How many decorators are getting the request to make Fondant looking cakes with Buttercream?
Everyone wants" the look" but no one wants the entire cake to be covered in fondant and nine times out of ten the decorations are all made in fondant and need to adhere to the side of the cake via fonant. I am going crazy!!!
I have a bride who wants a cake to be covered in straight lines of pearls, upon pearls, upon pearls all the way down the side of one whole 14 inch tier but does not want me to use strings of pearls that I know will stick to buttercream but knows she can not afford to have me place a ka-jillion hand made edible itty bitty pearls placed one by one. She does not want to see "the thread" holding the pearls together like on a dress.
