I've received a request for a decorated cake with real, sliced strawberries in between the cake layers. I have a coworker who loves to cook new things and one day she brought in a cake with the strawberries slices in between two chocolate cake layers. One of my other coworkers loved the taste of fresh strawberries inside the cake and knew that I decorate cakes so she asked if I was able to do the same thing. I figured that the lady who brought in the cake to the office had...

It's a boxed cake with buttercream. This cake is going to be a little more simpler than others I've done. I understand that prices vary from town to town but I need some guide lines. Do you charge for the cost then a certain % on top of that? Or do you look at the current prices at your local...

Many people loved what they had but couldn't give much advise about the other tyes of KA's because they never used a different type. Well I'm in the same boat, I got my first KA the end of last year.

I emailed Betty Crocker to see if they were taking it off the shelves but they said no and I should be able to get it a a whole list of stores. Well I'm still having problems finding it. What a pain.

Hey everyone, especially chocolate lovers,How chocolatly does the Wilton Chocolate Buttercream taste? Is it the best kind of icing that you could use to decorate a cake for a chocolate lover? Or is there a simple, different receipe that you would be willing to share? I just got asked to do a birthday cake for this Friday for a coworker. She loves chocolate and coffee. Thank you for your honest answers.AMY
I have put royal icing flowers on a buttercream frosted cake several times and my flowers softed about two days later. I mean they didn't melt and they held their shape but they crumbled easier. My purple flowers slightly colored my white buttercream but only underneath where they laid. Hope this helps.AMY
I'm running so late that I'm a day behind. Anyways, I hope everyone had a great Easter. God bless you all, today and always.AMY
