post #481 of 762

Hi, here's my latest efforts.  I wasn't sure whether this should go here or in the cake disasters thread.  I am so disappointed with it.

 

http://cakecentral.com/g/i/3120793/a/8/grey-cube-cake-with-chevrons-and-peony/

 

Something went weird with my buttercream, my fondant was too soft, I had to re-do the peony as the first one fell off its wire when I held it upside down, the royal icing started off to thick (on the back) so I thinned it down too much, somehow crumbs got on my stencil, I ran out of time and mucked up the board when putting the cake on...  I could go on!

 

At least it was just a casual cake for a friend.

 

Please can you give me pointers for what to do better next time?

Unfortunately, I couldn't do the original design as planned, my avatar, because of skill level and time constraints. It was my first time workkng with ganache. I did a practice cake with ganache and a lot of tester cakes. I did do the decorations ahead of time and they were ready to go. Here is where I ran into problems: I knew that I was going to have a storage issue as I ony have a standard fridge, so I decided to freeze the ganached-covered cakes, alternatively. Some where in the freezer, some were in the fridge. I thawed at room temp. and covered with mmf..some with slight condensation underneath. The 6 in was perfectly ganached, perfect straight sides and everything (moist rvc..took mr forever though). Put this in freezer..took it out to thaw and ganache got soft....like fudge..covered 1/8 mmf..back in freezer..worried..took it out, it thawed and got really sticky..frustrated, I covered it with a thicker layer of fondant, which imo, worked ok since the original layer melted down from the cold thawing. I had covered the 16 in earlier with ganache and fondant the night before...woke up to an air bubble ths size of my head!!.omg!! Ripped that off, re-ganached, re-fondanted. By now, I do not feel like the intricate work of the other cake, so l decided to KISS. Sorry if I sound scrambled. Please critique me! Ask me what I have probably left out!! Hobby baker only..

I am writing an article for SheKnows Australia. On a really tight deadline and looking for some images of cute cakes for kids that I can use. I can credit the images. If you can send me a message along with a link to the photo I can use that would be hugely appreciated. Cheers

I never get to do character cakes. My granddaughter needed to bring a cake to preschool for a cakewalk so I did the minion I have been dying to do. Here he is!
