What is BB&B?The coupon idea is great - but my boys are a bit too young yet and daddy wouldn't be able to find enough to do with them during the day to keep them away, lol. Unfortunately we don't have family near by too help out!
I have been wanting to try fondant after seeing all the neat cakes here. I just assumed that everyone made their own and colored it for all the decorations. Then while in the cake supply store I saw premade fondant in small and large quantities - some even precolored. Then I saw Wilton had some small boxes of neutral colors or primary colors.So my question is how difficult is it to make your own if you don't own a KA or like type of mixer? Any hints? What is the...
I like your thinking! I do have patience, lots of it - I'm raising a house full of boys If only I could get that day to myself wow, I think I could do lots of cakes! I resort to 9 PM - 2 AM decorating If I drink, my cake may turn out lopsided - or I could jst say I want it to look like a topsy turvy Relaxation is PURE QUIET in my house!Thank you for all the suggestions. I am debating on the KA. I just don't have space right now.
So, you only mentioned adding the $30 skirt cost. Did she pay for the extra food? I would definitely addmore to the bill than just the grocery store receipt - you had to prepare and use your gas... Where did they seat everyone?
Sorry if this is an elementary question. I have looked everywhere on CC for the definitions or differences, but I'm not finding the answer.Are they interchangeable? Why would you use one over the other when making decorations? Do they mold similar? Or do you only use fondant to roll thin and cover cakes or do flat decorations like geometric shapes? Why would you combine the two forms (mix together before making a decoration)?Does one dry harder? Does one dry...
Our local cake supply store carries a lot of CK products as well. They carry Magic Line pans, Wilton specialty pans, AmeiColor... so only top brands.HTH.
Thanks, It's not until September 11th. I wanted to get my list going so there are no excuses on what to buy or where to go, lol. My hubby is a last minute shopper.
HMMM - food for thought. Thanks Doug!!!I guess I'm going to have to read up on gum paste. I have also send a couple of PMs regarding "water". Here is another one I forgot to add earlierhttp://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=771483If you think of anything else, please let me know. I'm open to trying anything once (as long as I don't have to spend a ton of money to do it).
Okay, I hate my computer. I had replied and included two links to two cakes here on CC. I am looking for more of a stream, but I think it is with pulled sugar and I have never done that before. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=745153http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=82923http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=58929 I think this may be the easier route for me if I can...
A friend of ours has an annual Sprinkler party for the kids before school gets back into session. I told her I would make a cake - any practice I can get. I would like to sculpt one in the shape of a sprinkler with a hose and "water". What is the best way to make this? I was thinking two 9x13 pans stacked and carved in the shape. Then use BC in yellow and grey. How would I go about making the water coming out of the sprinkler? The hose could be rice crispies covered...
