Replying to an old post, but just in case someone else out there is looking...   I used Americolor Red Red and Violet mixed into a hot pink Fondarific pre colored fondant. It was almost an equal amount of red and violet...but just play around. I got a nice bright (yet darker, if that makes sense) eggplant color.
I love Cake Central and all it's members! Thank you all so much! I do have a bench scraper, but it's kind of small, so I got a larger one today. I will load on the frosting to begin and just smooth it off. All the tips were very helpful. I'll check out the videos, too.   Thanks again everyone!!!
Anyone have tips for smoothing buttercream? I know the water trick and the papertowel trick, but I really am just not good at it. Any advice would be awesome!! I love buttercream cakes that look like they are fondant.   TIA!!
Thanks - I agree! Watched a quick tutorial and it looks so simple. Going with the fondant.   Thanks for the responses!
I'm doing a safari cake this weekend and want the bottom tier to have a zebra print. What would be easier? Using fondant to make the zebra stripes or using a stencil and airbrushing?? If I do use fondant, does anyone have any tips or tricks?   Thanks in advance!!
Thanks everyone! I read some of the other threads and they were really helpful. Ellavanilla - it seems like it does take some time to get set up, but according to many posts, it's really worth it. Plus, I think there is a 10% discount from Cake Central. I hope you got to use it.   Jason - I'm pretty good with Excel. Not sure I'll use Turbo Tax for my taxes though, so that is something I'll need to consider with the Quickbooks recommendation.  Thanks!!   Thanks...
I was wondering if anyone out there has a home based business in VA? Did you set up an LLC or something similar? How about getting a tax ID #? I'm going through the process of getting a Home Occupancy permit and license. Even though I don't need to get inspected, I'll be doing it anyway. Just wanted some advice on setting up an LLC and getting a tax ID #.   Thanks!
I have heard $500 per year is a pretty good average for liability insurance. It's worth it just for the peace of mind. I'll be getting it once I'm up and running!!
Pros? Cons? What do you think about it? Is there any other software out there that you use to track spending, expenses, profits? How about with help on pricing?   Thanks in advance!
Thanks! The Tylose seemed to work pretty well. This isn't too bad for my first try...except that I didn't have any of my gel colors to make him the proper colors.
