Thanks for the comments on my mickey mouse cake......I told everyone about the crack, everyone said they wouldnt of really taken any notice if I hadnt pointed it out, I have a problem accepting that my work is any good thouigh so I tend to point out all the flaws of stuff before anyone else notices....guess I need to stop doing that, maybe once Im a bit more confident in my work
Im going to buy coloured icing in future, sooo much easier, I HATE colouring my own, unless its the tiniest amount! Its more expensive to buy coloured though but suppose the little extra it is saves on hours of kneeding
. I have a cake to do for a firends little girls first birthday though in 2 weeks, I think I will try the Covapaste for it, do you all buy it online for cheaper prices? (P.s Does anyone have any tips on how to cover a number 1, I found it so hard when I did the number 2 getting the icing in to the "bends" as it all started cracking!
I so Agree about the asda cakes as well. Everyone says my cakes are just gorgeous and what secret recepie do I use, how did I learn to bake like that etc etc they also RAVED about how good my cupcakes were but I like most of you use simple victoria sponge or a maderia recepie if i'm making one to scupt but I think its because they are so used to the rubbish dry tasteless mass produced Asda/Tesco etc ones!!
Oh and I think EVERYONE in this threads cakes are awsome, every single one of you, so can you all please give yoursleves a pat on the back as you are all brilliant in my eyes!
