I made this chalk board cake and did not have luck using candy melts for the writing.  I ended up painting the writing on with white gel coloring and a paint brush.  Dab thepaint brush on a paper towel before writing so the white looks thinner and more chalky
I need to make heart shaped cake but don't have a heart shaped cake pan and would rather not have to buy one.  I have seen some pictures online where you take a square pan and round pound to make a heart shape.  Like in this picture. Has anyone done it?  It looks like it should work fine but it is for a client so I need to make sure it ends up looking good.   TIA!
I think one of the the hardest parts of cake decorating for me is finding a way to combine themes.  Maybe it is because I really don't like combining themes on a cake!  So I need help...   I have someone who wants a cake to serve between 50-75 people (don't have the exact number yet) so we are talking about 2 to 3 tiers.  They want the cake to include a race track and cars, the letters A, B, and C, and some religious items.   Help!
Happy this bad boy is done with!! Came out great but was so nerve wracking to make
Awesome!  Thanks for info!
There are two different types of wilton giant cupcake pans listed on amazon. They are both listed under this listing. http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-2105-5038-Giant-Cupcake-Pan/dp/B000UPRAXA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1403283472&sr=8-2&keywords=giant+cupcake+pan Does anyone know the difference betweeb them?
Thanks!  Was not planning on reusing the fondant once I take it off :)
I usually have no issues with Satin Ice fondant but yesterday I used red Satin Ice and it gave me tons of issues.  It was ripping as i was rolling it out and was very hard to work with.  I had to cover two pieces of cakes with it and only managed to get one part covered and I really don't like how it looks. I never took fondant off a cake after it has been sitting so long with it covered - is it too risky to to take off and try and recover it?  My other idea was to just...
Neither :) It is fondant that I cut with a cutter and then cut the white fondant with a slightly smaller cutter and put it on top of the green.
Can anyone share a firm chocolate cake that would be good for carving? Bonus if it is non-dairy!   ty!
