Snake Cake Tutorial

  **The only step not captured was when I used a plastic webbing material to make the scales impression on the fondant. I tried using avocado and lemon bags, as has been suggested by others, but found the impression wasn't deep enough, or just didn't work well with my marshmallow fondant, but then I found some firmer mesh material at Whole Foods (at the fish counter of all places-- they gave me a clean/new piece of the mesh they sit the fish on in the display case!)  I rubbed the impression onto the fondant after it was on the cake, since I knew I'd never be able... read more

Make a Display Cake!

When I first began my cake business I made my very first display cakes out of real cake.  A total of 6 two tiered and one 3 tiered real decorated cakes for the Cal Expo show!  At the time it seemed like the easiest solution as I was not comfortable (at all) with making a non-edible display cake.  One of my biggest concerns is that Styrofoam cakes are very light and I cringed at the thought of fighting the cake to stay still as I worked to decorate it.   As time has gone on there have been a number of occasions such as shows during a busy week and photo shoots that I... read more
