Wow robinscakery, love it!! Where did you get the tree bark cupcake stand? And what kind of deposit etc do you suggest if you want to book brides on site? Thanks!
Thanks so much! This really helps Kara and JWinslow! I found a couple of chevron templates that I'll print and cut out. Really appreciate the help!!!
Thanks so much!! I am going to do a trial - it seems pretty simple when you read it, hopefully it turns out well. Appreciate the help!!!!
Thanks cupcakemaker! Yeah, I've seen her work, but her chevrons are more uniform and same in size. She does use a paper template to hand cut them, like Kara suggested. Yeah scrumdiddlycakes, that's what I'm concerned about. - stretching and ruining them. I haven't tried the wax paper technique before, just not sure if it'll work with lining up the chevron stripes straight on the cake... :-/
Agree! Give a base of ivory or gold then paint or dust with gold dust.
You could also try using Rich's Whip topping or Bettercreme.
Thank you Kara!! :) Or do you think cutting out individual pieces and placing them in a zig zag manner to make a chevron pattern would be easier?
Hi!!   I was wondering how is the thick and thin chevron on the bottom tier of this cake cut? What kind of stencil could I use? I have some chevron cutters, but they are not like the chevron pattern on this cake.   Appreciate any help please! Thanks!!   
The lace on the cake is Sugar Veil, and the patterns you see on the cake are made by spreading Sugar Veil on their special mats. The sugar veil icing dries and produces edible lace which you have to place on the cake like the picture.   Check out the website for Sugar Veil and you can get info on ordering and using it.
 Agree! My kids are 5 and 3, and I do a lot of late nights, and work in the evenings when my husband is back from work.  He is also responsible for the kids on the weekends.. haha! ETA - I really want to do farmers markets, but with the weekends booked up regularly, I don't want to overwhelm myself with being at the markets, while trying to find time to do custom orders :) If you want to do farmers markets, do just those, and bake Fri evenings/nights for Saturday markets.
