Hi everyone, I am making a wedding cake, Tiffany style with white ribbon and bow. I have made the bows and sprayed them with PME pearl lustre dust, but now they look cream! Did I spray too much on? I used it after reading many thread on here saying that was the best thing to use, but I need the ribbon to still look white. Any ideas? need urgent answers. Thanks
Hi, I have been asked to make a three tiered stacked tiffany box wedding cake. What is the best method for getting the box lid look and then stacking another tier on top of that? I have read the comments about turning the cake tin over and using gumpaste to shape a lid that way, but will it crack when attempting to stack another tier on top? ~Also, worried it might not give a nice fitted lid look.
Any tips would be most helpful.
I think the trick is getting the right ratio of ingredients. For a vanilla sponge try Peggy Porschen recipe, also cream your butter and sugar until very pale and creamy then add your beaten eggs very very slowly. Works for me
Hi, I am in the UK and when i visit florida I love the frosting that Walmart put on their birthday cakes/cupcakes. It is so light and fluffy. Does anyone have the recipe for this kind of frosting? I tried making the Fluffy Marshmallow Frosting, but this just tasted like uncooked meringue mixture!
Hi, I am only just starting to be asked to bake cakes for strangers, up until now I have just done cakes for family and friends. I have been asked how much I would charge do make a Square 4 tier wedding cake, bottom tier fruit and 3 more tiers in sponge. They want it fairly plainly decorated, with just a few flowers on the sides. They forwarded a link to one on the M&S website that they like...
Hi, thanks for your reply. I have just spoken with the client and she says she will go with whatever I feel looks best (thank goodness) as I tried the silver jewel glitter dust on a practice cake and the effect just looked tacky. I think it best I go with just a pearlescent lustre dust to give the sparkly effect and then add some glitter ribbon and edible sparkle stars in stretegic places. Thanks for your input though, much appreciated.
