Hi all, olsjhs, your cuppies and the Mickie Mouse cake is fantastic!
As I'm making cakes as a business, I include the prices of the boards and the boxes to the price. Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy them in bulk? YOu can buy them from ebay as well. There is a seller " Confectioner's Paradise", and his prices are quite reasonable.
Sabz, if you are good at drawing, draw a tiara for the size you want and go over it by using a claygun and modleing paste. Just a thought!
eilidh, I'm a member of the British Sugarcraft Giuld and its £22 for the whole year. But I haven't been to any of their meetings yet. You can be a member of the message board for free. I know loads of UK members here are members.
The Asda story is so ture! That happened to me once as well. A customer wanted a round cake with George from Pepper Pig on it. I thought I would do a buttercream transfer. So I quoted her £45. Few days later she called and said she saw one in Asda for £7!
When things like this happens I always think that its not my loss, its their loss!
