are you sure that is the right picture? I don't think that is a pic of a cake
yep, should be fine. just watch that it doesn't dry out too quickly while cooking. a tray of water in the base of the oven will help. also let it cool completely in the pan and try to resist cutting it for 24hrs
I have made one shoe before. I used some fondant to make a mold to dry the sole on so I got a nice shape to it. I spent quite a while shaping the fondant mold then wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap so I didn't waste it all. it was basically a slope with a flatter bit at the top and bottom for the heel and toe. I think this pic of the almost completed shoe shows what I mean about the shape of the sole. Other than that I think you have done a fantastic job of both the shoe...

I have only used americolor airbrush colours, and their silver, bronze and pearl have been great (haven't used their gold yet sorry) as far as the investment goes, mine was a package with compressor, brush, a set of colours, turntable, some stencils...
I have read through all the threads on topsy turvies, and I think I have confused myself. I am planning a 3 tier for this weekend, for my sons 1st birthday (so not a paying customer). I am not to concerned about serving numbers, I already know there will way too much cake but I am more interested in adding it to my portfolio. I plan to start with 6, 8 and 10 inch round cakes. from there I am going to carve the tops (they will be 4" tall to start with and I will flip the...
