I know there a few people on here who can give me some advice, im making a 6inch top tier cake in chocolate with ganache in the middle, can i use it fir the crumb coat?( would it show through the white fondant) or do i just put it in the middle and keep to buttercream for the crumb coat? I need an answer by wed if poss from anyone.
Awww thank you Mike, the damed thing got me so stressed must admit, and i have another 5 cakes to make in the next month, which should be a breeze after this one, ha ha. Dont say its good if you dont think it i,iuts been a learning curve if i'm honest and next time i would do things soooo differently. Now all i have to do is get it there, aaaarrrrrgh.x
Nooooo, she didnt want to, i did a suprise for her too, because she loves my lemon cake i made her a 6 inch just for her and put her name on it and some flowers in the same colour as the big cake, then she can take it home with her and domolish it all by her self. Working fulltime i try and do one aweek, and look after a 4 yr old on the odd day till he goes to school in Sept.
Dont suppose you've made a VW camper van have you? Thats my next cake for a week today.
Mike, its my favourite too, i cut into 3 layers, put lemon curd in the bottom layer, then fresh lemon in the buttrcream then drizzle lemon curd on top of that , yummy. What will you do you cupcakes like?
I think she is having all lemon. Will fill with home made lemon curd and top with butter cream.
She is having a cadbury purple and white colour scheme, so I'm a little worried about the buttercream not being white enough. She wants similar to the last wedding I did (pics on my profile) so a mix of swirls and fondant decs.
No not really, it didnt rain thp but very windy and so cold, i had a wrap so it wasnt too bad. She looked lovely, i had a special thank you fo making her cake and an official photo with the cake, bride and groom, thatmade me feel so special, and a prezzie, 18mths subscription to Good Food mag, bless them , oh yes and a hangover, not nice but worth it, ha ha. I feel i can make anything now, lol, yep campervan next week.!!
2ofsted, when i finally got my act togther after the wedding cake i rung the lady to find out how many were attending the party, when i found out it was for 90 people i thought no way would a cake campervan be anywhere near enought, so i made a 12 inch jam and cream sponge then made a campervan out of icing and put it in the top of the cake on a piece of grass with a road, thanfully she loved it! On to my next one for the end of the week, a first b'day cake,lol. How you doing? anything going on with you? Will post some pics now, also made owl cupcakes, very easy to make.
Hiya Mike, no not really, just googled campervan images and up they came, just fancied one and went from there. Do that for your skydiving cake, i'll be interested to see what comes up for that, do you have any ideas yet?
Love the cake! I went back to using cold butter and eggs as well as beating the life out of the mix after adding the flour and am back to making great cakes.
Have not baked for a week due to end of term madness but need to plan DDs cakes. I need to do 3 but not sure what yet although she has asked for another giant cupcake. Not looking forward to that as it was a pain to cook due to the size of the mould.
mmm, i haven't cooked the dreaded giant cupcake yet, i do worry about cooking a cake so deep, but saying that lots of peeps do so cant be too much of an issue, just find the right one for you and stick to it i guess, let me know how you get on and pics please.
I have a first b'day cake for this weekend, a single tier the week after and 60 anniversary week after that, so busy busy.x
Still havent planned the skydiving one yet. I'll start looking for inspiration this week.
2ofsted. I make quite a lot of giant cups and have a really nice choc recipe if you would like it?. Always cooks to perfection.
Im having a cake break for a few weeks. Then I have some princess cupcakes, a wedding cake on the 17th and a betty boop single tier at the end of the month. I've also got a big candy crush cake to do in sept. That will be my first topsy turvy one. Really looking forward to it all.
