Sorry, the last thing I want to sound like is bashing someone's methods, too late, I'm sure, but that's just completely unnecessary.

But you are bashing - THAT is completely unnecessary.

You guys.....

The experts here are here to HELP. They have no reason to bash you. They aren't trying to be rude. They may not tell you what you want to here but it's not bashing.

I think sometimes y'all forget we are all strangers. Of what interest is to somebody else to bash? Who has time to just sit on here and do that...

If you come to the Internet to ask for help don't expect lollipops and rainbows. Just take the help and grow your craft.

And for what it's worth, being a pastry chef, well known or not doesn't impress me when it comes to cake construction or decorating. Sorry, but a fondant rope is nothing more than a lazy method, at best.

So many things that are suggested here are indeed shortcuts and methods for quick fixes because people want instant gratification, rather than slowing down and learning the correct procedures. True story.

I totally agree!!

I can see how that may sound like a dig. It really isn't. It's the truth. Sometimes, people will offer "advice" that is a shortcut to learning the right way to do something.

I personally would never use a fondant dam. I also wouldn't recommend it to someone else. I use a buttercream dam. Not only is it more common, it's easier! Just pipe a damn!! More importantly, a fondant dam could cause more problems.

The fondant dam doesn't Amish like a buttercream one. This could lead to trapped air causing a huge air bubble on a finished cake.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
