Hi, yes the box is for a tiered cake. $10 a box OMG. Well I guess I will buy them locally. I thought $5 was too much but looks like a steal now.
kakeladi, Thank you so much great idea.
Hi,From this formum I learned to buy my boxexs from Sam's and have saved some money. However, they only have the sheet cake & 10'" round ones. I was wondering where is a good place to order the heavy 2 peice boxes for large 2 tier cakes from. I just paid $5 for a 14 X14 at my local supply store.Also, is there a good place for fillings?
Hi all,Need a little help. I am making a fireman theme cake for my nephew next weekend. I am using chocolate mold for the decorations and fondant for the flames and water on the cake. I was thinking how cool it would look if I could get the cake to smoke too.Since I will not be in the classroom for the party I was wondering was there anything other than dry ice I could use for a smoke effect on a cake? I just want a little smoke for the singing of happy birthday.Thanks,

I went to go apply the luster dust with a little lemon juice and it looks awful. I also tried applying the dust with a dry brush and it looked dull. What am I doing wrong? Is there anyway to get some color or accent on them. Thanks,

Thank you all so very much and have a wonderful Holiday. Not sure I am going to stay focus at work for the next 2 hours. I wanna go home and make my colums.

I will be making a yellow cake with the cake extender. 12 X 12 square and a 8" round are my pan sizes. But I have a few quick questions.1. What do you use to make the colums? I was thinking of gumpaste & fondant? Or is rice krispy covered gumpast better to use?2. Do you cut out of the cake to fit in the colums or just place them next to the...
Peace & blessing. Good luck hope it all works out.
Thank you all for responding. I will try filling it higher next time. Nobody has complained yet but I want my cakes to be as professional & beautiful looking like all of you.
bake 2 twice for one cake? I need a little advise. I made a cake last week a 2 tier 10" & 14" square both baked in a 3" pan. I used a box mix with the cake extender receipe. I filled both pans 1/2 way and it grew to about 3/4 full. (Is there a reason it rises lower when the extender is used?) The cake looked fine and the clients husband liked it when he picked up.However, it know that I just got the email with the photos and looking at the gallery cakes here that I...
