Basketball cake - Page 2

post #16 of 21

there's the whole frige or not to frige issues with crumb coats--so there's that--everybody does it different

 

the frige does dry the cake some but if the cake's sealed with icing this drying is diminished and the extra strength of the chill is valuable to some (me)

 

but those are personal preferences--freezing and chilling are important tools when used wisely

 

and it also can stop the fondant from relaxing too after it's been applied (can inhibit puddling)

 

i stock flat two piece windowless sheet cake boxes--so i always have acceptable food ready cardboard to fashion boxes

 

and i make the boxes first as soon as i know the size of my board-- i just tape the flaps flat and usually use two together

 

using one of those hand held big wide tape dispensers

 

just a fine point here--the picture shows little white bits by the black stripes on the b-ball

 

often it's just the way the flash caught things

 

but if it is removeable--if it is icing--you can take a hat pin and slice those off easy peasy --two cuts & it's gone--if you even feel like fooling with it

 

because it might not even be noticeable in person

 

but mostly i just wanted to illustrate how important the hat pin is

 

say you have a blow out--where the icing has an air bubble underneath--pop it with a hat pin

 

but wow it's an awesome cake and you're about to make somebody very happy!

for family and close friends i think you're ok for a while

 

i think when you start doing for friends of friends you're out there and need to get it all up & up

 

lotsa rigamarole--no straight lines

 

hope all goes well

 

you can do lots of searches on here for that too

 

important to know--each locality and within even each of those (say from city limits to unincoporated areas of the same jurisdictions)

 

the rules can change--so best of the best to you
