for a moister cake put a pan of water in the oven when your baking this keeps the cakes and cupcakes moist.


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.
