I love the idea of the upside pan K8 thanks! Am going to try it for a cake today & see how it goes,   Claire
Hmmm, I hear you; unfortunately the fridge idea is a no go and I think I'd be too nervous to try the ice packs. Ugh, I hate this humidity - even before I started caking and now even more so. Thanks though
Does anyone know if it is better for cakes to be in front of or in a room where there is AC or a fan? I've read conflicting things about both so am not sure. We are in the midst of some really muggy weather in low 90's and I'm wondering what is the best one to use? I've tried with the AC but haven't seen much of a discernible difference. My AC is only a portable one and not very strong even though with the door of the room where the cakes are shut the room does get very...
 Agree on both counts.
When I want that look I cut out 2 and glue a toothpick in the middle and stick them together, I then do a border of a different or the same colour going all the way round so that you can't see it's 2. I hope this makes sense.
  That's a new one to me. Wow.
 I agree with this, Buddy on his cake show does a lot of steaming and it always looks to me like the cakes are really wet almost to the dripping point.I've steamed handbag cakes but not always, I prefer the more 'worn' look.
Congratulations! you won't make another cake without it; I bought one last year and love it. Be careful though, it's very very sharp - I've had to have stiches. Don't let that put you of though, just be super careful,I can't praise it enough it's wonderful plus Maureen is a total sweetheart if you need to email her about anything.
You're welcome, good luck!
