Cat, very nice! I can't wait to see the others.   Cazza, that is really pretty and the base you used for the photo is just perfect.   It is a light week for me. Two sheet cakes, one a SpongeBob themed and the other for a swimming party.  I started not to take the Spongebob order because the customer wanted an exact replica of a Decopac/grocery store cake.  She said her daughter wanted a normal looking grocery store cake, and I really wasn't enthusiastic about...
I use both. For white cakes I use cake flour. For chocolate and fruit based cakes (carrot, strawberry, banana, etc) I use unbleached AP flour. 
Is it a lot? When I get color on fondant, I take a paintbrush dipped in vinegar and paint it off. 
I always have nightmares about doing that, which end in me running down stairs and digging through the trash at 4am, when I went to bed at 2am.  I count the liners in the trash then go back to sleep. It is my biggest cake fear and i'm constantly anxious about it.   Thanks for the tip.   GOOD SAVE!
As a person who use to work in printer manufacturing, I would say no.  Every single printer that came down our manufacturing line was tested with ink to ensure they are working and the print quality was within specifications. Granted this was ~15 years ago, so manufacturing processes could have very well changed by now. 
my best advice is get in the kitchen and try some stuff out. I doubt if someone had a recipe like this they would give it to you. What I would do is buy a few books. You might have to buy separate ones for each category you are trying to sub. For example start with a recipe, unchanged that is gluten-free, bake as is the first time around to see if you like. Then take away dairy and refined sugar and see where it gets you. You may want to get some gluten-free books, some...
I love my agbay. I got it a few months ago.  I work with a lot of soft cakes and I've had no problems. In fact many of the cakes have been eggless. I always torte/level cold cakes. Not sure if that makes a difference. 
Sixinarow, all those cakes are just beautiful. How in the world did you get the rope to stay on the side of the cake?    OTCakes, very lovely!  Nice job with the box top too, those are tricky!   Ducky, nice cake, I love the rope!      Here's the rest of my Thomas the Train party. These parents went all out for this party, they invited our family, and we stayed. It was such a big order, I didn't take any others this week.  All in all, 90 cookies, 36 cupcakes...
Cat Congratulations! How exciting!     I've been working on these 90 Thomas the Train cookies for party favors.  I have the theme song for that show stuck in my head, it is haunting me. After this project, I never want to see this Thomas the Train character again.   My bad decision was to go belly dancing with some of my stay at home mommy friends tonight. Thankfully, I finished all the piping on the cookies before dancing, but my arms are so tired and sore...
Awww! Sorry to hear about your bad day. There will be other days that make you feel like a superstar sitting on top of the world. Until then, GIANT HUGS!
