Tips

light frosting.

light frosting.

I use 1/3 to 1/2 of a container of frosting and add a small tub of defrosted cool whip to it. then I frost my cakes as usual. everyone seems to enjoy this lighter version of frosting. (p.s. save the rest of the frosting and use it in between 2 cookies or to frost and decorate marshmallows.).


Rolled fondant -vs- gum paste

Rolled fondant -vs- gum paste

Most of my customers do not like the taste of rolled fondant, so I tell them I will use buttercream icing and get it as smooth as I possibly can with the use of hot boiling water. Dip the metal spatula into the pot of boiling water and smooth down the icing. I use gum paste for some of the decorations. They seem to like the taste of gum paste better than rolled fondant. Which it is better to remove the decoration of gum paste than to romove the rolled fondant from a cake if not wanted.
