Wow Ducky! That's an awesome cake.
Paperfishes, you did an excellent job! If you keep practicing you will get better. My piping is still little to be desired but I've made great strides since trying 2 years ago.     This week as been less about cake and more about putting out fires. I've been through supplier hell this week. One supplier completely forgot to load my shipment on the truck and they only come once a month. This left me high and dry as I had to buy 3 cases of vegan powdered sugar from the...
  Okay, I must have miss calculated somewhere because I made no where near that amount of frosting this weekend for over 300 cupcakes. I have to go back to my notes when use to make smaller batches. Let me check on it and get back to you. Ignore my previous post.
 What type of buttercream are you using. Since I primarily use American Buttercream for my cupcakes, which tends to be much sweeter, I use about half as much as I would with a Swiss or Italian Meringue buttercream. Most people put a lot more frosting on their cupcakes than I do. For my American buttercream I use the recipe that essentially is 1 cup of fat to 1 lb of powdered sugar. When I use that recipe it makes enough frosting for a about 30 cupcakes for me. So if I...
Funny that you say that, because I find the colored Satin Ice fondant to work quite well, even the ivory, but not white.
Yes, something has changed! It not what it use to be. I've inquired several times and they ask for the lot number to check it out and they always come back with some tips they have posted on their website. They keep saying they haven't changed anything, but I don't believe them. It only does an okay job if I have an old bucket of Satin Ice that has been sitting around for about 6 months. 
Batterup, I love your Halloween cake it is awesome. I must say I love watching how you've grown over the past months with your decorating abilities and how you keep trying and practicing. One day I will have the guts to build a structure to support a 3D cake.    Rosie, your cake is lovely! Nice drop lines!   Here are a few things I worked on this weekend.   A baby shower cake for a dear friend in my mommy's club. The theme was "she's going to pop". Every time someone...
Goodnight everyone! It's been busy, before I go to bed I thought I'd check in.  So far over 300 cupcakes, 4 cakes down and 2 to go. I think the adrenaline has me hyped. This is the first week I've had a baking partner. It's been great, I love having company while baking and decorating. I'll post pictures tomorrow. It's been a mix of things from 1st birthday's, to a kid's gym open house, to baby showers.    Hope your nights go smoothly!
No it isn't. The sugar in it isn't vegan. 
Cat, I'm so glad you were not out of any money.    Nora's mom, what is the fountain made out of, that is so cool!   Batterup, I can't wait to meet you at the show! Are you taking any classes? I take that back, you will probably be manning your table the entire time.  I forgot how soon that show is coming up, I need to think of something to enter.     Here a a couple I cakes I did. The first is for the celebration of the birthdays of three science reporters. It was a...
