I haven't seen one in Australia, just seen them a lot in photos.Thanks for all your replies, they are most helpful. It seems they are less expensive that I initially thought, so I am hopeful.
Does anyone know where I can find cake stands in similar style to the photo below. I think they are lovely. (Probably expensive though.) They appear to be silvercoated metal. Thanks!
Why not?
To get a response from Disney quickly, you could write in your letter, "I intend to sell cakes which incorporate Disney characters. If you have any problems with me doing this, please let me know."You can be sure you'll get a response quickly, and if you don't, then it's tacit permission to go ahead!

Wilton make them, and many swear by Americolor although I haven't tried them. Sugarflair (British brand) is good too. Paste colours are very vivid and won't change the consistency of the icing. Simply add a bit of the paste to the finished icing and stir till it is evenly blended. The 'toothpick' method refers to the fact...
Thank you for all your replies and tips, it is most helpful. I just made a Garfield cake similar to one I saw in the gallery. Because I didn't have pudding bowls, I used Texas muffin tins and had to carve it into a rounded semi-circle shape. I was using a serrated knife and sometimes it 'caught' onto a chunk of crumbs and the whole chunk comes out, leaving a bit of a hole in the cake. I wonder if anyone has tried using the 'spackle' method of crumbcoating with crumbs mixed...
