Yayyy I'm so excited!! two of my cakes were selected in this category. I never think my cakes are worth of any mentioning so this is awesome!!! Thank you Cake Central you made my day!! :)


Beautiful cakes! Can someone please explain to me the easiest most effective way to make the fondant tissue in the shopping bag cakes? Thank you.


I usually roll out extremely thin strips of 50/50 using my KA pasta roller. I store the sheets in a zip log bag [2 gallon] on clear flexible cutting mats. I cut them into squares--about 4x4--and then pinch/shape them and fill the top of the bag.


Hi Kadesan, I do mine pretty much like Maybenot except I don't pass them through the pasta roller. By hand I just roll gumpaste very thin and then cut squares to reseamble tissue paper. Then I pinch them to give the look of crunched tissue. Let it dry for a day or so and arrange them on your cake as desired. I usually make extras since I always break some in the process. Good luck!!


These cakes are truly amazing !!!

love everyone of them
