I am on page 31 and have copied and pasted 60 tips to word pad.  I just found the thread today.  Right now it is good therapy for my  as I am trying to come down off of a bad anxiety attack.  Seems to be working.

OK, I just finished reading the entire post and copy and paste the points to word pad.  I have a tip and a couple of questions.

 

 

Tip, add strong cooled coffee to your chocolate cake for a more intense flavor.  You won't taste the coffee.

 

Questions.

 

How do you paint with cocoa?

 

How do you make your own photo transfers?

 

How do you reverse an image?

 

Thank you.

One answer:

If you have a graphics program (on a Windows machine you should have Paint; there are other free programs on the web) find Rotate and click on Flip Horizontally.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Using a bench scraper for perfectly smooth buttercream.  I had pretty much given up on ever perfecting this, but the bench scraper makes it SO easy!

Can you explain to me #1 & #2 above?

post #506 of 510

It took a couple days but I finally finished the whole list! I absolutely love this site and I have learned far too many things to mention.

For #1 I think they are talking about the roll of grip liner you get at the dollar store.  Cut a piece to put on the floor of your car and put the cake on it.  The cake won't slide.  You don't need a real big piece either.  Works wonderfully.

 

I have never tried the SPS system so hopefully someone else can explain it.   I think there is a sticky on it, but not positive.

Thank you.

I got the answer on the reverse image.  Thankyou very much.   How do I do the other two?

 

So far I have a word document with over 70 tips out of this thread.  Wow.  Thanks everybody.

 

One more tip.  Use a 12" ceramic tile with rubber feet from the picture dept glued to the back of the tile.  Buy a neutral tile to go with anything.  Just wipe or scrub clean.  Do not clean in dishwasher because the back is not glazed.

The transfer can be done with piping gel. Print out an image, trace it onto parchment paper with piping gel, and then stick it on the cake where you want it. The piping gel will transfer onto the cake and you just pipe over it. No one will ever see the gel. 

 

Cocoa painting is talked about at length in this thread http://cakecentral.com/t/8252/cocoa-painting-a-work-in-progress

 

And what do you do with the tile?
