I am entering a competition in a month and a half and for the wedding cake division I am thinking of doing a cake with wafer paper ruffles. Has anyone done a cake in advanced with wafer paper and let it sit out? Will it dry up and crack?
Also, I absolutely love modern minimalist wedding cakes with a few things here and there, but it seems that the more ornate wedding cakes tend to win. Have you found this to be true in your experience?
I am also considering having a portion of my show cake spin electronically. How do you think judges will take this? Will this be considered as another skill? Or is having a portion of the cake rotate too over the top?
