Friday Night Cake Club for 6/14/13 - Page 4

post #46 of 52
Aww thank you so much!! When i first did this cake i wasn't as experienced as i am now so i guess you could say it was my first big accomplishment lol in the cake world. I'm definitely my own worst critic. But with that cake i had several dozen cupcakes and they played off of the cake. I learn something new everytime i do a cake. Lol

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.

Lol i sooo agree Cat, I've been baking all of my life and love party planning and things of that nature but everyone kept telling me i should do this for a living and i kinda just laughed it off but then i was injured by a psychiatric patient several years ago and also went through a ton of health issues so i'm not able to return to work So now that i'm feeling a bit better i figured i would try decorating cakes. I have come a very long way but to be honest I've never made a wedding cake and i'm scared to death to do so, i believe in my abilities but i can't help but think that's someone's special day so that's what stops me. Lol. I am becoming a Wilton instructor soon and i need to get help with things like fondant and gumpaste. So i am sooo glad i found this site. Everyone is awesome!!!

Brenda,

 

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.

Thank you so much Cat, ya i watch you tube tutorials like crazy. Lol that's honestly how i have learned most of what i know the rest is by reading and watching other's and by doing. I'm so happy that i found this site. It's been amazing and awesome to talk with others and help and learn and to switch out Recipes and ideas etc. This has got to be the very best cake site out there. Oh where can i get cc's magazine? I hear about it but don't know where to get it. Thank you.

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!
