Nu-Wrap Fondant - 0 replies
Hi, if anyone has used Nu-Wrap rolled fondant in the past, I would appreciate getting your feedback. Caljava has a sale on their 10 lb. bucket and I was considering purchasing it. I definitely don’t like Satin Ice, so I was wondering if they’re similar. I’m also purchasing Fond-X. Any information would be helpful. Th...

Wet cake - 2 replies
I won’t say I had an actual disaster but the cake didn’t turn out as expected. I made a cake for my son & daughter in law’s baby shower —it was a vanilla cake with a Nutella buttercream filling – cake was fondant covered. I did use a simple syrup to moisten cake but not very much. – only a little bit. W...

Tres leches wedding cake - 6 replies

I could cover it with buttercream but the stacking still concerns me. Any suggestions? Also, if you have a good recipe I would appre...

Cake-Pops - how much b/c to use - 5 replies
Hello, lately I’ve been getting a lot of orders for cake pops. I haven’t had any problems with them, except that when I read all the blogs and recipes for cake pops, everybody uses a minimum of 1/2 tub of buttercream for 1 box of cake mix. Whenever I’ve done this, the cake pops are extremely sweet and gooey – I only u...

Crumbcoating on cakes - 3 replies
Hi, I have a question – how much buttercream do you use when crumbcoating a cake to get it ready for fondant? Do you add a second layer of buttercream right before putting on the fondant?

Sharp edges on a round cake - 7 replies
Hi, I really enjoy making & designing cakes, but what I have not been able to master is getting those crisp, sharp edges on round cakes – I LOVE, LOVE the way they look – it makes the finished product look very professional.

Cake Filling - how much to use? - 2 replies
I just got an order for a 3-tier cake (10”, 8” & 4”) – the client wants different flavors for each tier, but is insisting on getting a thick layer of frosting in between layers. I usually don’t make it thick – especially on multi-tier cakes because the weight of the top tiers may cause bulging. Is ther...

How do you all feel about making “adult” cakes for bachelorette/birthday parties? I’ve been asked to make one and I haven’t given an answer yet.

White chocolate buttercream filling - 6 replies
Hi, bakers, I’ve been requested to fill a cake with a white chocolate buttercream filling. Whenever I ‘ve done a white chocolate ganache, I’ve used a 3:1 ratio – but since this is for a buttercream-type filling, I’m not sure of the ratio.

Satin Ice - 2 replies
Although I like the way the Wilton fondant covers the cake, I just purchased a large tub of Satin Ice. My question is this – does anyone have trouble with coverage when using Satin Ice? I’ve been experimenting to see how I can best utilize it since many people seem to prefer the taste of Satin Ice. If I do a crumb coating and t...

Boxing Belt - helppppp! - 7 replies
I am part of a team who will be making a birthday cake for a world boxing champion. I am in charge of making the Champion belt – I’m fine with making the actual belt, but I’m open to suggestions about how to make the center piece – it has to be fancy and it needs to look like gold. I know all of you are very talen...
