Thanks to the great tips on CC I solved 2 of my biggest cake decorating problems in one weekend. I have HUGE crumb issues and the Wilton Cake Release took care of that. So thanks for the tip, guys! And then I had major air bubbles in my BC since they changed the Crisco---I was about to go completely crazy. I was almost to the point of only doing fondant cakes because I could not get smooth frosting, but then I read the BC post about using 1/2 butter, 1/2 Crisco . So I tried that this weekend and it worked perfectly. So THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR AMAZING ADVICE!!!
Now, you can just teach me how to write on cakes, I will be all set!!
I would like to try the sugar veil for writing! It looks amazing!
You mean, so your writing isn't all squiggly? Or going up hill? Or looks like a child wrote it? I could go on.......the(my) possibilities are endless when it comes to writing on a cake!!!! Writing on a cake neatly....what a breakthrough that would be!!!!
Many people use the pin prick method. They print out they type in a font they like and pin prick it place it on the cake and then follow the dots.
You are so smart! Sorry, I am a little slow---never thought of that! : ) Thanks! I will try that next time.
What is the sugar veil?
Finally found this thread.
Karnesue is the decorator I remember talking about it! Here is a link to her photos
In the thread she specifies which photos have the sugar veil and how she uses it! Her writing is amazing!
