Icing Sheets

Icing Sheets in the Winter! In the winter time, as it gets colder, any brand of icing sheet tends to dry out.  Some brands dry out quicker than others.  Think about it, you have a thin layer of icing on a piece of paper.  It is the moisture that adheres it to the backing or paper and the moisture also keeps the icing sheet plyable.  In the dryer times of year or even dryer climates, the moisture begins to evaporate which can cause several problems. FIrst is obvious, icing sheets…

chalk or petal dust for gumpaste flowers????

I was wondering if anyone  is purchasing petal dust to use on their gumpaste flowers, the price for the petal dust is so high and you get a very small amount.  I decided to purchase some non-toxic chalk from an online cake supplier, it was still very expensive, so my next great idea,lol, was to go to Michaels craft store and purchase Soft Artist chalk Pastels, they are non-toxic and for only $5.00 for a box of 36 plus coupon they are a steal. I used them to dust these flowers: I think the…

Number Cakes

When I do number cakes, I bake cakes in 1/2 sheet pans and usually do two layers and carve the number out of the sheet cakes.  Just mak sure your cakes are slightly frozen before carving.  You can use the leftover cake to make mini cakes or cake pops.  I hope this helps.

100th Birthday Cake - and the client wants me to bake the numbers themselves. Need suggestions....

I have to create a cake for a lady's 100th birthday.  Her daughter wants 3 cakes which represent the numbers, "100" and it needs to serve about 75 people.  I have two choices, bake cakes and put them together somehow, or bake cupcakes, line them up so they look like the numbers and frost them all together.


Any suggestions?  I could put two rectangular cakes together for the number "1", but am clueless what I could use for the zeros, unless I use a wedding cake pan-and then…

Angry Birds and Cakes

I just want to share a few links to some Angry Birds cakes that I found while searching cakes here at work.  I'm simply amazed at both how popular and how good the cakes look.  Personally, I couldn't bake a square chocolate cake, so I wouldn't know how difficult is to make an Angry Birds cake; but - to me at least - most of the Angry Birds cakes out there look amazing!
