i understand the whole waiting for the bubbles to set, but do you guys not mix it before using it? it's such a habit for me to give any icing a good mix before i use it.. i'm using a pin and that doesnt seem to work all that well
sorry i hijack this, but i figure my question is kinda relevant i use the bake strips and the nail too and but sometimes i find on my bigger cakes (10inch and up) i still struggle a little.i take the strips off about 40 mins into baking because the last time i left it on for the entire time, it took wayyyyyyyyy too long to finish. and i rotate every 15 minutes.does anyone else do this too? or is it just my uber old oven that screws me up? seems to work okay this way for my...
i agree with luvbuttercream, i find that the Mac's froster straws are almost the same as the bubble tea straws. and they're free! and much longer than regular bbt straws however, there's an asian grocery chain called T&T, i'm pretty sure there are some all across Canada, and they (or at least the 2 that i've frequented) carry the bubbletea straws and i cant help but feel they cost less than $3. it's been a while since i bought any but i remember being pleasantly surprised...

She had told me her budget was only $250 and feed 200 and initially I didn't want to do it because it's not worth it, but i figured, whatever, I'll take the loss because it's for a good friend of my friend and it'll...
i've been doing these too, except instead of cutting out each letter individually, i just cut all the letters together, stick it in the freezer, and when it's chilled enough, just take off the excess cookie (the chilling helps for the little pieces from the letters with the holes)
