I really want to buy one, but it is expensive and I don't know how much it would be consitering the P&P and the taxes.

Thanks!



I've got an Agbay. I actually had it delivered to someone who was in the US and they brought it over with them! By far the easiest way to do it! icon_biggrin.gif However, other people I know have been charged tax on it.

Why can't a normal leveller be used? Now I feel like I shouldn't have bought the one I have. Is there something special about the 'Agbay'?

Like I said before in my previos post, I like cova paste. Once I did make Lidy Smith's sugarpaste and Marshmellow fondant. Its very hard work and Marshmellow fondant is too sweet for me.

My friend made Michele Foster's Fondant and it tasted so yummy. I prefer it more than marshmellow fondant.

I've got an Agbay too! And I was one of the lucky ones who didn't get charged the tax! icon_smile.gif

Oh, of course you can use a normal leveller. If you're getting on OK with it, there's no reason not to use it. icon_smile.gif

Can anyone help me? I need some lilac coloured marshmallows, do these exist?

Thanks
Claire



Claire, I've never seen lilac marshmallows in the shops, but you can make marshmallow fairly easily.

I just found out about the SPS system. Does anyone know if I can get hold of the stuff from UK?

Single Plate Seperator System. I haven't fully understood it yet, will need to read the article a couple of times to understand.

Hi all

I have been asked for a quote for 90 cupcakes for a joint 40th birthday celebration - I am usually a caker and am still trying to get my head around pricing them. This has got me stumped. Is anyone willing to share prices or give me an idea of basic pricing which I can work from.

I don't know yet whether they will be buttercream or fondant or even how they will be decorated.

This will be my first 'official enquiry' as I have just registered as a business, and I want to try to get the balance right. I don't want to sell myself short as I know how much work must be involved but I also don't want to give a ridiculously high quote.

I am in yorkshire if that helps.

Thanks

My bare minimum would be £2.50 each.

Depending on how they want them decorated, it goes up from there.

Hope this helps.
