I agree with you IHATEFONDANT, if I want a cake it has to have filling, usually when I make a carved cake (I'm doing one right now) I use Dulce de Leche filling, I love it, it has the consistency of stiff BC and it holds great.

Also I sent an e-mail asking about the spary stuff and also PM'ed Mary Alice, may be we are lucky and they answer! icon_rolleyes.gif

Hey All! The sprayer thing duff was using on the Leno cake was is his favorite new tool that mike mccarey from mikes amazing cakes told him about - it's a preval brand sprayer and it's just an aeron sprayer with a little tube out the bottom and the bottom of it screws into a glass jar that you can fill with anything...we use vanilla vodka and luster dust for our sparkley sheen. duff got them at home depot in the paint department. Here's a link: http://www.prevalspraygun.com/

Hope this helps and hope you all have a spectacular weekend!

best,

I loved last night's show. Duff was so good with the Brownies. Even though he had his big Jay Leno cake to prepare for, it really seemed like he spent a lot of time with them.

I loved that Duff tried using the Wood Graining tool. I have been wanting to try that. While he was trying, all I could think was that his chocolate seemed waaaaaaaaaaay to thick. No the coating he was putting on the tool, but the actual consistancy of the chocolate seemed too thick.

Now I want to see if it would work using thinner chocolate - like paint consistancy.

Thanks Mary Alice!!

Hey I thought the rose looked neat too - I've never seen that either.

Did anyone catch what the corn was made of? I thought they said cereal bars.... do you think they meant rice krispy treats?

Oh and did anyone see him try to use the wood grainer? I know I've seen someone on here do it - I'll have to look in my pictures - everyone was giving him a hard time at the shop for trying it but I know I've seen it work!!! Maybe I'll have to ask the CC'er to contact him and let him know how to use it on fondant icon_smile.gif I think they just painted it with food coloring/gel/paste and then rolled it over......they didn't try to use chocolate.....

Thank you so mucho Mary Alice!! I'm sure we'll take advantage of the information icon_biggrin.gif

Hey guys, I just did a quick search on Ebay and they have them, I just ordered mine!! I think that's a great alternative for the ones that don't own an airbrush! icon_rolleyes.gif

I wondered the same thing about how the cakes tasted with no filling. The premade stuff doesn't really bother me too much. This question came to mind when I was watching the birthday cake surprise challenge. I wonder what that kid thought of eating that cake.

AHA! Found it! It's by sharibearie!

She used the wood graining tool to do this! Cool!


OH yeah - you might want to see what her final cake looked like - I don't want to give the impression that the cake was just a big piece of wood! icon_smile.gif

I used the wood graining tool for home projects and I think that to use it with cakes you would use the same concept that for crafts, I usually prime or give a base color paint and then I use paint and glaze and add a second coat and while still wet i use the tool, so what I would do is kinda what Duff did yesterday, paint the fondant and then use the tool, I neves seen putting chocolate or anything on the tool, that's just my opinion and experience I may be wrong.

I'm really enjoying this show, first for the entertainment value, but also because I know alot of regular, non-cake decorators who also turn it on.
I think it is helping my business tremendously, because people see those cool fondant cakes, and then call us because we are the only company in my area who does them!
I liked the crab bucket...it was really cute. I always wondered if the woodgraining tool worked or not on fondant....I thought it might be better with a food coloring and vodka than chocolate. I'm also wondering if anyone dared eat the engine cake after the Leno show.
I love my lil' munchkin

I finally got a chance to watch the show for the first time! I loved it!! My DH absolutely loves Duff's personality!! It wasn't until last night as we were watching that my DH reminded me that Duff was from a cake challenge that we watched sometime ago. And then to know he owns Charm City Cakes which is right in Baltimore!! How exciting!! They all did a wonderful job on the featured cakes. The Brownies that visited were too cute!
