It also had edible images on it for the sponsorship logos so if you are including them you...
