8-Petal Cake Pans?? - 2 replies
I’m looking to purchase two 10” 8-petal cake pans but all I can seem to find is the Wilton set of four pans in different sizes. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can find them? The Fat Daddio’s 5-petal pans aren’t the look we’re going for. Thanks in advance.

Fondant Smash Cake? - 4 replies
My client is having a Dr. Seuss-themed party for her son’s first birthday and she requested a smash cake to look like the hat from “The Cat in the Hat.” I don’t want to use buttercream because I know it’ll look sloppy with that specific design, but I don’t want the fondant to harden so much that the baby can&...

Is the Caketrick worth the $? - 13 replies
To those of you who have used the Caketrick Fondant Roller… is it worth the $140? I’m currently using a lightweight roller and it’s killing my arms and back, plus it leaves streaks so I have to go over it with a heavier granite pin to even it out.

Satin Ice - Free Shipping! - 7 replies
I just wanted to share the fact I found Jester’s Cake Supply’s eBay store has 4-5 lb. buckets of Satin Ice for $79.95 with free shipping. It’s the cheapest I’ve found factoring in shipping charges which are ridiculous everywhere. I usually use Fondx but the last few batches I’ve gotten have been grainy with little...

Royal Blue Fondant - 2 replies
I have a cake due on Friday in which the 10” base tier needs to be royal blue in color. Since this was a last-minute order I don’t have the time to have colored fondant shipped. What’s the best way to get a true royal blue color – kneading in color and killing my arms or airbrushing? Any thoughts on this would be appre...

Barn Wedding. June. Buttercream. HELP - 10 replies
I have a wedding coming up in June that will take place outdoors in a barn. The theme is rustic elegance and the bride likes the look of the “messy-iced” cakes that are becoming popular in part, because of Pinterest. I’ve attached a picture to show something similar to what we’re doing.http://www.stylemepretty.com/galle...
