I like countrykitchensa.com or globalsugarart.com
Just a note: I haven't been getting notices for neither this thread nor PM's, so I will try to check in more often just in case!
I haven't seen Sweet Wise. If it is a true pastry filling (not like the canned fruit fillings) then it should not soak into cake. Bavarian cream is great with champagne cake and red velvet, or a Nilla Wafer cake (sub finely ground Nilla wafers for 1 cup of the flour) with sliced bananas and a bavarian cream filling.
They are sheets of foam core board (white) that you purchase in the craft department. They come on 1/4" and 1/2" thickness. You have to cut them yourself into circles.
Definitely purchase the 1/2" foam core sheets and cut circles from them (they are $5.99, so use Michaels coupons). I place my cake directly on them and then wrap fondant around the base of the cake to cover the board - see my photos. Not sure the silver thing will hold the weight of the cake when you need to pick it up and carry it to the reception (?). And I would definitely keep all tiers separate if using the silver base.
I would at least leave the top off, better to leave the top 2 tiers off. When I am transporting a multi-tiered cake, I hammer my dowels all the way through the foam core base (for wedding cakes, two 1/2" foam core circles glued together to form a 1" base). Without hammering them down into the base, the weight of the above tiers can cause the dowels to lean if a corner is taken too quickly, then the whole cake may fall.
BUT, has anyone tried it? I'm not looking for an angel food cake texture, just a lighter texture. I may give it a shot next week using 1/4 recipe just to see what happens...
Has anyone tried WASC with angel food cake mix? I was about to, then decided not to waste my time when I realized there were 2 pouches, one flour and one egg white mix. Considered dumping them both together and proceeding with WASC recipe... then thought I'd ask first.
lorannoils.com has a new Cola flavor. Use diet Cola for all of the liquid, and add the Cola flavoring, but try 1/2 tsp before adding the entire dram. The concentrated flavors can add quite a bang for their buck.
Oh yeah, ALL of it. (2-2/3 c).
