Hi everybody! I'm making some cakepops but my cake is so moist they don't need any frosting. The problem is they don't have enough lemon flavor.. how can I do? I was thinking to let the crumbs dry for a couple of day, or stick the pan in the oven.. any tip?   thanks
where do you guys order your gumpaste flowers? I have this cake for Sept 20th,but the customer wants different flowers together, some roses, tulips, peonies, daisies..    Also if you have a source for those butterflies would be great..

WHAT????? oh sure, I will come.. sure.. if I will have time.. not!!!!!   anyways, K8memphis, yes my recipes are always with me in my book, always in my...
This is not the problem. Customers often aske who is going to decorate the cake because they want to talk right to that person. I don't want to say it's going to be me if it's not true because if they deliver a bad cake it's going to be on me!
I finally decided to leave the bakery I work for, so I gave 2 weeks notice last monday. My last day will be next Sunday. I have few customers ordering cakes, cupcakes and cookies for the next months, people that even had cake tastings.  My boss told me to keep on taking orders but these people won't have the same products because all the recipes are mine and, of course, I'm not going to leave them at the bakery.
