Give me a break!

I dove headfirst into wedding season and LOVED it! I juggled remodeling a house, working at the hospital and 3 little kiddos along with 1 wedding a weekend. Guess what? It was a bit much ;)

I pulled my ads offline and am taking July off for my house, kids and my sanity. I look forward to catching the end of wedding season in August, so until then it will only be pleasure baking.

Happy caking,

Diamond Cutters!

Diamond cutters are a great way to add a diamond pattern to a cake. They can be purchased from Global Sugar Art online and only cost a few dollars a piece. You can purchase a simple diamond pattern or a double diamond. This creates a small diamond inside a larger one.

If you are using it on fondant you can press it gently as soon as the cake is covered.
For buttercream it must crust first. Gently press it into the cake and continue around until completely covered. If it is used before the buttercream crusts the frosting will come off onto the cutter.
Add dragees or flowers inside the diamonds or at the crossing spots.
Happy Caking,

Perfect Pan Coating!

I would say the biggest difference between an okay cake and a perfectly smooth cake is the pan coating. If the pan is prepped correctly, then it can be flipped out of the pan right and it will be smooth. Wilton makes a great pan coating that only costs about $3 a bottle. I got tired of running to the store because I ran out, so I found this and have used it religiously!

Equal parts flour, vegetable oil and shortening.
1 cup of each will fill a large cereal bowel and last through several wedding cakes.
I store mine in a tupperware bowel in the fridge. I personally know it lasts for months, but I don't know about longer because I go through it so fast ;).

Happy caking,
