Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

Hi everyone. I was hoping to make some christmas roses. Although iv'e never made one. Normal roses I have but not a christmas rose. Iv'e googled etc to get some idea but I think I need some you your fab help !!

 

Iv'e got 2 sizes of rose cutters, not the single cutters though. Can I use these ? As there a slightly different shape? I would love to do wired but I can't learn how to do that yet. I've left it a little late to do that at the mo. Although it's on my to do list lol

 

Thaks so much for any help

Lis - I'm so sorry, I got it the wrong way round!  This is what Les said - 
I think from experience it would be better to go up a tin size although the cake obviously wont come out as deep, if you go down a size your going to need a very very deep tin as this does make a cake at least 3" high.

But of course if you just have too much mix, then you don't have to put it all in.  As you say, you can make a little one too.  That's what I did, so we could taste it

Ok, i will do that. I could use whats left over maybe , what i cant fit in the tin ?

Oh i dont know about ' flair' !!! Katy, lol

If i could be as good as you, id be really happy !

Im sure they are tempted to turn the sign to ' CLOSED' when they see me heading for the shop door lol

I could spend hours looking and "ooh got to have one of them.." Ha!

 

Thanks Katy, your a star

 

;-)

Thats ok sweetheart dont worry ! If i do the 8" size into my 7" ( use what i cant get in ! ) how much cooking time should i knock off ? The eggs are medium size ?

Sorry Lis - I'd signed off and didn't see this last night.  Do you still need an answer?

Thats ok hun, I dont know how much time i would have to adjust by. I dont know how to work it out LOL

Um yes if thats ok ?

 

I dont have the recipe i did for my bday cake anymore otherwise i could use that !

 

Thanks, lis

 

 

Well, Les says three and a half hours for his 8", so I would suggest try 3hrs first, test it with a skewer or knife and if that comes out with a little goo on it, give it another 15mins or so.  Basically, start checking it at 3hrs maximum.  I don't know about you, but I can actually smell when a cake is ready, the aroma in the house changes slightly so I think - should be done now!

Ok, thanks Katy. Are the eggs medium size or large ? Sorry for all the questions.

 

lis

I always used medium Lis, especially if the recipe doesn't specify!

Thank you ! Thats what i thought but i thought i better check to be on the safe side lol !

 

Thank you so much darlin.

I made some Christmas roses for my daughter's wedding cake using Scott Clark Woolley's cutters.  For the center I used my 3 smallest daisy punch cutters for the centers.  Cut a circle, arranged the petals and attached to the circle,  I then cut out 6 of the small daisies, pinched the tips of the petals started attaching them to the center of the petals.  I had the flower in a forming cup(use different sizes so some are open and some are cupped) and after I attached each one I pressed my ball tool into the center to cup them until I got to the top.  The last one I folded into half and then half again so it was pointed and inserted into the center of my "ball"  I used my pointed tool to separate and form the center.  They really took disco dust and sparkled and I thought looked great.  I attached a couple pics for you to see how I did mine; you can also see the wedding cake in my photos

Beverly, these are stunning.  Just lovely

Hi everyone, i would just like to wish you all a very happy christmas & new year.
