ChristianCakeBaker -- I love threads like the one you started. icon_smile.gif

Perhaps if you asked for best tips in certain categories...like cupcakes (there is a very long thread on that going on), or BC piping, BC smoothing, fondant work, time saving tips, etc. it might help get more replies in those categories. You can also do a search for those too.

JanH recently posted a very helpful thread on all types of roses, for example.

Just a thought! I'd be happy to share (and learn), but am not sure what interests you most. icon_smile.gif

Mine is that I really don't know what I'm doing.

My best kept secret is my honey cookie recipe; and it will stay that way!!!!!!
My other secret is that almost every sculpted cake needs to be reviewed by my DH before it is covered to make sure that the proportions are right. After 7 year, I still don't trust myself.

My best kept secrets are:

-always use IMBC, ganache, or fresh homemade fondant
-always devote enough time and attention to my baked creations.

My secrets (most learned here, of course):

- Using creamer in place of most of the water in cake recipes.
- Using flavored yogurt instead of sourcream to enhance flavor.
- Using white chocolate pudding mix in white cakes (vanilla imparts a yellow hue).
- Bake even strips
- You don't need to grease and flour--Pam works just fine.
- LoRann butter flavor in MMF is the BOMB! (tastes like BC)
- Glue: meringue powder, PS, and a tad water.


There's more, but I can't think of them at the moment so I'll post them when I remember! icon_biggrin.gif

my best kept secret isn't one... it's just to enjoy what you do. The love and joy you have for your art will shine through in your creation.

I'm with MacsMom...

-I add a box of pudding in with most of my recipes
-I use coffee creamer to replace milk/cream in some of my recipes
-Yogurt, sour cream and buttermilk are also good additions to cake batter
-I also use the coffee creamer in certain frostings and fillings

I would've never thought to use the coffee creamer had it not been for my visits to cc!
