Just thought of another way to do a chevron without fondant: edible printing media.


Wow: this thread just broke 100 pages.

Or air brush
Hey everybody! Check out google.com ! This is clearly an attempt to direct traffic onto that site and away from cake central. Because everyone knows you can only have one browser open!

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Ways to do Charlie Brown's shirt, uh, I mean Chevron, on buttercream:

Stencil it on with buttercream
Airbrush it on using a stencil
Paint it on with a paintbrush and a stencil
Apply it to the cake after cutting it out of fondant or chocolate clay
Frozen buttercream transfer
Combination of FBT and chocolate clay
Wait until the trend passes and you don't have to deal with it anymore

I so agree and I commend AllaMarie for having the guts to do it ! :) The client sounds like a real Biotch. I bet you got her good .

"Oh I can do what you do. I can't bake but that doesn't matter. People buy cakes for the look not the taste" Blank stare and I walk away before I say something.

I had a friend who I'm doing a wedding cake for her in September... we had a very nice simple three tier white cake with coloured ribbon and flowers on top.. my kind of stress free cake! That was decided when we decided the engagement cake. Then she decides that she wants a mad hatter shaped cake... which I have never done... I try to steer her into a different direction and she finally chooses a more simple cake with the tiers being tapered instead of completely wonky... then she says she wants flowers on top... Usually I steer customers towards getting their florist to do a topper in the same flowers as the bouquets etc. However, her groom wants edible flowers... then she says to me: 
"how r u going with flower making? i have another friend who can help out with them if u need?"
to which I explained that I was ok, if she wanted roses, thats great, if she want's anything else she needs to let me know what she wants anything else she needs to let me know so I can practice them. Then she said:
"
yeah, thats what i though but she has just finished some course making them & offered to do it at cost price to get her name out there for more customers..i told her u r already making my cake but will see how u feel about it..."
I told her I'm sorry but I'm not comfortable putting someone elses on top of one of my cakes. I thought I don't know who this person is, what class she did or what her flowers are like.

Was she planning on handing out her business card at the reception or something? Some people...

This thread is awesome! It will take me forever to read all of it, but it will be entertaining!
So here are my " things not to ask":
-Oh, my 7-year-old would love to be able to decorate cakes like that! Would you teach her?
-How long did that take? (I have learned from my mom whose artistry is with paint and brush that the answer to this is "All my life!".)
