1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Rainbow Bundt! on: April 20, 2009 09:38:10 AM
Can I ask how you got the colors to keep to themselves? The only time I have seen one of these that the colors didn't run together it was a year or more ago by fluffypants and she said she put a layer down baked for 7 min and then put the next color down and repeated. I read the link for the recipe you followed but again hers the colors were not uniform like yours so I guess my question is how did you put the batter in the pan to get such amazing results? They are perfect little rainbows. And Kudos to the hubby for the cloud idea Shocked)

Thanks, I tired the google search route but all I came up with is what I know as monkey bread and a gorilla cake that was just banana cake with a brown sugar top.

I'm not done searching by any means but I have always found craftsters very helpful so I thought I would ask
3  COOKING / Dessert / looking for monkey ideas/inspiration on: March 19, 2009 10:43:02 AM
Okay I haven't been on here in quiet a while, I haven't baked in some time actually. But Spring is major birthday time for my in-law family so I will be busy the next couple of months. I need to find some ideas for my Great Nephew's first birthday. We are going with a Monkey or Gorilla cake (chocolate/chocolate) but I want the whole animal and not just the face. I did see the recent post on here of the cute little monkey face but I'm looking more for the "why did I ever say I would do this" type of challange LOL Grin  I set the bar a little high with my other Great Nephews so I kind of have to make an equal effort. I will post below the other 3 boys cakes to give you and idea of what I can acomplish (with a lot of sweat and tears)

I have to say I got a great laugh at the part about he's chewed up enough of my stuff that he had it coming comment. I think you have to have a house rabbit to fully grasp that...Just this week I lost the dust covers and some of the bindings to two of my precious Dr Suess books. Granted my son left them were she could get to them but why is it that it's always my stuff??

The costume is cute....will you let him trick or treat for Raisins and other good bunny treats?

You do wonderful work. They are both amazing and the chest being your first one makes it even beter. Grin

Can you tell me how you painted the fondant? I have only colored mine. I was watching the Food Network Cake Challange last night and they were painting too I think it was with watered down paste color but they don't really tell you on that type of show. Also how was gum paste to work with?? I want to try it out but I have been hesitant.

This is great!! I think my favorite is the eyes on the cupcakes making them mushrooms that's very original.

How did you make the mushroom? Is the "stem" baked in a can or did you cut down a full size cake. Did you use anything to stablized it so the head didn't slip off? I don't have the best of luck when I have to transport my creations and I even use Wilton dowles to stablize them. I had to find a firmer cake recipe and honestly it's not as good as the moist ones I was using but they don't hold up to the weight. would love some insight. Wink

AS far as mushroom being a little lumpy they sell fondant smoothers, which if it had not been I clearance I probably wouldn't have bought it but anyway, it's just a flat piece of hard plastic with rounded edges and a handle on the back. I'm sure it would be easy to improvize one. I think you could even use a glass and roll it.
7  COOKING / Dessert / Re: first post: creamsicle cupcakes :) on: September 04, 2008 05:16:42 AM
Creamsicles are one of my favorites. Yummmm

As far as the icing yes, more powdered sugar would stiffen it. Sometimes flavoring can break it down a bit depending on what they use as a base.

They still look great, would love the recipe.
8  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Button Cake on: September 03, 2008 05:05:55 AM
Wonderful idea and great job!! One of the best cakes I've seen on here. The buttons are a wonderful idea and I agree that the cushion makes a fabulous topper that ties the whole cake together wonderfully.  Grin
9  COOKING / Dessert / Re: The King from Cars. My first full cover fondant (and made my own) on: September 03, 2008 04:55:38 AM
this is so cool, and i love that you chose The King. I think you did an exellent job and should consider doing them professionally. Maybe just a few just to suport your craft habit.

My habit? what habit? who told you about my habit LOL. What a really need is a 12 step program  Grin

My fear is that I will take something I love and do it for money and then I will no longer love it because of the stress that comes from making things for money and worrying your clients will not be happy with the finished product.

Great job!! cupcakes are quickly becoming a favorite of mine because of the ease of serving and they offer them so well to so many designs. The mix of the 2 sizes also helps with those people that always ask for just a small peice.
