Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Like I said, if it pisses you off, pass it by! WTF is so hard to understand about that? You have newbies who come on here and see stuff like this who may have a legitiment question, and now won't ask because of fear of being attacked! Even though this thread is 3 years old, I'm glad I commented... It's clear some of you think this behavior is fine... I don't.

You should take your own advice.

You were jumping all over people and telling them to chill out. It's ok to express concern or caution someone about taking on a challenge in a tight spot. As I said, most people want to help. That includes those offering a word of caution or some brutal honesty.

If you don't like it move on. You don't get to dictate opinions or who can hate them!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Baking-mama and monalisasmileca--Welcome to the Forum!!!!  Baking-mama, your daffodil is delightful!  That is a very ambitious cake for someone who is just learning and you did very well.  I'll be everyone was so impressed that they didn't want to eat it!

Thanks for the links! I took a look at both of them.  Appreciate you taking the time to help.

Thanks. icon_smile.gif I tried my best. I did it all in about 5 hours total. Baking included.

The 40 degree weather didn't help. Melting, sticky, fondant. Yuck haha.

I could kiss you for this ;-) Good thing we are states apart, since we would both regret it, lol!

It's the generation. A good portion of the late teen, 20 something crowd collectively needs a spanking, write lines, and have their noses stuck in the corner. There are many, many exceptions, and I don't want to alienate them, but I am sure that most of them will agree with me as well. There are those in every generation, but they are producing...I will off myself, or become a hermit once the ME ME ME GENERATION's children are old enough to use the computer... Those kids will be just too precious for words... I miss the baby boomers... and the Greatest Generation is practically all gone, my Grandpa and Grandma are 86 and 81 now, and won't be here much longer.

The one who has made this cake is awsus and she is a member of this forum. I have pmed her but I havent got any answers so I am waiting.

It might be easy for you to say just do this and this and this but you have to take in consideration that this is my first cake and therefore I need extra help icon_wink.gif

@others

Thanks for the comments

While some people here might be able to offer some ideas on how to make it, as Texas did so nicely, asking to basically be taught how to make the components of this cake is a bit much. I think just about everything that has been suggested can be found through you own effort via a Google search. I don't think it's the responsibility of anyone/everyone here to do your research.

 

I know Wilton teaches how to make daffodils using either royal icing or buttercream in one of the first two courses, but I don't think they would do this cake justice. This looks like gum paste or something similar to me.

 

 

ETA that I do now see that this thread is 3 years old. I will say that it is not my first thought to check the originating date of a thread. I see the topic on page one of the forum section I'm in, start reading, and reply as desired. Not sure how or why the thread was dug up after 3 years, but if old threads aren't to be commented on then they should be locked. Otherwise, people can and will reply to them.
