Ok, crunch time. Help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay, guys. The cake that I was doing for a friend's daught for the 16th just got moved to the 7th(like a little over 2 days from now). I am doing the Go Crazy Quilt from the 2004 Yearbook. I have already prepared the MMF-colored and everything. But I was wondering if instead of using the white MMF to lay on before the quilt squares, could I get away with butter cream and then attach the squares to that? I would do more MMF but I am really crunched for time since I work and have 3 kids of my own. Any help would be great. And also since I don't have a 12x12 pan. Could I use my 13x9 (bake it twice and use that to get the xtra inches out? Help, help!!

I dont see why you couldnt lay it on the buttercream. I would probably lay the squars out and attach them together before laying them on the buttercream to avoid any spacing and to make them as one. Or you could just lay the squares on and use some buttercream to make it look like the squares were stiched together.

Thanks, cakeconfections! That is a perfectly wonderful I dea. I would have never thought of stitching the squares together with BC. And do you think that I could attatch them together with water since they are made of MMF? I swear I feel so rushed and utterly nutso right now. But I thank you for all the help!

You could, it is not going to hurt it. I have used water to attach things when using MMF.

Tanya..

I haven't been on in a few days... how did that cake turn out? I bet you did a great job!! I stress myself out everytime I do a cake! Then in the end I wonder why did I do that?? I guess we all just have to have it perfect. When things aren't going smoothly then we think it won't be perfect! When I'm decorating the phone always rings, someone comes to visit or the kids (teens) see me decorating & they try to make me nervous & kill them!!!! They do this.. Mom, I'm going to touch it, Mom, I'm going to touch it!! Ahhhh!! So YES... I feel your pain!!!!! ~TC~

Hiya, TC. I am still in progress on the cake. I am getting worried that the mmf will be stiff by the time of the party. So I am debating whether to finish it tonight or try to put on the mmf and final decorations tomorrow. What to do? I just don't want to get jammed on the last minute stuff, you know. Any idea if this stuff will stay soft on top of the BC?
