Hi fellow Brits, I'm an expat living in the US and I wondered if any of you have tried the PME natural food color? A lot of the colors here contain ingredients that are banned in the rest of the world and I think I've found a supplier for the PME, but wanted to check how good they are before buying. Thanks!

Hi there, I haven't tried PME. I use sugar flair paste colours. Is there any place you can find those?

The PME ones caught my eye because they're all natural, are the Sugarflair ones all natural too?

Hello Folks, I was wondering if you guys have any idea where I could buy edible icing sheets. The ones that come in different patterns. I believe there are designer patterns as well such as the LV and Gucci ones. I’ve searched through Google, but I can’t seem to find any Website in the UK to order from.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Hailinguk

 

Could you tell me which nozzle you used to pipe your cakes?  I'm quite new to cupcake making and cake decorating so I'm going to be asking may questions over time (as well as reading my new books!)

 

Thanks

Lauren

Hello all,

I'm new on here, hope your all okay.

I have been reading Peggy Porchens books and I would like to know where you can buy liquid fondant OR how to make it yourself? Thank you for your help all! X

Hi everyone, I have a rainbow wedding cake to do, where the bride wants about 6 different colours in the cake in stripes.  Now that bit is no problem, but I'm not sure about the colouring.     I make my cakes from scratch and with butter, so my batter is always a pale yellow colour before baking.  Now if I add say red to that its gonna turn an orangy shade and if I add blue surely  that will turn more of a greeny shade?!      Any advice on this please ladies (and gents)! on how to achieve bright colours that I want to achieve.     Any advice appreciated  icon_biggrin.gif   Jan

Hi Jan, if you register on the BSG forum, one of the members has posted a step by step on making the rainbow cake. It will answer all your questions.

Lauren, I use 1M tip to pipe my cupcakes.

I believe they are the same thing. Do you have an idea where I could buy them please? 

 

I'd love to use them for a clean finish on Handbag cakes etc.. The ones I have seen so far are for colourful designs, but I'm looking for the LV and Gucci patterns. Thanks.

I have only ever seen the colourful design type ones you mention. I can see how designer ones would be really good for bags but I'm not sure of their legallity? Unless they are made/authorised by the brand wouldn't they be 'fake' and breaking copyright laws? If they are being produced above board the companies themselves should know where to get them so contacting them directly might be a way forward?

You can find them in cake shops, but I don't think non of them sell the designer ones. If you like to have a look, Tracey Mann got a good selection,
