I know this is an old thread just wondering what type of butter have you found to be the best? I used to use store brand but had hubby run out and get some this am he got land o lakes and just creaming the butter and sugar together I noticed a difference.
I did a craft fair about a month ago. I made 2 dozen of 4 diff. kinds of cupcakes. (maple bacon, chocolate, lemon, and pumpkin) I sold them for less than I normally would just to get my name out there. I didn't sell one chocolate! Only sold one pumpkin and one lemon. I however sold out of the bacon. The most common quote I got was "Bacon?!?! Really I gotta try that!!" the booth rental was $60 ( I split it with my mom, she makes scarfs) I took photos of cakes that I've made...
They don't want filling or butter cream between layers?
ok I've been decorating for a couple of years now and I would love to start my own business someday ( kiddos too young now and I need more exp. ) any way a local tech school has started a culinary department ( a few years ago I think) I was thinking about taking some classes.

Is she going to make you sign a no compet clause? (where you cannot decorate after you no longer work for her?) and then you have to think about child care. You would get experience of running a business tho but sounds like doing 5 cakes a week ( as long as your getting paid for them) you already...
Yes it's happened colors get darker after awhile I have learned to mix colors at least the day before. I don't know how to fix without mixing some more and putting a thin layer on and it probably won't work in this situation. Sorry
Thanks that's kind of what I was thinking. My hubby is an artist he always carves my cakes for me!! thanks again for the help.
It's a razorback (Arkansas) with a binky in it's mouth for a baby shower. I would love to charge $175 for it but the market will not support I was thinking about doing a 3 layer sheet cake and carving from there. I was thinking 80-100. About 30 servings need I know that will be way to much cake but I don't know how to make it smaller and still come out looking right.
