http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1992469/1992471/first-time-cakes, this was made from a clear chocolate candy mold. I made this from Wilton fondant and Wilton Gumtex. The clear plastic mold can probably be purchased at a cake or candy supply store. I hope this helps.
This evening I was researching how to make a silicone texture mat or rolling pin and I came across this website: http://www.chicagomoldschool.com/ProductsforChefs.htmlMaking a : http://www.chicagomoldschool.com/Articles/TexturedMat.pdf or Making a:http://www.sweetconnections.biz/CATALOGUE/CATALOGUE%20001-%20AcrylicRollingPin16.jpg I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of them especially with working with sugar molds. This is just sharing info, I hope I post in the...
I would like to know too, I'm saving up to buy edible ink cartridges. I've used two different brands of regular edible ink cartridges with sponges that really clogged up my print head on my iP3500. I thought it was from not being used weekly. Do the spongeless really work?
Check Icing Images website for the type of canon printers that have edible ink cartridges made for them. I just bought another iP3600 canon printer from Staples last month. I had an iP3500 that I blew the print head out. So the answer is yes you can buy a new printer, but not just any printer and it should be dedicated only to printing edible images with edible ink. Check the web for other sources of edible ink as well. I hope this helps.
Is this the cake lady or was it some else with the name "cake lady"?http://www.thecakeladyonline.com/videos.html
Large stacked wedding cakes, I may use Coast, I've use them and were quite simple to use. In the past I've used SPS. Most cakes I do are small, so I mainly do the "dowel and board' routine. I have yet to use the tea bubble straws.
Too true, I use to glue them on with royal icing, let dry, then carefully place on top cake.
With this type of plates from Wilton are you planning to use, the wooden or plastic dowels? You also need the "peg legs" : http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=3E311B76-475A-BAC0-5EF476FB742AB190&fid=BCA9E6B2-475A-BAC0-5BCF4FA5D1CCC994 to hold the separator plates in place on top of the cake it is resting on. Go to Wilton's website for the different types of cake construction. Are you just stacking? Then you don't need the pegs. Is it Pillars with plates, then...
How much Gumtex are you adding to the MMF? It may be too much for the amount of MMF you are working with if it is brittle and drying quickly. May be experiment with a 2" ball and adding about 1/8 teaspoon or a couple of pinches of Gumtex. Knead it in real good then let it sit in a plastic plastic wrap in a plastic storage bag for a hr. Then test its workability. I hope this helps. I also use shortening, just little with working with this. If it is really hard add drops of...
Another way to add scrolls to a buttercream cake that you may like to try, it may be more work than you might want to do, first find a scroll pattern you like, print it out, take wax paper and tape it over pattern and pipe scroll with your choice of round tips. If the pattern is going on a round cake, tape pattern to same size cake dummy or can or round craft paper mache' box to dry. For a square or rectangle shaped cake just let it dry flat. I did this as an experiment...
