Anyone had a chance to try out the new Squires Kitchen sugarpaste? http://www.squires-shop.com/index.php?p=product&id=9756&parent=100
Hi there all you lovely UK bakers.
I recently tried to make sugar lace using the Sugarveil powder and silicone mats. It took an awful long time to dry. I tried putting it in the oven, but still 2 days later, the lace is tacky and breaks up when I try to remove it from the mat.
I was wondering if any of you have had similar experiences. Is it our current weather that is to blame?
Hi Guys :)
I thouight I should join here, as I liv in the UK, i have plenty a couple of questions for you guys in the UK :)
1. Im openining a small cake/bake shop selling, muffins, brownies, traybakes sandwiches etc, not bespoke cakes or anything although Ive done a course in that its not really what I consider myself to be good, at more of a simple home baked food shop, can I ask your opinion on my avatar? Its our proposed shop logo, which is based in a village
2. Costings... i'll admit, Im a chef, I nver got into the admin side of things, I have spent numerous hours trying to cost things properly and i dont seem to be getting anywhere, I will be using a big supplier so costs are generally cheaper than the supermarket, but in terms oof working out the actual sale price of each different cake/tray bake as they will all be made fresh seems a very tedious process, any spreadsheets etc out there that might help?
I have attended a number of Debbie Drown's workshops which are fantastic - I can highly recommend. I also try to get books from the library first to see if I like them before buying. I found DVDs esp good for making flowers as you can stop, start and replay as you are making them. Youtube is also good for just generally expanding your knowledge on various topics.
oh wow a uk thread!! :)
I have a question, how can you get very white buttercream?? I'm wanting to pipe some 'white' roses on to cupcakes to make a white rose bouquet for my mums mothers day cake, but I don't quite get it white enough! I use half trex and half stork, which yes makes it paler but still not white as I've seen in some photos! Hope someone can help :)
