But eating a balanced meal, drinking plenty of water and getting some kind of exercise, even if it's walking the dog and afterwards snacking on something healthy prior to baking (like almonds, fruit...etc.) you'll kick that habit...
I've seen the mountain theme tutorial here on CC, but my client wants a cake that has two roads coming down on both sides and I'm not sure how to do that. My problem isn't really the sculpting, but the boards under each layer of cake. It will be 3 different flavored 10 inch cakes and one 8inch on top. I've made two sugar pieces as requested and they want one running up the mountain and the other running down. I was thinking of doing each layer separatly, starting at the...
