With your app cake designing program, is it possible to be able to design a cake with satellites cakes? The cake design programs so far only allows the placement of cakes to be stacked bottom to top only. More selection of decorations, such as fondant swags, more flowers and borders. I love cake graphic designing!
Just a tip: pipe a circle of buttercream frosting on the bottoms of your dried royal icing flowers, whether they have a RI spike or not. This helps holds the flowers in place. This old technique from Wilton has helped me in the past. I have pictures of flowers on sides of my cakes done many moons ago, feel free to look. One cake in teal and white was delivered in summer, 100 degrees with ugly humidity.
When spraying the can, did you hold it at least 6-8 inches back from the stencil? With this stuff it can't be sprayed real close and no full blasts. Lightly press when spraying. Make sure you practice before putting on your actual project to gauge the best distance. It sounds like the spray can may have been held too close or maybe repeatedly spraying without letting each application dry in trying to achieve a sold color. I hope this helps. Best wishes!
Sorry, it didn't work out! What happened?
Hello puffpuff, last year I taught our Church Summer Camp Kids how to decorate cake with little means. Start at a dollar store, buy in the floral section round styrofoam circles. Glue 2 together with glue or wrap in saran wrap. Also purchase measure cups to make practice icing. I buy their clear chopping mats to work on when measuring ingredients or for making gumpaste flowers. Recipe for Practice Icing1 cup Shortening1 teaspoon vanilla, optional5 - 6 tablespoons water4...
Corsage pins work pretty good too for holding the stencil in place. Make sure your cake has been chilled in the refrigerator first. Then pin the stencil to cake. With and pointed angled small spatula or a narrow width plastic putty knife or small bowel scrapper, spread your thinned down frosting on. Don't be afraid go over stencil again with no frosting to take off the excess. Spread in one direction helps also. Unpin the stencil, remove and voila! Wash your stencil with...
Yes, you can stencil with the Wilton Color mist spray, this is the first method I learned to do before learning to use an airbrush. I'm in the learning phase with the airbrush. The stencil came from here on CC.Color Mist Spray Stenciled cakes:http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1733163/joshuas-birthday
I have read that Bettercreme decorated on a cake with a non perishable filling,is safe to leave out for 5 days, I never do that, I keep my decorated cakes in the refrigerator. Go to Rich's Bettercreme website, they have what is called "Cake Pros". Best Wishes!
I too have a degree in Nutrition. Ok, this will tell a little about my age, I took the Wilton home lessons, read their books, magazines and looked at their videos. I have to admit I've learned so much more from here on CC, youtube, internet websites - bloggers and other books. Long story, short, I'm a visual learner too and self taught.
This is a cake I did for a 30th birthday and mom was expecting. This Mommy-to-be wanted her cake in black, purple and white. She loves shoes, I guess wine and stars? It is what she asked for, this is what I put on her cake (LOL)! She really has a great personality!http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1992469/30th-birthday-for-laque
