is there anyway to make this look better, satin ice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have always used mmf, today I tried satin ice. Was pourous looking on cake to begin with...

Then I sat it in the front seat to drive home and slammed on brakes to avoid a wreck and it flipped upside down onto the floorboard.

It's just a display cake, not for eating!!! Is there a way to smooth this out with out taking it apart?

Oh the head is ganache...

I would try wetting my hands with warm water and rubbing the $#%$ out of it. As if you are smoothing it all over. Or maybe try smoothing it with some shortening first (since we know the water will make it all sticky but maybe when it dries it'll be right???).

I dunno...just thoughts....I'd try anything before having to redo.

Well, I'm going to try something. I was thinking water or crisco too. I just didn't know if there was a fool proof trick! I'm having all kinds of cake problems today....

I think my spirits are low and it's affecting my work?

Oh yes, your spirits...I read your other post about the culture shock moving and working there. Hopefully, somehow, you can remember that all major change in life is stressful even if we think we are doing fine with it. Nothing will help but the passing of time and becoming acclimated to your new surrounds. And, hopefully, once the dust settles and the woman you are replacing retires then maybe you can have a hand in changing the way things are done. Or, if not, then getting your own place and doing it your way.

Maybe...

But in the meantime it sucks to have your spirits down and then score some cake disasters on top of that.

Just know that this too shall pass.....

Oh, and when I read your post my first thought was that you need to make your experiences there a running blog....sorry but your misery there makes for some fairly entertaining reading.....

hth..keep your head up...time will pass....you will be better.

I'm a newbie, sorry I can't help. I'll have to agree with CakeDiosa, start a blog. I read your earlier vent and while it does suck I thought it was funniest read! Not that I'm laughing at you but the people around you and your new experiences! I'd subscribe to your blog. Keep your head up, it's painful but you are at the beginning of a new life! That's exciting! Good luck.
