Let's list everything:
-cake ingredients-butter, flour, sugar, eggs, milk, salt, extracts, confectioners sugar, butter or shortening, colors
-box and board
-electricity, gas, and water
-time and labor
Is all of that...
If it is cold where you are- the car is a great cooler (refrigerator)-boxed up the cupcakes will be fine- a friend of mine forget the cupcakes were in the car-cc were fine.
Just make sure the sun is not shining on the box.
I use the recipe from Wilton-when I need perfectly round cookies:
When cookies come out of the oven (while still hot cut with round cutter).
I hope this makes sense.
Happy Baking and Decorating,
These tips are helpful:
Butter, eggs, milk need to be room temperature.
Sift dry ingredients (even if the recipe does not say so) together-mix until combined- do not beat the mix to death.-UNTIL COMBINED.
Calibrate oven-make sure...
I don't do tastings for birthdays.
Wedding cake tastings NO!-Lunch or afternoon tea for four with cake for dessert-25.00 and if the cake is ordered from me 25.00 off price of wedding cake.
Thanks to economy-especially gas going...
Bridal shows are expensive-I was talking to a fellow cake decorator-this is what she did.She contacted wedding planners and had a cake show with decorated dummies and tasting-provided coffee, tea, bottled water and now she does wedding...
