Thank you so much for all of your ideas and advice. I did add more sprinkles because I didn't think they would stand out as much as I wanted and it was a success! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I wanted to know if anyone has ever tried making Philsbury Funfetti cake as a WASC version before or with the cake mix extender recipe? If so, did it turn out properly? Is it good? I have a funfetti request and wanted to find out if either of these methods would work with the box mix. Thanks!!
I was recently asked to make a number one birthday cake by a friend and I have seen some wonderful ideas here on CC. However, I have one question, some people have used a cake pan in the shape of a #1 while others have carved their cakes from a sheet cake pan. I have NEVER carved a cake before and it makes me a little nervous that I will mess it up...although I am willing to try whatever it is that will give me the "better" cake.

Hi everyone! I am a newbie and would like to know of any icing recipes that can be smoothed out on a cake (to make it look really smooth). I've tried icing with powdered sugar and I can't ever get the granules completey dissolved and it doesn't smooth onto the cake either. Any recipes or ideas on how to get icing super smooth would be most helpful! Thank you!! [b]
