My history in cakes

I started cake decorating when I was 25 years old. I am self taught, and my first cakes were pretty disastrous. But perseverance pays off and eventually, I have been able to come up with a few good cakes. I had to take a break from decorating due to carpel tunnel, so between the ages of 45 and 55, I quit all together, sold all of my pans, and figured I was done. A few years back, I decided to give fondant a try, something I had never ventured into before, but loved the look. My wrists didn't hurt using fondant, so I decided to give cake decorating a try again, and am in the learning stages of fondant, modeling chocolate, gum paste, and attempting to teach myself some Lambeth method cakes using butter cream. I have not attempted any sculpting as of yet. I also found that if I thin down my butter cream and use a little more Crisco, my wrist can tolerate the pressure of the piping bags better, along with putting a wrist strap on immediately after I am done.

Hey Linda - guess what?  Mick and I started to watch a new series to UK TV last night, called Hell on Wheels.  If you don't know it, it's roughly based on post American Civil War and the building of the railroads.  But the first scene was based on Council Bluffs, IA in 1865!  That felt really weird, knowing that you live there.  Was it a coincidence or is there some historical significance to Council Bluffs?

Oh yes, I do remember now you telling me about your cataract surgery.  I had my eyes lasered 5 yrs ago. Doc tried to talk me into leaving one eye for seeing close up. Explained the "brain" thing, which does work, know some who had it done that way. I chose not to. I only use reading glasses when, well reading, or on computer. If the light is really good, don't need the glasses. Don't need them for driving. Don't miss my glasses at all.

Hi Linda, I would also appreciate the instructions and in particular the corn. Goodness I was stunned when I saw the detail. I just had to enlarge it to make sure. What can I say : If you're good you are good...and you are one of the best! :-D

Homemade Marzipan Recipe

Posted on November 30, 2012 at 5:00pm 24 Comments

Homemade marzipan might cost a little to make, but with this recipe, you will get a huge amount of dough to work with for filling candies, covering a cake, or making figures. My family loves marzipan so much that I notice that the batch just keeps getting smaller and smaller because there are little…
