Friday Night Cake Club 2/1/13 - Page 2

post #16 of 29

Hi, I know I'm a bit late, but I spent last night (I'm in Scotland) finishing off this cake for a friend's birthday party.  It's myfirst attempt at the ruffles but I like the effect.  I've learnt so much from lurking here!

 

A simple ombre effect with frills and flowers.

Grace...I think you can post anything in this chat group that you want...we do have a moderator tho' who can let us know for sure. I've only posted other baked goods or dessert items here other than cakes.

 

Brettley, the splatter cake sounds like fun. I've made "paint" before but just "dripped" the frosting down the sides. Splattering sound like fun! Gotta ask...who the heck are Toopy and Binoo?

They are kids characters. I had NO idea who they were until about 3 months ago. Apparently they are all the craze with kids now. Sometimes I feel like I should just start watching kids shows so I don't sound like a complete fool when someone asks for something completely foreign to me! Thank goodness for google I guess.

 

In regards to the paint, i am prepping my "splatter area" as we speak. At least it will all wipe off, which is more than i can say for real paint.

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.

I usually know who they are because I have grandkids now who watch the little kids cartoons and an 11 year old who watches the preteen and teen cartoons. But, even after looking it up thru google, I still don't know these two<G>. And, no, you are not the only one who feels out of touch! LOL!

Here's my painted cake. I really need to work on my photography skills, because I couldn't really capture it.

Kiki, that's beautiful! And don't feel badly about your photography skills. I worked as a photographer for 20 years and learning food photography is hard! I'm still learning! LOL!

Lizzie! It's just perfect! I love the ruffles too! I'm dying to try this look..just haven't figured out how to change it a bit and make it "mine" yet. Be honest, is it hard to do?

Its so hard, my tiny house doesn't have many great spots to get natural light! I wish I could have done a better job on my fondant, and I should have used a finer brush. But I'm pretty happy with it as a first attempt!

Cat, thanks so much!

Once I worked out in my head how much of each shade I needed, it was easy.  One little trick I realised was to leave the ruffled strips to dry for just a minute or two before sticking them to the cake so that they don't flop about so much, but obviously while they're still flexible enough to curve.

 

"I'm dying to try this look..just haven't figured out how to change it a bit and make it "mine" yet."

 

That's the trouble with all these fads for cakes - they look fun to do but it is hard not to have them all look so samey.  I just decided that I wanted to try it, and my friends don't spend all their time checking out cake designs like me, so it'll be new to them!

 

Hope you have fun with your version :-)

Thanx for the tips...I'm going to do this on a Demo Cake so if I have a hard time it won't matter. Get the technique down before trying it for a client<G>. I'll share it when I do. Won't be till March tho..I have client cakes till then.
