The Bridal Shower cake is beautiful. I'm sure your cake looks wonderful, we are always our worst critics when it comes to cakes we have done. lol

Just got home after a trip to my mom's. Grateful to be home, grateful for my kids, grateful to not have a cake to work on tonight since my hands (and mind) are so shaky right now. The car in front of me coming home hit a cow. Black cows + black nights + black road = accidents waiting to happen. And when it happens right in front of you it makes you think twice.

I didn't find a cake, but it looks like the Basque cross fits nicely into a circle. I found this stained glass:

Do you have a color scheme to work with? You could make a template of the cross so you can fit it onto the top of a round cake--maybe w/a border & piping so it looks like a stained glass. You could do the pieces out of fondant or pipe the "lead" in black and then fill in the "glass" with colored piping gel.

HTH

Does anyone have any experience with edible images. I sent DH to Food City to get an EI made for a cake that I have to deliver at noon tomorrow. I went to put the EI on the cake and I'm thinking that something's wrong, but I have never used an EI before. There's a paper with my image printed on it and then underneath there's a shite sheet that apears to be what the image should have been printed on. The paper that the image is printed on has a very slick side to it that the ink is on. The ink has not absorbed any, and the ink has partially come off onto the plastic wrap that they had placed over it. The problem is that the Food City is 40 miles away. Any suggestions?

Evening everyone! Hubby and I just got home from dinner and a movie. It's so nice to be able to go do something on a whim since the kids aren't kids anymore. icon_smile.gif

I'm struggling to learn SCAL at the moment. I need to figure out how to add nodes because what I am doing doesn't seem to be working. I have a cupcake order for tomorrow. The fondant pieces for those are cut out, the frosting is made, and the cupcakes are in the freezer so I will thaw the cupcakes in the morning and decorate them.

4 dozen Pac Man cookies done, last batch on the cooling racks so I can get them on the party tray.

They turned out very cute. I tinted the NFSC dough yellow and then baked w/yellow sprinkles & a single mini-chip for the eye. No frosting for me--woohoo!

I briefly toyed w/the idea of cutting a bunch of small fondant hearts to make the bow for Ms Pac Man. At this point, I think that is a step past crazy that I don't need to take.

Hubby is finally heading home from work (he's still an hour away--boo) and my boys have finally stopped battling for control of the couch. Mama needs an adult beverage.

That doesn't sound right at all. I used EI on the cake I did today. There is very distinct, thin layer of frosting on a sort of slick paper. The actual frosting area is about a 1/2in smaller than the backing paper and looks matte. It sounds like they put the paper through the printer upside down and printed onto the slick backing paper.

That's what I though Kristy. Like I said, I have never used one, but it just didn't seem right. Is there any way to make it work. Do you think I could lay the frosting sheet on the paper and maybe get the image to be on the under side. Would that work?

Is the chickie fondant or BC?

I just watched a "Hop" food challenge and one of the competitors did the chicks from the movie. She scratched all over the yellow fondant w/a fork to give it texture and then airbrushed a slightly darker yellow. I think she added either luster dust or sanding sugar over that--she called the process flocking.

For BC, could you use a grass tip and then sanding sugar on that?

I don't think so. If the ink is on the slick part, it won't dry and will just smear. If you try to have it show through from the underside, the image will be reversed.

If you have any way to take it back & make them re-do it, I would. Is there anywhere closer that could print it?
