I was 'elected' to make the cake for our annual street party this year! I had seen some of the BBQ cakes on this site and wanted to try it myself (thanks to all whose ideas I used!!!) Then I had the idea of making it a 'Coleman Stove" since I live on Coleman St! I also wanted to try my sister-in-laws recipe for a lemon poke cake (my fav!) Overall, it didn't take me nearly as long as I thought it would and it turned out exactly as I had pictured! The Poke Cake was amazing! So moist and lemony… Continue

A lot of people ask me all the time about Edible glue. So here is some information on it. Edible Glue is basically used to glue Fondant, Gumpaste, or pastillaje.
Is it right to use water as glue? The answer is yes. Certain details can be glued with a brush and water, but you have to keep in mind that water is not alcohol based, so it doesnt dry as fast. If you put too much,
you will have a real slippery mess. Continue
So, the question is how much is needed? Think about…

I was anxious to get home from work and finally finish decorating the cakes. I was surprised not only to find a full house, but one of my cakes was pretty much ruined. The beer mug cake was collapsing and all I can see was bulging fondant between the bottom and middle layer. What made things worse, that was my son's Godfather's cake and he was at the house! His wife knew I was baking him a cake as a gift and I was so embarassed to know she was aware that was his cake. I… Continue

Constipated - Stiff, stodgy, or recalcitrant: "united only in a constipated hatred of change of any kind" (John Fowles)
This is exactly what I encountered when I tried to find edible decorations for the wedding cakes I was making back in 1996. Not only were the decorations constipated but the people making and those selling them also suffered from a serious case of constipation!
If anyone remembers the way wedding and birthday… Continue

My biggest fear is that when I make a cake from scratch that it's going to be dry. I saw others suggest the simple syrup technique but How can make the batter....I guess lighter?

Doing a red velvet cake makes me nervous because I want to do it right. I love the richness of it but can be a disaster if not don correctly.

Whew!! What a crazy week last week was! First I made some mini cakes for 2 staff members who were leaving. I had been wanting to try the mini cakes, so I thought "what better way!?" They turned out OK, although hard to cover with the fondant- they're so small! I used a large cupcake and a mini cupcake in top to make a 2-tiered mini cake. I'll post some pics later.
On top of THAT, I had a friend refer a friend who wanted to 50th wedding anniversary cake for Saturday! I had… Continue
