I want to write or cut out or whatever...a baby's name for a cake. I've tried a cricut cake and hated it. Cutters are too big. I'm not awesome at piping the letters. Is there a trick or tip that someone can give me. I just want to write (simple font) on a plaque. Similar to the below picture. (Cake by Erica O'Brien)
I have to cover a 10" x 4" hexagon cake with black fondant (the worst!!) Any advice. Any time I've covered with black, it's disastrous. Thinking about panels, but never did that before. Please help. Working with FondX Elite black.
I'm making a two tier cake and I think both tiers need to be 3 layers. I'm worried the bottom tier (9" rounds) will fall on itself because it's too heavy. It's a pretty heavy chocolate cake...not too dense. Any suggestions? Am I worrying for no reason?
I'll definitely post pictures. Honestly, the chocolate cake recipe is off of allrecipes.com. It's called One Bowl Chocolate cake. It's pretty standard, but we get SO many compliments and requests for it. We do change it up a bit with some special ingredients every now and then :-)
Thanks to you both! I like the zebra look (and the outside of the cake is going to be leopard, so it's a perfect idea!)
I think I will just stick to my two different cakes...my chocolate cake is to die for. My butter yellow is good, too, but the chocolate...I don't want to change it!
I have a request for a standard marble cake. Can I just use my butter yellow cake recipe and my chocolate cake recipe and swirl them together? They bake in approximately the same time.
Thanks in advance for your help!!
