I am watching Amazing Cakes on TLC as I type.
I am learned a lot from watching the bakers create these amazing cakes.
1.) Make a stiffer buttercream by using more powdered sugar to pipe around the egde of the cake and fill in with regular buttercream. The stiffer buttercream will help prevent the filling from squishing out when you stack the
cake on top.
2.) To make the pretty chocolate ganache dripping down the side of a cake look, you make ganache that has a medium consistency and pipe it along the top edge around the cake. The ganache will gently fall down the side of the cake.
3.) You can use modeling chocolate in place of fondant.
I can't wait to try out these tricks I learned while watching Amazing Cakes. Hopefully I can put these tricks to use soon and take photographs. In the meantime, below are some photos of come cakes I made. I am not an extravagant
decorator. I have a more simplistic style.
