Can anyone recommend a tool to cut Wilton's white plastic dowels?Thanks in advance!
Have a new 5 quart Kitchenaid mixer. I am having trouble with holes in my cakes! I did have a 4 1/2 quart. I always used #2 speed to mix when using a cake mix. Never had holes. Now, I have holes! I am wandering if the extra power may have something to do with it. What speed do you use? The manual says #4, but I can see the bubbles in the batter and sure enough have holes. So, I cut the speed down to #2. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks! I will give it a try.

I find that making, icing, and decorating a cake takes a lot of time especially if it is a tier cake. I'm on a search for ways to cut my time. Does anyone a time saving tip they would share? One thing that saves time for me is moving the cake in and out of the refrigerator/freezer to set the icing. Also having a good workable icing makes the icing process faster. Any tip would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Have a request for a 3 tier topsy turvy cake made with buttercream. Not sure of the sizes yet. Decorations are fondant lollipops and flowers on sticks with a number on top. My question is what do people charge for such a cake?? Thanks in advance!
Is white or german chocolate cake mix better to use when making a red velvet cake?? I have been asked to make a red velvet cake. I not sure what it is suppose to taste like. I have only tasted red velvet one time. It was when I made it with german chocolate cake mix. It was good, but nothing I would rave about, but then I don't have anything to compare it to. Or would it be better to make one from scratch? I have found several scratch recipes that sound good, but a...
