Cazza and Cat, I think I have you beat on being the worst at wiring flowers!  I don't know what I do wrong, but they always end up starting to unravel at the bottom of the wire.  I just finished doing a cake for my niece's bridal shower that I'll be going to in a few minutes.  I was suprised that the little "spray" I think it's called turned out pretty good.  I still have to figure out how to download pics.  The cake didn't work out like I wanted it to, but I think she'll...
Have you read through the "Everything You Wanted to Know About Buttercream" thread on this site?  It's an old thread, long, but has a lot of really good information on it.  It'll take a lot of reading, but may prove to be worth your time.
I see some very pretty cakes up again this week.  Great job everyone!  Cara, it may not be your favorite, but as long as the customer is happy...  I think it's cute.
Can't beat the original recipe on the back of Baker's Chocolate.  The best in the world!
Ok MB, I have to ask....what does the CIA stand for?  This sounds like a really good book I'd love to get my hands on!  Want to make sure I order the right one.
Oh, how cute!  I don't blame you for not going down in price.  That elephant is adorable!  I do have to admit, however, that before I got into cake decorating, I didn't know how much work went into them either.  Starting to decorate as a hobby, I found out there's more work put into decorating than most people know.  I don't do the detailed cakes you pros do, but there's a lot more prep that goes into a cake than I was aware of before.
LOL, howsweet!  I'm also working on a diet and am hoping to get this extra weight off as quickly as possible.  But as I stated earlier, I have the biggest sweet tooth in the world and that is my biggest downfall.  I love almost all things sweet....except chocolate.  Chocolate is not one of my downfalls (unless it's brownies or german chocolate cake); chocolate is one sweet that for some reason I don't like that much unless it's milk chocolate.  Dark, semisweet, etc., just...
You can still love the thread.  99% of it is still good and what will be added after will also be good.  We are the ones at fault if we let a few "questionable" comments ruin the enjoyment we've gotten and will continue to get out of this thread.  I'm mostly a reader and don't contribute a lot because I'm a hobby baker and don't experience what most of you do, but I still get a lot out of reading your input to these threads....some is advice, some is good laughter, but it...
asyouwish, the people I used to work with did the same thing to my husband.  He was always thin (before he retired!) and when my fellow employees finally met him, they asked how come he wasn't 300-400 pounds!  I used to bake all the birthday and celebration goodies for work and I always got lots of compliments about how good everything was.  They just assumed that my husband partook of everything I baked and, therefore, should "look" like he did.  He has always loved my...
FromScratch, thanks for sharing those recipes.  They all sound delicious!
