I hope that question made sense.. icon_confused.gif



Is kind of like a topsy but is not really a deep hole is more like an indentation on the buttercream..Is like a small cradle for the cake to lie in there. I am not cutting a hole in the cake, is just lowering the level on the buttercream.

The funny part..I had more trouble with that cake being a dummy than if it was a real one!

I add liquid depending on how soft I needed. If the cake is too crumbly I will add some liquid. But I dont want it to be to wet either, that can cause a lot of problems too.

I have a question, why do you put wax paper on the top and the bottom of the cake board?

Thanks



I put my own wax paper

Edna you rock girl! This is perfect timing, my daughters wedding is coming up in April! Your experience and precise decorating is astonishing to watch! I will have to say most of what I have learned on cake decorating has come from your video's. Your a joy to watch and the music is always fun. I cannot wait to see your buttercream video I actually have been hoping you would post one, I have been to your site many times thinking you already had one. Congrats on a superrrrrr Video!

Would post chocolate man here for you but I don't wanna lock it up ...hehhehe lol

This was my reaction exactly!!! I'm fairly new to CC, and I've noticed that Edna is always so helpful and is the voice of experience. I was honestly expecting a little gray-haired grandmother type.

WOW!!!! icon_eek.gif Could I have been any more wrong????

Thanks, Edna, for sharing your time and talent!
