Thank you James.

I find it difficult to know if I have made a good cake or not, I am proud of them for about 10 minutes after making them, then all I see is everything wrong with it.

Great idea!!

Please review. This is the first time I've done any piping. The flowers and cupcakes are piped. Where do you think improvements can be made? Any tips are appreciated. Thanks!

Please could you critique my flowers?  I'm just starting, and this was my first time using gumpaste for the lilies and hydrangea (previously I used fondant - which is what the roses are made of).  I know the angle isn't the best...

Thank you!

Here is one I just finished for a one year old baby girl. The theme was "valentine". This was my first cake that was bigger than an 8 inch "party" cake. It's a stacked 10,8,6. I'm still trying to get the hang of fondant.

Let me know what you think....

Thank you so much! There are always a few spots that have to be "hidden" with decorations. I have the most problem getting a clean cut on the bottom so I have to use some kind of border. icon_sad.gif

I have used a pizza cutter, seems to work really well.

Try my method, and you'll never have to hide another border again! icon_smile.gif

Hi,

 

Just delivered this cake this past Saturday for a Batz Mitzvah.   I know I need practice on my piping technique.  The cake idea was given to me by the person wanting the cake, which she got off google as she stated.

I think that is a normal reaction for creative people.  We always see the flaws and it makes us even better the next time.

Just don't forget to hear the wonder and enjoyment of the people who receive your cakes.

I used it tonight!  It does work like a dream, but I need a little more practice...just a teensy bit of overcutting, but looks better than it ever has!

Hi,
I'll be brave! I do want feedback. I know where my troubles were, but would like to see what else you see. I can take it! This is my 6th or 7th fondant cake, and my first two tier. I did support it properly, with dowels, and then a big dowel all the way through to the cardboard base. I know - the board is horrible, too. I was at my mother's and had none of my equipment.

This was for a family member, as a gift, not a sale cake!
Thanks!
Nancy
