Friday Night Cake Club 8/3/12 - Page 2

Why did you cut down on the Dream whip??? I think that's one of the ingredients that keeps it fluffy, less crusty. As for the sugar. I learned the summer, yes the hard way, to make positively sure that the sugar is pure cane. Beet sugar changes the texture and crusting. UGH. And you should see what beet sugar does to fondant! Grainy mess! Oddly enough they taste ok, it's the texture that is totally off.

I seriously LOL'd when I read about how you "served" the filling...just too funny and SO something I would have done! LOL!

I'm headed off to bed. I have to work at my other job in the morning and that's just 8 hours away...gotta do some sleeping in the meantime! LOL!

Night y'all!

Idydebi said when Crisco got rid of the trans-fats she didn't notice the difference in her frosting. Dream Whip has corn starch in it. I thought perhaps they reformulated it and added more cornstarch so I cut back on it to see if it made a difference. Interestingly, it also has yellow dye in it. I'd prefer they leave that out so my frosting is as white as possible, but what do I know?

My powdered sugar doesn't say what kind of sugar. It does have cornstarch in it, though. Perhaps they reformulated? I use an off-brand (Aldi) and always have. Sam's Club brand is gritty for me and the Meijer brand is a bit gritty, too. I'd have to use name brand if I switched and I don't care for the price of it. If I must, I must but I'll whine a bit about it first. icon_smile.gif

I'm off to bed, too. We're going to the State Fair tomorrow for the first time in years so I have to up and going early (for me). Night y'all!

Cat, the favors were not edible. I made baby faces from cold porcelain, add a round petal bonnet and ribbons. Added this to a clear swizzle stick. Also teeny tiny crochet diapers, a onsie that are pinned on, and pacifiers on a rope ribbon. The lollipops were made with Nemo from frosting sheets and other baby items.

Hi Cat and everyone,
It is Saturday night here in the land of Oz and I am busy baking a butterscotch and caramel swirl mudcake , and them some little cakes using a brownie lollipop cake pan that I just got from the latest Avon catalogue. they are sort of cone shaped and I am going to dip them in a caramel ganache. They are just to take for a Show meeting so it won't matter if they aren't spectacular those ladies will eat anything .

I did a birthday cake on Friday for another decorator , we all have a deal that we as decorators don't have to make our own birthday cakes. I did think it was just going to be a few of us for lunch , the cake was a bit of a rush job , a lemon mudcake with passionfruit cream cheese filling . I just did one of my simple bow cakes . I was slightly horrified when I realised that there were two cake judges amongst the party. However I got rave reviews so it all turned out okay.

The cake in the oven now is for a birthday on Tuesday it will be another simple bow cake , I also have to prepare for my lesson on Tuesday, I am teaching cherry blossoms this week , last week's peonies went well .

I am also doing a ford mustang carved cake car next week as well . So I need to get started on the elements for that that will need to dry.

thats about it from me this week .
Happy Caking.

Ginn, the favors sound adorable! And the bubbles look like perfection! Seriously, they are PERFECT!

Chelle! Welcome! That caramel swirl sounds amazing! Anytime you want to share recipes....<G> And, yes, I, too would have been mortified to find that what I thought was a casual meet up ended up being with 2 caking judges!! YIKES!

Good luck with the car. They are not my favorite cakes to do.

Cat
