Hi there, I am a home baker and here are a few of my most recent cakes....I can tear my cakes apart with flaws but thought I would see what all you lovely people have to say.

Would love suggestions on keeping stripes straight from table to cake.

Thank you in advance for your time!

Well, I'm no expert on topsy-turvy cakes (and neither do I play one on television), so all I really know is that if it looks like it's going to fall over, but doesn't actually do so, then you've succeeded.

Nope, didn't fall over.  Even after sitting outside at a pool party in 85 degree weather.  :-D

Nothing wrong with that cake.  Great job.  The only thing I want to whack you for is taking a great photo with a gnarly backdrop.  Get yourself two pieces of black and two of white foam core and use one under the cake and one in the back - propped up against the cabinets (in whichever color goes best with the cake you've done.  Makes all the difference in the world.

Thank you in advance!


Your cakes are lovely. I found the key to straight stripes is a rolling cutter. I used to try to use a pizza cutter and ruler, but broke down and bought a rolling cutter. After you cut, and roll them up like a fruit roll up, then unroll as you are placing on the cake. I saw this technique in one of those cake shows on tv years ago and it does prevent them from stretching and getting out of shape. That is how I made my stripes for my flag cake, and some others that are not even posted yet.
