i went to tcp global site and bought mine. great service, they also usually give gifts with purchase, mine was colors .
hmmmm.... i would compare that request to.... this scenario ... you call mcdonalds tell them their big mac is too expensive, and if you make the hamurgers can you then come in and have them finish making the sandwich... so it will be cheaper. what do you think they would say?
i have never made one, but someone brought one to work and it was messy. the icing was all over everything, because they made it look like one solid cake on top. very messy. every time some one pulled a cupcake out more icing fell.
yes, those look airbrushed, and you cant just watch a tutorial and learn to airbrush like that, that airbrushing technique took time and lots of hours of practicing, it was a very experienced air brusher that did those cakes. my suggestion is start practicing, air flow technique, spray technique and blending. with close inspection it looks like part of the cake was hand painted too, the trees for example. beautiful cakes. good luck with yours.
hi, you might want to try the colorful little candy coated choc chips. they are really cute and are not as hard as non pariels. they work great in cakes and even buttercream frosting.
hi guys, it's not size that matters it's the psi, you want. and what you need is non-pulsating air to prevent sputtering and splotching. the thicker the medium the more psi you need. BUT remember the most important thing, your air brush needles must be able to handle the material too. i have five air brush guns that i use. you cant get sheen through a small gauge needle, you must have the right sized needle. sweetshops, i looked at the system you linked, the biggest...
hello, this is what i do, everyone on here has their own ways, so hopefully more people will answer and you will have lots of choices to choose from. room temp cakes before stacking i use crusting buttercream, so have never used powdered sugar between stacks, good idea though. be very careful about wooden dowel, it must go into bottom cake board, but you don't want it going through or it will scratch, break, or allow your cake to slide on mirror, under the weight of...
after having one of my cakes bulge on me i came here and asked for help. the best advice i ever got. put the dam one inch from the edge of the cake, by the time it has settled on its own, it squishes out perfectly to the edge. bless who told that advice. not a bulge since.
oh yes, every cake comes with a direction sheet for cutting and dismantling the tiers, with helpful info like.. please dont try to eat the dowel rods or serve them. you just know someone is gonna try... lol i even have a helpful sheet for the brides, when i do a tasting and the contract is done, they get what i call the miracle sheet. its a list of caterers, florists, venues, churches, with telephone, address, and email. i also have a don't forget me list. it's a list of...
try this next time you practice. make your icing blobs on the cake, But instead of using the spatula, use a spoon. it gives a great curve quality to the petal, and you can make it easier by having a glass of very hot water with a couple spoons in it, pick up a spoon touch the back of it to a paper towel to remove excess water, then you have a very warm spoon that will not only give the petal a smooth look but is hot enough to work with stiffer icings. try it, you will like...
