What a great cake! A few years ago I made a elephaunt cake and was searching for ideas- yours is amazing and I will have to give it a try! Thanks for all of the instructions! Do you have a picture of the back?Great Job!
I have found plastic and even rubbery doilies at the $1 store. I have found them in a variety of sizes from 2 inches or so to 14 inches. You might try looking there.
I am making a cake for a friends birthday in a few weeks. I want to make the base a very vivid royal blue. My concern is that the blue will bleed onto the guests hands and turn their teeth blue.

Is there a website where I could download the patterns that I need?Any ideas or information would be helpful.Thanks!
Hello everyone!!I am pretty new to all of this but as a way to kind of get the word out and show people what I can do I told everyone ( friends/family) that I would make the first cake for them for free but after that I would charge! It has seemed to work out well. By using what the person wanted for the free cake as a practice I no longer have an excess of cake that dosnt get eaten and they get a onetime free cake. So far everyone seems to think that it is fair way to...
I will be making a 16x16 2 layer chocolate cake with white buttercream frosting and no filling. On top will be a 10x10 cake set to look like a table which will also be coverd with buttercream. I will also have a teapot and 4 teacups that will be coverd with fondant. Would storing the cake in the fridge make the buttercream dry? What would be the best way, should I cover it with something?
