Great for newbies like me! Thank you both!
Thanks! I was looking for something with pictures and details of how to use impression mats and stumbled across your posting!
Thanks for posting, interesting stuff!
Thanks for this topic I will definately keep this in my favourites and also try to find some stuff to add to it.
Great list. I have one too, just don't have the time right this minute to list them. Will try to do that later.
Thanks for sharing those!
Lots of good stuff! Thanks for posting those.

i may learn to do the sunflower, since i do live in kansas!
will spending mornign learning new stuff!!
That is going to be SO helpful to have. I am so new to this but I have to learn fast - I am going to do a cake for a friends wedding in July. Thankfully she just wants something very simple and plain. This website has been SO great so far and these links are going to be priceless to me! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, beany!!
Well- I guess technically this is not a HOW-to per se, but I find it really useful. Especially since I have several European books that mention ingredients by different names or that are new to me. I had the hardest time fuguring out what castor sugar is. I finally found it was superfine, but not 10x.
So, hope this helps.....it is not jsut subs, it tells the properties of most items it lists.
Thanks for the great tips everyone!!!
This is one that I like for ganache and cake flowers
