Cake Central Top Picks
I'm not wild about the molds but really really love chocolate shells so it's a trade off for me. We were looking back the other night into family photos and the girls were picking out my really early cakes...long before I even thought of becoming a party planner much less making cakes professionally. I love looking back on those cakes because of what I was able to do without knowing a single thing about making cakes! They do show how far I've come but they also show how much I knew just naturally and that's always fun to see.
A wedding cake IS daunting. The most important thing to learn to do is provide structure for it. But if you ask most of us we all still wait to put a cake together, come down the next day and see it in a heap on the table! LOL! It's never happened but I'm sure each time it will. The best way to practice on wedding cakes is to volunteer to make one as a gift. This way you can take the risk without risking their money and they are just happy to have cake, any cake, at their wedding. I am simply amazed that I made my brothers wedding cake and it didn't fall over because that was about 10 years before I actually learned how to make and support wedding cakes! This is a great place to learn anything you want to learn...well, this and you tube...not kidding there...it's great.
There are only a few outlets where you can get the actual magazine but you can always get the digital copy here. I know that recently they were running a sale where the digital copy was only $2 an issue! It truly is amazing!
And, yes, like you, I often resort to YouTube for tutorials! People laugh when I tell them that but I always find the help I need and if I have a question someone here is always willing to help!
