I'm still baffled and totally surprised by the fact that violet coloring cancels out yellow and makes it white. I haven't tried it but I know others have and apparently it works. Still hard to believe.

This one has to "take the cake" for me. icon_biggrin.gif

Just a couple questions about your hints - how much caramel flavoring are you using and do you just use a toothpick tip of violet in your buttercream to turn it white?

I would have to say the FBCT is the best tip so far for me. But I love reading all the tips and advice! I have a little binder that is just waiting to be filled from all of the things I have copy and pasted into a Word doc. icon_smile.gif

I too would love to know more about this caramel coffee mate flavoring! Do tell how much to add to cakes/bc. icon_smile.gif

I have so many things I have learned off here than in my Wilton classes I am currently taking. (Not saying I didn't love my classes or anything, because I do!)

1. Viva paper towels rock!

2. FBCT's are great!

3. Use the flower nail as a heating core in the middle of my larger cakes in addition to using the cake wraps to help keep the cake more level and cooked evenly.

4. Reduce the heat in the oven to also help keep it cooked evenly.

5. MMF

6. Flavor combinations and how to use coffee creamer to flavor cakes and icing

7. Cake balls

8. Cupcake cakes - how to make them (never heard of them before CC)

9. Using crumbled up cake and toasting it to make 'sand'.

10. All of the great help and support from everyone here on CC. I've learned things that my instructor didn't even know.

The tips I like the best are FBCT, chocolate transfer, Viva method and MMF.

Not just for cake either:

Gray hair can sometimes look yellow. Use a product that has a violet base which neutralizes the yellow color and makes the yellow appear white.



Just ask any hairdresser lol...

I don't know how to pick even just a few! I cruise CC for tips for every cake I make! I have bought tools based on reviews of other CC members and taken back other tools based on reviews too. I love the tutorials and getting inspiration from such an amazing group of decoraters. Also when attempting something challenging and/or new the support is just incredible! I had never heard of a lot before coming to CC but I have to say the fbct is a great time saver and the tutorials for making characters like Aine2's that is just amazing to me. (I hope I spelt her screen name correctly, her cakes blow me away) I think the best thing I have learned is that there are so many amazing decorater's here that are so willing to share their expertise that the sky's the limit.

There are sooo many things I have learned. These are just a few off the top of my head....
--coordinating your cakeboard with wrapping paper or scrapbook paper to your cake
--Viva towels - I'm somewhat of a perfectionist and it use to take me FOREVER to get a cake smooth. Now it only takes seconds.
--freezing cakes - saves me soo much time and I'm less stressful
--MMF
--Americolor
--endless cake ideas
--just knowing that there is an endless help and encouragement within a click away

Thank you all!

I still want to make a cupcake cake soon - it looks easy enough with the tutorial!

I would have to say using cake scraps to make cake balls. Everyone loves them.
