Minecraft

I don't play video games, but my friend assures me that her son, an avid Minecraft fan, loved this Minecraft inspired cake. I'll have to take her word for it!

Conquering Zebra Stripes

I have a real love/hate relationship with zebra stripes. I love how they look when they're done right, but I've never been able to do them right! Until now...

Bahahahahahaha!!!


I finally took the time to look up a tutorial for HOW to do them. (And no, I don't want to talk about what my zebra stripes looked like before. A fellow cake decorator told me they looked like "stringy party streamers. Don't believe her? See, lookie here."


I also tried out a new technique I saw online, where you wrap tiny strips of fondant around straws for REAL party streamers. It worked out really well, if I do say so myself!


I also need to remember to buy a plaque cutter - I'm tired of cutting those buggers out by hand!

Wafer Paper Flowers

I finally got a chance to try out wafer paper flowers, and I have to say, I'm in love! They're so delicate and classy looking. And bonus...you can use wafer paper in edible printers!


I actually switched out the wafer paper/edible image in the picture for a white one with gold print, rather than grey with black print. It looked so much better! Too bad I did it seconds before I had to leave for delivery.
