I haven't been on CC as much as I have been previously. Since the website redesign, do we no longer get to see the "Most Popular Cakes" and "Most Popular New Cakes?" ...I only see the most recent cakes scrolling past on the home page. As much as I support this site allowing all of us, even beginners, to post our cakes, I turn here for creative inspiration, and in all honesty, what I see on the homepage now is like searching for a needle in a haystack. I have to check...
I live in Allen, the suburb just north of Plano. (Both are in Collin County.) What do you need in Plano?
Leave each of your tiers on a separate cardboard, but YES, if it is going to be tiered during travel, you should definitely dowel it all the way through. Use a pencil sharpener to sharpen the end of a 1/4" dowel to a point, then hammer it all the way through the center of the cake.
I did a cake for my daughter's preschool's Teacher Appreciation Week that was a big hit with the teachers. I didn't charge, but here it is:http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1211284I always think that a tiered cake is much more fun to decorate than sheets. You can incorporate the school's mascot, colors, and a message. Have fun and be sure to post a pic so we can all see what you decided to do!
I just sent letters to Senators Kay Bailey Hutchinson and John Cornyn and also to my Rep, Ralph M. Hall since they represent us who are here in Dallas.

Last year, I bought a roll of the ready made Pillsbury gingerbread dough at Kroger, and it was so awesome to work with! I went back to buy more, but it was sold out! and it was sold out at all of the Krogers and WalMarts near me. So this year when I saw it, I bought 10 rolls and froze them! It saves so much time and tastes delicious!
Ok, I have such a difficult time with royal icing, but I have about a dozen occasions I need to bake for this season, and cookies make up so much faster than cakes. The Wilton recipe for royal icing calls for:4 c. powdered sugar (sifted)3 T. merengue powder6 T. WaterI use a stand mixer and only used 5T water instead of the 6 called for. It says to beat it for 7-10 minuted until stiff peaks form. I beat it for at least 20 minutes and still my peaks were soft. I kept...
Ipretty much copied mine from Wilton. I think it was on the box that the castle kit came in...http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1186440
The teachers went gaga over the cake I did for my daughter's preschool Teacher Appreciation Week. I'm not sure how to put a link in here, but I'll try:http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1211284.htmlThe theme was "Kids bloom, thanks to you, Sunshine School Teachers!" I used fondant flower cut-outs and put kids faces in the center of each flower. Hope that helps! Good luck!!!Ann
