I don't know if it's been said yet or not but:

1) How to carve cakes - STEP BY STEP w/ DETAILS including what kinds of knives to use, etc.
2) Covering strange shapes w/ fondant - like carved cakes
3) How to get your fondant to work right! Fondant consistencies and how to tell if your fondant is the right consistency - some kind of test
4) Consistencies for frostings like French Buttercream or IMBC - HOW can I make it stiffer?? I'm guessing I can thin either w/ water or milk, but what if I want to make it stiffer??
5) How to make stand-up gumpaste or fondant figures
6) How to make sure your layers are even for stacking - do you use a level? How can you tell before you start stacking if your layers will be crooked? Besides looking at them - b/c they can look fine and then you put that second one on top and presto - crooked!
7) How to cut dowel rods
icon_cool.gif Oh wait I second the cake painting & airbrushing! (including what equipment to buy and maybe where you can get it in the U.S. & elsewhere)

Thanks! icon_smile.gif If anyone has answers to these kinds of things and wants to PM me - please feel free to do so!

I'de like to see

1. carving of more elaborate cakes

2. sugar pulling (i've done before but it is very hard to do)

3. Beautiful Monogram plaques

4, More gumpaste flowers. I'e seen enough roses and calla lillies. I want to learn orchids and the other host of cutters out there that I'm to afraid to purchase without some idea of how to uese them.

Also, tutorial are easier when the have pic or video that can be paused so that you can do each set along with the instructor.

I'd like to second the suggestions for stacked pillow cakes -- I'm particularly interested in how to put in supports for a cake like that in addition to the carving.

I also second fondant figures--preferably human

And I'd also like to see how to stack tall cakes like they do on the cake challenges in Food network--where they have one tall dowel gonig up from the cake board, and they slide the layers down the pole--and usually some of the tiers are at a crooked angle--am I asking too much? icon_redface.gif

Sorry I don't the time to do a full blown tutorial at the moment and my camera needs to be charged. I can however tell you how I made my gift box lid.


1. Invert the cake pan you used to bake the cake in and dust it with corn starch.
2. Roll out your gumpaste and cover the bottom of the cake pan.
3. Trim the sides of the gumpaste so they are all even.
4. Roll out your ribbon strips and use a bit of water or royal glue to attach the ribbon strips to build your bow directly on the lid.
5. Let the lid dry as long as possible. Try to make it about a week in advance.
6. Slip the lid off the cake pan and place a cake board underneath for added support and for ease of handling.
7. Use chopsticks or dowels to support the lid on the cake. Use 3 chopsticks. One shorter one in the back and 2 or equal length in the front to give the open look.

Here is the pic of the cake I made using this method. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.
